Save A Mate
Brisbane to Melbourne suicide prevention small bike challenge saveamate.org
hello and I welcome you to read through and also check out Save A Mate via Facebook and Instagram.
Save A Mate has grown through the need for a grass roots happy adventure raisin for awareness for suicide prevention and mental health issues among our fellow humans.
I have pushed and pushed with my own findings utilising savings and annual leave through my current employment and have always held a view that money isn't a worthy barrier for raising awareness.
That said a small Save A Mate is self funded, it does draw heavily from my own funds and to make it more sustainable I'm asking folk for donations in keeping it alive.
It is making an impression. I have me to some wonderful people throughout my journeys and I have been able to help people realise the mateship around them.
If you like this adventure as much as I do then it would Be great if you could donate towards the sustainability of Save A Mate.
Any amount left over will be put towards Save A Mate becoming sustainable for years to come.
thank you for taking the time in reading this. Make sure you check out the website! saveamate.org or facebook @saveamate2017
and if you are not in the position to be able to donate then that is fine! Maybe you could help me another way..
I am still adding more photos to the short film called 'i care'.
If you would like to be a part of it/star in it! Then please film yourself anyway you like, either holding a sign saying I care, or you could say it verbally.
It will all be added to the film which will play online and also in the towns i am stationed in. This simple statement means a whole lot. In showing the world you care allows those in need the vision that ordinary people do care about them. And this is helpful in allowing people feel needed and wanted within our beautiful world.
that said i am very grateful for the support and if you cant donate financially but would like to contribute then please do send through an I CARE photo to show the world that no matter who or where someone may be that there is always folk who care about their well being. long life life.
its a real nice feeling to know that there are folk who are willing to donate their money towards something like this.
with being a self funded organisation (if you can call it that) its really cool to have the backing of others.
i am real fortunate that my wife's cool with me cruising along rural dirt roads on a small machine and let me do my bit for suicide prevention. its a grouse world we live in and thanks again to the folk who have kindly donated to Save A Mate and also to those who have sent through an I CARE photo to keep that campaign fresh.
anyway thanks again
As you may all be aware the October 10 suicide prevention scooter ride is coming coser every day! One set back tho. I have found my myself in an unmanned predicament where I'll be buying a new Aprilia sr 50 instead of the kymco as I am worried if it will make the distance.
I'd you'd like to chip in for the purchase of the new scooter then that would be really apreciated as save a mate is mainly self funded from my current job within construction.
the scooter will be brought at cost price for $2600 which I'm thankful for the folk at motorcycles r us for doing.
So there you have it folks.
Save a mate is achieved by us all being one on suicide prevention, if you are in a position to help out then that's rad, if not then that's still rad!
Also as the time nears I'll be ramping up the online campaign so stay tuned :)
