Students’ Wappupotti raised more than 22 000 € for the Finnish Association for Mental Health

The original goal was to raise a pot of 500 euros but, with this sum being collected in minutes, the goal was increased to 10 000 euros. During the one-month appeal, the pot eventually climbed to more than 22 000 euros. The purpose of the appeal was to evoke discussion and to shatter the taboo surrounding mental health issues.
