Please INVEST into the healing of men in our city! We need your help!

Any generous souls out there wanting to invest directly into healing of men in our city?

Myself + my brother Anton from FUSH are bringing over the Men’s Medicine crew from Australia early December to facilitate some healing sessions desperately needed for men in Christchurch City.

We have inadequate mental health care, countless suicidal/depressed/angry/hurt men and money really shouldn’t be the obstacle in them receiving help! THIS IS WHERE WE BREAK GENERATIONAL CYCLES OF ABUSE!

So here is the reality- it’s a pair of barbershop/fish & chip shop owners who are going to make this happen this year for the sake of a community we care about deeply.

Basically we need to raise 20k to run these initiatives + have less than a month to come up with the funds. We want 200 men in our city helped in a REAL way before Christmas.


If you can help at all then please donate whatever you can as it takes us all doing a little bit to make this a reality! And yes it might take a few of us to pull together but since I know first hand how many men need help but can’t afford it or it’s just not accessible/available I’m going to find a way to cover the cost and have as many men receive help as possible!

If you can help with $1 or $100 or even $1,000 then please reach out!

I know men right now who have guns to their heads and need a breakthrough! A session with the team at Men’s Medicine could be this breakthrough!

We’ll be facilitating the following with these funds: Three hui with Men’s Medicine with a MAX of 50 attending for the following groups of men -

1. RANGATAHI. This hui will be exclusively for 13-18 year old young men.

2. HELPERS. This hui will be exclusively for those in the sector working tirelessly to help others. Counsellors. Social Workers. Therapists. Youth Workers. Nurses. Doctors. Community workers. We see you. We want to invest in you.

3. All MEN. 18+ and if you need this then this hui is for you.

4. A Men’s Medicine Walk. This will be by invitation by Matt Brown of My Fathers Barbers.

Use of funds

We are facilitating THREE separate hui + ONE walk with Men’s Medicine from Australia. Four events for those in Christchurch. The costs we are fundraising for are to bring the Men’s Medicine crew (4 people) over from Australia (covering all the logistics of flying them here/accomodation/food etc) to be able to facilitate these events at NO COST to those attending. Men’s mental health needs to be taken seriously and cost shouldn’t be an issue to receiving help.
