Be Uplifted is a unique boutique breast cancer charity that seeks to improve the lives of women, men and their families experiencing difficulty or disadvantage as a consequence of breast cancer such as poverty, illness or such. We provide funds enabling them to access services, programs, pay bills and receive goods or assistance to alleviate that difficulty or disadvantage.
We receive our recipients from North West Hospital, Holy Spirit Hospital, Redcliffe Hospital and Caboolture Private Hospital.
Be Uplifted Inc. came into existence as a consequence of two friends walking their own breast cancer journeys. The impact of the financial costs of the journey of one of the women, a solo mum, prompted the other to organise fundraisers to assist her meet the unplanned and unexpected costs her journey involved.
As time progressed Be Uplifted Inc. was formed and its focus is ‘the costs of breast cancer’. WE ARE ABOUT PEOPLE NOT RESEARCH.
One in three women will be diagnosed with cancer before they reach the age of eighty-five, the highest percentage of those women will suffer breast cancer. In recent years there have been a number of charities formed connected to breast cancer and many companies contribute to their nation-wide appeals. However the majority of these groups focus on research or patient care with minimal assistance being given towards the ‘costs’ encountered. More

A relatively new organisation, Books for Comfort will also be aiming to create comfortable and safe reading corners within Community organisations such as DV Contact Centres and various Community Centres.

Bottle for Botol is a social enterprise located in Australia and Indonesia that partners students in both countries to work towards creating a generational change against single-use plastics. Through our school-based program, students in Australia learn about sustainability and plastic waste, cultural understanding and social enterprise. They sell our student-designed stainless steel water bottles to their local communities, and for every one sold, we donate a botol to a student in their partner school in Indonesia to help them switch from purchasing single-use plastic aqua cups to refillable water bottles and gallon dispensers at the school canteen. Indonesian students also receive an eight-week environmental education program and are engaged in a cross-cultural dialogue with their Australian partner school students. Our goal is to eliminate single-use plastics in each of our participating Indonesian schools and beyond, significantly reducing the amount of plastic waste entering our oceans. More

Can Assist is a grass roots, community based charity dedicated to supporting country NSW people and their families affected by cancer. Due to travel and accommodation expenses, it can easily cost a country family affected by cancer up to five times more than a city family just to access treatment. The reality is that many country mums and dads simply can’t afford treatment, let alone the weeks spent away from their family and work.
Our vision is that every country community, family and individual should have equitable access to cancer care and support services.
We provide financial assistance & accommodation to bridge the gap between city and country cancer patients, giving people with cancer in rural, regional and non-metropolitan areas in NSW the opportunity to have fair and equitable access to cancer care and support services.
Through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers across NSW and the generosity of individuals and communities, Can Assist is able to make a real difference to country families affected by cancer.
Thank you for your support! More

Having a baby is the time in a woman's life when she is most likely to develop emotional and mental health problems. Up to one in ten women experience depression in pregnancy and this increases to one in seven after having a baby. Rates of anxiety are even higher. These conditions are serious. Postnatal depression is the leading cause of maternal death (through suicide) and disability. These impacts are compounded by high expectations and stigma. COPE research shows that currently 74% of women seeking with postnatal depression or anxiety do not seek help - until they reach the point that they can no longer cope.
COPE is dedicated to reducing these debilitating impacts. At each stage of the journey to becoming a parent - from conception, through pregnancy, birth and the first year, COPE supports women, men and families by ensuring that they have access to the latest, high quality information and support. Through our extensive website, resources, research and innovative screening approaches, COPE informs and empowers women and families at this vulnerable time, whilst also ensuring that health professionals have access to the latest high quality research, training and information.

The name of our foundation sums it up.

We do this in the hopes of one day living in a world free from MND.

In this regards, we are passionate about providing vital equipment and services to these patients in order that they may maintain independence, dignity, and an improved quality of life.
To Make Aware:
The foundation will continue to push MND into the spotlight in the hopes that by increasing the public profile of Motor Neurone Disease within the Australian and wider communities, governments and pharmaceutical companies will take up the fight and join us in a quest for viable treatments, and an ultimate cure. “Without You We Won’t Find A Cure!” More

Fresh Start Rescue is a committed group of animal lovers who hope to make a real change in the number of companion animals put to sleep in pounds and shelters across the state each year.
We are based in Brisbane, Queensland but have a network of foster families and volunteers across the state's south east, including the Northern and Southern suburbs of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich and the Lockyer Valley.
We do not have a shelter facility. All of our pets live in loving foster homes while they wait to be adopted. Once we accept a dog or cat into foster care, we keep them for as long as it takes to find that perfect forever home. We don't give up!
Our organisation is 100% volunteer powered! We do not receive any government funding or big business sponsorship.
Our greatest expense is veterinary fees, which are often thousands of dollars each month. We manage to pay our generous veterinary practices with money raised from fundraising events, donations and the adoption fees paid for our animals. After those vet costs are paid, there is very little profit left from the sale of each pet, if any, and many that have had pre-existing medical needs are sold at a large loss. More
