💛 Blake's 14th Birthday - a donation in his memory to help make a difference 💛

  • Truly Amazing 💛

      27 August 2021

    We are so blown away by your kindness and generosity - nothing we say will even begin to tell you how much we appreciate this. It has grown beyond anything we could have ever imagined.

    Thank you for every kind message, show of support and prayer.

    Thank you for holding our Blake in your thoughts, even if just for a moment.

    But thank you most of all for coming together as a community to donate this phenomenal gift to Gumboot Friday in Blake's memory.

    Mike, you are inspiring change by bringing this out in the open, we really need to have these tough and vulnerable conversations.

    Blake's page is proof that shows how strongly we all feel about helping our young people - and how strongly we feel the need for change.

    It breaks our hearts knowing how many people are struggling out there right now. We need to walk beside them and help them navigate this journey however we can ❤

    A beautiful thing about Blakey was his generosity. Especially with with his time. Whether it was amusing his little brother and sisters, or teaching a young kid how to skate. He always took that opportunity.

    He was thoughtful and giving.... and in some strange way we feel like he is still finding a way to give, from wherever he may be up there 🦋

    I am slowly getting through thanking each of you personally, but in the meantime we wanted to touch base to let you know that you have given us something really positive to focus on and we are incredibly grateful for everything.

    You are amazing NZ 💚

    Take Care & Much Love.. Tash, Seaton, Clayton, Mitchell, Aidan, Mason, Elise and Brooke xx

  • How Do We Thank You Enough...

      16 July 2021

    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
