3. Share your story
If you’re comfortable to let people know why you’ve chosen to support beyondblue, include this in the ‘My Story’ section of your fundraising page. This gives a personal touch to your page and encourages people to support your event, even if they can’t attend.
If you have been motivated to support beyondblue due to another person’s experience of depression, anxiety or suicide and wish to share a story in which that person will be easily identifiable, you must seek permission from the individual or next of kin first. Some people may not want their experience made public. It is important to consider the impact and respect the wishes of others affected by the same story as you.
