Boosted Autosports have always loved what the guys at Cars for Hope have been doing. September 10 2019 is world suicide prevention day and in recognition of that we are proudly supporting their mission by donating $1 from every sale during September and October.
So what is the Cars for Hope #iamdriven mission?
In Australia there were 3,128 suicides in 2017. That’s 8 per day. 1 every 3 hours.
Cars for Hope created the #IAMDRIVEN campaign because these stats are unacceptable. Theye want to bring attention to the importance of suicide prevention and to challenge the stigma surrounding suicide.
The goal of their campaign is to educate people about suicide and what we can do to prevent it, to encourage conversations about mental health in your community that inspire honesty and openness, and to raise life-saving funds for treatment and recovery.
In honour of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) they want you to answer the question: What drives you?
They hope that by creating a collective voice and connecting the automotive community we will be able to help those who are vulnerable to suicide.
If you need help, we all would encourage that you ask for it.
You can blame your circumstances on fate or bad luck, or you can face it and tackle it head on. The rest of your life is being shaped right now. With the dreams you chase and the choices you make. The rest of your life is a long time. The rest of your life can change. But the rest of your life starts with your first step.
So tell us: What’s driving you to become the person you want to be? Email us or send us a DM or PM on Instagram or Facebook. We would love to hear from you!
