Proudly Supporting Lifeline Australia
Lifeline Australia is a mental health charity providing 24/7 crisis support and suicide prevention services across Australia.
We donate $1 to Lifeline Australia for every Lulibell Studio print purchased, and $0.50 for every greetings card. So for every purchase you make, you are helping Lifeline Australia to answer the call of someone who's mental health is in crisis. Thank you.

Lifeline Australia in Numbers
For over 50 years, Lifeline Australia has offered confidential crisis support. They offer support via phone (24/7), text or online chat, among other services.
Every day, more than 3,000 people reach out to Lifeline Australia for support. The reasons they call range from isolation, anxiety, and stress to relationship breakdowns, grief, and crisis.
More than 8 Australians take their own lives each day. And for every life lost too soon, many parents, children, siblings, friends and colleagues are left devastated.
Suicide is the leading cause of death in Australia between the ages of 15 and 44.
3,500 highly-trained Crisis Supporters are available to help anyone, any time.
In 2019, Lifeline Australia received over 1 million calls to their Crisis Line. That's an average of one call every 30 seconds. Call volumes have increased by 25% since COVID-19 restrictions began.
1 in 5 calls went unanswered.
Lifeline Australia believe that that losing lives to suicide can be prevented, and that a life without suicide in Australia is possible. They urgently need donations to ensure that they have the right resources to respond to every single person in need.
What does Lifeline Australia do with my donation?
Your donations help Lifeline Australia work towards a world where no call for help goes unanswered.
Your donation could be used to help recruit, train and support more Crisis Supporters, or develop new technologies and services that help them respond to more people, faster.
To give you a rough idea of what it takes to run Lifeline Australia's essential service, $300 a year helps Lifeline Australia to provide help to 12 people in crisis through Lifeline Text over a year.
We’re starting with a fundraising target of $1,000. That would ensure that approximately 40 people get the support that they need.
At the close of 2020, we have raised $370 so far. Every donation made as a result of every Lulibell Studio print or card purchased goes straight to Lifeline Australia. Thank you for your support.

The Lifeline Australia Crisis Line is available 24/7 and can be reached on 13 11 14.
The service offers confidential one-to-one support with a trained telephone crisis supporter.
This is short term support for anyone feeling overwhelmed or having difficulty coping or staying safe.
During the call, the supporter will listen without judgement, provide a safe space to discuss your needs, worries or concerns, and work with you to explore options for additional support.
