BARC (Bali Dog Adoption Rehabilitation Centre)
#2 of 656 Charities with 1,817 votes
BARC is a no-kill facility that aims to relieve the suffering, starvation and abuse of Bali animals through rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing. We take in the worst of the worst – and see it almost daily! No words can describe the level of suffering experienced by some of these abandoned animals – bald from mange, emaciated, open fly infested wounds, broken limbs – they cringe at the site of humans, scavenge for food scraps, sleep on the streets and as a result, live in constant fear.

We provide all rescued animals with the necessary veterinary care (including vaccination and sterilization). While their bodies mend we do what we can to rebuild their trust in humanity offering love and affection. When ready they are placed in fur-ever homes through our adoption program. The most traumatized cases may live out their lives in our animal sanctuary called ‘Warriors Legacy – BARC Sanctuary’.

Warriors Legacy is the first ever rescued animal sanctuary in Bali. This project is home to over 60 adult dogs, 2 rescue horses, 3 rescued pigs and many monkeys. We have just completed construction of a state of the art, all natural, open-air jungle enclosure for our rescued monkeys.

We operate a street program to help many mistreated animals, support locals with free veterinary care and regular street vaccination/sterilization programs. Additionally we conduct education programs in the Balinese community.

Founded in 2006 (registered charity in both Australia and Indonesia), we have expanded rapidly, to date helping over 20,000 animals. There are presently 350+ animals in our care. With no government funding, we rely on donations from the global community.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of our donors! Please know that 100% of all donations go towards improving the lives of Bali Animals.

You can find out more about BARC through our website or facebook page:

DANII Foundation
#15 of 656 Charities with 444 votes
DANII was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was only FIVE years old.

Despite having to prick her finger several times a day, to take her blood glucose (sugar) levels, and have several daily injections of insulin (and later manage her insulin pump), this talented young lady led a full, action packed life. She was extremely popular and excelled in many things.

A very talented singer – she was a leader of the Australian Girls Choir and had aspirations to make singing & song writing a career.

A LIFE CUT SHORT – Sadly all her dreams were shattered on November 8th 2011 when DANII lost her life as a consequence of Diabetes Mellitus. She went to bed a happy, beautiful teenager and never woke up.

She was just SEVENTEEN and had everything to live for. Her family will never, ever be the same.

Her brothers have lost a wonderful, vibrant sister and friend, her parents have lost their beloved and only daughter. People who knew her, knew they lost a best friend too.

This trauma CAN BE AVOIDED and the DANII Meads Barlow Foundation is determined to help stop another tragedy like DANII’s ever happening again in Australia.

As a legacy to DANII, the DANII Meads Barlow Foundation was created to help make a difference.

A Brave Life
#21 of 656 Charities with 338 votes
A Brave Life is a registered Not-for-Profit organisation that helps to alleviate the risks of ongoing poverty, misfortune and helplessness experienced by many young and teenage mothers by assisting them to complete their education, pursue their dreams and to be positive role models.
We provide practical necessitates (such as nappies, baby wipes, feeding equipment and baby clothes) to young and teenage mothers through our baby bundle program as we know the financial difficulties young and teenage mothers face whilst trying to complete high and purchase essential baby items.
We believe that education is an important responsibility for a teen mother. Finishing high school and pursuing further education and employment will allow her to be able to financially support her child and become more independent. One way that we help support teen mothers to complete their education is through peer and mentoring support, to help navigate the challenges of being a teenage parent and completing their high school education.
At A Brave Life we walk alongside teenage mothers, encouraging them to finish their education, pursue their dreams and to be a positive role model for their child and we would love your support to be able to continue to do this.
checkyourtackle
#22 of 656 Charities with 301 votes
Hi,
checkyourtackle is a newly formed not for profit charity raising education, support and awareness on rare male cancers including penile, testicular and anal.

With 1 in 2 Australian men being diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, it was noticed by our founders that most men’s cancers go undiagnosed, treated or discussed due to stigma surrounding men’s illness.

With an estimated 72,048 cases of cancer in males in 2016, resulting in 26,566 deaths, breaking the stigma is imperative in survival. “Cancer of Unknown Primary” or CUP is the term used to describe a metastatic cancer with an unknown starting point so the fight against cancer must goes on

There is no one I know who can say they DO NOT have a friend or relative that has battled this terrible disease.

Sydney Pig Save
#27 of 656 Charities with 225 votes
Sydney Pig Save raises awareness and advocate for change to stop the mistreatment of pigs raised for food. Sydney Pig Save is part of the global Save Movement, founded on Gandhi’s principles of kindness, compassion and non-harm for all beings. There are around 2 million pigs in Australia. Approximately 95% of them are born and raised in factory farms, which are inhumane and cruel, depriving these intelligent animals of their natural behaviours. The remaining 5% live on 'free range' farms, which in some instances, aren't much better than factory farms. Eventually, they all face the same fate to be killed for our food; some endure carbon dioxide gas chambers for up to 2 mins before falling unconscious...then their throats are cut.

We stand and bear witness to the lives of pigs who suffer and die for our food.

Donations help fund our campaigns to educate the public about pigs in food production. We also use donations to support help animal sanctuaries that rescue pigs and other precious farm animals.

Big Group Hug Ltd
#30 of 656 Charities with 203 votes
Big Group Hug is a solely volunteer run organisation that was founded in 2014 to support families experiencing hardship in the community by providing donated goods to help them care for their young children, aged newborn to five years old.
Requests for specific items are made through case workers, maternal and child health nurses or other professionals in the community. We aim to help anyone who is struggling to provide the basic necessities for their children, for example: nappies, clothes, nursery furniture, prams, car seats. We pride ourselves on our responsive nature, ensuring that we do everything we can to meet the needs of vulnerable families.
We are able to offer this support because we have a truly caring community of supporters who donate their pre-loved goods or new items. We are amazed by the community response to our call outs for donations and see our role as mobilising the community to meet the needs of families just like them who need a helping hand.
Our warehouse in Melbourne’s north, staffed by volunteers, serves as our main drop-off point for people donating goods and we have 7 drop-off points in the community due to a number of committed volunteers offering their homes or businesses as a convenient drop-off point for donors in their immediate area.
The unifying motivation for everyone involved is to relieve some of the pressure for families who desperately want to provide the best they can for their children but due to varying circumstances (such as low income, unemployment, disability, high-needs children) are unable to meet these needs. We can all imagine what that must feel like as a parent, a neighbour, a carer and so we come together to offer a Big Group Hug and support families in their times of need.

We believe education is vital to empower the Balinese people to improve the lives of animals into the future.We are committed to supporting efficient, grass roots organisations run by respected local people to help their communities.
We strive to ensure that any group we support shares our goal to operate at the highest standard to achieve the best outcome.

Animal Aid Abroad provides much needed food, medical supplies and treatment for injured, abused and overworked animals in developing countries.

Funds collected are specifically used to:

Providing free veterinary clinics and owner education to reduce the daily suffering of these animals;

Empower and educate animal owners to improve the lives of their animals and consequently their own well-being and livelihoods. This is to be achieved by supporting local partner organisations in developing countries to run outreach clinics, mobile units, community educational programs and other innovative projects if and when they arise;

Manage and maintain current sponsorship programs for partner organisations to help with the care and rehabilitation of abused, sick and abandoned working animals;

Inform and raise public awareness about the plight of working animals in developing communities and advocate change.

A staggering number of households in developing countries depend on working animals for their livelihood. The condition in which these animals work is extremely pitiful. They are forced to carry unimaginable loads, are beaten and underfed.

Exploitation of these voiceless creatures always goes unheard. These animals are loaded with excessive weight, are made to work for long hours - sometimes without food and water. If this was not enough, they are even forced to work when they are sick or injured. Their cruel owners deliberately cause injury to the animals and prod sticks into their injuries, twist their tails as they believe this makes it easier for them to control their animals while carrying their excessive loads.

Furthermore, ropes and harnesses used cause cuts and abrasions on their bodies. Weak laws and a complete lack of sensitivity among people encourages such fearless cruelty.

A Perfect Foundation
#50 of 656 Charities with 132 votes
The Mentawai Education and Conservation Centre provides English education and environmental programmes to make a sustainable difference in one of the poorest and most disadvantaged areas in Indonesia.

Remote Islands in Indonesia such as the Mentawais are recognized internationally as one of the few remaining places on the planet as having unique cultural and ecological assets. These need to be preserved, not exploited and destroyed. In the last few decades, vast tracts of Amazonian and Indonesian rainforest have disappeared and then lost forever. We’ve seen marine environments spoiled as plastics and pollutants have poisoned once pristine waterways as no or little education has been provided on waste management or recycling options.

A Perfect Foundation realizes that the time is NOW! We need to collectively take proactive action to protect this unique marine and forested environment. By doing so, we can ensure future generations inherit at least some of the lush beauty that once was more than the rarity it’s become today!

Operation PTSD Support Inc
#55 of 656 Charities with 117 votes
Operation PTSD Support assists the families of military and first responders. Specifically the families of those that have developed mental illness because of their service.
It is so hard to send your loved one off to work ( to war or to the streets ) and have them come home a different person because of what they had to do or what they saw.
Living with someone with mental illness ( PTSD, anxiety, depression, alcoholism) is difficult and impacts on the whole family. Often partners have to give up work to become a carer, and they become isolated, social excluded and often themselves end up suffering with depression. Operation PTSD Support provides regular respite getaways, and local catch ups all so these partner carers can get to know others in similar situations and build a good support network. We are national and also provide an online forum that is very supportive and informative. Regular Mental Health First Aid Courses are provided in locations around Australia at no charge to these partners to assist them to understand Mental Illness and give them strategies to deal with it within their families.
These are the people that are standing behind those that protect our country, our streets and our homes. There is very little ( in many places no) support services for them. We believe by supporting these partners we are enabling them to better support our veterans and first responders. As with many organisations we are just a small group of passionate partners making a difference in the lives of so many other military and first responder families.

We hold regular adoption days in Brisbane to re home all of our animals in care in Queensland. In New South Wales we have a large group of volunteers that walk our dogs that are in private boarding kennels.

Another part of our rescue focuses on human education. We like to teach people the importance of desexing animals, training their dogs, nutrition, the importance of vaccinations, worming and regular vet check ups

Australia for Dolphins Limited
#58 of 656 Charities with 108 votes
At AFD we’re working to bring an end to dolphin cruelty in its two main forms: the commercially-driven practice of dolphin hunting and the cruelty-ridden practice of keeping cetaceans in captivity for entertainment. In addition to the moral bankruptcy of stealing animals from their homes, a large body of scientific evidence suggests that dolphins suffer immense physical and psychological stress in captive environments, so we’re working hard to change the tide on the acceptability of this profit-driven industry. Using a combination of strategic litigation and political activism, we work to bring about meaningful legislative and political changes.

