What a truly challenging time we have experienced in Australia for the past couple of years. Most of the country has experienced being locked down again and again for different periods of time. Small business has been hit extremely hard.

The demand for our buddy service is growing all the time and our ability to get our training program out into business is even more important than ever.

We would really appreciate it if you could chip in to make sure we can continue to help people who are in need of our support during this pandemic and beyond. Our goal is to raise funds to continue our Let’s Chat Buddy program running and accessible to all, and with your help, I know we can do it. Every donation makes a  difference. So what do you say, can you make a one time, tax deductible donation to help The Male Hug thrive?

Where your donation goes

As a registered mental health not-for-profit, we are committed to providing our buddy program free to all who need it, while we also look to keep the training program cost at a minimum for Businesses who are providing this service to their staff.

The Male Hug has ongoing initiatives and fundraisers which include our Talk around the Block in August and of course Talktober, where we take over the month of October and get people to talk. We look forward to you being a part of these.

The Male Hug exists to ensure every man understands the benefits of talking, and connects with family, friends or our buddy program when they need to have a chat. We want to help all professionals and business owners burdened with anxiety and frontline workers and health professionals coping with the mental challenges of the last couple of years, to do the one thing that can help lift the burden and that’s talk.

But to keep providing our Let’s Chat Buddy Program, we need your help. So if you love the work The Male Hug is doing, could you consider making a tax-deductible donation right now so we can continue providing these essential mental health tools for all?

Thank you for your support.
