We are so proud to partner with i=Change to contribute a portion of every sale to community initiatives to support those in need. With every purchase, we can empower our customers to select from one of three organisations to direct the donation to. Our key charities work to support vulnerable women and children around the world, and raise awareness to these issues within our community.
The initiatives we support include:
Urgent Food Relief: Support flood-impacted communities
Foodbank is providing urgent food relief to communities impacted by the floods in NSW and Queensland.
Foodbank already provides food relief to over 1 million Australians per month, yet now over 2 million Australians are experiencing food insecurity. COVID-19 has created huge demand for food relief that is outstripping supply.
Foodbank is delivering what is needed to communities during these extraordinary times.
Each dollar provides 2 meals for those in need.
Protect a Woman: Provide shelter to a woman escaping domestic violence
In this current COVID-19 crisis, Women's Community Shelters is experiencing a 25% increase in inquiries for safe accommodation for women and children who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. Existing services were already at full capacity, with more than 50% of women seeking shelter turned away due to a lack of beds.
Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Now, there are many more. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Women’s Community Shelters is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
Every $50 provides someone in need with a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for one night.
Restore Dignity and Hope: Support flood-impacted communities
The floods that hit QLD and NSW have, for thousands of families, destroyed all they own. Over 50,000 people have been impacted.
Thread Together is a first responder to the relief effort and are already supporting those impacted, providing new essential clothing to women, men and children. Temporary clothing hubs are being set up, so people can choose clothing that is most appropriate to them.
Thread Together is working with the fashion industry and charity partners to ensure those affected are given new wardrobes - a first step in providing comfort and dignity during an immensely difficult time.
Every $5 donated provides someone in need with a new wardrobe.
