Every person has the potential to offer something great to their community and to the world, which is why it’s so important to not let bullying and the stigma surrounding mental illness prevent them from making a positive contribution.
The No Time for That Tour, presented by No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society (registered Canadian charity), began in November 2012 when founder, Elsie Morden, started visiting local schools free of charge during her senior year of high school. A victim of severe bullying herself, Elsie, who lives with depression and an anxiety disorder, tells her stories and experiences, and performs songs that she has written, which all relate to bullying, mental health awareness, and how to overcome tough times. It is so important to love yourself, focus on the positive and what makes you happy, and not let people or things bring you down. Elsie and "No Time for That" Tour hope to share their messages of empathy and empowerment with as many youth as possible to prevent and stop bullying, and tackle the stigma surrounding mental illness, while also encouraging youth to follow their dreams, make positive life choices, and respect, support, love, and care for each other.
So far, Elsie Morden and “No Time for That” Tour have visited 500 schools across Canada. There is still no cost charged to schools, as we do not want costs to be a barrier for any student to see this powerful presentation. All proceeds from this benefit concert will ensure that the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society’s “No Time for That” Tour can continue to visit Canadian schools free of charge.
