What is Corporate Social Responsibility? Although this sounds like a very heavy term, its main definition, simply put, is how a business or organisation plays a role in helping those in need in any way they can.
We hear it all the time from big corporations. It can be in a form of short or long-term partnerships, food banks, donation drives and outreach programs.
Last October, we joined a raffle organised by Audi Australia where the proceeds went to various organisations. Although this initiative didn’t directly come from us, it’s our very small way of contributing to the community. We’re grateful for avenues like this that allow us to help different communities that need support.
We’d also like to use this platform to help promote the below organisations that Audi’s raffle program supported:
Humpty Dumpty Foundation – A children’s charity that has been providing essential and often life-saving medical equipment for sick and injured children in Paediatric Wards, Neonatal Units, Maternity and Emergency Departments in hospitals across Australia.
Camp Quality – Provides programs and activities that specifically support children aged up to 15 years, who are dealing with their own cancer diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum, dad or carer.
Charlie Teo Foundation – A registered Australian charity funding brain cancer research.
Reach Out.com – Is the most accessed online mental health service for young people and their parents in Australia.
R U OK? – Is a harm prevention charity that encourages people to stay connected and have conversations that can help others through difficult times in their lives.
Country Education Foundation of Australia – Their advocacy is the further education, career, and personal development of rural and regional youth, through community-based encouragement and financial assistance.
The Smith Family – An independent children’s charity helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
Disclaimer: We are not associated with these organisations; we just want to freely promote these communities to encourage more people to help in any way they can.
