Charity Partner & Fundraising
The Urban MAX welcomes you to its 2017 official charity support page in partnership with R U OK?
R U OK? is a national suicide prevention charity whose vision is a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide. Their mission is to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life. Your support can help R U OK? start more life-changing conversations by:
- Creating new campaigns and free resources to inspire regular, meaningful conversations
- Expanding the campaign’s reach so they’re there to support more schools, workplaces and communities
- Conducting more rigorous research and evaluation to continually improve their work
By inspiring people to take the time to ask “Are you ok?” and listen, they can help people struggling with life feel connected long before they even think about suicide.