Our ground-breaking legal action has already stopped 62 aquariums purchasing dolphins from these gruesome hunts - cutting out up to 50% of demand for the dolphins. Please help AFD raise urgently needed funds to shut them down completely, and save thousands of innocent dolphins from torture. A global law firm has prepared a detailed legal argument, and a fearless Japanese firm with a track record of winning lawsuits against the government has also joined the fight. We are desperate to launch this legal action before the next slaughter season starts in September. But the truth is, we simply don't have the money. Your generosity could help make this life-saving legal action possible.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia)
#60 of 656 Charities with 105 votes
"My dream is to eradicate obstetric fistula from Ethiopia. I won't achieve this in my lifetime, but you can in yours" Dr Catherine Hamlin AC - Co-founder, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia

We believe in a world where all women are able to deliver their babies safely and where childbirth injuries are a thing of the past. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia has a very clear goal: we’re working to eradicate the most horrific childbirth injury, obstetric fistula – and we won’t stop until this is done.

In rural Ethiopia, where women have little or no access to maternal healthcare, they will be in agonising labour for days if their birth is obstructed. If she survives, she will almost always lose her baby and suffer debilitating injuries that leave her incontinent, isolated and ashamed.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is dedicated to restoring the health and dignity of these women who have survived horrendous – and preventable – childbirth injuries.

Founded over 50 years ago by doctors Catherine and Reg Hamlin, these two surgical pioneers remained in Ethiopia following their initial three-year posting to continue treating these marginalised women. Today, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is a healthcare network of over 550 Ethiopian staff servicing six hospitals, a rehabilitation centre, and the Hamlin College of Midwives – working to prevent the injury in the first place.

To date, over 50,000 women have had their health and dignity restored. Because of generous donors around the world, this life changing treatment is provided free of charge to the patients.

But there is still much more to be done.
Children's Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc
#60 of 656 Charities with 105 votes
For over thirty years the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) has been raising funds for research into childhood cancers.

Australia has one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer worldwide. One in 500 Australian children will develop a cancer before 15 years of age – that’s 600 Australian children diagnosed every year. Childhood cancer is the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children, with three children losing their lives to cancer every week. In Australia, childhood cancer is second only to breast cancer in terms of the number of years of life lost by the disease.
The quest to find cures for childhood cancer is one of medicine’s greatest success stories. Fifty years ago only two percent of children with cancer survived. Medical research alone has improved overall survival rates to 80 percent. With childhood cancer still the leading cause of death from disease in Australian children, there is more work to be done. There are still particular childhood cancers – such as brain tumours and neuroblastoma – with survival rates as low as 50 percent.

CLCRF has a commitment to ensure this ground-breaking research continues so that the future generations will be the ones to live cancer free. The Foundation relies on the generous support of the community to continue its vital research, as we do not receive State or Federal funding.

Kitten Kapers Rescue Inc
#63 of 656 Charities with 94 votes
Kitten Kapers Rescue Seniors Program matches senior cats who have found themselves homeless to senior people who cannot afford the ongoing costs of owning a pet. Kitten Kapers pays for the ongoing medical costs associated with cat ownership and care for the cat if the senior person has to go to hospital. Companionship of an animal has been shown to help older people with loneliness and depression and also gives a home to an older cat who would otherwise not be adopted. If the senior person is no longer able to care tor the cat or passes away they know that their companion will be cared for.This money would assist us with the ongoing vet bills and enable us to extend the program to more people and cats.
Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue Inc
#64 of 656 Charities with 93 votes
Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue is a small charity providing a number of very important community based programs. These include Seniors for Seniors where cats are matched with older Australians who want the companionship of a pet, but feel they cannot commit to the long term care a pet would entail. These cats remain in the name of the charity and we continue to provide health care where applicable, and the owner just supplies the daily needs of the cat eg food and litter. We also provide Crisis Care while owners are hospitalised or experiencing an unexpected family emergency.

With the ageing population many people are forced into parting with their much loved companion when they have to go into nursing homes. This can be extremely traumatic not only for the cat but the owner as well. We have known of some people who have refused to go into nursing homes because they were concerned that their pet of many years would be put to sleep if they weren't there to care for them. With this sort of situation happening more regularly, the charity desperately needs your help to continue it's work providing care and security to these mostly older companion cats and peace of mind for their owners.
Liver Kids Australia Incorporated

• Providing funds for necessary, but sometimes costly, appliances and supplements.
• Contributing to research into the causes of childhood liver diseases.

Assistance Dogs Australia Limited
#69 of 656 Charities with 86 votes
Founded in 1996, Assistance Dogs Australia is the only national charity in Australia to provide internationally accredited assistance dogs across a diverse range of disability needs. To date we have placed more than 200 Assistance Dogs, free of charge, across Australia.
1 in 5 Australians have a disability (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2009) with social care needs far outweighing available resource. Through our work, we see first-hand the dramatic difference an assistance dog bring to their new owners, boosting long term quality of life, improving mental health and increasing mobility, freedom and independence. Assistance Dogs reduce reliance on human caregivers and act as a social ice-breaker to help relieve social isolation, anxieties and loneliness and promote greater social inclusion in their community.
Eligible clients include people with congenital or acquired physical disability who require a wheelchair for mobility, children with autism and our ex-servicemen and women and first responders living with post-traumatic stress disorder. We currently have 169 people on our waiting list for an Assistance Dog.
We receive no government funding, relying on the generosity of supporters to fund our work. The dedicated contribution of over 300 community volunteers provides a huge boost to the work of our 36 employees and national work program each year.
Orange Sky Australia
#72 of 656 Charities with 82 votes
Orange Sky Australia is a world first started by two 20 year-olds. These boys put two washing machines and two dryers in an old van so they could wash and dry clothes for their new homeless mates. Starting in the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has now grown to over 12 mobile laundry vans servicing more than 76 locations with over 600 volunteers. Despite OSL’s rather early stage and the challenges facing the homeless we have expended every effort into further restoring the respect of homeless with a new branch of Orange Sky with mobile showers. Everyone has their own tears, marks, colours, imperfections but each deserves to be handled with the same respect as we place on the garments we put in our washing machines. As our younger volunteers found out, washing takes time. It’s this time we use to foster truely positive conversations. It costs us $6 for to clean a cycle of clothes and only $3 per shower. Help us by voting, volunteering or donating today.

Empowering children with the gift of a cape - for courage - for love & support - for whatever, whenever, however they need during illness -
Capes 4 Kids Australia are designed to help children feel as safe, secure, and brave as possible while undergoing challenging, often “scary” situations and treatments.
We realize the benefit of helping children understand the necessity of listening and following instructions during each of their treatments. Capes 4 Kids strive to be great role models by being strong, understanding and supportive in all their messages. They want each patient to succeed as much as their families and caregivers do. Capes 4 Kids help to communicate to patients in a different language that their feelings are important and that staying positive and strong helps to positively impact on their treatment and recovery.
Kids cannot get enough of super heroes, those “caped crusaders” who make the world a safer place. Our little crusaders facing hospitalisation, medical procedures, and treatments need all the help they can get to be brave, manage their fears, listen carefully and co-operate with instructions, to “get through” whatever must be endured. Play is essential for happiness and successful coping and Capes 4 Kids can magically turn a child into a superhero and we all know how powerful and brave they are.

Perth Homeless Support Group Inc
#80 of 656 Charities with 72 votes
We have seen too many people needing help in our beautiful city and feel that this group can make a difference. This group was started by Ron Reid and came into fruition in Jan 20th 2014 during the summer heatwave. There are places the homeless can access water in Perth, but it comes out warm. ProAqua has installed cold water fountains but there is a small fee to be able to access them with a recyclable bottle. So Ron came up with the idea of giving the homeless access to this luxury by gifting them with a reusable bottle and a water card that they can return and have it topped up. He then started the Facebook group, to share his idea and see if there were others who would like to do the same.
There many organisations in Perth doing the best they can with limited resources to cloth, feed and support the homeless. Everyone can make a difference to a person’s day by buying them a meal or giving food and water vouchers to those on our streets. We are a group of people that believe and encourage every single individual to make a difference in any way you can.
SEE THE NEED AND ACT IN A WAY THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
This group is also open to donations, non-perishable food items, food vouchers, sealed water bottles and water vouchers and refillable bottles for the Pro Aqua water fountains in the city. Packs made up of toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, women's personal hygiene products and anything you would think was a normal part of life would be gratefully received. The homeless don't always have access to these kinds of things, so anything is going to be very helpful.
We take a hands-on approach to pursuing social justice in the community by responding to needs in practical ways and Referrals to other organizations that deal with homelessness.
We believe in the pursuit of honesty, ethical practice, trustworthiness, and accountability in all interactions, and maintain an openness to innovative ideas and possibilities.
Sydney Fox Rescue
#81 of 656 Charities with 70 votes
Sydney Fox Rescue (SFR) is a registered Australian charity and animal advocacy organisation. Since 2012 we have worked tirelessly to rescue, care for, desex and rehome a variety of introduced and native species with a particular focus on foxes and dingoes (through our program Sydney Dingo Rescue). Unfortunately, as an introduced species in Australia, the welfare of foxes often falls through the cracks.

Australia as a nation, consistently fails to stand up and take responsibility for animals we brought to this country. Foxes were brought to Australia, through no desire of their own, to be hunted and slaughtered. It’s time we move past this archaic attitude and look towards more compassionate conservation methods. A share in this funding would help cover the cost of much needed expansions of our outdoor enclosures to accommodate more rescue animals in need and assist those creatures all to often forgotten.

Please note: none of our foxes or dingoes are ever released. Foxes are kept under permits in accordance with relevant government regulations.

Soldier On is a national not-for-profit focused on helping veterans and their families build successful futures. Our mission is to achieve the best reintegrated generation of serving and ex-serving defence personnel in Australia’s history.

We offer evidence-based psychological treatment to address a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma and stress related issues and pain and injury adjustment concerns. As well as individual counselling for adults and adolescents, we also offer relationship and family counselling.
Social Connectedness—We offer a range of wellbeing activities and programs to help veterans reconnect with themselves, their loved ones and the wider community. Some of social inclusion activities and programs we run, include regular coffee catch ups, yoga and art classes, Surf Therapy program, golf days, sailing days and more!
Employment and Education Support—Soldier On has partnered with a number of organisations to offer veterans employment, training and education opportunities. In addition to this, Soldier On also offers a range of employment and career services and resources, including career guidance and pathways, transition support and help with preparing your CV or for job interviews.

Soldier On believes the best way to support veterans and their families is by providing the right services, support, resources and opportunities to help them overcome any impacts from their service and build successful futures.
To reach more veterans in more areas across Australia we need to raise more awareness and support from our community.

