Shave for Mental Health

By Brooke Willis

Look who's doing a fundraiser!

 Kia Ora awesome people,

you must be wondering what this is all about…

 

Basically, I will be shaving my head to help support the work of the Mental Health Foundation. 

I wanted to fundraise for this cause as it hits very close to home as I can imagine that it does for a lot of people.

I’ve been through some hard times in regards to mental health, but I couldn’t have gotten through it if I didn’t have the help and support to be able to get out of the horrible place I was in.

For me, it was my parents. And I’m so lucky to have them and I’m grateful that they saw when I wasn’t myself. 

Without them, I might not be here right now. That being said, I want to be able to fundraise to be able to help anyone else that may be in need of resources or support.

 

This will be a challenge for me - but every day can be a challenge for people who may not have the resources they need to maintain a positive well-being and function well in their everyday lives.

 

Now the important stuff, the why:

Nearly 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, and I don’t want them to face it on their own. Your donation will help the Mental Health Foundation of Aotearoa provide people, workplaces, schools and communities with the tools they need to build positive mental health and well-being.

I want to raise at least $500 so please donate today!

Every little bit counts!

 

Thank you in advance,

Brooke

Dear Brooke, Having experienced depression, and subsequently anxiety, I do know first hand exactly what it feels like. I do know how the “black hole” envelopes every second, every minute of your day, until you finally find a tiny glimmer of light to lead the way way out of our unbearable pain, grief, unhappiness. Like you, my family was paramount in my recovery. Without my brother and sister’s support, I too would have chosen to not be here. I’m not sure how my meagre donation can assist in fighting mental illness overall, but you have impressed me Brooke, at your age, that you are prepared to part with your lovely hair for a cause you are passionate about. I admire your strength and courage, and look forward to seeing your beautiful face as your profile pic very soon.

Good on you Brooke. I shaved 5 years ago and the personal growth was astonishing let alone the donation I made to St John's Ambulance. Great stuff. I did my shave in July so quite cold but I'm sure you can pull off the beanie look 💜 PS the opportunity to go back to my natural hair colour was also a bonus 😜. I'm having a struggle right now so this is the perfect timing to lift me up a bit. Thanks for having a kind heart and being such a positive influence.
