Huffer are continuing the conversation around mental health and suicide prevention after their partnership with the charity during New Zealand Fashion Week. It is in Huffer's core values to celebrate inclusiveness and to bring people together from all walks of life. Huffer identifies with the key objectives by Mental Health Foundation and to summarise them, the label came up with People Presence. People Presence projects the idea of being present to support one another, and ourselves, throughout life. It is a capsule collection in collaboration with the Mental Health Foundation and $10 of each product sold is donated to the charity.
"Together we hope our beanie and t-shirt will not only keep your head warm (and street game strong), but also keep your soul strong too," said Steve Dunstan, Huffer's founder. "We want to encourage people to talk about the stuff that’s tough, and wearing People Presence product is a statement of support, and starting point for conversation. By partnering with the Mental Health Foundation, we hope to help improve the well-being of the many who are suffering silently."
Mental Health Awareness Week starts on October 8th.
