WAIT, WHO IS POOKIE?
Pookie is the name of Tash's teddy bear plushie and also the name of the teddy bear keyboard kit that Tash and Calvin designed. This keyboard kit is currently open to pre-orders and proceeds from the sale of these keyboards will go towards this fundraiser as well.
More information about the Pookie65 keyboard can be found at https://havenstudio.square.site/introducing-pookie65-a-beary-good-keyboard
WHY DID WE CHOOSE TO FUNDRAISE FOR HEADSPACE?
Headspace holds a special place in Tash's heart. As a volunteer paralegal at a community legal centre, she saw firsthand the nature of family and criminal disputes - they were graphic and were negatively impacting her mental health. Mental health has always been important to Tash and so when offered the chance to send the proceeds of this sale to a good cause, she chose Headspace. Since announcing the project, we have also heard of many local community members having used Headspace, or volunteering or working at Headspace as well.
WHAT DOES HEADSPACE DO?
Each year, one in four young people experience a mental health issue, and 75 per cent of mental health disorders emerge before a person turns 25. Sadly, suicide is still the leading cause of death for young people in Australia.
Headspace provides mental health services to young people 12 to 25 online, by phone and through headspace centres in metro and regional areas across Australia,
