$500 Surpassed!!

7 March 2020

Wow, 3 days in and we've already made it past $500!!

Thank you everyone for your support thus far. I'm so appreciative of all the generous donations and offers of support and amazing words.

Pieta are aiming to have 250,000 walkers this year so tell all your family and friends!!



It's important to set a target early on as it provides a guiding light towards what you want to achieve.

Here's some quick stats:

- 200,000 people all over the world took park in Darkness Into Light 2019.

- If each walker raised $1,000, that would be equate to $200,000,000 in 2020.

- $200,000,000 equates to 1.27 million calls in to a helpline for people in need.

- If everyone encouraged at least one more person to walk with them and to set the same target, this numbers doubles. $400,000,000. Let that sink in.

Let's do this.


Support The Support

In 2020, Darkness Into Light will be supported by Sirens of Silence in Western Australia, a charity built by paramedics with the aim of providing support for all frontline responders in Australia and those that suffer from PTSD and the fight against suicide and self-harm. 

June and I will be doing the walk on the 9th of May to help spread awareness surrounding suicide and self-harm as no one out there should feel that this is their only option.

Be kind, be supportive, be open and ask each other if you are ok.


Join me for Darkness Into Light

In light of the recent events and the global Covid-19 outbreak, our Darkness Into Light walk which was scheduled for May 9th has been postponed until the autumn. However, the services that Pieta provides to people in suicidal distress cannot be postponed.

You can help keep these services available to those who need them most, especially during these uncertain times, by donating to this page by clicking the ‘Donate’ button. The funds you donate today could mean that one more call can be answered to someone in suicidal distress, one more person can get the help they need, when they need it, and one more family can be spared from the devastating heartbreak of suicide.
