Help Good360 assist communities impacted by Floods
Every $5 donated helps us deliver $100 of new goods to people affected by floods in Australia
Why You Should Donate
NSW and Queensland have just officially come out of La Niña, a complex weather pattern that leads to extreme rainfall, only to be once again hit by heavy rain causing the flood crisis to continue. The ground is saturated, the rivers are fast flowing and overflowing, residents in the Sydney, Hunter and Illawarra areas are once again in a disaster situation - they are mentally and physically exhausted. Good360 will continue to stand with these communities, providing the right goods to the right people at the right time.
Since March 2020, Good360 has connected more than 16 million items to disaster affected Australians. Since February 2022, we have delivered over 700,000 requested goods (valued at over $9.2M RRP) specifically to flood affected communities, you can read our Flood Report for all the details.
Good360 connects brand-new goods donated by businesses to people and communities who need them the most. Good360 matches the right goods, to the right people, at the right time through all stages of disaster recovery, to help local communities recover and rebuild, providing hope and dignity.
Our six-stage approach to Disaster Recovery is strategic and sustainable. We use a coordinated and collaborative approach, partnering with Australian businesses to deliver what’s needed at each stage of disaster recovery. We will provide in the early days with personal care items, clothing, hygiene, and PPE goods, and we will be there in the long term when the media spotlight has dimmed, months and years after the event with goods to help rebuild lives.
How Good360 Works
When disaster strikes, Good360 are ready to reach out to our extensive network of business partners for purposeful donations of the brand-new items most needed for disaster affected communities.
Good360 matches the right goods to the right people when they are needed most, via our network of 3,000+ charities and disadvantaged schools. The Good360 model creates much greater impact than a business could have going direct to a single charity.
Our charity members then distribute these goods on the ground in their local communities. Charities and schools save time and money by getting the goods they need, when they need them most, allowing them to have a much greater impact in their communities.
The Six Stages of Disaster Recovery
Being prepared in advance helps mitigate the impact of a disaster on communities.
In the immediate aftermath, the greatest concern is for the protection of life and property.
This phase focuses on cleaning up and fixing the damage brought on by the disaster.
As survivors move beyond the recover phase, focus shifts to rebuilding homes and businesses etc.
As displaced families move back, they often need to replace most or all of their household goods.
While this is the recovery stage, survivors may still need items to help them get back to life as normal.