SIDS and Kids South Australia
#84 of 656 Charities with 69 votes
There are few people in life untouched by the death of a child - be it miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS or accidental death. The grief that follows the loss of a child is unimaginable and unique.

SIDS and Kids SA is the only organisation in South Australia that provides free ongoing counselling to South Australians affected by the death of a child. This service is life saving. Highly qualified specialist counsellors help bereaved parents to live with and beyond the pain of their loss.

Last year we received double the number of referrals on the year before - 94 in 2016 vs 48 in 2015. That's double the Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles and friends receiving support, and guidance on how to support each other. We receive no ongoing Government funding and rely on the South Australian community to help us fund this program.

Please take the time to vote for SIDS and Kids SA in My Giving Circle. It's your opportunity to provide some support back to us.
A BETTER LIFE FOR FOSTER KIDS INC
#86 of 656 Charities with 68 votes
Our project will offer to Foster Children the basic needs such as clothing, shoes, personal hygiene products, 85% of children removed from home come with nothing except what they have on.
Also it will enable these children access to sporting facilities, dancing, music lessons which in turn will help these children form friendships outside their normal circle thus showing them that child abuse and neglect is not the norm they think it is because that is all they have seen.Tutoring for the children to help them catch up to their class level thus lowering the stigma these children face from their peers.
If we are ever going to break this cycle of abuse and neglect from one generation to the next we need to provide these children with the parental skills they never learnt from their parents, through treating them the way children should be that is nurtured and loved and provided for and showing them they are worthy, so as when they have children they will have the ability to rasie them in a loving caring home. We can do this by education and building a strong base for them.
It takes a whole community to save these children.

During these animal contact sessions, we will tell visitors what the animals endured before they were rescued, and what life is really like for the millions of others on factory farms that we cannot save.

Changing Perspectives Changing Lives

Big Brothers Big Sisters helps young people who face serious adversity – those who have little opportunity to develop positive and supportive relationships with adults. Many who are hungry for friendship, guidance and acceptance.

By positively changing the course of a young person's life, Big Brothers Big Sisters know we can build resilience and a sense of self-worth that helps them to stay at school, improve their relationships with families and their community which in turn can lead to long-term community benefits like an increase in school retention; school and community safety; and greater employment opportunities.

By connecting a disadvantaged child to a positive role model we can break the cycle of disadvantage.
Advanced Breast Cancer Group Limited
#94 of 656 Charities with 59 votes
The Advanced Breast Cancer Group is a unique community based service that has been supporting women diagnosed with secondary breast cancer and their partners, families and carers throughout Queensland since 1999.

We offer a professionally led group delivered on a weekly basis, both face to face and by telephone, from our Brisbane office. This enables local and rural women throughout Queensland to access psychosocial support, to share their experience and overcome the isolation they feel. Every year, we deliver two workshops in Brisbane that bring together women involved in the weekly group, their partners and family. We invite guest speakers presenting on cancer-related topics as well as facilitators leading creative expression activities.

Women with advanced breast cancer are the forgotten face of breast cancer. They are not ‘survivors’ who can put their cancer behind them and get on with their lives. These are the women who have to live with the knowledge that sooner or later they will die of their disease. These women fall between the gaps, and the Advanced Breast Cancer Group has developed an efficient and effective means of bridging this gap by offering psychosocial support to find ways to live meaningful lives in the face of this frightening illness.

Your support will help us continue this important work.
Knitting for Brisbanes Needy
#95 of 656 Charities with 57 votes
Knitting for Brisbanes Needy (K4BN) was created almost 11years ago to knit/crochet warm items for the homeless in Queensland, as although we are the sunshine state, after talking to a couple of homeless they mentioned how cold it gets, even of a summer night, when living under bridges, in bushes, in doorways etc.
We started off with 3 members, and now all those years later, we have in excess of 400 volunteers who knit/crochet/loom and sew all sorts of items to distribute all over Queensland. In the 11 years we have donated over 340,000 items to homeless, less fortunate, Domestic Violence victims, hospitals; cancer patients, those suffering mental illnesses etc; aged care homes even wildlife carers and animal shelters; victims of natural disasters throughout Australia and also our Defence Forces serving overseas.
We also buy, beg for toiletries which we put into hand sewn toiletry bags which are distributed to those in need .
All these donations are delivered straight to those who need them or organisations who help them FREE OF CHARGE.
OUr founders drive all over Queensland, including out to Roma, Dalby, Bundaberg, Maryborough to name but a few places in their own vehicle at their own expense,

We receive no funding whatsoever. A majority of our volunteers are pensioners buy their own wool etc, or wool which is sometimes donated.

If we were to be fortunate to win any of this generous money it would be used to buy wool, toiletries and fuel, all to assist our donations getting to those who genuinely need them.
Thank you.

New homes will be found for them when they are fit, healthy and ready.
Share the Dignity Ltd
#98 of 656 Charities with 56 votes
Early in 2015, an article by Mia Freedman published on Mamamia caught our attention. We were shocked to learn that in Australia many homeless women and women in domestic violence shelters had to face unthinkable indignities during their monthly period. For these vulnerable and at risk women, each month brought a shameful and traumatic experience, suffering indignities such as having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels or newspaper to create makeshift sanitary pads. Reading it from the comfort of our homes, with the knowledge that many Australian women couldn’t take hygiene for granted during menstruation, we knew we couldn’t allow it to continue.

We believe that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege.

In April and August we hold our collections for sanitary items,
Collection points around Australia help us in our mission to ensure every woman has dignity when dealing with her monthly period.

We pride ourselves on being a no kill shelter and a sanctuary for those rabbits that come into our care with such horrible histories.

Telethon Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre
#105 of 656 Charities with 52 votes
The Family Centre was established in response to the mounting need for better psychosocial support for Western Australian families with children with type 1 diabetes. Our vision is for a supported, connected and informed community of Western Australian families with children with type 1 diabetes who are positive, motivated, and thriving.
The Family Centre works alongside the specialist Diabetes Team at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH). The PMH team advises families on the medical management of type 1, while the Family Centre offers community and group education, and a dynamic peer and psychosocial support service. We equip families with the knowledge they need to take on the challenges that life with type 1 may present - including travel, camps, exams, sports, and the emotional impact of living with a chronic disease.
We also work to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes in the general community and promote action on issues that affect families affected by type 1.
The Family Centre is a not-for-profit and we rely on community support to fund our work. When you support us, you make a big impact on the lives of kids and families affected by type 1.
Edmund Rice Camps WA
#107 of 656 Charities with 51 votes
Edmund Rice Camps for Kids WA Inc. (ERCWA) is a non-profit, community-based charity organisation that provides recreational and developmental programs and holiday camps for young children aged 7–16 and their families - families who would not otherwise have such opportunities.
Children who are disadvantaged or ‘at risk’ due to financial, cultural, social, behavioural, physical or emotional circumstances are referred to ERCWA by a variety of third party agencies that work with ERCWA to provide these children and their families with some respite.

Given the nature of the service we provide, the children who attend the programs come from all areas of Perth and a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. For those who cannot make it to a Perth-based camp, our Eddie on the Road program delivers our services to regional, rural and remote areas across Western Australia.

ERCWA also promotes and empowers young volunteer leaders with formation and personal growth opportunities. A typical camp program has 25 kids living, working and playing along side 25 volunteer leaders. The role of a leader on these camps is more than purely recreation; leaders need to serve as a friend and mentor. These programs offer the young adult volunteers the experience of serving more vulnerable members of the community, develop confidence and the opportunity to develop leadership skills while encouraging a growth in empathy with a broader social understanding and awareness.

We rely on funds raised solely through one-off grants, sponsorship, donations and fundraising in order to run the not-for-profit camps and programs.

Help us make a difference to the lives of WA disadvantaged children and their families.

Express wildlife rescue and rehab
#109 of 656 Charities with 50 votes
Hello & welcome to Express Wildlife Rescue. My name is Andrea, and along with the help of my volunteers I run a not-for-profit wildlife organization based in Perth, Western Australia.

We rescue & rehabilitate injured and sick wildlife, releasing the animals back into the wild when we can. Sometimes they are just too sick, and they have to be re homed with long-term loving foster carers who continue to look after them.

Many of our animals come to us in a poor condition. Often malnourished, sick or injured, we provide them with veterinary care and 24 hour love needed to return them to good health.

We specialize in looking after orphaned kangaroos & possums, wild birds and reptiles and we can attend a number of call outs everyday to sick or injured animals. Above is a picture of one of our rescued roos, Monopoly. His mother was shot and he was poisoned when he was just a baby. Express Wildlife rescued and cared for him for as they do so many other orphans.

My team and I are very passionate about our native Australian Wildlife, and our aim is to make sure it is still here in generations to come for our children, grandchildren & great grandchildren to enjoy. To continue our valuable work we rely on our volunteers and supporters, who help us by giving up their time to help in our animal care center, help with fundraising events or kindly provide donations of food, bedding or financial support.
In addition, I am a licenced snake catcher charging a nominal fee to remove and relocate unwanted visitors. Please visit our 'Snake Removal' page for more information on the types of snakes we have caught & for advice on snake bites.

Life of Pikelet
#110 of 656 Charities with 50 votes
If Life of Pikelet manages to win or place in this giveaway we're going to hand over ALL the prize to a very special rescue charity - "Paws for Thought" Rescue.

This tiny little Sydney rescue made up of only a wife & husband team and a paw full of dedicated volunteers does some pretty incredible rescue work. This little rescue charity is the first port of call when it comes to some of the most neglected, oldest, broken and ill rescue cases Australia has ever seen. They take the dogs that no one wants. The pups that are dumped because they are "too old". And they take on these little dogs knowing full well that many of them are not too far off from crossing rainbow bridge. The incredible work that "Paws for Thought" Rescue do is flat out inspiring. But the work is tough. It's heartbreaking and it's never ending. Their vet bills?... Well let's just say vet bills are phenomenally large. These little dogs often need all the same medical treatments that us young healthy rescue pups need and then some. And then some more and then add more on top of that. Operations, dental, treatments, medicines, the list goes on. It's not cheap. It's not even manageable without donations just like this one I hope we can help with.

We receive no government funding or grants from the RSPCA. We make alot of our money from our dedicated volunteers sitting on street stalls. Please help us to help more animals get safely into their new life long homes.
The Wayside Chapel
#121 of 656 Charities with 42 votes
At The Wayside Chapel we’re not interested in fixing people; we’re interested in being there when people need us.

Those we help are often at their lowest point, with a perception that they are all alone in the world. They may be people who have burned all their bridges – who have no contact with former friends or extended family.

