A Call-Out to ALL!
Can You Spare ONE Hour of Your Life to Save a Life?
MATES Cafe is purely about saving lives. Do you realise one person completes suicide every 13 hours in New Zealand because they are unable to stand the emotional trauma they are undergoing, often caused by relationship breakdown.
Every 4 minutes 1 New Zealander has suicidal thoughts and needs a MATE to turn to.
MATES need your help to drastically lower the suicide rate... are you with us?
Saving someones life can be to either:
MATES Cafe helps to facilitate people from a place of weakness to a place of strength. Many lives have been saved and thousands of crisis averted over a hot cuppa with a MATE at a local cafe.
MATES facilitators are just like you and me, and from all walks of life: farmers, welders, labourers, business people, professionals, teachers, consultants, unemployed, students, retired and the list goes on.
They have all been through life's journeys, the ups and downs, pulled through the tough times and know how important it is to have a MATE to lean on. Many times our obstacles seem too hard for one person to overcome and just maybe they are so we can learn that we are stronger together.
