Catching Waves of Wellness in the New Year
This month, for every Craftzero order placed, we’ll donate $1 to Waves of Wellness, an incredible initiative to help improve mental health in Australia through surf therapy.
That’s right -- every time you commit to your own wellness by choosing non-alcoholic beverages this summer, we’re giving back to improve the wellness of others. It’s a win-win all around.
Mental Health in Australia
Our mental health affects everything we do and it should be cared for just like we care for our physical health. According to Australia’s Department of Health, more than half of Australians aged 16 to 85 will experience mental illness at some point in their lives.
That’s 7.3 million people suffering with poor mental health.
While mental illness varies in terms of severity, it’s certainly not to be overlooked. Plus, with the global pandemic causing mental health to plummet for many Australians due to lockdowns and isolation, prioritising mental health has never been more important.
Surf Therapy for Stronger Minds
Waves of Wellness (WOW) is a non-profit organisation that brings surf therapy to Australians struggling with their mental health.
After all, strong mental health is about more than dealing with a crisis. At WOW, it’s believed that managing lifes everyday ups and downs also requires certain skills and tools to maintain a healthy mind.
WOW runs 88 surf therapy programs all across Australia, impacting the lives of thousands of people every year by promoting positive mental health. The organisation also has programs for corporate wellness and primary education in addition to their general surf therapy.
So, whether you’re struggling, recovering, or looking to prevent mental illness, WOW has a wave for you to catch.
Waves of Wellness + Craftzero
Here at Craftzero, our mission is to not only provide the best selection of non-alcoholic beverages to Australians, but also to encourage more people to drink better, healthier and smarter.
Wellness is a huge part of our purpose and helping our fellow Aussies find ways to cope with mental illness helps us on our journey to promoting a higher quality of life for everyone.
Especially after the year we’ve all had, consider buying for a cause and supporting WOW today. Whether your New Year’s Resolution is to drink less or to give more, do both by shopping on Craftzero.
Please check out foundationwow.org to learn more about Waves of Wellness and see how you can get involved. Consider making an individual donation or order a few bottles of alcohol-free wine to contribute.
Every little bit helps. Let’s help more Australians ride the waves of life with stronger mental health today!
