We are creating Thankfulness week on the 24th - 30th June 2019

Our mission is to battle the suicide rate, depression rate and inspire people in the last week of June 2019 by using a TV advert we have created, Radio, Social media and Newspapers adverts.

WATCH the TV commercial that we have created here:

How will this make a change? With the message that Thankfulness = Happiness. Thankfulness is practically replacing negative thoughts that bring us down with positive thoughts that lift us up.

If one less person commits suicide, one less person gets depressed, one more person gets inspired, this will all have been worth it.

We have a donor who generously will match dollar for dollar up to $10,000 which is an amazing headstart.

We are also seeking media outlets to help us promote this advert through any upaid air time/ page space that they may have over this period.

Also, please help us by sharing on your social media the advert when we release it in on June the 24th. Just follow @begreatNZ.

Thank you so much for helping us reach New Zealand with this great message!
