Jack Jensen from MSFT Productions on their #SparkThatChat mental health campaign

What a good sort this man is.

Jack Jensen from MSFT Productions joined George Breakfast in studio to have a yarn about their mental health campaign - #SparkThatChat - to help Kiwis who have been affected by suicide and mental health issues.

A great cause, which unfortunately was sparked when he lost one of his mates to the black dog last November - but Jensen and the MSFT team have been dedicated to spreading the froth and helping others to improve their mental health and to make the most of everyday.

A bit more background behind #SparkThatChat and MSFT Productions:

“On November 24th 2020, the MSFT crew lost one of our own - our boy Reido - to suicide. Like so many others who sadly can relate, this loss came as a shocking blow to so many who loved and knew him.

I reached out to the MSFT community for support during that impossibly hard time and was devastated to see and hear just how many of your lives have been affected by suicide and mental health issues, and we want to help.

MSFT Productions has always been a platform to promote ‘spreading the froth’, making the most of everyday, and doing everything that makes your soul shine, but we want to extend that work further and become a platform for all things mental health - the good and the bad - to offer fellow frothers the encouragement, support and information they may have been searching for.

We are so proud and stoked to launch our #sparkthatchat mental health campaign throughout the month of march to make some noise about mental health awareness, spark those hard conversations, and raise money to further support the amazing work of the Mental Health Foundation of NZ.

Keep your eyes on all our social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, TikTok & Youtube) for inspiring content; buy some of our rad new apparel to donate to the cause, and most importantly #sparkthatchat.”
