The All Right? campaign is teaming up with organisations across our region to deliver Outrageous Bursts of All Right to people in Canterbury.
Thanks to the generosity of Christchurch Limousines on 3 October the All Right? crew cruised the streets of Christchurch driving people wherever they wanted to go in style!
On 4 September All Right? teamed up with Moffats Flower Wholesalers and the BNZ to distribute more than 2,000 roses and hundreds of coffees to unsuspecting EQC call centre staff, Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) workers, shoppers at Eastgate Mall, teachers at Philipstown School, and parents of pupils at Lyttelton Main and Lyttelton West schools.
All Right? manager Sue Turner says whether it's a simple act of kindness or lending a helping hand, the little things we do can make a big difference to our wellbeing.
"We've all been through a lot in Canterbury over the last three years and there are lots of things about the recovery that cause frustration and stress. Outrageous Bursts of All Right are all about brightening people's day and spreading the joy of giving," Sue says. "We're busy planning more Outrageous Bursts of All Right which we'll be rolling out over the next months – we're looking forward to sharing the joy!"
All Right? are capturing people's reactions and sharing them on video for the rest of Canterbury to enjoy. Have a look for yourself at www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/christchurch-life/all-right/
All Right? is a Healthy Christchurch project led by the Mental Health Foundation and the Canterbury District Health Board. The campaign is designed to help Cantabrians think about our mental health and wellbeing and ways we can improve it.
