Goldeneye, presented by RBC, is a Montreal collective raising funds and awareness on mental health issues. Over the past 5 years, it has helped raise over 400 000$ for the Mental Illness Foundation & the Douglas Foundation. Let’s Bond’s young professionals seek to accomplish 4 goals towards mental health; awareness, prevention, comprehension and mobilization.

Founded in 2011, it aims to continuously make an impact in helping those suffering from mental illness by promoting awareness and acceptance, organizing engaging events, and by providing financial support to leading foundations working within the field.

The Let’s Bond committee members all saw the need to encourage the public to understand that mental illnesses are common, normal, and most importantly, curable. Thus, they decided to target young professionals and entrepreneurs – a fast-paced and pressure-driven generation that is able to initiate change and communicate this ever-growing awareness. As President Chris Harden explains – “By people accepting it for what it is, those suffering are more comfortable with seeking help, something that is difficult to do with this sort of disease”.

100% of all profits raised and donations received go directly to the Mental Health Foundation and The Douglas Foundation, both out of Montreal.
