Can a cuppa tea save 160 lives?

Don Ritchie – Australian Local Hero 2011

Such an inspiring story that I had to do a page in my journal!

“Mr Ritchie, who lives opposite the infamous Sydney suicide spot The Gap, has talked more than 160 people out of taking their lives there.

His strategy: simply to offer a cup of tea and chat back at his place.

Mr Ritchie says it does not take much to make a difference for those in need and anyone can help.”

Of course it is not the cup of tea that it is important… it is a man (and his wife) who cares and in his own quiet way is making a difference!
