It’s a proven fact that GIVING is beneficial to your health and wellbeing, Supporting those that do so much for others is extremely gratifying and you will be abundant with warm and fuzzy feelings.
Win – win situation.
Joy and inspiration Program
Young children usually have no choice to become a Carer, where they have to provide support for a member of their family with a medical or mental health conditions, disability or other illness.
Therefore, they miss out on so much and deserve something special. You can make a young person’s dream come true with our ‘Joy and Inspiration Program’, to let them experience something they never thought they would have.
It may not even be much, like our young teen carer Daniel who was 15. He loved music and all wanted was to go to a live concert as he had never been to one, nor could afford it.
Not only did Daniel get to his concert, he met Ian Haug from Powderfinger and had an amazing one on one guitar lesson with him, plus a new guitar gifted to him.
Your organisation can be involved from the very beginning to help us organise these special surprise experiences that will be so meaningful and change their young lives forever.
Each experience is unique for that teen and makes them feel so inspired and valued. We guarantee that these experiences are contagious, and your team will become as passionate as we are for supporting these amazing young people.
Here is a video of Daniels experience and how these young people are affected by these special projects.
Carer Wellness Programs
We provide ONE and THREE-DAY wellness programs to unpaid carers to prevent health crisis breakdowns. These Carers can be as young as 12, and are usually not coping due to the extreme stress, anxiety and exhaustion.
You can sponsor a Wellness Program for these amazing people to allow them to heal and recharge, which is often lifesaving to them. Your team can be involved in the actual retreats, meet the participants, be involved in the activities or just fund the programs so Carers can attend.
You will receive feedback from the participants, and plenty of social media shout outs and coverage.
