Mullets for Mental Health

Create Your Own

Blonde Mullet?!?! - 24/07/2020

And just like that the mullet is blonde!

While the mullet is being shaved off in 3 weeks time, who said we can’t have some fun before then to raise some more money! Isolation can be a very testing time so it’s important to do things that keep you busy and make you laugh! These activities could include going for a walk/run, giving painting a go or even colouring your hair! If these activities don’t excite you, reach out to friends and family and create a Zoom call to share a laugh and touch base! This weekend, for example, some friends and I have scheduled a Splendour in the Grass themed Zoom because we obviously can’t be there! Anything to bring back some kind of normality and to put a smile on our face will do!

Keep going with the donations everyone, we are doing a fantastic job raising over $2300 in one week! As always any donation is appreciated and remember, there’s still plenty of time to join in and cut that mullet!

First Update! - 21/07/2020

Hey everyone!

This is the first update since the fundraising began and boy do I have some good news! Our initial goal of $1500 has been met within the first 3 days of the campaign which has been a super effort by everyone that got behind and donated! We aren't stopping there though with over 3 weeks left before the shave, so we will be increasing our next goal to $3000 which would be huge if we could achieve this!

Whilst the past weekend was very tough for so many us, the Bloods community once again rallied together to support one another. Everyone has handled themselves so well over the last year, to say that I'm proud is an understatement. Let's continue to push through ISO and make an effort to keep in contact with our mates.

Big things are planned for the mullet in the next couple of days and there's still plenty of time left to donate! All proceeds are going to the Black Dog Institute so that they can continue to do their work in the community at a time when it is so crucial! Every single donation helps!

Got some exciting things on the way!

Cutting a mullet to fight against mental illness

Hey everyone! 


In the next 4 weeks I will be shaving my head (and mullet) to raise money for the Black Dog Institute to help support the fight against mental illness! 


With the current pandemic and restrictions tightening once more, the next few months will prove tough for all and it’s organisations like The Black Dog Institute that can offer much needed support to help us all push through this together. 


The last year has been very difficult for so many of us, losing our close friend Tyson “Noisy” Noyes. For those that never had the pleasure of meeting him, Tys was the kindest soul. He was the first by your side when you were feeling down, and had an infectious smile that bought so much joy to everybody he met. The loss of Noisy is a stark reminder that mental illness does not discriminate, and it shows us that it is important to not only check up on our mates regularly, but to check-in and recognise your own thoughts and emotions too. 


Raising awareness is key in the fight against mental illness, providing useful tools to help us manage our own mental wellbeing. Organisations such as the Black Dog Institute and Beyond Blue play a huge part in this, and so it is essential that we support these groups so that we can have the resources available to help ourselves. 


For those that didn’t know, since July last year, I have been growing a mullet that I know Tys would have loved (sporting a cheeky haircut himself!) to try and lift the club spirit and keep a smile on everyone’s face around the footy club. 


While it’s become a part of me, the time has finally come to shave it all off in order to help raise money for the Black Dog Institute during a time when the battle against mental illness is becoming increasingly difficult. Over the next month I’ll be encouraging you all to donate, or even join the cause and consider cutting your own hair into a mullet (or any other crazy hairstyle!). I will also make an effort to offer useful tips, so that together we can tackle the stigmas surrounding mental health. 


Thank you in advance for all your support and remember to check up on your mates. We are stronger as one.  


This one’s for you Noisy

Happy birthday mate ❤️🖤💚

Very proud of you Michael. Here’s a little something to get you across the line to well over $5k which I’m sure will go a long way to helping to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding this horrible illness. You’re a good man Mick xoxo
