Great Dane Rescue Victoria
#1 of 764 Charities Won $2,000
"We're very excited to have won the prize draw for June. Great Dane Rescue Victoria can’t thank you and UBank enough for your very generous prize pool, for not just us, but also the other lucky recipients.
We couldn’t have won, though, without the amazing support of our many followers, who voted and made some very generous donations to support our work with our beautiful Great Danes.
Thank you to each and every one who helped Great Dane Rescue Victoria win this amazing prize."
Finding loving, forever homes for unwanted/at risk Great Danes, Dane Xs and the occasional giant dog friend. We currently assist the Danes, Dane Xs and others in Victoria and some in NSW. Most of our Danes are in care in a foster home, being given the love and care they deserve as they wait for the perfect family to come along.
BARC (Bali Dog Adoption Rehabilitation Centre)
#2 of 764 Charities Won $1,000
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: www.barc4balidogs.org.au https://www.facebook.com/BaliDogAdoptionRehabilitationCentre/See More

Project Karma is an Australian registered charity, that fights sexual exploitation of children in South East Asia by using the innovative approach of partnering directly with the local leaders of local communities where sexual abuse of children is most prevalent (the “Sentinel Model”). Project Karma, and Glen Hulley its founder, have already enjoyed considerable success in rescuing dozens of children from serial child abusers in South East Asia, and in getting convictions. The most recent in October 2016 was Robert Ellis in Bali, who abused over 30 children. He was put away for 15 years (the longest ever term in Indonesia) thanks to the efforts of Project Karma.See More

At Pets of the Homeless (POTH), our mission is to aid in the wellbeing of people who are facing homelessness by helping them keep their pets. The healing power of companion animals is immeasurable and the strong bond created between a person and their pet is especially important to their homeless guardians as they are often marginalised and lack emotional security and support.

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. Together we can make a difference! We need your help, so we can help Victorians of all ages with Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties to reach their learning potential. 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 have served to provide support and assistance to help them through their learning journeys. Our services include but are 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. Please VOTE for us and SHARE today!See More

Rafiki Mwema means 'Loyal Friend' (in Swahili) and that is what we are to these young girls and boys. The impact of sexual abuse and the horrific circumstances around the lack of care and support for our children is heart breaking. In our 'family' we have little girls as young as two years old, up to teenagers who are now fifteen and at school. There is such stigma attached to a child who has been raped, in a culture that places blame on those who have suffered and ignores the perpetrators of these heinous crimes. We know that working with the girls is dealing with the outcome and not the initial problem. It is this approach and our connection with some local street boys in Kenya that led us to open our first boys project two years ago. We now have two houses where we therapeutically support boys who have survived the horrors of living alone on the streets, some from the tender age of five years old. These boys have been beaten, abused and used as sexual playmates for both men and women, often for the price of a cup of tea. They suffer all this without support and we know that without intervention and proper therapeutic care, they could go on to continue this cycle of abuse. At Rafiki Mwema we work with our boys and educate them to respect themselves and others. We give them the values to become safe brothers, husbands, uncles and fathers. All our children live as one 'Rafiki family', but in separate houses. They are therapeutically parented and receive regular therapy as individuals and in groups. They are supported to have safe contact with their families. Above all they are loved. We work with their families, the communities, schools, churches, villages, and government officials with the aim to break this cycle of abuse and let children live as children should. We are totally committed to supporting children who have experienced things we could not even imagine, to help heal their trauma and allow them to grow to love and be loved.See More
