For many of us, the Festive Season is a time of joy to be spent with family and friends. Yet, for some it is a time of loneliness, isolation and family or financial pressures – tragically, the busiest day of the year for Lifeline’s 13 11 14 crisis support line is Christmas Day. Assist Lifeline WA in supporting people in need by bidding on a selection of unique experiences for you, your family, friends or workplace.

All proceeds of our auction flow directly to Lifeline WA, and we aim to raise $25,000 to raise community awareness in how to recognise the signs that someone is in emotional crisis or thinking of suicide, as well as educate more voluntary Telephone Crisis Supporters to take calls over the particularly busy Christmas and New Year period. Lifeline WA’s commitment to the Western Australian community is that it will make every dollar you invest in Lifeline WA count towards helping people at risk.

It costs us an estimated $40 to answer each call to our 13 11 14 crisis support line, to which Western Australians will place around 55,000 calls this year. If you’d prefer to make a donation in lieu of gift-giving this year, you can do so here.
