Let’s save a life, Lets help EVERYONE! EVERY life matters!

By Izak Bloomer-Kros

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

I have decided to fundraise for R U OK? to help spread their message and help prevent suicide. 

About 8 people take their own lives in Australia every day.

For every death, it’s estimated another 30 people will attempt suicide.

89% of people report knowing somebody who has made an attempt.

I want to help change these numbers.

R U OK?’s vision is of a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide. 

Their mission is to inspire everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and support anyone struggling with life.

By inspiring people to take the time to ask, “Are you OK?” and listen, we can help people who are struggling with life to feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

Thank you so much for your support, together we will make a difference.

PLEASE READ & PLEASE SHARE!
I'm not going to sugar coat nothing, and I am certainly not ashamed to share this! This is a huge move for me being so brave and bold to share this! I've been struggling so hard with mental health issues and have been asking for help for over 5 months now!
So after a HUGE battle with the public system, they tell me they cant help me and was told to get private health for my issue..... After a massive battle, I finally got accepted into one facility the other day 1500km from home, after having my Dr sending referrals Australia wide.....
I recently lost my job and business as a support worker and not allowed to drive for 12 months, due to a 35 minute seizure. I am not asking for sympathy, I just want to share a story most cant!
They wonder why people suicide etc
As much as I am passionate about mental health, and lost my business, I will continue to fight and raise funds for ALL OF US!
TO SUPPORT US EVEN MORE COULD ANYONE:
A: Even donate $1 to my cause
B: Recommend a better cause!
I am determined to raise $1400 tonight. My first lot of donation containers were delivered to local businesses yesterday and today and have a lot more coming!

Struggling to get help!

Thursday 6th May
I am having the worse time in my life, I have been asking for help for 5 months, I am even struggling to even get into a private hospital because I had a seizure, I have contacted all hospitals from the Gold Coast to Cairns, and I am still being judged......

See you at Peregian Beach Markets

Monday 26th Apr
YAY we have a lot of merchandise and we will be at the Peregian Beach Markets this Sunday. Look forward to seeing you all there. Can't wait to be in all yellow.......

Why am I doing this you might ask?

Monday 5th Apr
I am so passionate about mental health, with youth, adults and the aged.

I am not afraid to admit I have had my battle with depression, and sometimes still fight it, however my passion in  life  is making sure everyone else OK!

It's easy for me to care for others, as it makes me so happy seeing the happiness and laughter I can bring, so PLEASE take a moment yourself and ask AM I OK? and then ask others ARE U OK?

Please take a moment to take care of yourself and others around you.!

If you can even donate $1 thats a huge help to this amazing cause.
