Please help me, help a mate: @themikeking

photoKia ora whanau, any chance you could help out my charitable trust by voting and sharing the link?

Key to Life was started by The Nutters Club to address the stigma around mental health and our appalling suicide statistics especially among our kids. Last week Jo and I spent 3 days in Kaitaia encouraging kids (1200+) help fight suicide by talking and supporting each other rather than taking their own lives. There have been over 30 suicides up their in the last year including the countries youngest a 10 year old boy.

We don’t get any funding, instead me and a very small team of dedicated mates run golf tournaments, sausage sizzles, comedy gigs to keep it all going. When thats not enough I sell shit I know longer need, 3 weeks ago I sold my old school Valiant and I’m about to sell my Harley so I can go on doing this work. Why? Because there are some seriously great kids out there, who through no fault of their own, have been beaten down by fucked up circumstances who need someone out there fighting for them.

I have had a blessed life my friends. I have spent nearly 20 years of my life telling people to get f&*ked for a living and it is time to give back! I am passionate about this work and even if we don’t win the car (for the next 3 years) I will continue to fight on. However, a vote for the KEY TO LIFE CHARITABLE TRUST will make that fight just a little bit easier.

If ya still here and still reading, bless you and love ya heaps :)

    Is there anything else a soul can do for Mike?

  • P1LL

    I was in a bank once and he was at the teller next to me , he was an obnoxious cunt to her. She was non Maori and trying her best to help him, the thing was he was not listening to her.
    I will vote but he is a racist asshole.

    • Have you considered that was some time ago, that he was a lot like me in battling his depression and a cunt to people…and that he has changed now.

      • P1LL

        Yes I guess it was around that time , but I have battled depression since 2000 and have never been a racist arrogant cunt to people who were trying to help me.
        I forgive him but I will never forget that day because I think his true colours came out.
