“Spouse’s Got Your Six” fundraiser seeks to raise awareness for PTSD in law enforcement

A new fundraiser for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), called “Spouse’s Got Your Six,” is aiming to also raise awareness specifically about PTSD in law enforcement.

The fundraiser is offering stainless steel rings in black or silver with a blue line in the middle for $20. The money will go towards supporting Ontario officers and their families, as all net proceeds go to CAMH.

“Spouse’s Got Your Six” is the brainchild of Kim Meunier, a spouse of a serving OPP sergeant diagnosed with PTSD.

“I want to raise awareness and provide opportunities for others to seek help,” Meunier says.

Advertisment

The initiative started last month and is expected to run until January 2020 or longer if there is more interest, according to Meunier.

“It’s been overwhelming — the outpouring support received so far,” she says. “I’m hoping to continue to grow this initiative so I can add a few more organizations to donate to in the near future, such as Boots on the Ground. It is heart wrenching to have heard so many stories from purchasers suffering… It’s unbelievable how many first responders are affected.”

To order your ring, email helpingthoseinblue@gmail.com. Sizes 6-12 are available (full sizes only).

For more information, visit the Facebook page “Spouse’s Got Your Six” or call or text Meunier at 705-266-5177.

    Scott thanks for your msg. I just received your cash via Canada post and rings have been shipped. Mail service is slower during the holiday season hence why it took a while to receive your funds. If I can assist you with anything else, please let me know.