The people who turn up at the Wayside are not always easy people. Some have had such appalling experiences that their opinion of their fellow humans is at an all-time low. Many live on the streets or in circumstances that are far from safe. Some have mental illness, addictions, or vices they have become dependent on. Others are ready to turn their lives around and all it takes is a kind word and a sympathetic ear for them to ask, ‘Where do I start?’

The Wayside Chapel values every one of these people, and judges no one.

Everyone is worth our time. Each person deserves to be loved.

Wayside is a place where people who feel they have nothing left to live for can find a community. And when they are ready to move forward, someone who cares to walk alongside them.

Wayside is swamped with people who have exhausted all their options and literally have nowhere to go and no one to turn to. We need your help to keep our doors and our hearts open to the most vulnerable people in our community.

Diabetes Australia is the national body for all people affected by all types of diabetes, and those at risk of type 2 diabetes. 1.2 million Australians have been diagnosed with diabetes and a further 280 Australians develop diabetes every day – that’s 1 every 5 minutes…

We develop and promote type 2 diabetes prevention and early detection strategies, and work to create healthy communities, workplaces and environments. We work to strengthen care and management for all people with diabetes, developing self-care education and support, and strengthen programs to prevent the complications of diabetes.

A donation to Diabetes Australia is a donation towards:

• the search for a cure for diabetes,
• greater support for families and children living with diabetes, and;
• national awareness campaigns to reduce the number of Australians developing type 2 diabetes and diabetes-related complications.

Essentials for Women of Perth
#124 of 656 Charities with 40 votes
Essentials for Women was ‘accidently’ founded in October 2014 by Lenny Jacoby, following a conversation with a friend around the need for sanitary items and basic toiletries for homeless women in Perth. Lenny set up a Facebook event to invite 60 of her friends to donate women’s underwear and sanitary products. Within 48 hours, the event had gone viral and had been sent out to over 67,000 people. To date, Essentials for Women has provided over 102,000 items to women in need in Perth and regional WA.
In Perth there are 9592 homeless people every night. Forty-four percent of these people are women who are in need of this support. All items collected by Essentials for Women are distributed directly to women in need at events for homeless and through other not-for-profit organisations in Perth.
At Essentials for Women, we believe that: Every woman has the right to access sanitary product; Essential toiletry items are exactly that, essential, not a luxury; By making essential items accessible to women in need, their dignity as a woman is protected.

Ovarian Cancer Australia supports those affected by ovarian cancer, gives them a voice, facilitates research, and raises awareness on a national scale. We deliver best practice, accessible support informed by consumers.

Without government funding, we rely solely on the generosity of individuals and corporate Australia to continue our vital work.

Starting Over Dog Rescue Ltd
#143 of 656 Charities with 30 votes
We are a not for profit registered charity. All donations made to us are tax deductible. We save dogs from metropolitan and rural pounds that are in danger of being killed. These dogs are either surrendered by their owners, for any number of reasons, or have been lost and not claimed by a specific date. Once this date has been passed, they are at risk of death due solely to the lack of space in the pounds. We have volunteers who assess the dog's temperament. Because we are a community based foster care network, i.e. the dogs are fostered in volunteers homes, we make sure that all dogs are human and dog friendly, in accordance with the DPI regulations. After the dog has been in our care for approx 2 weeks, sometimes more, once the carer deems it to be socially acceptable, it is listed on the Petrescue website. We carefully vet the applicants for the dogs, as we don't want them to end up in the same situation again. Every dog is vaccinated, microchipped and desexed before being rehomed. Of course, they are vet checked as well. Some dogs are simple, others, can be very expensive, as they may be carrying injuries from previous abuse, or may have cancer or allergies that need to be treated. No dog is euthanised due to lack of funds, only terminal illness.

They will only know love & kindness and will receive all vet work needed to make them as comfortable as possible.

All meals are home cooked, fresh on the night and we try to provide options to suit all diets.
In the future, we would love to raise enough money to buy a food truck and branch further out into the community.

Zonta House is one of the largest refuge association's in Western Australia. Our vision is to provide support services to women who have experienced family and domestic violence, homelessness and any other crises enabling them the opportunity to make safe and sustainable life choices.
The four service arms of Zonta:

* Transitional Accommodation (18 properties) and
* Positive Pathways (Education/Counselling/Community Awareness);
* Safer Pathways (keeping women and children safe in their own homes)

The Positive Pathways program in particular is based on prevention, intervention, recovery and preparation and includes education workshops, coaching, mentoring, and counselling for women and children. Our belief is that we cannot say goodbye to our clients at the refuge - that we have a duty and a responsibility to help these clients rebuild their lives with as much support as possible. Currently 20 other refuges, government agencies and community organisations also refer to this award winning service.

RSPCA WA
#175 of 656 Charities with 22 votes
RSPCA WA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has been a voice for animals in Western Australia for over 120 years. RSPCA WA is responsible, through our Inspectorate, for enforcing the Animal Welfare Act (2002). We work with government, industry bodies and the community to improve animal welfare and campaign on a range of issues such as puppy farming or illicit breeding, promoting higher welfare food, and ending live export.

RSPCA WA is a charity and relies on fundraising activities for 94% of its funding. Without your generous support, RSPCA WA would be unable to provide crucial services that are required to stop animal cruelty.

Last year RSPCA WA received more than 15,000 cruelty calls, investigated over 6,000 cruelty complaints, provided 130,000 days of animal care and rehomed hundreds of animals.
RSPCA upholds five freedoms for animals:
- freedom from hunger and thirst
- freedom from discomfort
- freedom from pain, injury and disease
- freedom to express normal behaviour; and
- freedom from fear and distress.

There are many ways you can support RSPCA WA – through donations, fundraising events, volunteering, foster care, sponsorships or adopting one of our rescued animals. Visit rspcawa.asn.au for more information.

Animals Asia Foundation (Australia) Limited
#181 of 656 Charities with 21 votes
Animals Asia’s goal is to close every last bear bile farm in Asia and build respect and kindness towards bears. Currently there are over 10,000 bears confined in cages on bile farms in China, and about 1,200 suffering the same fate in Vietnam. Many bears are caged their entire lives - up to 30 years - in cages so small that they are unable to turn around or stand on all fours. As if that wasn’t cruel enough, the bears suffer regular bile extraction - a hideously painful practice involving various invasive techniques that cause massive infection in the bears. Bear bile is used in traditional medicine many ordinary household products. The cruel practice continues despite the availability of a large number of effective and affordable herbal and synthetic alternatives.

Seeing these beautiful creatures suffer this pointless cruelty regularly brings us to tears. But what drives us on is working with our rehabilitated bears in our bear rescue centres in China and Vietnam.

Animals Asia works with, not against, the authorities and it’s a method that works. With your help, we can achieve so much more.

Pets Haven Foundation Limited
#185 of 656 Charities with 19 votes
Pets Haven Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation (non-government funded) which re-homes orphan felines and canines who would otherwise have no future. Our highest value is "pro-life". We rescue from death row pounds, cruelty cases, puppy farms and the community. We endeavour to responsibly rehouse these orphans back into the community in order to give them a second chance at life.

Every case is unique and each animal is managed according to their particular circumstances and current condition. Animals that do not require rehabilitation are kept at the shelter whilst awaiting their forever home, whilst those in need of medical attention are placed into approved foster homes with all medical provisions paid for by Pets Haven. When the animal has recovered and is in good health, it will then be placed up for adoption.

Animals that enter Pets Haven have generally been mistreated, are malnourished, abused or neglected and often require extensive medical treatment which is always provided to ensure a full recovery. Our foster carers help immensely in that they provide a wonderful, safe and loving home environment so that the rehabilitation process can be successful.

Zambi Wildlife Retreat
#188 of 656 Charities with 19 votes
Zambi Wildlife Retreat is Australia's first and only animal welfare establishment that can Rescue, Rehabilitate, Re-home and offer Shelter to a wide range of species.
While our focus will be on exotic animals needing retirement from zoo breeding programs, circus and private ownership, we also provide care and shelter to domestics, farm animals and native wildlife. Emergency rescue is available across all species.
Managed by highly qualified staff and volunteers, Zambi Wildlife Retreat ensures the health, saftey and dignity to all animals in our care.
Currently we are applying for a permit to construct an animal display establishment with the NSW government. This will enable us to conduct educational classes and seminars, which will help fund the running costs of Zambi Wildlife Retreat. Our Development Application has already been approved by local council and we are now awaiting our permit from DPI to begin construction of our new area. This area will house lions, tigers, puma, birds and reptiles. Presently we care for over 100 animals including 24 big cats (lions and tigers). We are also partnered with Open Colleges as a real world training ground for students studying to be animal carers. We are in desperate need of donations and corporate sponsorship to continue caring for the animals and to establish a secure future for the animals that call Zambi their forever home.
LOTL Rescue, established in 2012, is the founding company of Zambi Wildlife Retreat and operates as a registered charity in NSW (Australia). CF23435
Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary Incorporated
#189 of 656 Charities with 19 votes
The Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary (GSDS) was established in 1990 by Jo-Anne Kokas (OAM) to care for rescued donkeys. It offers shelter, food, refuge and care for abandoned, neglected, mistreated or ill donkeys. It also offers a home for donkeys that are unable to be cared for by their owners due to sickness or simply moving to an unsuitable location.

Most of these donkeys come to the attention of the GSDS via the public, RSPCA, police or rangers. Sometimes the donkeys are delivered to the Sanctuary and sometimes the Sanctuary has to organise collection.

The GSDS is located at Glen William which is around 30 kms south of Dungog in the picturesque Upper Hunter Valley. The property covers 300 acres which is divided into paddocks that offering both hilly and flat grazing land. A specialist Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is located on the property which includes stalls and equipment to cater for the needs of very sick donkeys that need constant care. The herd fluctuates between 70 and 150 donkeys with up to 12 in the ICU.

In addition to the herd, a further 100 donkeys are currently in foster homes, mostly as companion animals and occasionally as work animals – donkeys can be used as guardians to protect herds of sheep and goats from wild dogs. These fostered donkeys always remain the property of the GSDS so they can be returned to the Sanctuary should their living or health circumstances change.

The GSDS is a non-profit registered charity. It receives no government funding and relies totally on the generosity of the public.

Muddy Puddles Foundation Inc
#191 of 656 Charities with 17 votes
Muddy Puddles Foundation supports South Australian children fighting chronic and complex
bowel and bladder conditions requiring surgical interventions.

