The people on this wall are truly amazing. They have each contributed $20 or more to assist in us in achieving our mission to become a charity.
We cannot move forward with Kaged Lions to implement physical services and expand community engagement without becoming a registered charity for the simple fact that people and organisations prefer to donate to charity for tax purposes and don't trust for profit for cause organisations to do the right thing.
Kaged Lions is not profitable and has run at a significant loss in its near 3 year history, there simply isn't enough support for a mental health mission that isn't a charitable one. At present I am only 1 man, the Kaged Lions team consists of me alone and in 3 years I haven't paid myself a single cent for what i do. Why? because I'm am determined to stop mental ill-health going undiagnosed and put an end to suicide being a viable option for men in Australia after being there myself and knowing there is a road to recovery.
If Kaged Lions can get enough support to start a charity which comes with a price tag of approximately $9,000+ extras, the experienced board members that i have chosen to make up the Kaged Lions board and I will make it happen to play on the same pitch as our big brothers like Black Dog & Beyond Blue. If this doesn't get the support we hope it will, Kaged Lions in time will be unsustainable and eventually it will disappear.
I've put my heart and soul into making this work for the last 3 years and I hope that you will join these incredible people in making this happen for all the Kaged Lions in this great country of ours.
