On the 17th of July it would have been Blake's 14th Birthday.

As many of you may know, we tragically lost our beautiful, funny, adventurous, brave boy to suicide in December last year. These have been our darkest darkest days, our lives forever changed.

This is the stuff nightmares are made of, and we will do anything in our power to help prevent another family having to travel this heartbreaking journey.

Unfortunately, through our experience it has become glaringly obvious that NZ has massive mental health epidemic on it's hands.

In honour of Blake, we would like to make a 'birthday' donation to Mike King's Gumboot Friday/I Am Hope charity.

Mike and his team have tirelessly advocated for our young NZ'ers in mental health crisis, to give our young people access to free counselling and mental health support.

We would be ever so grateful if you could give-a-little in Blake's memory. Please help Gumboot Friday help our kids.

Thank you...Much love, The Dalley Family.

How Do We Thank You Enough...  16 July 2021

Posted by: Tash Dalley

Overwhelmed, Mind-Blown, Grateful.

Grateful to our very core.

Thank you so very much to all of the beautiful people making a difference.

This is YOUR work - take a look at what you are doing for our children's mental health 💛 we are humbled.

Your generosity has brought us to our knees. We are sitting here right now with tears streaming down our faces.

It is bittersweet, we shouldn't have to fundraise for this - we shouldn't be losing our children to suicide. But we are.

Very early on after Blake left us, we vowed to do whatever we could to prevent another child from struggling, another family from travelling this heartbreaking journey.

What started off as putting Blake's birthday money to a good cause, has grown beyond our belief. Because of you.

Thank you is not enough. But there are no other words. Thank You for remembering Blake, for donating, for sharing, for helping our youth, and for all of your support while we walk our new path.

And Thank You Mike King for being the strong voice NZ'ers need right now.

Much love and appreciation - Tash, Seaton, Clayton, Mitchell, Aidan, Mason, Elise, and Brooke xxx
