George Breakfast's 28 Hour Give Back 2 Back

George FM Breakfast

In 2021/2022, Rhythm & Vines had to cancel due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which meant the normal funds they would raise for Lifeline from ticket sales were unable to be raised and donated.

This equated to a loss of around $30,000, an amount that is normally a huge help to the services Lifeline provides Kiwis every day. Lifeline unfortunately isn't government-funded.

Here at George FM, we're big on mental health and wanted to do our bit to help out, so George Breakfast is going to embark on another 28-hour marathon DJ set, all in the name of raising much-needed funds for Lifeline Aotearoa.

It’s called, George Breakfast’s 28 Hour Give Back 2 Back. From 6am June 30th, General Lee will DJing until 10am July 1st. He'll be going back to back with a huge selection of DJ’s and together, they'll do their bit for Lifeline Aotearoa.

We’ll need your help along the way - if you can, help stop suicide and provide counseling support by donating an amount of your choice to the Give Back 2 Back givealittle page.

Lifeline’s mission is to save lives and reduce distress.

Every day, hundreds of Kiwis are supported by Lifeline’s caring, specially trained counsellors via phone call or text. This includes an average of 15 to 20 people at high risk of suicide.

We've also got items available for Auction on Trademe, with all proceeds going to Lifeline, you can find these HERE (Trademe link)

Tune in to George Breakfast's Give Back 2 Back, 6am Thursday 30th June 2022 - 10am Friday 1st July 2022.

Every one of these calls and texts are funded by donations – Lifeline’s free, 24/7, confidential service isn’t government funded.

Other reasons people commonly speak with a Lifeline counsellor are loneliness and isolation, relationship challenges, anxiety and depression.
