START A CONVERSATION THAT COULD CHANGE A LIFE
This September, I am partnering with Fatema of The Chai Room to help you start a conversation that could change a life.
Thursday, 10th September is a national day of action spearheaded by R U OK? an Australian charity that focuses on suicide prevention, by encouraging people to meaningfully connect with those around them. It is proven that a strong sense of community and belonging are protective factors that give people the confidence to talk about life’s ups and downs. We want to help you cultivate this by equipping you with our favourite conversation starters: Chai and Biscuits.
Purchase our limited edition ‘R U Ok? Cuppa and Conversation’ packs to send to colleagues, friends or family. Carve some time out of your day and have a chat as you sip on chai and nibble on some biscuits. Designed for groups, workplaces and teams, these packs have a minimum order quantity of 5 per order.
Our packs are valued at $25 and include:
4 x Vanilla Shortbread Biscuits dressed in Edible Flowers
3 x 5g Chai Sachets in Original Masala, Turmeric & Raw Honey, Rooibos & Raw Honey (caffeine free).
4 Step Conversation Starter By R U OK?.
$5 from the sale of every pack will be donated to R U OK?.
With everyone scattered across the country in the world of COVID, we will ship these packs to the recipients anywhere in Australia. So get together with friends or talk to your workplace, and together, let’s start the conversation.
ABOUT R U OK?
R U OK?'s vision is a world where we're all connected and are protected from suicide.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and circumstances have made it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, be willing to support those around us. R U OK? is helping Australians know what to say and guide them through conversations that could change a life.
By inspiring people to take the time to ask "Are youOK?" and listen, people can help those struggling with life feel connected long before they even think about suicide. It all comes down to regular, face-to-face, meaningful conversations about life. And asking “Are you OK?” is a great place to start.
You don’t have to be an expert to keep the conversation going when someone says they’re not OK. By knowing what to say you can help someone feel supported and access appropriate help long before they’re in crisis, which can make a really positive difference to their life.
