SECOND ANNUAL BENEFIT CONCERTS
Every person has the potential to offer something great to their community and to the world, which is why it’s so important to not let bullying and the stigma surrounding mental illness prevent them from making a positive contribution.
You are invited to attend our 2nd Annual Benefit Concerts for No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society on Friday, April 27th, 2018 at the Wolfville Farmers' Market in Wolfville, Nova Scotia at 7:00 pm and in Winnipeg, Manitoba at The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre on Thursday, September 27th at 7:00 pm! The concerts are a fantastic opportunity for artists, businesses, corporations, and all community members to come together and make a difference.
The “No Time for That” Tour, presented by No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society (registered Canadian charity), began in November 2012 when founder, Elsie Morden, started visiting local schools free of charge during her senior year of high school. A victim of severe bullying herself, Elsie, who lives with depression and an anxiety disorder, tells her stories and experiences, and performs songs that she has written, which all relate to bullying, mental health awareness, and how to overcome tough times. It is so important to love yourself, focus on the positive and what makes you happy, and not let people or things bring you down. Elsie and "No Time for That" Tour hope to share their messages of empathy and empowerment with as many youth as possible to prevent and stop bullying, and tackle the stigma surrounding mental illness, while also encouraging youth to follow their dreams, make positive life choices, and respect, support, love, and care for each other.
So far, Elsie Morden and “No Time for That” Tour have visited over 500 schools across Canada. There is still no cost charged to schools, as we do not want costs to be a barrier for any student to see this powerful presentation.
All proceeds from the benefit concerts will ensure that the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society’s “No Time for That” Tour can continue to visit Canadian schools free of charge.
The concerts are a unique semi-formal event in an intimate setting where attendees get to enjoy special acoustic performances by some of Canada's top singer-songwriters including the charity's founder, Elsie Morden. There will be appetizers, refreshments, a cash bar, a silent auction, raffle prizes, music trivia, and many other fabulous fundraising opportunities.
We would like to personally invite you to make a difference and help the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society continue to change the lives of Canadian youth.
Thank you for your attention to this very important cause.
