“65 Roses” sounds like cystic fibrosis. Our “65 Roses” story dates back to 1965, when an observant 4-year-old, hearing the name of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as "65 Roses." Today, “65 Roses” helps us create awareness and make a difference for families in their fight with cystic fibrosis.

Path of Hope offers assistance and resources to women vulnerable to, or currently experiencing, family violence.
- Charity:Family,Fundraising,Information & Referral,Local Community
Since its 2012 inception, the Path of Hope Foundation has gained momentum and has become a Major Financial Foundation, Public Ancillary Fund (PuAF) with approved fundraising licenses in all states and territories in Australia. The Path of Hope Foundation is an international project through the Joint Venuture between Rotary and The Salvation Army; two internationally recognised not-for-profit organisations fighting to end domestic violence globally. Rotary International is the fund and volunteer raising arm and The Salvation Army is the operating arm.
Our vision is to break the cycle of family and domestic violence by empowering women and enabling them to create positive new pathways. This will lead to women having a greater likelihood of raising their children away from domestic violence enhancing the chance for their children to break the destructive cycle in their lives.
Our mission is to provide resources and assistance to women who are vulnerable to, or currently experiencing domestic violence. By providing women with support and guidance, they can become more independent, thereby breaking the cycle of domestic violence. We seek to assist women who are currently experiencing domestic violence by empowering them to take appropriate action and measures to ensure an improved quality of life for themselves and their children.
Refuge at undisclosed location
The Path of Hope Foundation raises funds for The Salvation Army to provide immediate support and refuge for women and their children who are victims of domestic violence. Due to the safety of the women and children the address is not revealed. The Refuge extends support through a unique group of programs and services. It is aimed at assisting with reintegration into society after women have left the Refuge. These services provide an opportunity for women to build networks and connect with the community, thereby breaking the cycle of domestic violence so they, and their children, can have a brighter future and can contribute to the community. Education and role model examples by parents, need to illustrate, from kindergarten level, that violence is not a right of any family member.

Read Write Now has operated in Western Australia for over 40 years. The program trains and supports volunteer tutors to work one-to-one with adults who come from all walks of life and who want to improve their reading and writing skills.
- Some run their own businesses
- Some need additional skills for a promotion
- Some are unemployed
- Some are TAFE students needing help with courses
- Some are parents who want to read to their children, assist with homework or correspond with the school.
There should be no shame attached to problems with literacy, yet many people have suffered humiliation. Read Write Now provides a flexible learning environment where confidentiality is assured.
There are volunteers throughout the metropolitan area and in some regional centres throughout WA. If you would like to be a volunteer in this program or you know someone who would benefit from the assistance offered, call 1800 018 802 or check out the website at www.read-write-now.org

WESFARMERS AND THE COMMUNITY
World Diabetes Day is an annual event held worldwide on 14th November every year. Light up your front porch or workplace with a blue light to show your support for the 371 million people living with diabetes.
Thursday 14 November celebrates World Diabetes Day (WDD); an annual campaign, held on the same date every year and led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. The theme for this year's WDD is Diabetes Education and Prevention. For more information about the IDF's international campaign, click here, and for merchandise available through the IDF website, click here.
At a local level, you can show your support for your family and friends living with diabetes by lighting your front porch with a blue light on 14 November. (If you don't already have a blue light globe, they are widely available from all good light retailers, and are generally inexpensive). Diabetes WA will be showcasing your efforts to turn Perth blue on their social media pages, so please email your photos to [email protected]
It is critical that the impact diabetes has on the Western Australian community is continually highlighted, and initiatives such as lighting up buildings or your own home are simple but effective ways of drawing attention to diabetes and the fact that tens of thousands of people live with type 1 and type 2 diabetes every day.
Diabetes is our nation’s fastest growing chronic disease and unless action is taken now, it is expected to overtake heart disease and cancer to become the largest cause of disability and premature death in Australia.
Some good news is that type 2 diabetes can be prevented through positive lifestyle changes. In fact, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes can be reduced by up to 60% by maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active and following a healthy eating plan.
Diabetes is a condition that cannot be ignored, but sadly, there are many people within our community that have diabetes without knowing it.
In fact, it is estimated that for every diagnosed case of type 2 diabetes, there is another that goes undiagnosed and untreated. Diagnosis and appropriate management is paramount: research has shown that if people with diabetes can manage their diabetes well, the risks of complications are greatly reduced and may be either prevented or significantly delayed.
