Feeding the hungry through Foodbank www.foodbank.org.au feeding approximately 815,000 people each month. The distributed food is used in vital food relief programs such as community pantries and dining halls, mobile soup vans, emergency hampers and breakfast or lunch programs in schools.

Foodbank supports programs that  give disadvantaged students the opportunity to eat a nutritious breakfast on a regular basis. Having breakfast has been shown to have a positive impact on factors such as physical and mental health, social skills, concentration, behaviour, attendance and academic outcomes.

Based on a 2019 report from Foodbank, in the last year, more than one in five Australians (21%) have been in a situation where they have run out of food and been unable to buy more. 

More than one in four women in Australia (27%) have experienced food insecurity in the last 12 months. This compares to 18% of men. 

For every 2 notebooks sold, VICTRESS® donates 1 meal to disadvantaged Australians experiencing hunger.

WIRES https://www.wires.org.au

WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) is Australia's largest wildlife rescue organisation.

WIRES mission is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same.

The organisation has been rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife for over 30 years, beginning in 1985 in response to a glaring need for a native wildlife rescue service. At the time, no organisation, government or conservation group could take specific responsibility for native animal rescue and care. WIRES quickly established a coordinated network of wildlife carers and rescuers and officially launched as an organisation in March 1986. 

We will be donating 100% of our profits on purchases made within the next 48 hours. Finishes Sunday 12th January 2020 at 5.30pm AEST. 

You can also donate directly https://www.wires.org.au/donate/ways-to-help_

Please note we will resume donations to our usual charities from the 13th of January onwards.
