ETC... A House of HOPE for those near Suicide.
564 KIWIS KILLED THEMSELVES THIS YEAR.
3 PEOPLE HERE IN NZ KILL THEMSELVES EVERY 2 DAYS!!
If we don't do something NOW? WE WILL lose 122 MORE by Christmas.
We are Francis Heke & Chante Neblett from True North & Huwaiu & we have been overwhelmed by the amount of people coming to us that are truly at the edge. We are not going to accept this anymore.
Our mission is to abolish this hideous truth & the only way to do this is to do it TOGETHER.
WE HAVE A PLAN. The EMERGENCY TRANSTORMATION CENTRE (ETC)
1. To create a space for people who are in the RED ZONE to come & stay for a period of time for FREE.
2. During their stay at ETC they will participate in our Emergency Transformation Course that is designed to change their state from suicidal to FULLY ALIVE.
3. Every person that comes through the ETC Programme will leave an ETC Representative who will then enter back into society with purpose & the ability to give hope to others. This is their aftercare programme, FOR LIFE.
WHAT WE NEED:
1. We need a home base for ETC. A space large enough to accommodate 15 people, 24/7.
2. Supplies. We need enough food, linen, appliances, toiletries, creative materials (yoga mats, art supplies, musical instruments), air travel sponsorship, first aid kits, an 0800 number & advertising for every day in every year until 564 becomes 0.
3. We need YOU to ask yourself: How can I help? And...
HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE NEED TO DIE BEFORE YOU DO? Being in mind by the time you read this we have lost at least 3 kiwis.
4. SIGN THIS PETITION & share it to every nook & cranny of every part of this amazing country.
We thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts for taking ACTION. You could save a life today, maybe even the life of someone you love.
