WHAT: 65 Roses Day
WHEN: 26th May, 2017
WHERE: Perth CBD and surrounds and throughout regional WA
WHY: To raise much needed funds for CF research to help find a cure
“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.

Whether you have two breasts, one breast, or both breasts removed, you can make the most incredible art with your body.
Shiona preparing a canvas….
Let's start off with a story...
In January 2009 I hosted a housewarming party in Stirling, inviting dear friends to bring their energy and love into my new home. Standing in the courtyard was a white canvas that guests were encouraged to paint to remind me of the great night we had.
Throughout the evening, friends offered splashes of colour, shapes, stripes, etc, but a cheeky friend however, caused quite a stir when she said she was going to paint the canvas with her breasts! We looked at her dumbfounded – we're all quite liberal minded, but we don't get our 'assets' out at the drop of a hat, so we watched intently to see how she was going to achieve such a task.
With great gustso, she whipped off her top, plonked some paint on her breasts and then pressed herself up against the canvas. We all held our breath as she peeled herself off to reveal two large circular imprints that looked like to two big happy eyes!
Everyone was impressed by this random act of freedom and creativity,
and it created quite a buzz in for the rest of the evening.
For quite some time after, our close-knit group would talk about how fun and liberating it must have been to paint with breasts rather than a brush, so I made the suggestion that we all get together for a workshop and BYO our own canvas and paints and do some 'breast art.' This was met met with inspired smiles and nodding of heads at this which spurred on my next idea: "How about we sell the breast art we create and give proceeds to a breast cancer charity?" The crew responded with: "YEAH, LET'S DO THAT!" And so Breastique Art was born.
Many of us who brainstormed the Breastique Art concept could relate to breast cancer on a very personal level. We had all known someone who had died from breast cancer or who were receiving treatment for it, and many of us had already experienced the fear and dread of having a breast lump examined.
For me on a personal level, my I felt a real sense of loss when my Aunt Marion died of breast cancer. 'Mazz', as I used to call her, was a vibrant, cheeky lady who always saw the bright side of life. She never cared if she looked silly while enjoying herself, she just wanted to create a fun, dynamic, space wherever she went. Even during her last days, she talked about all the things she was grateful for and continued to focus on the positives in her life.
Breastique Art reveals my Aunt Mazz's attitude toward living by highlighting the fun and creativity of life, not caring about looking silly, but honouring what we've lost while celebrating what we still have.
Our connection to art recognises that art is often unique: no two pieces of art are the same, just like our breasts. Breasts are all different shapes and sizes and we are all magnificent in our uniqueness.

The WA Museum Foundation is the fundraising partner of the WA Museum
- Type:DGR 1 Status
- Charity:Fundraising,Local Community
The foundation for our future
The best structures are built on strong foundations. The Foundation for the WA Museum believes that museums should spark a love of learning in the next generation. They should nurture a fascination with the past, an understanding of the present, and a passion for the future – and inspire us in unexpected ways. Importantly, they should influence and motivate young people to investigate the areas of science, technology, the arts and mathematics in the world around them.
The Foundation for the WA Museum has been committed to securing the future of our state heritage since 1995. Our role is to cultivate and develop relationships with individuals, organisations, and community groups who understand the critical role that museums play in society to create a thriving WA Museum. We assist in delivering engaging community and educational programs, support ground-breaking scientific research and discovery, source funding for exhibitions, and acquire new items for our state collection, beyond the State Government’s funding
A New Museum for WA
Opening in 2020, the highly anticipated New Museum for WA will be a source of pride for the community of Western Australia and a fitting gateway to our extraordinary state.
It will provide the perfect introduction to WA’s landscapes, biodiversity, culture, and geological heritage. This is an important time in our history, signifying a shift in the cultural landscape for the people of WA – and this is only the beginning.
The Discovery Endowment Fund
The Discovery Endowment Fund has been established by the Foundation for the WA Museum to unleash the potential of the New Museum for WA. With a $35M fundraising target, our mission is to help create world-class museum facilities, and to sustain and build on the excitement around the New Museum well beyond 2020. With your help, the Endowment Fund – like those for many of the world’s greatest museums – will provide the secure source of income necessary for our future.

