Today we delivered 27 warm life saving sleeping bags to another charity that helps people sleeping rough. No one charity can do everything on its own. We do a lot and weโ€™re proud of our work but we canโ€™t meet all the needs of all the people all the time. This is why collaboration with other charities is important. A huge part of being your best as a charity is understanding not only what else needs to be done but also what else is currently being done, and working with those groups to ensure a better experience for those in […]

Thanks to your incredible generosity weโ€™re now providing formula, nappies, sanitary items and toiletries to single parents who are struggling with isolation. Today our awesome superstar Dayle called in to pick up tins of formula, nappies, underwear, sanitary items and toiletries for Mums in need of support. Lockdown works differently for everyone and not everyone has the support of family and friends to help get them through. There are many reasons people end up completely on their own. Domestic violence is often a contributing factor, as is arriving into the country as a refugee, or just not having any family […]

Can we give a huge round of applause for one of our incredible supporters, Nat Trajcevski. Nat nominated us for a $10,000 CommBank Staff Foundation Grant and we won! This money will be used to support even more people in need, especially those in hardship due to social isolation. Thank you so much Nat and thank you Commbank. We are so incredibly grateful for your support. Round of applause for Nat! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Thank you so much to every single person who helped us get these urgent supplies of nappies, formula and sanitary items to the residents of the Melbourne towers during their total lockdown. A huge thank you to John and Gabriel from Costco for their special care and attention in helping us get the sheer volume of products we needed. A big hug and thank you to every single person who helped make this happen. Every one of you who donated, commented, shared or sent your love and support, we are so incredibly grateful to have you on our side. Moving […]

Can we please give a standing ovation and round of applause to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) for their unconditional love and unwavering support for the residents locked down in the Melbourne towers. This incredible group of volunteers have cooked around 2000 meals for the residents. Not only that, they have taken the time to cook traditional flavoured meals inspired from the many countries of those who reside in the towers. It just doesnโ€™t get any more heartfelt and compassionate as this. I remember not long after I started this charity, it was only about 8 months when old […]

Today thanks to your generosity we took our second load of nappies, formula and sanitary items to the residents of the 3031-3051 towers and have another load ready to head out in the morning. Charities are considered an essential service so we will still be able to reach the residents of the towers even though the city has gone into lockdown again as of tomorrow. Unfortunately due to rules around contact points we cannot accept donations of products. We apologise for this however the more contact we have with people who are donating, the more chances we have of coming […]

As a charity today would have to be one of the hardest days we have ever witnessed. We loaded up the Outlander with nappies, formula, pads, tampons and other essentials and took them to the Melbourne towers for our first load to assist those in full lockdown. As we took the items in we saw many people in incredibly distressed states. One woman sat on the steps of her building crying hard and pleading to be let out. With tears running down her face she begged the 12 or so officers in front for her freedom. The police officers were […]

Thankfully most of the tower residents will be able to leave their homes as of July 10. As we move forward we will now be assisting single parent families who are unable to access sanitary items, formula and nappies during the six week stage 3 lockdown. We will be working with local community groups to drop these items directly to the families who are unable to safely access them themselves. Thank you so very much to everyone who has helped us achieve this incredible work. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ As many of you know there are over 3000 people locked in 9 towers […]

We need to talk. Something has been on my mind and I havenโ€™t said anything yet, but as the founder of this charity, itโ€™s time for me to speak. Whatโ€™s been on my mind is the โ€˜Black Lives Matterโ€™ movement, the protests and the anti protests. As an Aboriginal woman I have suffered discrimination and seen my Mother, family and loved ones be reduced and treated as nothing but lesser inferior humans, animals even, because of the colour of their skin. This has affected me my entire life in ways that would take me months to write and you weeks […]

(Mentions DV, mental health, trauma) I got a call from my Doctor today. It suprised me when I saw her number on my phone screen because I wasnโ€™t expecting it. My mind raced. Did I have test results coming back? Was I late for an appointment? Did I have antibiotics that needed changing? Everything ran through my mind in half a second and I came up blank. I had no idea why she was calling. It seemed like an eternity but it was only a second before I answered. โ€œIโ€™m so sorry,โ€ she said. โ€œI just didnโ€™t know who else […]

Once again what an incredible day! We donโ€™t have a final tally but we managed to gather four large boxes of items for the Yuendumu senior fellas health and hygiene programe and raised over $2000 to purchase more of what they need. These items will be shipped up to the Northern Territory by our good friends at StarTrack. A huge thank you to our volunteers MelAnnetteSineaidJoCaitlinPierretteAngelaNevenaKylie FarrugiaBonitaKaiMimma For helping out today and making it such an incredible success. We canโ€™t do this without your support ๐Ÿ™
