Mental Health 2011

Mental Health 2011The 2011 Mental Health stamp is the fourth annual semi-postal issued in support of the Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health. Collectively, stamps issued in the past three years have raised close to a million dollars, via a dollar from the sale of every booklet of ten stamps going to the Foundation.

Along with a framed commemorative enlargement of the final stamp, Majeau got to select a mental health charity to receive a $500 donation from Canada Post. She chose La Fondation les petits trésors de l’Hôpital Rivière-des-Prairies to receive the award.

Majeau notes that, “Throughout the competition, strangers, people I didn’t know, would tell me their stories about mental illness and how they related to the puzzle. The rallying effect this has created makes me very happy, I had reached my goal, my drawing was telling their stories—and encouraging others to tell theirs.”