We connect these little warriors, and their families, with one another so that they can see they’re not alone in their sometimes very private and painful struggles.
Muddy Puddles children rely on the help of their parents and carers to help them to empty their bladders and bowels every day. They are very used to hospitals and have had more surgeries than most of us could ever imagine.
By giving to this foundation, you will be supporting these children and their families directly to ensure they get to have some awesome experiences that they may not ordinarily be able to have without support.
Some of these experiences include:
 Family fun days with specialist art or sport sessions for the children
 Overnight camps for affected children and their families where medical and therapeutic support is offered
 Play Therapy for affected children to help them work through the medical trauma that many of them suffer as a result of numerous and ongoing medical procedures
 Early Preventative Therapies to hopefully reduce the impact of medical trauma in their teen and adult years
 Break out groups for mums and dads (together and separately) to discuss research based interventions for their child’s complex conditions and to give psychological support where needed
 Maintaining and sustaining the connections made between affected children to ensure they are constantly reminded they are not alone and that their experiences can be valued and understood
Life's Little Treasures Foundation
#191 of 656 Charities with 17 votes
Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to providing comprehensive information and support to families with a premature or sick baby. We help give these children the best possible start in life and take care of the wellbeing of the whole family.

Our mission is to ensure that no family endures the difficult and life-changing experience of having a premature or sick baby without easy access to critical information and support. We intimately understand the needs of parents and families and we are always there to guide them through their journey, from pregnancy and birth, through the hospital stay and transition home, into the early years of childhood and beyond.

We bring together the expertise and guidance of leading health professionals, social workers, researchers and trained volunteers to reduce trauma and empower parents to make the best choices for their family. In doing so, we help reduce instances of mental health problems, alleviate financial hardship and lower the risk of relationship breakdown which these families are highly vulnerable to.

Life's Little Treasures Foundation does not receive any government funding and relies on donations and fundraising to make our work possible.

Your support allows us to meet the immediate needs of families in crisis, as well as plan for our long-term future. Your gift, combined with an incredible team of volunteers and generous donations of pre-loved baby gear, means that we multiply the impact of your support. We helped 7,383 families last financial year, the average family spends $2000 on nursery equipment – multiplied by 7,383, that’s $14,766,000 those families would not have been able to afford. Through financial donations, volunteer support (we have one part-time staff member for every 100 volunteers), and donations of pre-loved baby gear, we were able to give those families everything they needed to keep their children safe for less that $1Million.

Our beautiful "WISH" animals have wound up here, due to no fault of their own. Please email wishrescueteam@gmail.com with any enquiries..

We at WISH have made a promise to them, to find them new homes, with perfect families-who will be there forever.

The adoption fee for our dogs & puppies is $550 (unless stated otherwise) and covers all the vet work that has been done/or will be done for them - Sterilisation, Microchipping, Vaccination, and they have all received Flea & Intestinal worm treatment and a vet check.
They are in foster care throughout Perth, until the perfect home comes along..

ADOPTION PROCESS ...
Some animals will receive more than one application for adoption, therefore some things can take a little longer than we'd like as we are a volunteer based organisation with limited resources. Adoption fee is $550 which covers the vet work that each dog recieves.Some dogs have a different adoption fee-but it depends on age and vet work...

Please follow this process for your adoption enquiry;

Firstly

1) http://www.wishanimalrescue.org.au/adform/

2) Fill in our adoption inquiry form so we can learn more about you, your family and lifestyle.

3) A meet and greet can be organised with the foster carer, once questionnaire and yard pictures have been viewed.

3) Wish Animals Rescue will conduct a house check if we believe you to be a suitable applicant.

5) Adoption form & adoption fee is to be completed prior to the re homing of the animal-there is a safe two week trial period.

6) After a successful trial period, the animal becomes a permanent member of the family and their new life begins, and this is our Wish...

Second Chance Animal Rescue Inc
#207 of 656 Charities with 14 votes
Second Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 after vet nurse and local shelter volunteer Marisa Debattista witnessed firsthand how many beautiful animals needed help, versus how little resources were available.

Knowing she could make a change, Marisa launched Second Chance Animal Rescue with a few vet nurse friends and a handful of animals. Since then, we've grown into a network of hundreds of foster carers and other volunteers, with just as many cats and dogs in care. We're proud to say that by the end of 2015 over 6000 animals had been rescued from not-so-pleasant fates in pounds and shelters throughout Victoria, and are now happily settled in new homes around the state. (Of course, our adopters will tell you, the question remains about just who saved who!)

On April 19th, 2015, after many years of planning and endless fundraising efforts, our first animal shelter opened in Campbellfield, Victoria. This allows us to save more animals and gives potential adopters the chance to meet animals in a happy, relaxed space. We'd love you to visit us. Who knows? You might just meet your new best friend.

Second Chance Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status

Please consider a bequest to Second Chance Animal Rescue in your will. With your help, we can continue our rescue work for years to come.

#208 of 656 Charities with 13 votes
Dairy Farming Families are suffering immeasurable financial pressures bought on by the devastating drop at the farm gate of milk prices especially in Victoria and Tasmania by milk processors Fonterra and Murray Goulburn who incidentally made profits for their shareholders. Some Dairy Farming Families have already had to leave the industry and many more are on the brink of financial ruin. Abnormal rain events over the past three months in Victoria and Tasmania have increased pressure as Farmers resort to hand feeding their cows, problem is many farmers can’t afford to buy in hay because they are not being paid for their milk, many Dairy farmers are running at a loss.

Aussie Helpers have assisted hundreds of Dairy Farming Families with more than three thousand round bales of hay delivered directly to farms in need free of any charge to help keep their cows fed and farms operating.
It is time for all of you who really care about our Dairy Farming Families to help Aussie Helpers continue with our work, keeping in mind that we have already spent $400,000 assisting our Dairy Farmers over the past three months.
We are asking you to donate, just five dollars if that's all you can afford and more if you are able as there is no help from the Government as they just don't care. We must work around Helen Keller's words and donate to get moving.
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much"

What differentiates Anonymous X from other agencies is that our overall focus is to not only make a different in these peoples lives but develop friendships to last a life time. In order to do this we just be ourselves! It's very simple, but together as a team we have built a reputation that is well known and respected on our streets. Over the years we have developed countless friendships with individuals who are sleeping rough, some to the point we'd even consider them family. That is because we go beyond just the physical donations we can provide. We provide an ear to listen and a heart that cares.

The "Anonymous X" name stands for personal before political, thereby our aim is to raise awareness of the issues of homelessness and disadvantaged.
We genuinely care about the people we helps, welfare. We will sit and listen to their stories, get to know more about their journey and what led to them sleeping on our streets.
We have a volunteers program in which we run fortnightly called "X - Marks the Spot.”
This is designed to give volunteers an opportunity to experience the cause they are supporting, first hand. Together our team distribute all the amazing donations given to as many individuals, groups, organisations, shelters as we possibly can.

We work hard to save many animals most of the animals that come into our care are surrendered or saved by third parties from terrible situations.

Sometimes we temporarily place animals in kennels to ensure they have a chance, this is only while we seek a carer or forever home. It is not our preference but sometimes it is their only chance. We continually fundraise to cover kennel and medical expenses. We are lucky to have volunteers who do this for us. But always we need to be careful with our expenses and therefore are always grateful for additional funds.

Since 2009 we have developed a reputation as an ethical breed specific Organisation within the animal welfare community and continue to build positive relationships founded on open and respectful communication with shelters or pounds, other rescue groups, registered breeders and members of the Dachshund Community.

We understand that life changes for people. Whether it is a family break up, moving overseas, an owner has passed away, no longer enough time to spend with your dachshund, children or any other number of reasons they come for rehoming, we work with you in a non- judgemental manner to make sure that your dachshund goes to a home where they will be ideally suited. Our dachshunds are placed with people who know and understand the quirks of this breed.

All our dachshunds are desexed, vaccinated, heartwormed and invariably have to undergo extensive dentals before they can be rehomed. Any donations received go straight to the veterinary care of our dachshunds.

Pounds are extremely stressful places for a dachshund so please contact us for help so that they do not have to go through one. We do not charge for helping you rehome your dachshund and we do not judge anybody who needs to rehome.

A Poultry Place
#254 of 656 Charities with 8 votes
A Poultry Place is a no kill sanctuary which offers a safe, permanent home to rescued and unwanted domesticated poultry (roosters, chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese). The sanctuary focuses on poultry because they are the most exploited group of animals in today’s society, with almost 50 billion being slaughtered each year, most having been farmed in cramped windowless sheds and battery cages. Some of the residents are products of school hatching projects, which only serve to teach kids to view animals as disposable products; or have been dumped in public parks or roadsides. While the sanctuary’s primary focus is on domesticated poultry there is also a resident sheep flock, a resident pride of cats and two resident goats. All residents have a carefree existence – they are not exploited for food or clothing and are free to roam during the day. Since 2001 A Poultry Place has assisted more than 2600 beings by offering them temporary or permanent shelter.

Our mission at Freedom Hill Sanctuary is to re-home or provide a safe haven for animals that have been rescued from abuse, exploitation or neglect. We also aim to change the way people view farm animals and promote, educate and encourage compassionate cruelty-free living.

Life begins at Freedom Hill for all our rescues and each and every one will always have a safe, happy and forever home. We are not open to the public yet but our future plan is to open the sanctuary for weekend visits and later school visits.

WildCats Animal Welfare
#269 of 656 Charities with 7 votes
WildCats rescue and rehome lost, abandoned, dumped and injured cats and kittens out on the streets of southeast Queensland. We've been doing this work since 2002 and registered as a charity in 2009. Without our help, these animals would never make it into a shelter and would instead die from starvation and dehydration, illness or untreated injuries. We rescue many young orphaned kittens who have been taken from their mothers and dumped, often in industrial estate skip bins. We provide veterinary care, get them desexed, chipped, vaccinated and housetrained then find loving homes for them. It is hard work and we rely entirely on donations. We are all volunteers.

Who we are
iSEE CARE believes in a love that has no strings attached. A love that is unconditional and puts others needs before our own. A love that is practical and loud – we call it ‘LOVE OUT LOUD’!

iSEE CARE demonstrates practical love or what we like to call ‘LOVE OUT LOUD’ to the school communities throughout the City of Brisbane and the wider state of Queensland. We do this in three simple ways – the CARE Hamper Program, the LOVE OUT LOUD Blitz Days and the iDECIDE Schools Tour.

CARE Hampers are distributed through school welfare programs, and we deliver direct to our school networks every week of the school term. Our LOVE OUT LOUD Blitz Days mobilizes a whole school community of teachers, parents, students and an army of iSEE CARE volunteers to come together, get involved and ‘blitz’ a local school. The iDECIDE Schools Tour is a curriculum based program. Our seminars are packed with energy, humour, music & dance and loads of real-talk. The seminar content is specifically created to help combat issues and challenges young people face today such as bullying, depression, suicidal thought, low self-efficacy and personal resilience.

