Because the true Spirit of Christmas is about giving, in addition to all our wonderful presenters and sponsors, we have also partnered with a feature charity. In 2019, select Spirit of Christmas activities, including our Tree of Hope, will raise awareness for and benefit the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. MHFNS directly impacts lives and helps change the way people think about mental health.
