newsXpress Supports R U OK? Day with Fundraising and Other Activities

With R U OK? day now passed, an annual day of action aimed at preventing suicide. This year, newsXpress joined forces with Henderson Greetings and R U OK? to help promote the day and raise funds for the cause. Here’s a look at some of the activities we took part in.

To help raise awareness of R U OK? day, we placed collection tins in all our stores. We also sold R U OK? pins and wristbands, with all proceeds going to the charity. In addition, we held a bake sale at our head office, with all proceeds going to R U OK?. We’re proud to have raised over $500 for the cause!

In addition to fundraising, we also promoted the R U OK? message through in-store activities and displays. We encouraged our customers to have conversations with loved ones about mental health and wellbeing, and provided information on where to get help if they or someone they know is struggling. It’s so important that we start these conversations—after all, one conversation can change a life.

R U OK? days provide an important opportunity for us to check in with loved ones and see how they’re really doing. This year, newsXpress is proud to have supported the day through fundraising and awareness-raising activities in all our stores. Let’s continue the conversation all year round and remember that one conversation can change a life.

Mental health is something that touches all of us in one way or another, which is why initiatives like R U OK? day are so important. Here at newsXpress, we’re proud to be supporting the cause once again this year and we hope that our efforts will help make a difference in our local communities. If you’re ever feeling like you need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our team members—we’re always happy to chat.
