Today is the first day of Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) and Huffer has announced their support of MHAW by launching their 2020 People Presence campaign.
The People Presence 2020 campaign focuses on staying connected with eachother. This campaign encourages people to keep the wheel of connectivity rollin' as we sail through unchartered waters.
The initiative encourages us to be part of a healthy, connected community with tips to encourage connectivity:
"Huffer started by creating functional outerwear which was blended with a sense of expression that represented the sub-culture and community around the brand. We didn't know it at the time, but this also created a 'badge' as a sense of belonging and identity - our people were connected to our community. These tips help all communities thrive. Connectivity with strangers or your mates helps your mental wellness," said Steve Dunstan, Founder of Huffer.
Huffer aims to be an enabler by building a platform and ultising their channels to engaging a community that has been built through a commitment to putting people first.
The Peoples Presence message is amplified this year, as Huffer works with Teeks, Julian Savea, CHurch, Dan Ahwa and more. The campaign documents each individual and their honest emotion. Images accompanied by short stories of real-life experiences of each person to bring connections closer than ever.
"Through this process, we realise that everyone has an influence and a story to share."
Huffer will release these stories throughout MHAW digitally. During this time, Huffer's People Presence capsule collection will be available for purchase. $10 of each product sold will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation.
