Social Responsibility - Because We Care
"To make giving back one of the most powerful commitments business can make - and to accelerate the impact of extraordinary development projects." - Jeremy Meltzer, Founder.
Mary Grace is a proud partner of i=Change; an organisation that connects brands with charities both nationally and worldwide. It's our small way of giving back to those in need.
It was hard to choose a charity to support, if we could, we'd support them all! The best part about i=change is that of their growing list of charities, we're able to support 3, not just one. The charities we chose to support are ones I feel personally connected to.
PROTECT A WOMAN
An organisation that provides shelter to women escaping domestic violence relationships.
For every $50, the organisation can provide a woman with shelter, food, accommodation and other necessary amenities for one night.
Unfortunately there are more women needing shelter than the current holding capacity.
This means more than 50% of women are turned away every night because they don’t have the money, space or capacity to take these women in.
Across Australia over 50,000 women including children are left homeless with nowhere to go. https://www.iequalchange.com/project/help-women-escape-domestic-violence/
SUPPORT A CHILD TO RECOVER
Every night in Australia 46,000 children can’t sleep in their own beds because they are at risk of being abused or neglected.
In one-on-one therapeutic counseling, children are supported to understand the abuse was not their fault and they are worthy of love. Holding children in strong relationships, they come to trust their connection with caring people as a source of nurturing and comfort, not hurt and betrayal.
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.
SUPPORT BUSHFIRE RECOVERY
Foodbank is playing a crucial role in the current unprecedented bushfire crisis which is devastating communities across the country.
As a trusted organization, forming part of the official emergency response, Foodbank is acting as a conduit for the generosity of the food and grocery sector, and the general public who are keen to assist with essential supplies.
Foodbank is delivering exactly what is needed, to efficiently and effectively support the relief efforts.
SUPPORT FEED AUSSIES IN CRISIS
An organisation helping to feed families and individuals through times of crisis or disaster.
Whether its natural disaster or extreme financial hardship at some point 4 million Australians deal with the reality of not knowing where their next meal is coming from.
i=Change partners with Foodbank Australia, the largest organisation equipped to help feed Australians however despite best efforts, the demands still outweigh the supply.
EMPOWER AT-RISK YOUNG MUMS
An organisation helping women between the ages of 13 to 23 that have found themselves pregnant but are unable to look after themselves and their child.
These young mums may be couch surfing, at risk of being thrown out of home or being asked to leave their family home due to their pregnancy. They haven’t developed their sense of self and are now facing the challenges of having to raise a baby.
Empower At-Risk Young Mums provides a 6 month program that enables young mums the tools they need to better themselves and the life of their child.
The Program gives around-the-clock support, parenting education and life skills training as well as mentoring to help them into the positive direction of a brighter future for themselves and their child.
