TEN DOLLARS TO PROVIDE LIFELINE
I started the campaign Stepping Out of the Shadows as a community initiative for people who have lost loved ones to suicide.
The aim is to get the community to step out and be a ‘Lifeline for Lifeline’ because the organisation struggles for funding. If Lifeline can’t get funding, it can’t train more counsellors and volunteers.
If Lifeline can’t answer all these calls, that’s not great for the community.
While Lifeline gets some government funding, it gets nowhere near enough funds to do the valuable work it does every day.
The work Lifeline does is invaluable to our community of Western Australia. Community leaders will be stepping out with me for this campaign.
I’ve been blown away by the amount of people who want to step out but also people wanting to work collaboratively.
If you want to be a ‘Lifeline for Lifeline’, all I’m asking for is $10.
Can you imagine if all of the Community Newspaper Group readers gave $10? Wouldn’t that be amazing?
