A Conversation Could Change A Life!
Thursday 13th September, 2018 marked a significant day for us as we honoured R U OK Day across our 3 corporate sites.
R U OK day is a National day of action that raises awareness in suicide prevention and serves as a reminder that a simple conversation can save a life.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) confirmed that 3128 people took their own lives in Australia in 2017. As a nation, we are striving to lower this number each year by inspiring and empowering everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life.
Our esteemed Pastry team made 1000 mini cupcakes with RU OK logo decals on them which were used in the activation. Some of the cupcakes were donated for the Corporate bake stall which was run by our client, whilst the other cupcakes were offered to each patron along with their coffee purchase. Furthermore, all staff greeted customers with the words “R U OK?”
“Every now and then it HAS to be ok to let someone know you’re not doing ok. It has to be ok for you to let your guard down and admit that you need some help.” (Bianca Dye – Liptember Ambassador)
To our Stix friends and family, R U OK?
