Depression Support Network Toowoomba has received the $35000 from Jupiter’s Gambling fund. While it is not for rent, it is for:
- Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (November 8 and 9 at DSN),
- a people mover so people won’t have to keep getting a taxi or bus
- Volunteer training
- Community training etc.
So while this is great, we still need help with rent. Please go to http://www.gofundme.com/dsntwmba and gofundme! Remember, ALL money goes to the operation of DSN. We are completely volunteer run. So we must depend on the kindness of strangers.
Thanks to our:
- 3 Glorious Volunteers, CJ, Sonja and Naomi – with thanks to all those at the Carnival who donated
- The glorious gardeners (you know who you are)
- Gofundme donors.
Without you all, we would be dead by now. Instead we are working to stop the suicidal end up dead, so please please help us to help them.
There is another ASIST course, November 8 and 9 so be there or be square.
We have just found out that we have lost our main source of funding. This means that a 10 year legacy of us helping those in need will end. If there is anyone out there that can help us with donations of money to keep the only mental health drop in centre in our town keep our doors open please let me or my sister know. We are desperate as the donor that pulled the funding was the only source of funding we have as we rely on goodwill from the public and no funding from the government. We are sending letters asking for support but we only have until the end of June to find someone to take over funding or the doors will close for good. I know that there are services that can help the mentally distressed but we are the only ones who seem to focus on the person and not the diagnosis. So if you can help us with either a small or better yet a large one to keep us alive.
PLEASE LET US KNOW. WE REALLY NEED IT.
OR donate now.
If you help us, we would be able to play a vital part in suicide intervention and making sure our volunteers are trained to save a life.
What price a life?
You can use your surname as a reference, so we know where the donation came from, and can forward a receipt to your email address if you require. Please let us know. (All donations are Tax Deductible and we hold DGR status). On behalf of all of our members, we thank you for your generosity.
