We kindly ask and indeed plead for your help, support and blessing as we aim to raise $150,000 for a decent tour bus.
Our work in reaching, impacting and changing the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people around Australia is our passion, love and commitment...but we need proper, safe and reliable transport to cover the hundreds of thousands of kms we need to travel.
Please help us by doing three things:
1. Watch the short video.
2. Use the GoFundMe link and transfer the most generous gift you are able to.
3. Share this link with as many friends and family as possible. Thank you!!
Mental Illness, major depression and anxiety, among other personal battles, severely bombard the lives of countless teens in schools across this nation. Propelling them to making poor and unresolved choices which in many cases leads to life threatening actions and even suicide.
Music and the arts presented by 'role models' is a powerful and effective way to impact and change lives like nothing else can.
For 29 years now, Iron & Clay have been consistently booked solid in thousands of schools across this nation. Taking 'programs' into schools in the form of 'concert presentations', yet addressing and tackling the hard issues teens are battling with and yes...literally changing lives!
We believe the best touch...is the human touch. The one that really counts. The one that reaches and heals where medication and treatment cant.
Our old, 1997, Mercedes Benz Vario Bus...finally has died. It has blown and engine on the side of the Motorway. Whilst it performed quiet well for the best part of seven years...it reached it's life span.
We urgently need a new bus. Touring and traveling for up to 9 months of the year...with hundreds of thousands of kilometres...we must have a safe and reliable vehicle. A bus that will not just be a bus...but rather a home on the road. One that will provide some 'normalcy' and indeed tolerance to the massive distances travelled by our team of gifted, talented yet mission minded performers. Please...PLEASE help us!
