JUMP is very proud to announce their partnership with Mike King’s founded charity, I AM HOPE and the Gumboot Friday Appeal. JUMP has a new sock initiative for Gumboot Friday with all proceeds going towards counselling young people in need aged between 5-25 years old.
Having depression is like walking through mud every day and JUMP is encouraging everyone to wear a pair of gumboots or their new I AM HOPE Gumboot socks on Friday 3rd April 2020.
These Gumboot Socks will provide everyone the opportunity to support the cause by wearing the socks to work, school or in any situation where it is not possible to wear gumboots. The socks can be worn all year round knowing you have helped make a difference and start a conversation.
For a $5 donation you can get a FREE pair of these limited-edition Gumboot Socks to wear. All proceeds go towards providing free counselling sessions by registered mental health practitioners for our young community in need.
With the inception of this new sock initiative, JUMP hopes to raise $60,00 for the Gumboot Friday fund, which will provide 500 kids with valuable FREE counselling sessions, so they can get the help and support they need, when they need it most.
“Last year it was with great sadness that we lost one of our own team members when they took their own life. This was absolutely devastating for everyone and led us to understand how many of our young team members and young customers that we engage with daily are at risk, so we decided we needed to do something to help” says Sandra Mu, Founder and Managing Director of JUMP.
Your donation can be made on the JUMP website or at our local JUMP, at 6 Jomac Place, Avondale where you will collect your limited-edition socks in support. The socks will be available until they run out and although Gumboot Friday is held this year on the 3rd April 2020, feel free to donate your support all year round.
