R U OK? at Messina

If you're around any of our stores today, you may notice some yellow MESSINA X R U OK? Day envelopes in the local hood. If you find one, we encourage you to take a mate for a scoop, on us.

Why are you putting yellow envelopes on the streets we hear you say? Well, today is R U OK? Day (14 September) - a national day of action when we remind Australians that every day is the day to ask, ‘are you OK?’ and start a meaningful conversation whenever they spot the signs that someone they care about might be struggling with life. We wanted to encourage this conversation to happen, with the added sweeter of a scoop of gelato.

Find an envelope, and take a mate or someone you care about for a scoop on us. If you find an envelope, the voucher is valid for 1 week until 20 September 2023.

You can find more information and resources on R U OK? Day here.

If you find a voucher, it cannot be exchanged for cash. Only valid on 2 x 1 scoop serves. One voucher per customer.
