Nothing but good news for you to feast your eyes on.

Bell Canada is a Canadian telecommunications company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. On January 21, Bell ran their annual ‘Bell Let’s Talk’ campaign.

The event is an annual one-day advertising campaign where money is donated to mental health funds based on the number of social media and communication “interactions” that include the branded hashtag, #BellLetsTalk. Every social media interaction help raise funds for this very worthy cause, well done to all involved.

Some prominent members of the MMA community spoke out about their experiences with mental health. Max Holloway, Ariel Helwani and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson all shared their experiences with mental health.

Mike Chandler, fresh off his outstanding knockout win over Dan Hooker at UFC 257, got a nice call of congratulations after the big win. Ric Flair, the stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing(woooo), wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun, jumped onto a video call to congratulate the newly signed UFC lightweight. Great Stuff from “The Nature Boy”.
