Comfort for Change

As an Australian, family-owned and operated business, giving back to the community that has given so much to us is at the very core of what we do. We do what we do for the love of comfort, and it is our mission to make the lives of Australians in need that little bit more comfortable. This is why we’ve partnered with i=Change and donate $1 from every online sale to one of three Australian charities, and you get to choose where the donation goes!

This gives you powerful purpose to your purchase, that extends far beyond our product. The process is easy! Simply place your online order and select your chosen charity through the pop up that will appear after you’ve hit the ‘Place Order’ button in the checkout.

In 2020, thousands of Australians have found themselves in uncertain and unstable positions, both emotionally and financially. With the changing times, we are changing our gift to two new charities providing comfort to locals who are struggling in these uncertain times. These charities are:

 


Beyond Blue

(New!)

Around two million Australians live with anxiety and around one million live with depression.

Beyond Blue support is available for all Australians to speak to a trained counselor at any time. This service is experiencing increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people reach out due to the effects of social distancing, isolation and employment insecurity.

Trained mental health professionals listen, provide advice and counseling, and point people in the right direction to receive the support they need.

For every $48 we are able to donate, Beyond Blue can assist one person through a supportive phone conversation.

 


Foodbank

(New!)

Foodbank already provides food relief to 815,000 Australians a month, however COVID-19 has created demand for food relief that is outstripping supply.

Foodbank can turn every $1 we donate into 2 meals for an Australian in need, to ensure access to food relief for the entire community; for the elderly, for women escaping domestic violence to vulnerable children, asylum-seekers and remote indigenous communities.

Foodbank is delivering what is needed, efficiently and effectively, supporting communities across the country in these unprecedented times.

 


We also proudly continue to support

Women's Community Shelters

$26,631 donated (and counting!)

Existing services cannot meet the demand for emergency crisis accommodation for women who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. More than 50% of women seeking shelter are turned away every night. Across Australia, this equates to over 50,000 women nightly.

Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.

Women's Community Shelters are dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and for every $50 we are able to donate, they will be able to provide a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for one night.

 


We have previously been able to support the vital work of these incredible Australian charities and have donated over $36,000 collectively to their causes.



Australian Childhood Foundation

The Australian Childhood Foundation is a leading organisation, supporting children to recover from the trauma of abuse, neglect and family violence. The Foundation provides specialist support to help children heal and feel safe, while educating and empowering communities to safeguard children from abuse. Through our donations, 365 children were able to receive specialized, one-on-one therapeutic counselling sessions.

 


Starlight Foundation

Through games, movies, performances and more, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness for a while and get down to the serious business of having fun! Captain Starlight also brightens the otherwise clinical wards with daily ward rounds full of jokes, magic and laughter. There are over 160 Captain Starlights delivering joy around the country! We were able to provide 464 children with access to the Starlight Express Rooms in hospitals across the country for one year.

 




“At Pillow Talk, we believe every person deserves comfort. Comfort is what binds us together and makes us feel connected and safe. As a family-owned company, we fully stand behind the conscious comfort of truth, authenticity and compassion.
Through i=Change and our Pillow Talk community, we will rally together to support women and children in need of physical and emotional comfort as they face adversity."
