Frucor Suntory are excited to support Gumboot Friday and Make a Difference to young Kiwis in need.
Together we can Make a Difference!
We're getting behind the I Am Hope Gumboot Up Friday this year to help raise funds for free and timely counselling.
A subject close to our hearts is mental health awareness and making checking in with each other part of our normal way of working.
Gumboot Friday is an opportunity for you to connect with your colleagues in a fun way and bring mental health awareness to life!
Give up some cash to a great cause! When you donate here, you're helping the I Am Hope team reach their goal to provide mental health care and support to young Kiwis when they need it most.
Having depression is like walking through mud every day. So on Friday 28th May, we ask you to show your support, put your gumboots on, give a gold coin, and take a walk in their shoes for just one day.
Last year in New Zealand 175 young people died by suicide and it is estimated another 3500 attempted to take their own lives. While Government agencies are doing their best some young people are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they so urgently need.
The 2019/2020 campaign raised $2,000,000 and assisted with the following:
- 15.5K counselling sessions
- 3,850 counsellors registered
- average cost per session: $125
- average wait time for help: 48 hours
100km for $100k
