As the light at the end of this long, 6 week tunnel begins to shine, we remain hopeful to welcoming you back into CreativeCubes.Co sooner rather than later.
Our team has kept connected and busy and we’re ready to wrap you in happiness so you can go forth and do your thing!
We’re almost there!
That’s a question we need to genuinely ask when we see the signs someone may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and circumstances have made it even more important for us all to stay connected. R U OK?Day is Thursday 10 September 2020. It’s the national day of action when we remind Australians that every day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?” if someone in your world is struggling with life’s ups and downs.
CreativeCubes.Co is all about creating connections and support through our community and we know that regular meaningful conversations can make a difference.
As part of our commitment to each other’s wellbeing, we’re virtually coming together as a team to join in on RU OK? Day. If you’d like to get involved, drop us a line at [email protected]
You can learn more about R U OK? at www.ruok.org.au
