 Women's Community Shelter
Women’s Community Shelters

$223,357 donated 

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.

Our donations allowed for 4,467 nights of safe accommodation with a hot meal for women and children escaping domestic violence.

Food Bank

$146,873 donated.

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. The impact of the floods have exacerbated the need already created by COVID-19 which has left the demand for food relief outstripping supply. Foodbank is delivering what is needed to communities during these extraordinary times.

Our donations provided 293,746 meals to people who may have otherwise gone hungry.

$61,870 donated

In Australia today, three in five Australian students have experienced bullying, one in ten are disengaged from education and, tragically, suicide is their highest cause of death. Young adults often need someone to support them on their journey.

Raise trains, then matches mentors with teenagers who would benefit most from an independent, caring adult who is there to listen – and be there just for them, to help better navigate life’s challenges, believe in themselves and find a path towards a purposeful life.

For every $34 we donated, we were able to train a youth mentor – that’s 1,819 of them!
