Hi there,

My name is Joshua Taylor, and I'm planning, organizing, and (with your help) completing the Brisbane-Sydney-Canberra-Melbourne (BSCM) Ride 4 Change in support of charities focused on Men's Mental Health Struggles and Suicide Prevention.

With your help, I'm aiming to raise $17,500.00 for Men's Mental Health and Suicide Prevention charities in Australia and Canada. As a part of this campaign, to raise awareness and to spur donations, I have planned a 2,020km bicycle tour from Brisbane to Melbourne via Sydney and Canberra to be completed in November, 2017. The GoFundMe's goal is set at $27,500.00 as that is the absolute total needed to cover the $17,500 for charity, the costs of completing the tour itself (including airfare, support vehicle fuel, food, the bike, camping fees, etc) and then accounting for the fees charged by GoFundMe, but the goals on this page will be measured relative to the $17,500 charity goal.

The thing is, I'm just one Canadian, and although many of the unbelievable legends about Canadians are true, we still need help from time-to-time, and help is exactly what I'm asking of you.

I was inspired by another Canadian, Joe Roberts, to get off my butt (though I'll be sitting on a bike for 2,020km) and do something about something that was important to me, and as someone who struggles with Bipolar Disorder, and narrowly survived two suicide attempts in the past, addressing the oft-ignored and even ridiculed issues faced by men struggling with mental health conditions is DEFINITELY something that I'm passionate about.

So, if you'd like to support my campaign, you can make ongoing, monthly donations here, or make a one-time donation via the BSCM Ride 4 Change GoFundMe page at www.gofundme.com/BSCMRidge4Change

Thank you,

Joshua Taylor

Thank you SO much for your donation, it's important for you to know that EVERY donation is appreciated. 

I totally understand that what $1 is to some may be $100 or $1,000 or even $10,000 to someone else, so thank you :)

As a token of thanks, you will get access to YouTube videos published by the BSCM Ride 4 Change 1 day early!

Thank you!

First-and-foremost, you're AWESOME... Just thought you ought to know.

Also, your $5 donation will get you exclusive access to some BSCM Ride 4 Change videos discussing topics like the planning of the tour and videos recorded on my training rides come spring of 2017.

You will also get access to standard BSCM Ride 4 Change YouTube videos 2 days before anyone else! (except for any urgent updates that need to be posted ASAP).

Thank you!!!

Ten bucks!? That's AMAZING!!!

Seriously, thank you... Thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you! It's hard to do physical rewards when it comes to this kind of project, but if you would like one, I will send you a numbered Thank-You poster via email, signed by myself and personalized with your name. You will also receive 2-day-early access to BSCM videos.

From the bottom of my heart, thank-you again.

Goals
$0 of $400 per month
At $400.00, we'll be one-quarter of the way to the average monthly fundraising goal of $1,600 needed to collect $17,500.00 by the end of October 2017, before the Ride 4 Change gets started in mid-November.

It all starts with a single donation, folks, so let's break the ice and push forward!
