“Grow Your Moe” for Mental Health

LD Seed Company - "Grow Your Moe" for Mental Health

LD Seed Company – “Grow Your Moe” for Mental Health

Eden Foundation had the pleasure of a visit from Lloyd Wiebe, president of LD Seed Company near Altona.  Lloyd came in to our office with an envelope that included donations from a number of friends and clients who participated in a ‘Grow Your Moe’ fundraising event.

Lloyd also included a note with this message; “For the month of November, LD Seeds put together a “grow your moe” fundraising event to raise money and awareness of men’s health.  At the end of November we met to show off our lovely “moes” and shared our health stories.  Together with customers and family we have raised $1,600.”

“This was our first fundraiser event and we had a great response from our customers.  This was a great opportunity for the men, farmers, family members to reach out, speak out about their health and know there are places available in our own community for support.”

“We would like to encourage other agricultural companies to follow in our footsteps and develop their own fundraising event to create awareness for men’s health.”

“We are thankful to have Mental Health recovery services in our community and would to donate this money to Eden Health Care Services in Winkler.”

Eden Foundation and the whole Eden Health Care Services organization is very grateful for the donation but even more grateful for the fact that a group of people got together, had the courage to speak about men’s health and then to take an initiative to participate in an event that highlights the fact and then do something tangible to help those on a mental health journey to find hope, healing and community.
