Today is #GivingTuesday but we want to say thank you!


Today is #GivingTuesday but we want to say thank you!You might have heard that today is #GivingTuesday - so we wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to those who have given in the past; our wonderful supporters, volunteers, donors and staff.

To show our appreciation we've decided to celebrate today as #ThankfulTuesday. Thanks to you all we've been able to make a huge difference in the lives of many people living with a disability.

Here's just a few ways you've helped over the past year:

  • Thanks to volunteers donating their valuable time we were able to provide residents at our Williamstown house with a new garden to enjoy and relax in.
  • Today is Giving TuesdayOur generous donors have ensured people with a disability receive the support that they need to undertake everyday tasks we often take for granted, such as showering and eating.
  • Through payroll deductions, employees at Independence Australia have purchased a barbeque so residents at one of our houses can spend time relaxing with each other as well as with their family and friends.
  • And thanks to our corporate supporters, programs such as SpinChat and counselling have continued to receive crucial funding, allowing us to expand each program's reach across Victoria to more young people at risk.

So to celebrate #ThankfulTuesday please join us over on Facebook and Twitter to share what you are thankful for.

PS We will be at Federation Square tomorrow from 10am to celebrate International Day of People with Disability. It's the Disability Sport & Recreation Festival so make sure you pop down and say hello!
