🙋🏼♀️Today I’ll be joining the amazing @redfrogsau team at the Coburg Wellness Market. 🤗
I’ll be sharing my story on my mental health challenges on the main stage at 12.40pm.
The event is at 14-18 Gaffney St Coburg from 10 - 3.
I had the privilege of joining the Red Frogs in Lorne this week to watch them in action.
For those who don’t know, this incredible team of young adults volunteer their time to hit the streets while schoolies events are on. Their sole purpose is to serve and protect our young ones who may be out drinking for the first time in their lives. The work they do is remarkable... even lifesaving.
I joined their call centre where they get requests for transport, pancake cook ups, frogs, even for company. However there are many serious calls relating to drugs and alcohol as well as abuse, violence even suicidal thoughts.
They really are angels and should be supported however we can. 😇 🐸
Come down for a few Red Frogs today and immerse yourself in wellness 🌱
📺 As seen on today’s show ‘Contemplation Candles’. 🔥 Put your feet up, light the candle, read the quote, contemplate the meaning and relax. 😴
I LOVE quotes and wanted to find a way to look at them every day without having them plastered on my walls. Candles seemed like the perfect solution! 🌟 My candle themes are: Belief, Optimism, Comfort, inspiration, Me Time and Happiness. $35 each through my website link in bio. 🙋🏼♀️
