Bell Let's Talk Day 2014 is supported by a major national promotional and education campaign featuring Clara and fellow Bell Let's Talk spokespeople Stefie Shock, Michel Mpambara and Seamus O'Regan. They're joined this year by new Bell Let's Talk ambassadors from across Canada - former NHL star Joé Juneau, CFL veteran Shea Emry, musicians Robb Nash and Matthew Good, and standup comic Kevin Breel.

On Bell Let's Talk Day, Bell donates 5 cents for every text sent, mobile call and long distance call made by Bell and Bell Aliant customers, every tweet using #BellLetsTalk, and every Facebook share of the Bell Let's Talk Day image. Bell's donations are made at no extra charge to Bell Let's Talk Day participants, though normal long distance or text charges, if any, apply.
