Tuesday, September 10th 2024 is World Suicide Prevention Day, a day which focuses our attention on the issue of suicide and reducing stigma. It is a time when we can spread a message of hope to others, being aware that others might be experiencing suicidal thoughts and provide direction to Pieta’s free lifesaving support services. This helps to create a more caring society where those who may need help feel comfortable in seeking it out from Pieta.
We are asking as many volunteers as possible to be a ray of hope for your community and participate in our Flag Day in as many locations as possible around the country, to promote suicide prevention, positive mental health, well-being, and Pieta’s free services for your community, and shake a bucket to help fund them.
Our main Flag Day will be Friday 13th of September.
Volunteers will work in groups of a min of two people, and we will provide you with the following:
A Pieta T-shirt
1 x Bucket
Volunteer badge for you to wear
Stickers to hand out to donors
Business cards with Pieta’s helpline to hand out to donors
Information on Pieta on our services to brief each volunteer
Insurance indemnity for the area of the bucket collection
When: Friday 13th September 2024
Where can I participate: Across Ireland in various locations
Note: This is an in-person event
