Let Them Know It's Christmas - Voting Now Closed
See our six shortlisted finalists in our 'Let Them Know It's Christmas' 2018 donation campaign. Voting has now closed, see our winners here.
Every night across Australia, 1-in-7 children go to bed afraid. Afraid of what they witnessed during the day, afraid that tomorrow will bring more pain and for some, afraid that in the darkness the monsters who take away their innocence will return. KidsXpress provides trauma-focused programs to help children, families and professionals transform that fear into a life full of hope and a future our children deserve.
With this funding, two children who are facing emotional trauma will be able to attend our Expressive Therapy program where they will be encouraged to not only explore their thoughts and feeling, but to find their own ways to cope with them. Not just for now, but from now on.
2. Delta Society
Each visit costs $990 with added transport costs, so we would like to request $3000-$3500 from Beaumont to support these visits and make a difference in someone's day. Our therapy dogs meet Australians all over the country and this Christmas Delta would like to make sure many experience the joy and power that our therapy dog teams bring.
3. Property Industry Foundation
4. The SHIFT Project
This work contributes to building financial independence and employability skills, and strengthens qualities such as commitment, consistency and delivering quality/timely work. If our grant is successful it will serve as part payment toward an industrial washing machine. Through a local fundraising initiative we have been able to secure $7,000, however we are $5,000 short of the overall cost of the machine.
5. Project Futures
Therefore, we propose the funding of 7 micro-finance businesses for women who are survivors and looking to be educated in a vocation, allowing them to run a successful business to support herself and her family. For $4550 we can fund 7 businesses. This will see each survivor receive 2-years of support in her chosen vacation... with choice essential in supporting her empowerment.
In the Project Futures’ ‘Let Them Know It’s Christmas 2018’ video published on our website and Youtube Channel, a photo of a woman sewing appeared at the 37 second mark. This photo was incorrectly included in the video as this lady is not and has not received funding or assistance from Project Futures or AFESIP. Beaumont People was not made aware of this error until after the ‘Let Them Know It’s Christmas 2018’ campaign ended. Beaumont People apologises to the woman concerned for any distress caused and to all those who viewed the video for any misunderstanding or confusion caused by this erroneous publication.
6. The Funding Network
A donation to The Funding Network (TFN) this Christmas will be a direct investment in non-profit capacity building in 2019 and beyond. With $5000 we can run a half-day 'Pitching Purpose' workshop with 10 leaders from 5 Australian non-profits that Beaumont People believe in and support.
