too many, too soon project
Put your face behind Kids Helpline and help save our youth.  This project is to raise awareness on Youth Suicide – they are not asking for money, just your face as support.

A Message from Kids Helpline – Upload your photo to the link below and show your support for Kids Helpline and help create a TV commercial that will raise awareness of youth suicide in Australia.
Every 90 seconds Kids Helpline is in contact with a young person, many times a night that call is in relation to suicide. Too many too soon has been created to raise awareness to all children and young people so they know that Kids Helpline is there for them.

The web site has been created for everyone, young and old you don’t have to have been personally affected by suicide and by uploading your photo you will be showing your support and you will become part of a national awareness campaign that could change the course of a young persons life. You will have made a difference. We want more young people to reach out for help, so please help us get the message out there.

Some background to the project.
David Field and Mic Gruchy have been working together in film for over 20 years. Nearly two years ago they were both affected by the tragedy of youth suicide when one of their best friend’s daughters committed suicide… her name was Tahlia, and she was only nineteen.
Out of the greatest love and respect to Tahlia’s family David and Mic want to make something beautiful come from this tragedy, in the form of a commercial to raise awareness of youth suicide.