Rosie's Place is funded by Family and Community Services, so all our services to families are free. Rosie's Place is constantly seeking external financial support from the community to expand on our therapeutic work. Over the years additional donations and grants has allowed Rosie's Place to create and self publish resources for our clients and the wider community, as well as set up a sensory play space, garden and art therapy space and pay for a therapy dog for the service. To date Rosies Place has created 22 books and 1 board game. These publications give voice to our clients stories and their continuing struggle to hang on to their connections of hope when violence has ripped it from their young lives. We believe we have a responsibility to capture those stories of our clients
to acknowledge their experiences and have their voices heard. We currently have several resources we are wanting to develop for children and young people including a protective behaviours resource, children rights card game and young mens art book. But we can only have these resources printed with the help of the community through donations.

We rescue.
We take the dogs and puppies from the pounds who have been left behind, and we mend their hearts, love them, rehabilitate and retrain the older dogs, readying them to be a part of someones' life with vital vet work all completed.
We will also bring in puppies as a result from "accidents" , we will pay to de-sex Mum dog, and with kindness and expertise, we ready the puppies for their new lives.

Rescuing kittens from precarious circumstances sees us hand rearing tiny beings, giving them all they need and more, ensuring wonderful homes are found, and the vet work, again, will always be done.
Working in our community with the more vulnerable sees YPPR busy assisting people with their pets in many and varied ways. Non judgmental, confidentiality assured, we are paying it forward and to see the smiles on the faces of those we help is more than enough reward.

Moorook Animal Shelter
#301 of 656 Charities with 5 votes
The Moorook Animal Shelter has been rehoming unwanted dogs and cats since 1999 and during this time the shelter has managed to home thousands of dogs and puppies, cats and kittens. The shelter has made such a difference for so many of the abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats not only in the Riverland but across South Australia The shelter was founded upon a no kill, open inclusion philosophy and does not discriminate; we provide a second chance for all ages, genders, breeds, colours and sizes as every dog and cat deserves to find a loving home. We have often taken in animals refused by other shelters. In an effort to reduce the number of animals in shelters, desexing and immunisations are included in a minimal adoption cost (for dogs this also includes micro-chipping). Our focus has primarily been the 3 Rs; rescue, rehabilitate and rehome, fundraising was always a secondary consideration with very generous supporters and sponsorships meaning that all donations were gratefully received with minimal appeals required. Unfortunately that has now changed. We receive no government assistance and the shelter is run by dedicated volunteers and aided by the public who support the essential community service the shelter provides.

Ausnep australia
#304 of 656 Charities with 5 votes
Established in January 2008, as a not for profit organisation, Ausnep achieved charitable status & tax deductibility on 13 April 2015.
Ausnep's vision is to provide a health link between two countries; providing free surgical & dental procedures to those who have no means to access health care, in both remote & urban regions of Nepal.
Nepal is a beautiful country steeped in culture and tradition, located in the southern part of asia. Land locked between China, Tibet & India, it is one of the poorest countries in the world, & one of the least developed.
Nepal is south asia's third poorest country, (World Bank Report), life expectancy is around 60 years of age. Approximately 55.1% of the population live below the poverty line and have little or no access to health care, living on less than $1.25(US) per day. Despite improvements, the 'gap' between rich and poor continues to widen. (Asian Development Bank ADB report, August 09 ).
With all these issues in mind, Ausnep believes, any contribution made, is of value to this small country; where eight of the worlds highest mountains reach for the sky.
It is easy to become totally enamored with the people: their depth of soul!, for in this country, those who have so little, offer so much about the real values of life.

Southern Tas Cat Rescue Inc
#314 of 656 Charities with 4 votes
We are a small group, mainly based in the Huon, Kingborough and Far South areas of Tasmania, although we will take cats from other areas if we have room. We are dedicated to rescuing and re-homing unwanted cats and kittens. STCR accepts surrendered pet cats/kittens from the public and also traps feral/stray animals. This helps protect wildlife by reducing the number of cats hunting in the local environment. STCR cat and kittens are cared for by a dedicated group of foster carers who spend considerable time and effort socialising and preparing the cats and kittens for eventual re-homing. All cats and kittens accepted by STCR are de-sexed, micro-chipped and vaccinated before being re-homed.
Our organisation also works to educate the public on responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on de-sexing. We further promote and support the confinement of cats indoors or in a secure outdoor enclosure, for the safety of the cat and to help protect Tasmania’s native animals.
We rely on donations from the public and our adoption fees but this barely covers our veterinary costs. Our foster carers pay for their own cat food, litter, bedding and basic veterinary supplies.
Ideally, we would like to de-sex, microchip and vaccinate all cats and kittens as soon as we can, but we do not have the funds. We generally wait until a cat is adopted before we arrange veterinary procedures. No cat leaves us for a permanent home until it is de-sexed, microchipped and vaccinated.
It is very upsetting to all concerned when we have no available foster carers or sufficient funds and can no longer accept surrendered cats.

Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation Limited
#314 of 656 Charities with 4 votes
Mitochondrial disease (mito) is a debilitating genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure and potentially death. It is terminal. There is no cure and few effective treatments.

One in 200 people are at risk of mito, making it the second most common, serious genetic disease after cystic fibrosis. One Australian child born each week will develop a severe or life-threatening form of mitochondrial disease.

The Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (AMDF) supports sufferers and their families, funds essential research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders, and increases awareness and education about this devastating disease.

The AMDF’s mission is to support the mito community whilst seeking a cure. Founded by and working closely with those from the mito community, the AMDF strives to provide support services that help those affected by mito to feel more informed, empowered, connected and less isolated.
The AMDF is committed to finding an urgently needed cure for mitochondrial disease and believe that funding research is the only way a cure and effective treatments will be developed. As such the AMDF is driving research into mito by identifying and funding strategic research initiatives that improve diagnosis and treatment, and translate into preventions and cures.

Whale And Dolphin Conservation (Australasia)

WDC Australasia is currently running a number of campaigns, these include:
 Supporting a comprehensive Marine Protected Area network around Australia
 Opposing oil and gas exploration in sensitive South Australian marine areas
 Helping to protect the endangered maui/ hector dolphin populations in New Zealand
 Working to end Japanese whaling in and around Antarctic waters

We also work with the successfully recognised DolphinWatch program which currently operates in 2 states coordinating school students to work in citizen science projects conducting dolphin surveys in their local waters.

As well as researching and lobbying for increased protection for the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary population, WDC believes that the dolphins would be best served by establishment of a Dolphin Interpretive Centre next to the water. The success of the Sanctuary ultimately depends on the education of residents, user groups, visitors and all people living in the stormwater catchment area. To achieve this success, and fulfil its required objectives the Sanctuary requires a public profile.

Broken Hill Pet Rescue
#314 of 656 Charities with 4 votes
Broken Hill Pet Rescue is a non-profit organisation committed to saving on average 400 animals per year that are surrendered or abandoned at the Broken Hill Pound.

We are unique in the way we operate acting as a stopgap, providing these animals who are at risk of being euthanised with temporary homes whilst we look for adoptive homes or alternative rescue.

Our work is supported by volunteer carers, fundraising activities and donations received. Funds are spent on a variety of things to provide for the animals such as food, medicines, vetwork, topical treatments and anything else that they may require.

We believe that no animal should be euthanised simply because they found themselves unwanted or in unfortunate circumstances and work tirelessy to educate the community on resposnible pet ownership. We strongly support microcipping, vaccinations and desexing of every animal in our care.

We aim to support the rescues we work with both financially and with our services. We are provide extensive notes and information on our animals, temperment testing every animal that comes into our care. During busy periods of time or when we have a lot of animals going to certain rescues we will cover the costs of transport, vet work or release fees to take away some of the financial burden.

To sustain the work that we do we seek support from other organisations and groups. Without donations we would not be able to provide these animals with the new start that each and every one of them deserve.

Sanfilippo Children's Foundation
#348 of 656 Charities with 3 votes
Our mission is to fund medical research so a cure can be found in time for children battling Sanfilippo today and those born with it tomorrow.
Sanfilippo Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is progressive, neurodegenerative and always fatal. It is estimated that 2,000 babies are born each year worldwide with Sanfilippo and life expectancy is just 12 – 20 years. There is currently no treatment, so a child diagnosed with this condition and their family face many challenges for which the foundation was created to address. These include limited opportunity to access emerging treatment and clinical trials; lack of up to date and accurate information; and as a rare disease there is significant isolation and lack of an accessible support network dedicated to the condition.
Since our inception in 2013 we have funded 6 research projects both in Australia and overseas. Our funding is critical as research in any field is highly competitive and grossly limited, but for rare diseases this is further exacerbated. Researchers struggle to obtain funding from traditional sources due to the relatively small patient numbers and inadequate return on commercial investment. We are directing much needed funds into critical research for a condition that until now has been largely neglected.

Zaidee Rose Alexander Turner – aged 7 years and 22 days died suddenly on 2nd December 2004 from a burst blood vessel in her brain called a Cerebral Aneurism. Zaidee’s parents, Kim and Allan, founded Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation not long after.
At the time of Zaidee’s death the Turner family had been registered Organ and Tissue Donors for 5 years. As a result Zaidee donated her organs and tissues at the Royal Children’s Hospital, as were her wishes at the time.
Zaidee’s gifts help save or improve the lives of 7 people.
Zaidee was the only child in Victoria under the age of 16 years and we have been told one of the youngest Australians to donate her organs and tissues in 2004. She was only 1 of 6 children nationally to donate their organs in 2004.
Zaidee’s Story is directed towards both children and adults so they can think about others who are waiting for a life saving operation and a suitable match for an organ or tissue. Think about giving this gift to others so they can live a better life and in some cases, have a second chance at life.

Fauna Rescue Of South Australia Inc
#348 of 656 Charities with 3 votes
When you find native wildlife needing help in South Australia, who do you call? Fauna Rescue SA is an independent, not-for-profit organisation providing native wildlife rescue and rehabilitation services. We operate three 24-Hour Wildlife Rescue Hotlines and the only specialist Koala Rescue Unit in SA. Our highly skilled and experienced teams of wildlife specialists are all volunteers. We receive no government funding. In the past 30 years Fauna Rescue SA has grown to become the largest wildlife welfare organisation in SA - the responsibility is huge and the financial burden greater.

Rescued wildlife need specialist care. In most cases our volunteers are trained, experienced and accredited to treat them. In others we rely on support from a network of veterinary clinics across Adelaide who mostly provide us with low or no cost services. Post initial treatment these animals almost always require rehabilitation prior to release. If not for Fauna Rescue SA over 7000 sick, injured or orphaned wild animals such as koalas would simply have nowhere to go for the specialist care they require.

Funds raised will help with ongoing costs such as specialist rescue equipment, medication, some veterinary services, feed, and wildlife enclosures. Fauna Rescue SA is a registered charity with deductible gift recipient status for personal donations over $2.

