Think Education and mental health organisation Headspace Woolloongabba, recently collaborated to raise awareness and funds for mental illness in Australia.
The event ‘A Beautiful Mind’ involved Think Education students who designed t-shirts, that were later modelled at a fashion show at Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall last Friday afternoon. The impressive designs clearly demonstrated the rich talent of Think Education students as well as their eagerness to help raise money and awareness for mental health.
The t-shirts were then auctioned off at Think Open Day on Saturday 23 August, at our new Brisbane campus in Fortitude Valley. Over $1000 was raised from the auction and donated to Headspace Woolloongabba.
Congratulations to Billy Blue College of Design student Lucia Hiscock for coming up with the ‘A Beautiful Mind’ initiative and bringing it to life. A big thank you also goes to everyone who participated in the event and auction, making it such an outstanding success.
