Website Update In Progress …

Hi All,

Just a quick message from your friendly neighbor-hood webmaster here.

I hope you like the new layout of the web-page. I’m currently in progress on revamping the website to make it prettier and more user friendly. Besides, the old layout was completely horrid and needed to be … polished more. I think this is suitably shiny for our current purposes.

So please bear with us while we do this, and please send any suggestions for improvement to: chrisbarrettfoundation@gmail.com

Awareness Day Results!

The income from the day has been calculated and this year we raised over $5,000 for the Awareness Day 2013. We can’t thank everyone enough for their generosity and following of our day. Together we can make a difference.
We still have all 4 colours of the awareness mask badges available and we intend to sell them through the website and looking at the possibility of selling them at other venues. If anyone has an office, school or workplace that might be interested in stocking them let us know at chrisbarrettfoundation@gmail.com

Awareness Day Update

We were lucky to have the weather on our side this year. A huge contrast to last year’s day when the skies opened up and made everyone who ventured out cold. Today we were blessed with sunshine and the turn out reflected this.

Although it is hard to keep a complete log of everyone who comes along we estimate around 300 people attended this year making it a busy day. Our volunteer facepainter was busy all day and did and amazing job ranging from lovely rainbow butterflies, to fluffy cats and even superheroes! It was great to see so many people participating and enjoying the lovely weather and grounds of Beauty Park.
A huge thank you has to go out to all the people who helped out on the day. We are so lucky to have so much support. The day would not be possible or successful without you.
Lots of people have commented that the inclusion of the suicide memorial service was a positive addition to the day so we will be looking at including that again next year.
We would love to improve upon these numbers and activities next year so feel free to contact us via email or our facebook page if you have any ideas or offers be it advertising, activities or items for prizes.
