Lets Start Some Good...OneWave is all it takes
Aloha OneWave Community!
2 years ago OneWave launched at Bondi Beach with the dream of giving people hope they can beat mental health issues, by creating a supportive community connected by the ocean.
Thanks to your amazing support we have spread to 50 beached Worldwide by sharing a simple recipe of saltwater, surfing, good mates and Fluro Friday's to help people tackle mental health issues.
Last week we had the launch of our new program 'The OneWave Surfing Experience' - a 12 week learn to surf program experience for people experiencing mental health issues. This is something we have been working on for the past year and we are so excited to share the positive effects from our pilot program. You can check out the 10 minute documentary here...
THERE IS STILL SO MUCH MORE WE CAN DO...
Too many people are battling alone. 1 in 5 people experience mental health issues each year and 65% of these people never seek treatment. We lose 6 people every day to suicide in Australia.
Our dream is to start 20 million conversations about mental health and and get 10,000 people in the ocean so they experience how good it feels to catch a wave and openly talk about mental health.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN
We have launched a crowd funding campaign at www.startsomegood.com/onewaveisallittakes. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support our dream of getting 10,000 people in the water who are experiencing mental health issues and we have 20 days left to do it. Your support can make a big difference:
::$50...can get one person experiencing mental health issues in the water
::$500...can fund one person experiencing mental health issues to be part of the 12-week OneWave Surf Experience
::$5,000...can fund an entire 12-week OneWave Surf Experience for someone experiencing mental health issues
LETS GET CREATIVE WITH OUR FUNDRAISING
We would love you to host your own OneWave Start Some Good event to raise funds. Here are a few ideas:
Fluro Friday at your work or school
Free the fun surf comp
Free the funk yoga/meditation session
Host a food for your mood dinner
Surf film night
The possibilities are endless. Rally your family and friends to back you in your goal to get more people talking about mental health and share the message that onewave is all it takes. Be sure to let us know about your campaigns by using the #onewavestartsomegood.
Thank you so much for your amazing support!
Much Love - The OneWave Community.