Foodbank WA
#348 of 656 Charities with 3 votes
Foodbank WA help feed over 53,000 people every month, 22,000 of whom are children. In 2016 Foodbank provided 2.8 million kilos, which equates to over 100,000 meals a day. Hunger is a hidden crisis in Australia with over two million Australians, 1 in 6 seeking hunger relief at some point each year. Half of those in need are children. The annual Foodbank Hunger Report highlights that it’s not just the homeless and unemployed who are doing it tough but 74% of those in need are low income families including single parents. Also at risk are the elderly, people with a disability, refugees and people of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander descent.

While we have the scale and size to effectively fight hunger throughout the state, our Foodbank Hunger Report 2016 shows that there are at least 7,000 people who are being turned away every month due to the lack of available food. The need to bridge this gap becomes more compelling when you consider the benefits of ensuring every Australian has enough to eat. According to a recent Foodbank Hunger Report the return on our services include addressing immediate nutrition needs but also contributing to improvements in health, emotional wellbeing, sense of self-worth, social relationships and ultimately overall standard of living.

It’s clear that every meal provides people with more than just a full stomach today. It helps them and the community in which they live to achieve a brighter future. This is why we need your help. Join us in the fight to end hunger.

Cystic Fibrosis Queensland Limited
#348 of 656 Charities with 3 votes
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a degenerative condition that affects the lungs and digestive system. Just to survive, people living with cystic fibrosis endure a daily regimen of medication and physiotherapy. The average life expectancy for Australians with Cystic Fibrosis is 37 years. The prevalence of Cystic Fibrosis in Australia is the same as childhood leukaemia. The difference is that over 95% of children with leukaemia will be cured. There is still no cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is a not-for-profit organisation. In conjunction with other CF state and territory organisations, as well as Cystic Fibrosis Australia, Cystic Fibrosis Queensland advocates for those with CF, for research and clinical improvement programs. When you are living with Cystic Fibrosis, every day matters. The money we receive as an organisation goes directly to providing essential services and support which fellow Queenslanders need just to survive. Our organisation receives less than 13% of our funding from Government. We rely heavily on the development of corporate partnerships and community fundraising initiatives.
Donations help make lives just a little easier for people living with CF.

In 2012 we opened the first Asperger Centre in Australia and are running groups for children (5-10), a Youth (high school students), Adult self-help discussion group/Adult social and a craft group. We offer free information to families and individuals. Maintain a large lending resource library and provide clinical and non-clinical services. Our 5 psychologists can diagnose and support you and your family at a reasonable cost, well below city prices. An occupational therapist will compliment the support.
With the NDIS being rolled out in Queensland in 2019, our very very small funding we received from the State Government is going to come to an end. There are many families who will not be able to participate in the NDIS and experience financial stress. These families have the same rights to get support and the Asperger Centre will do that. Having said all that, we need your charity dollar to the larger organisations to be redirected to small charities like the Asperger Centre. Autism ration in Australia is currently 1:68 so you would have come across someone with Autism/Asperger within your family or friends circle.

Wildlife Rescue South Coast Incorporated

Our dedicated volunteers operate a 24/7 telephone rescue hotline, where anyone can report injured, sick or orphaned wildlife. Trained volunteers provide assistance to anyone with an injured possum, wallaby, flying fox, wombat, bird, snake or other native animal.

Many of the animals which we have in care at the moment are victims of human types of impact. With the recent holiday season and many holiday tourists, we have seen massive increases in animals injured by motor vehicles. Whilst the injuries to the adults are often too sever to be rehabilitated, we frequently find a baby or juvenile which can be saved.

baby possums, wombats, flying foxes and many more. Some stay with use for quite some time and their needs can be quite demanding. Our volunteers are really under a lot of pressure right now.

Western Chances rely on your donations to provide much needed support to young people in Melbourne's west. Western Chances assists motivated young people in Melbourne’s west to realise their potential by providing scholarships, opportunity programs and ongoing support.

Our scholarships provide funding for small items that have a big impact. Things like textbooks and tuition fees, laptops and internet access, maths calculators and MYKI cards. Our recipients face barriers that often result in an inability to purchase these essential items.

What we also give our young people is a sense of self-belief. One of the keys to our success is the ability to promote self-confidence, esteem, motivation and pride, ‘suggesting that a scholarship involves more than simply disbursing money.’ We’re so proud of the young people we’ve supported and continue to support, and the momentum we’ve achieved in just over a decade.

“Thanks for giving me the opportunity to renew my scholarship. I recently received a fully paid MYKI without which there would be no possible way for me to travel to school. In essence, without Western Chances I wouldn’t be able to continue with my high school education and complete Year 12 this year,” Western Chances Scholarship Recipient
Squishies Flat Faced Animal Rescue Incorporated
#394 of 656 Charities with 2 votes
In 2011, Paw Prints Private Rescue began as a small all breeds cat and dog rescue group in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Squishies Flat Faced Cat Rescue was founded in 2012, to give flat faced cats all the special care they need and to find them homes that understand the commitment they require. After 4 years of running Paw Prints and Squishies Cat Rescue side by side, we have now merged the two groups creating Squishies Flat Faced Animal Rescue Incorporated. As a result of the hundreds and hundreds of animals we have taken in over the past 7 years, we have an outstanding vet bill at Maroondah Vet Clinic of over $25,000. As hard as we try to reduce this enormous bill, with animals still coming into care, we just cannot find the money to continue to save lives and pay off the debts of the hundreds of animals that are now living happily ever after in their forever homes.

$1 in Donations will put them in 1st Place. Donate now
Stafford Rescue Victoria was started with the intent to establish a central point of contact for those who had lost or found a Stafford. Unfortunately this service is fast becoming one of the most used. Today our aim is:

*To promote the welfare of unwanted and destitute pure bred Staffords regardless of age if the quality of life is still good.
*To raise funds towards this aim. To maintain funds for SRV.
*To operate an adoption scheme for the protection of these dogs and to provide a happy and secure home.

With the increasing popularity of the breed more Staffords are ending up in shelters or unwanted pets. In some cases the ‘Staffy’ has become the fashion accessory of youth.
For some it’s a fleeting encounter as they are faced with the needs of an energetic dog that quickly becomes too demanding on their time. It’s a fact that Staffordshire Bull Terriers need to be ‘Part of the Family’. They simply cannot be left in the backyard.

With a deep knowledge for the breed the current rescue co-coordinators are Jan Hutton & Linda Szirer, along with several other volunteers.
There is no ‘used- by date’ placed on SRV Staffords, they are cared for and loved as long as needed until a suitable ‘Forever Home’ is found.

We have commercials, social media adverts and billboards ready to saturate our nation warning them about this highly addictive and destructive drug ICE.
Consider what AAIC can bring to your community. What are you doing about our national ICE issue? Have you educated your loved ones against this highly destructive and debilitating drug? The truth is ICE is taking lives daily... killing, stealing and destroying families and communities nationally. We encourage Australia to join us in the fight against ICE. us educate more kids on the dangers of ICE
27 youth a DAY are becoming dependant on ICE - the end result for ice addicts is JAIL, MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES OR DEATH
Only 2 percent of ice addicts actually recover from ICE addiction - help us educate our youth

Today in Australia, Indigenous children are twice as likely to be developmentally vulnerable as non-Indigenous children.

Every year the Cathy Freeman Foundation provides education programs to thousands of Indigenous children across Australia to help improve attendance, confidence and goal-setting skills.

The success of our programs speaks for themselves. For example, in 2016 one of our wonderful partner schools, Xavier Catholic School in Wurrumiyanga NT, is finishing the year with a 400% increase in Year 12 graduates compared to the year before.

But we need your help to keep these positive trends going. By supporting the Cathy Freeman Foundation, every dollar you donate helps us to close the education gap once and for all and help Indigenous children build bright futures.

We are a self funded QLD based animal rescue that survives on public donations and fundraising to keep saving lives.
We have saved nearly 1000 animals in 3 years and this number continues to grow unfortunately quicker than we can help.
$5,000 would go towards the purchase of a vehicle that we can use for transporting animals, collecting physical donations, food donations and vet trips where we have multiple animals being seen on any one day.
Or, $5,000 could desex 40 male puppies or 30 female puppies. Or it could microchip 200 animals.
Without the help from our supporters and donations such as this, we have minimal resources and rely on the Committee and Volunteers for many things that can only be sustained for so long.
We spend hours at fundraisers to raise $300.......... It's not the most efficient way to raise funds, but we do what we have to do.
We also pride ourselves in educating the public on many aspects of animal welfare, health, diet, training and many other topics.
$5,000 is an awesome amount of money and we could only be so lucky as to be the recipient.

Edmund Rice Camps provides recreational camps programs for children aged 6-16 and families experiencing disadvantage during school holidays. Young adults volunteer as ‘big buddies’ matched with a child for the week to be their mentor, positive role model, and best mate.
The children come to us through contact with Agency Groups within the community. Many come from families that may not be in a position to provide such experiences for their children, or are under pressure in some way. Referrals are taken from schools and agencies in a variety of fields in the Greater Brisbane region and beyond, including disability support, mental health, community housing, family support, social work and education.
We aim to boost participants’ independence and resilience through an increased sense of self-worth, inner and outer confidence fostered by the 1-on-1 attention and friendship of our volunteers, and also provide a much-needed break from often difficult circumstances.
Money raised for ERC contributes to our on-camp resources, hiring catered camp sites, a broader range of activities and the training of our volunteers. This has a positive and direct impact on the number of children for whom we can make a difference.

Approximately 8.7% of babies born in Australia are born premature. The Preterm Infants Parents Association Inc. (PIPA) is a Queensland based charity which offers practical and emotional support to the families of these infants born premature. Our goal is to raise awareness of premature birth and to provide understanding, information, encouragement, friendship and, where possible, financial assistance to parents of preterm infants.

PIPA is maintained entirely by volunteers, most of whom are parents of prematurely born children. We have seen families lives turned upside down as they rise to the challenge of caring for a premature or sick newborn that must spend time in a neonatal intensive or special care nursery. Not only must they deal with the emotional turmoil associated with the uncertainty surrounding the prognosis of their child’s outcome but also they are often faced with financial hardship. These financial pressures may arise from the need to live away from home for extended periods, from taking unexpected leave of absences from employment, additional childcare expenses or from the costs associated with travelling back and forward to the hospital each day. That is why we need your help.

Aardvark targets young people experiencing adversity, such as:
- Having chronic medical condition
- Suffering from Mental health issues
- In an unstable home accommodation
- Significant/acute life challenges
- Living in rural or isolated locations.

