We've Partnered With i=Change So Every Online Purchase Gives Back

We're thrilled to announce a new partnership with i=change, allowing you to donate a dollar amount from any sale on our online store to a vital NGO, supporting the most vulnerable members of our community.

i=change has a particular focus on the empowerment of women & girls, so it feels good to make this announcement on International Women's Day.

Read on to discover the three organisations who we have chosen to support with our donations. We felt it was important to support local, Australian based organisations, who seek to empower with education and provide safety from harm. The final decision rests with you, the consumer, who can select one charity to allocate your donation to.

For the next three days (March 8-10, 2023) we're taking part in Shop for Change, an impact-focused online shopping event, where we will triple our commitment by giving back $3 from every sale (usually a $1 donation).

Head to our website, make a purchase and let your donation equal change.

1. Empower with literacy through the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation is transforming lives through community-driven, ground-breaking and best practice literacy programs. Working in English and Indigenous First Languages, ALNF is committed to creating sustainable, long-term change.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children continue to fall through the cracks of our education system, trapping them in a cycle of vulnerability and illiteracy. This devastating gap is particularly evident in remote Indigenous communities, where the writing abilities of year 9 students are at year 1 level. If not addressed in the early years, this issue continues into adulthood, where in remote areas, up to 70% of Aboriginal adults are ‘functionally illiterate’. This is a national tragedy.

Just $12 in donations can pay for a day of specialised literacy support in an Indigenous community.

2. Protect a woman with Women's Community Shelters
During these times of economic challenges, Women's Community Shelters is experiencing a 25% increase in inquiries for safe accommodation for women and children, who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. Existing services are at full capacity, with more than 50% of women seeking shelter turned away due to a lack of beds. 

Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks. Women’s Community Shelters is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.

$50 is enough to provide a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for a night.

3. Empower migrants with job skills through The Social Studio
Many young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds face significant barriers to accessing education and employment including: interrupted or lack of schooling, a scarcity of work experience opportunities, limited English and a lack of support networks in Australia.

The Social Studio breaks down these barriers by providing a safe, supportive and creative environment for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to gain work experience and qualifications, express their creativity, gain industry contacts, meet new friends and build their confidence as they create a new life in Australia.

Founded right here in Melbourne, we love that we can actively support this vibrant organisation which empowers our local community. A $25 donation will provide one hour of dedicated employment and education pathways for one young person.
