Skate For Hope
We are a charity mission that is focused on inspiring a demographic of people with mental health issues.
Skate for Hope informs, educates, inspires and brings hope to the people of New Zealand. In a country with one of the highest suicide rates in the world, especially among male youths it is vital to find avenues that can spark hope, raise awareness and connect with an audience so often left un-catered for. I believe that Skateboarding can save lives. While skateboarding from Cape Reinga to Bluff from November 2015 to January 2016 , I will be visiting schools, churches, skate parks and youth centres to tell my story and encourage others to stand their ground and take action against mental health issues. My goal is to spread awareness about depression and other mental health issues and educate New Zealanders about how to deal with them, as well as raise funds that i will donate to non-profit organisations that provide support for people with mental health issues and spread the word about how skateboarding can help save lives. We aim to bring hope, break stigmas, inspire change and educate the masses. A percentage of the funds raised through this page will go towards completing the Skate Mission, with regards to travel, food, resources etc. The rest will be donated to these non profit organizations, Key to life trust, Ti Taitimu Trust, Anxiety Support NZ and Lifeline NZ, to help them continue the amazing work they are doing.
In a world where apathy is often the currency I believe a little hope can go a long way.
Please donate and help us to help others.
Many thanks and much love.
