Living with Laughter is Mark's Non For Profit Organisation

We aim to reduce societal stress, depression and suicides by linking the Comedy Industry to Mental Health and thus promote the health benefits of laughter.



Our mission is to SUPPORT THE SICK, SOOTHE THE STRESSED and
BOLSTER THE BLUE.

The 10th of September is World Suicide Prevention Day.  In 2012 Mark launched via ABC Radio Brisbane the  "Sharing Of Laughter Day" initiative. Since then we have hosted 2 Sharing of Laughter Day FREE EVENTS, thanks to The Sit Down Comedy Club in Brisbane, and some very willing comedians that donated their talents for a great cause.

In the process we have been able to raise much needed funds for both The Clown Doctors, who do great work in children’s hospitals, and, Soldier On, who help with the mental wellness of returned service men and women.

This year, 2016, we’ll be raising funds and promoting Lifelines’ Crisis Support Service.



 



Have a joke telling session at work. Attend a comedy show. Watch comedy movies. Instead of watching the news that night, replace it with an episode of your favorite sitcom. It doesn't matter how you do, as long as you do it... PLEASE SHARE THIS PEOPLE... Together we can make a difference.

Thank you , and once again, PLEASE SHARE THIS..
