Mullets For Mental Health 2021

Good Times Are Coming Soon - I Promise

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/turning-my-mental-health-journey-strength-allan-james-waddell


NEWSFLASH: ALL TARGETS HIT! YEEEEWWW. Thank you to all who contributed. Drag Disco set for Saturday Sep 25 7-9pm. Check it out for fun music, and a laugh. 

Will play a non-drag set each Saturday until then. 7-9pm. Drop in and have a boogie. All happy fun vibes to get us through this Sydney lockdown. 




NEWSFLASH : (ACHIEVED) If I can hit the target of $5,000.00 I will not only get the mullet, I will also make it hot pink.

NEWSFLASH: (ACHIEVED) If we get to $10,000 I will play fun disco music for an hour, dressed in drag. (no one needs to see this)


As someone who lives with depression and anxiety, I've had my fair share of rocky moments. I feel lucky to have good friends and family around me and I'm thankful for their compassion and understanding. If it wasn't for groups like Black Dog, I wouldn't be comfortable talking about the journey. I hope in this effort we raise a little extra money to help them keep driving the conversation so others learn to care for their mental health, get the support they need, and feel comfortable reaching out for help when they really need it.

And for the record, I really really really don't want to cut my hair into a mullet. But given my experiences, I'm up for the challenge if it contributes even a little. 

For you who reads this silently suffering, if it's too hard to reach out for help right now. Just know that the good times are coming soon, even if you don't feel it today. I promise.

Love,

Al

Thanks for everyone's care and support! 
We together raised another 2k on Saturday night during the disco night. We have 140+ viewers and was far more successful than I'd imagined.
The Disco in Drag event will be on the 25th of September 7-9pm. Drop in for a laugh, some fun tunes, and some good times. 

Live disco tonight @7pm

Saturday 4th Sep
Team I’m going to live stream a fun (non drag) disco set tonight to see if we can raise a little more. You can watch through this site or on twitch. 
If you enjoy it please tip in what you can afford I know it’s tough times. Or just tune in and feel the good times!

You need to have balls and put in a very vulnerable position to do this. I am not sure if I want to watch the drag show but you got my respect.
