2022 has been another tough year for many Australians due to disasters and the ongoing impacts of Covid-19. People who would not normally ask for help are struggling to make ends meet. Christmas can be a very challenging time creating extra pressure and stress on family budgets, loneliness and isolation for others.With over consumption rife during the holidays, we are proposing the antidote to 'Christmas getting' by offering you the chance to give back this silly season.
La Niña, floods & storms
So far in 2022 we have seen record breaking floods in the Northern Rivers of NSW and Southern Queensland and adiditonal flooding in the Hawksbury, Hunter and Illawarra areas of NSW. Now the waters have risen again, the ground is saturated, the rivers are fast flowing and overflowing, residents in Victoria and Tasmania are the latest to be hit with a flooding disaster.
The global COVID-19 pandemic has lurched people into a state of ongoing uncertainty creating a new vulnerable community. People who would not normally ask for assistance are now jobless, struggling to support themselves and their families.
