JULY 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT
It has been a challenging start to 2020 to say the least and an incredibly eye opening time for many. In the face of adversity we have the choice to really see ourselves and others. It is natural to have survival mode kick in and it is always advised that you look after your self and your mental health first so you can truly show up for those you care about and those in need.
For a lot of us though, we do forget, despite our genuine difficulties, that our concerns are often those of privilege and a lot of our forgotten communities are in desperate need for basic support such as housing, employment and mental health. When we hear the headlines, we have the urge to do something, but as we get swept up in our days our goodwill is denied and often replaced with overwhelm and uncertainty of where to even begin.
This is why we have partnered with The Just be Nice project. JBN is an organisation of its own calibre when it comes to directing all funding and resources to managing your goodwill and ensuring it is used in the most impactful way to achieve the best possible outcomes for those in need.
This month gentSac have set an intentional goal of raising funds and awareness to support people in getting the help they need, for as long as they need it, regardless of how they have come to need it.
We also aspire to encourage each and every person in our community to remember all they have to be grateful for and lean into that energy during times of challenge. We can do better for one another and this is a great place to start.
Here’s how you can be a part of it:
