On Friday 28th May, show your support by wearing your gumboots to work and make small donation


Mike King and the team at I Am Hope brings you Gumboot Friday!!!!

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.

For people struggling with depression, it can feel like walking through mud every day. So on Friday 28th May, we're asking you to show your support. Put your gumboots on, give a gold coin (or an internet banking transfer), and take a walk in their shoes for just one day. It's a fun way for kiwis to join in the mental health conversation, while raising money to provide free and timely counselling for any young person in need.

Call To Action: On Friday 28th May, show your support by wearing your gumboots to work and make small donation by way of a gold coin or online transfer to 38-9020-0336055-01 (with reference Medcall or Care on Call).
