Mental Health, suicide & depression in the bush
Are you bogged mate? is all about helping country blokes talk about mental health and suicide while spreading awareness about depression in the bush.
Depression in the bush is a lot like getting bogged in the mud. It might have been just a sticky patch of the road or paddock where the vehicle stopped moving, maybe you needed low range or to winch yourself out. But what happens when you get properly bogged? When it's down to the running boards, sitting on the chassis, you are not getting out of this one easily  -  that's the kind of bogged we mean.
Proceeds from this raffle will be fund the 'Are You Bogged Mate?' program working to bridge that gap and breakdown the stigma associated with seeking help while linking them to the services available.
Tickets are priced at $5 each, 3 tickets for $15, 5 tickets for $25, 10 tickets for $45, 20 tickets for $90

The Rotary Foundation’s first annual $2 million Programs of Scale grant supports a Rotarian-led effort to dramatically reduce malaria in Zambia. The Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia program will add thousands of community health workers to the country’s health system to test for, diagnose, and treat malaria in more communities. Read about how members formed a successful partnership to increase their impact.
Rotary members around the world are doing more good than ever before, and we’re proud of their work. If everyone comes together and contributes to our Foundation’s Annual Fund-SHARE, we can meet the demand for grants.

When Rotary members give to Annual Fund-SHARE, their donations truly do help people. Did you know that a portion of each Annual Fund-SHARE contribution goes to our World Fund, which significantly supports global grants? With help from our donors, last year the Foundation awarded 1,359 global grants to Rotarians who are taking action to solve complex problems where our help is needed the most. In total, we’ve funded more than 10,000 global grants since 2013. Annual Fund-SHARE contributions also generate District Designated Funds, which local Rotary leaders can allocate to Foundation projects that address needs right in the community.

Your support of our Foundation’s Annual Fund makes Doing Good in the World possible.
  • Changes to The Rotary Foundation funding model
  • Rotary involvement in COVID-19 vaccinations
  • Rotaract involvement in grants
  • Policy updates for returning funds to the Foundation and canceled grants
