The North Country Out of the Darkness Walk to Fight Suicide is in its tenth year, and will once again feature The Depressed Cake Shop at this year’s Walk. The motto of the Depressed Cake Shop is “Where there is cake, there is hope. And there is always cake.” We are a global COMMUNITY that promotes SELF CARE through the power of CREATIVITY and uses it to raise awareness and donations for mental health initiatives around the world.
Specifically, Depressed Cake Shop is a pop-up bake shop, comprised of gorgeous themed baked goods decorated in various shades of grey, sometimes with a pop of color to represent hope. The grey symbolizes the grey cloud that can descend over a beautiful world when someone is struggling with mental health conditions. The pop of color signifies hope: the hope we all have, the hope we lend to someone who is in need.
Depressed Cake Shop is a stunning visual reminder of mental illness, and is meant to get people thinking and talking about the subject in a new way. It’s a perfect fit for the North Country Out of the Darkness Walk in Lake Placid, and organizers hope that the creativity will astound participants at the Olympic Oval on Sunday, September. Bakeries and hobby bakers interested in donating baked goods may contact Amy Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please plan to come out to support the walk and the Depressed Cake Shop 11:30-3, Sunday, September 30 at the Lake Placid Olympic Oval, 2634 Main St, Lake Placid, NY 12946.