Many of the young people involved in Aardvark have immense talent but due to various life circumstances don’t have access to music tuition or instruments. The young people participate in weekly sessions, called The Aardvark Sessions, with the facilitators guiding through a supported group process and every step involved in song writing, music arrangement, recording and performance.

After the Aardvark sessions opportunities are offered to stay connected in Aardvark and provide links to the music industry and opportunities for skills development and employment pathways.

FareShare rescues surplus food and cooks free, nutritious meals for Victorians doing it tough.

Every year, two million Australians will experience hunger. But, over the same period, we’ll also waste 200kg of food for every man, woman and child in the nation. This doesn’t make any sense. Melbourne food charity FareShare is doing something about it by rescuing surplus, quality food from supermarkets, farmers and other businesses.
With the help of 800 regular volunteers, FareShare cooks this food into 25,000 free nutritious meals a week for Victorian charities – such as soup vans, homeless shelters, food banks and school breakfast programs. We do this in Australia’s largest charity kitchen, based in Abbotsford.

FareShare does not receive regular government funding to cover the costs of our operations.

Your donation will help us to collect surplus food from supermarkets, farmers and other food businesses. It will also pay for the cost of running our kitchen, and then distributing food to hundreds of Victorian charities. We are fortunate to receive pro bono support from many businesses – helping to cover the costs such as maintenance of commercial kitchen equipment, packaging and offsite food storage. However, we need to raise money to keep our six refrigerated vans on the road every day, pay for electricity to run our ovens and coolrooms and employ chefs to oversee nearly 100 volunteers a day.

The Thin Green Line Foundation provides urgent aid, equipment, training and funding to Rangers and their families in low-income countries and conflict zones. The organisation also works with Indigenous Rangers in Australia and abroad.

Rangers often work for little reward or recognition, risking and regularly losing their lives to protect the world’s wildlife and its fragile ecosystems.

These brave men and women who stand on the frontline of conservation to safeguard our planet urgently need our help. A ranger is killed in the line of duty every three days – often violently at the hands, machetes and guns of criminal poachers.

Without Rangers we stand to lose so much.

The Thin Green Line Foundation (TTGLF) is the only organisation solely dedicated to providing Rangers with the assistance they deserve and need. As the official charity arm of the International Ranger Federation, TTGLF has unparalleled access to Rangers worldwide.

The Thin Green Line Foundation is highly successful at delivering much needed support to Rangers, with a wide range of effective programs worldwide – from Kenya to Tanzania, Costa Rica to Guatemala, Thailand to Indonesia, and in many, many more places around the globe.

In the sad circumstance of a Ranger losing his or her life in the line of duty, TTGLF helps to ensure the widows and families are looked after into the future.

With Lynch syndrome there is a lifetime cancer risk of up to 80% for colon cancer. For women, a lifetime risk of up to 60% for endometrial cancer. Other cancers at a much higher risk than the general population include, but are not limited to, ovarian, stomach, urinary tract, pancreatic, prostate and brain.

Everyone at LSA is a volunteer. We are five passionate women, all with full-time jobs. After a full day at work, we then come home get our families sorted and then take on LSA putting more hours in, working from our own homes after hours and on weekends. Fighting for a cause that has personally touched our lives. We are not a big corporation, we don’t yet have a nationally recognised ribbon day and donations are small.

More than 1 in 2 women are turned away from crisis shelters when they need one. More than 60% of these women (often with their children) are leaving domestic violence.

WCS exists to meet this ever-growing demand and works with local communities to develop collaborative responses to the problem by establishing new shelters.

Our shelters are characterized by community ownership, strong oversight and governance, the leveraging of in-kind support from the community, and dedicated volunteer programs. Our staffing model provides support to women 24/7 on-site.

WCS needs your support to help establish even more crisis shelters for women and children who are homeless or leaving domestic violence.

It is our aim to open 2 new shelters by the end of 2017, another in 2018 with one in the pipeline. A new shelter would support an additional 120 women and children per annum, with outreach and advice available across the local community.

We are funded on a unique and ground breaking tri-partite model, bringing together philanthropy, community and government.

Can you help us change the paradigm in NSW and give these women the support they need?

Every Australian child deserves a promising future, and a promising future starts with a great education.

But too often, a student's future is determined by their postcode or background. Children growing up in disadvantaged circumstances consistently fall behind at school - and once behind, it's hard to catch up. Did you know that at the age of 15, students from a disadvantaged background are 2.5 years behind in their learning compared with their peers?
Now you can help close this education gap.

Australian Schools Plus connects you with the schools that most need your support, to help all students fulfil their potential.
Your donation will go to projects designed by principals and teachers to have the greatest impact on their students’ lives, by providing extra support and resources or trialling new approaches to learning. More than 4,600 schools across Australia are eligible for support through Schools Plus.

Create a brighter future for students in need by giving to a disadvantaged school today.

“From the day that I was born, my family wished I was a boy.
My name is SHE…
As soon as I could walk, I helped my mother cook, clean, fetch water and look after the animals.
While my brothers are at school, I walk to fetch water. It’s a long way and I get scared.
Sometimes men hurt me.
Now I’m twelve and my parents are selling me to an old man to marry. They say it will be good for me. But it’s good for everyone except me.
Because I am a girl, they think I am nothing.

But I know that is not true.
I can learn, I have a voice, I have dreams, I can be what I want to be.
If I can see a doctor, I won’t die so young…and so often.
If I go to school, I can show my village many ways to do things better.
If you let me start a business I can help my family and my world.
When I walk with you I can do all these things.
When I walk with you, we can change the world together.
Because I am SHE
AND I AM NOT NOTHING!”

Young People Ahead Youth and Community Services Inc wishes to work with the most marganilised and at risk youth and their families to create a change for the better, by immersing itself firmly within the context of Cultural Identity, Community Connectedness and the use of Country to heal and restore vitality and resiliency.
YPA hopes to establish a Healing Centre for young people and their families and a place of tranquility that will provide an environment where workers can sit with individuals, and family members to unpack the disadvantage that persists in their lives, and how best to address these as a united from.
Through the support of local Elders, and support services in the local community, YPA hopes to articulate the goals each young person has identified, and working closely with the family, facilitate a road map to success for individuals and engage the services of agencies to assist in achieving these, always being mindful not to place boundaries around time frames to achieve these, but working with the strengths of the young person and their families to identity and further empower growth to a positively charged future full of aspirations, dreams and ability to belong and be present to input back into self, family and community. YPA hopes to brokerage off a number of services, volunteers and businesses to be involved in this space, and bring about a united front to tackle a number of underlying issues that prevent growth and opportunity, which spans across the ages and cultural spectrum. Together we can achieve so much, and seed funding to enable this to happen would be a blessing.

For over 165 years OzChild has fought to provide better ways to put a safe roof over the head of our most vulnerable and at-risk children; children who, for their own safety, can no longer live with their family as the result of family violence, abuse, alcohol and substance misuse, trauma and chronic neglect.

Every night of the year we keep more than 300 children safe in our foster care and kinship care programs. We provide support services to at-risk families in danger of falling apart. And we provide respite care for the families of children living with a disability to relieve some of the pressure and give the parents or carers a chance to recharge and refresh. We provide educational support and therapy.

We care for kids who need it and deserve it.

Each year OzChild gives more than 6,000 children, young people and their families a chance to shine.

We take in unwanted, stray, and surrendered ferrets, We also offer free vasectomised Hob services, to help prevent unwanted litters. We also offer boarding, and feed a biologically accurate diet. We rely on donations to help us help the ferrets who come into our care, some needing extensive and ongoing vetwork which can be quite expensive. Without the donations from kind hearted people, we couldn't help as many of the ferrets as we do. We have currently had an outbreak of distemper at one of our locations, locking this specific location down, which means any funds we have and have raised are being used to try and save as many ferrets as we can and for the huge vetbills that are to come. We run Unwanted Fuzz out of our own homes, relying on donations, and like all rescues, most of this does end up coming out of our own pockets. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thankyou, Unwanted Fuzz. Paypal is unwantedfuzz@outlook.com

We are passionate about support children in foster care and their carers. We provide a range of services to support children and their carers through the often difficult journey that is foster care.
When children are removed from their homes it is often a highly stressful and traumatic time and they leave with very few if any personal possessions. The charity was founded by Kelly Doyle and Glen Gillman who are foster carers and saw first hand children arrive in to their care with nothing but the clothes (or even pajama's) they were wearing.
Help us provide the basic essentials and some comfort items to these children who are removed from all that is familiar and are left with nothing.

Today, an estimated 1 in 10 Victorians have Specific Learning Difficulties (SLDs), including Dyslexia. Ultimately most live happy, meaningful lives, yet there are many children who are unable to reach their learning potential. Life with a SLD/Dyslexia can be really tough. Low self-esteem, disengagement and/or leaving school early is common - all with negative lifelong consequences. As a community, we have a shared responsibility to support these individuals and their families.

As the peak body in Victoria for individuals with Specific Learning Difficulties, we believe there is phenomenal potential for positive change in Victoria’s schools and workplaces if these children can learn in a way that suits them. For over 48 years, we serve to provide support and assistance to help them through their learning journeys, our services include but not limited to:
1) Full diagnostic assessments to provide a complete learning profile – strengths, deficits - a road map to guide what will work.
2) Capacity building workshops for teachers; allied health professionals; parents; teenagers.
3) Information/Advice services – for Government, parents/students; professionals.

Support and learning arise from accurate and timely understanding. This is our shared challenge, and we need your help. Donate today and help Victorians of all ages with Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties to reach their learning potential.

Today, brain cancer is the most fatal of all childhood cancers. Few new eective
treatments mean that 80% of children diagnosed with high grade tumours still lose
their battle within 5 years. This is why brain tumours are so devastating. We’re all about
changing the odds. To make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs. To support the
science and in the meantime the patients. In just four years we have established ourselves as the leading charity
for young people diagnosed with brain cancer and have strong partnerships with ANZCHOG (Aus and NZ Children's Haematology & Oncology Group. The Federal Government is partnering with us on our AIM BRAIN Project which will ensure every Australian child diagnosed will receive the best testing and treatment.

The Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan organisation with 120,000 supporters and over 750 active volunteers nationally. We educate, engage and inspire young people to take action on climate change and sustainability.

We believe that the only way to solve the climate crisis is through a social movement - a groundswell of support and momentum that is powerful enough to inspire the change we need and hold decision makers to account. We do this through:

• National grassroots networks where volunteers are supported, through one-to-one mentoring and local groups.

• Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network: a national network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people who are leading climate justice campaigns.

• Switched on Schools: each year we educate thousands of high school students about how to make a difference on climate change, and empower them to start their own campaigns in their school or community.

• Strategic national campaigns such as stopping the Adani from wrecking our Reef and climate with their dangerous Carmichael coal mine.

We are empowering our generation to make sure history is not written for us, but by us.
