We hear it on the radio and see it on the TV all the time these days, young adults who have lost their battle with depression, anxiety and related conditions and illnesses. It's a harrowing thought that someone with their whole lives ahead of them would be pushed to the limit where they feel the only way out is self harm or worse, to take their own life.
Our region has been shocked several times this year by such occurrences as we're sure you know, really hitting home with a lot of people in our community and being that the Illawarra car scene is such close knit group, we figured we'd start to organise some ways to help raise awareness as well as raise funds for the Beyond Blue support service that do such an awesome job.
To get things started, thanks to the guys at D'zinea SIGN & Airbrushing we now have IMCC stickers available to display on your car, bike, home, business, tool box or wherever else you want to slap them up.
Available in white (silver coming soon) the 180 x 80mm stickers will be priced at $5 each, with all proceeds going to Beyond Blue.
From this week the stickers will be available to pick up from Frankies Auto Electrics at Albion Park rail (Mon, Wed & Thur) and D'zinea SIGN & Airbrushing. Both located on the Princes Hwy, Albion Park Rail. We will also have them on hand at the next Monthly Meet in December.
We're excited to see everyone get behind this so we can raise some much needed funds to help the awesome team at Beyond Blue keep doing what they're doing, supporting those in need.
At some stage in our lives, yourself or someone you know may suffer from depression or anxiety and with current statistics showing that one in 16 young Australians is experiencing depression and one in six is experiencing an anxiety condition, we need initiatives like Beyond Blue to be there in support.
If you ever feel like you ever need to talk to someone, reach out to us or another enthusiast. We're all like minded people and we're sure the majority would be more that willing to chat. We'd also urge you to contact the Beyond Blue group who are equipped to offer support and counselling to anyone in need.
