#BellLetsTalk day

Today was a stressful day, it’s actually been a bit of a week..  Quite fitting that today was the day Bell Canada held its annual Bell Let’s Talk Day to raise awareness and funds for mental health.

It was pretty awesome to watch the Twitter feed roll by all day long with tweet after tweet using the hash tag #BellLetsTalk.

In among the retweets and plugs by celebrities were the real people, giving us glimpses into their world at 140 characters at a time. I applaud each of them for speaking up, it takes guts to #endthestigma.

For each tweet with the hash tag, txt message, phone call or share on FaceBook Bell Canada donated 5¢ to mental health initiatives.

It’s pretty impressive the impact this campaign has each year. With total interactions north of 120 million, the power of social media is obvious.

Keep in mind this is a Canadian campaign that was trending world wide throughout the day on Twitter! Funds raised will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $6,000,000.00!

Pretty inspiring! Where else will this beast called social media lead us?…
