Dare Iced Coffee partners with R U OK?
Dare Iced Coffee has announced a three-year partnership with Australian suicide prevention charity R U OK? to encourage Dare drinkers to provide support to any of their mates or loved ones who might be doing it tough.
“R U OK? aims to start life-changing conversations and create a more connected world,” says Kathy Karabatsas, Lion Dairy & Drinks Managing Director. “Dare has always been known for saying a ‘Dare fix’ll fix it’, but the truth is, a Dare fix can’t fix many of life’s challenges. Thankfully, a conversation could.”
In a brand first, this month 5,275,000 Dare 500ml core packs will carry the R U OK? message on the label leading up to R U OK? Day on September 10, reminding people to ask their mates and family members: “are you OK?”
R U OK? Dare bottles will be available in all supermarket and convenience outlets in all states where Dare 500ml is sold. For more information on R U OK? head to ruok.org.au
