What we're doing
Join us for an auction this Friday, 3rd September 2021, at 8pm. Help us raise $100k in time for the Father’s Day weekend. Funds raised will go towards Lifeline and the help they extend to our fellow Aussies in need.
Rami Ykmour, the co-founder of RASHAYS restaurant chain, is hoping to raise some much needed funds for the Lifeline foundation this week by auctioning off sports memorabilia.
As Father’s Day looms, raising awareness for men’s mental health is at the forefront of his effort.
Men’s mental health issues are often stigmatised and are silent killers. During the pandemic, increasing uncertainty and unemployment has meant many Australians suffer from mental health issues. This means many more men are suffering in silent as they face their mental health issues alone, and tragically, suicide rates are also on the rise.
Every day, on average, 8 Australians take their own lives, 6 of which are men. Worldwide, men are three times more likely to die of suicide than women. Since the pandemic, support foundations such as Lifeline receive an increasing number of calls — averaging over three thousand calls a day in recent times for Lifeline alone — from Aussies seeking help, many of whom are men.
Aussie fathers, brothers, cousins, sons, friends — they need our help. A lot of these men are dreading one of the biggest days of the year that’s coming, Father’s Day, this Sunday, 5th September.
Help RASHAYS and Rami raise the funds to help Lifeline continue to do the fantastic job they do, of lending support to Aussies in their darkest hour and times of need.
It’s time for us to come together and put a smile on some fathers’ faces.
