Lifeline For Lifeline is calling on Australians to donate to the leading crisis support and suicide prevention service on NOVEMBER 1 and help it answer the one million requests for help received annually.
Lifeline Australia Chairman John Brogden said: “You don’t have to wear something, do without something, make something, sell something or run somewhere… all you have to do is give.”
“We don’t have the resources to answer every call immediately, which is particularly heartbreaking when you consider the enormous strength and courage it takes for someone to reach out when they’re struggling.
“It costs $26 to fund one call with one of our Crisis Supporters. That $26 – which goes towards costs like recruitment, training, equipment and supervision – can make a profound difference. It can save friends, families and whole communities the heartache of losing someone to suicide.”
