Charity of the Month Campaign 2020
In 2020, our world was thrown a curve ball that forced us to live differently and put extra pressure on the physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing of many. We felt helpless, but as time went on many of us also learnt to be grateful. As an organisation, we were grateful to be able to continue to operate and open our doors in support of our community.
While grateful, we also felt a sense of obligation to support those that were suffering, so we put our heads together and announced the launch of our ‘Charity of the Month’ campaign. In April 2020, we pledged that for 6 months, we would donate $1 from every purchase to a ‘Charity of the Month’ nominated by our team. With so many thoughtful, considered, and worthy nominations, we found that we couldn’t limit the campaign to just 6 months. So we decided to extend the campaign an additional month, and share the extra donations across two local charities that were close to our hearts.
We are so pleased to have been able to support organisations that supported so many through difficult times, and are proud to announce that a total of $5,359.00 has been donated across the following outstanding charities:
- CQ Rescue
- Mackay Women’s Services
- Orange Sky
- Broken Ballerina Foundation
- Rotary Club North Mackay & Variety Bash (The Bushrangers)
- Iona West Men’s Shed
After receiving so many grateful responses from our donations, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that support these organisations by giving of their time and/or money in order to help those in need.
We look forward to continuing to support you and our community throughout 2021!!! 👏💪🎉
