We have shared wildflower seeds across the country to encourage people to take a moment to reflect on their growth during recent tough times and their hopes for the future. By sharing thousands of plantable bookmarks, we aimed to encourage people to take a moment to reflect on how far they have come in the face of all the unprecedented challenges of the year and to plant seeds of hope for better times ahead.
All the seeds need to grow is a little water and soil, a symbol of how we don’t need much at all to blossom – just a little care.
However you grew over the last few months, it’s remarkable – by simply getting up in the morning, brushing your teeth, taking a breath, having the strength to seek help, or to talk to someone about how you’re feeling. If we dig deep, every one of us will have had moments of growth and strength during the toughest of times.
Please note: The incredible reaction to our Reflect and Grow bookmarks has exceeded all expectations so unfortunately we are unable to send any more out in time for World Mental Health Day on October 10th (over 4,000 bookmarks have gone out to workplaces, schools and communities around Ireland in the last week!). We will have more to send out in the coming weeks and your requests will be noted. In the meantime, we have many more resources we can share in time for WMHD and resources that are free to download here so please do get in touch. Thanks!
