Optimates in a Wear Purple challenge to raise awareness
Date:8:30am to 3:00pm on 12 October 18
This Friday's #MHAWNZ theme is Give/ Tukua! Our team of Optimates are having a 'Wear Purple' themed dress day. All our offices in Wellington (NZ), Auckland (NZ), Sydney (AUS) and Canberra (AUS) are taking part in this challenge.
Optimation Group will make a donation to the Mental Health Foundation on behalf of every staff member wearing purple. A special donation will also be made on behalf of the staff member elected with the best purple costume!
It's our hope that together we can help to raise funds to promote the awareness of mental health within the workplace.
This will be a good day to rekindle your connections with nature, re-tell stories with whānau and give back.
Nature provides for us – it gives us everything we need to not only survive but thrive. We, in turn, have a kaitiaki/guardianship role to give back to nature for future generations.
Some 'Give' ideas, include:
• Gift your harvest
• Give your time, your words, your presence to others
• Prepare and share food together
• Volunteer for any charity close to your heart
• Challenge yourself to produce less waste. Reduce, reuse and recycle.
