All money raised in Tram Team Pull event goes towards Lifeline Aotearoa
We are extremely honored to partner up with Lifeline Aotearoa for this event. New Zealand has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and it is a conversation that is often swept under the mat; this the reason why we want to give back to those that are on the front line.
A bit about Lifeline Aotearoa.
Lifeline Aotearoa has been helping New Zealanders in crisis for over 50 years.
Our free community helplines (Lifeline 24/7, Suicide Crisis Helpline, Kidsline) as well as our text support service HELP (4357) are answered by qualified counselors and trained volunteers from call centres in Auckland and Christchurch. We also provide specialist counseling and corporate and volunteer training.
We receive over 10,000 calls from people of all ages and ethnicities who are struggling with a wide range of issues including relationship and work problems, mental health, grief, abuse, bullying and loneliness. We help an average of 6 people a day at high risk of suicide.
Calls to our helplines are free, confidential and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We receive no government funding for these helplines and reply on the public donations.
