Shadforth fundraising for a great cause!
At Shadforth, we are committed to supporting R U OK? to help spread their message and help prevent suicide.
The sobering reality is that, on average, 8 people in Australia take their own lives each day, and for every tragic death, an estimated 30 individuals make suicide attempts. A staggering 89% of people report knowing someone who has faced the painful struggle of attempting suicide. These statistics are deeply concerning, and we believe it's our duty to help change them.
R U OK?'s vision is a world where everyone is connected and protected from the devastating effects of suicide. Their mission is equally noble – to inspire meaningful connections with those around us and offer support to anyone grappling with life's challenges.
Our role is clear: we aim to make a tangible impact by fundraising for R U OK?. We are encouraging our employees, partners, and stakeholders to take a moment to ask the simple yet profound question, "Are you OK?" and genuinely listen. This collective effort can make a significant difference by fostering connections and providing vital support to those in need.
Thank you for standing with us as we strive to make a difference and contribute to a brighter, more connected future for all.