We are the longest running organisation of our kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
As WA’s main community based GLBT service provider our main focus is on providing essential services to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities, including our peer counselling phone line and social support groups. We also offer a number of training options for the general community, ranging from one-hour personal perspectives talks to half- and full-day workplace training in diverse sexuality and gender. We also have a successful history of running funded projects, often in partnership with other community groups.
Gay and Lesbian Community Services of WA (Inc.) is a non-profit organisation which aims to promote the wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer and other sexuality, sex and gender diverse people in Western Australia.
GLCS was established in 1974 as the Homosexual Counselling and Information Service of WA. In 1984 the name was changed to the Gay Counselling Service of WA and the organisation became an incorporated body. In keeping with worldwide trends to recognise the contribution and needs of women in the community, the name of the service was changed in 1990 to the Gay and Lesbian Counselling Service of WA (Inc). In 1999 the name was changed again to the Gay and Lesbian Community Services of WA (Inc) to reflect the wider range of services that GLCS provides. We are the oldest service of our kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
GLCS receives some funding from the Health Department of WA. While this money is much appreciated and essential, it covers only our basic costs. Our ability to provide our essential services is dependent on the efforts of our volunteers and additional income from financial memberships, donations and fundraising.

Founded in 1968, Kidney Health Australia is a not for profit organization whose focus is to promote good kidney health through education, advocacy and research. Kidney Health Australia develops initiatives to save and improve the lives of Australians affected by kidney disease.
OUR MISSION, VISION AND VALUES
KIDNEY HEALTH AUSTRALIA - EDUCATION, ADVOCACY, RESEARCH AND SUPPORT
Kidney Health Australia was first incorporated on 9 August 1968 as a non-profit organisation which has served the kidney community of Australia for well over 40 years. Kidney Health Australia's mission, vision and values are at the core of how we conduct our business and form the foundation for our future direction.

Commitment to excellence
Commitment to ‘making a difference'
Kidney Health Australia is a not for profit organization whose focus is to improve kidney health outcomes leading to substantial improvements to the quality of life for people with kidney and urinary tract diseases, their families and carers, as well as developing initiatives that reduce the incidence of kidney disease in the Australian community.
Kidney Health Australia has given a long term commitment to families and children affected by kidney disease, but the biggest challenge remains for us to reach those two million Australians who do not know they have early kidney damage.
Fast Facts on CKD
Kidney disease has no warning signs which means that a person can lose up to 90% of their kidney function before they realise they are sick. It is for that reason that kidney disease is referred to as ‘the silent killer'. Kidney Health Australia works tirelessly to make a noise about this 'silent' disease' which claims many lives every day in Australia. Refer to Fast Facts on CKD for statistics.
Make A Difference WA aims to raise significant funds to improving the overall quality of life for disadvantaged youth across Western Australia
Make a Difference Foundation WA is delighted to announce its latest charity project for 2012, the Youth Mentor Scholarship Programme in support of disadvantaged youth in Western Australia.

The division of scholarship monies are to be decided upon assessment of the individual applicant requirements each year.
Applicants will need to show how funding made available by Make A Difference Foundation WA will help them on the path to realising their goals and is necessary to further their development and education in their specific area which may include academic, music, sport, dance, science, drama, community etc. The foundation will further this programme by endeavouring to provide leadership and mentorship by West Australians who have achieved their goals and success in their chosen field. Hopefully through the support from the foundation and the WA Corporate Community, we can help these young people to make their dreams come true and you never know we may have discovered the next Justin Langer or Jessica Gethin.

- 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.

SIDS for Kids WA is a community-based organisation and had our beginnings as a mutual support group for bereaved SIDS parents and families during the 1970s.
- Charity:Family,Fundraising,Mental Health
By 1979 this small self-help group had grown, and the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Foundation was incorporated.
At the same time the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support group WA (SANDS) had formed, and this group offered support to those families who had suffered the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death.
Both groups operated separately for several years, until in 2000 it was recognised that these two very special support organisations could benefit by merging, and so the SIDS Foundation and SANDS became SIDS and Kids WA.
SIDS and Kids WA is funded through the generosity of the Western Australian public. The two main sources of income are Red Nose Day product sales, and tax-deductible donations.
Interested in joining us?
We rely on a large number of volunteers, many of whom are bereaved parents, their families and friends. These volunteers carry out a variety of essential duties including Red Nose Day activities, family support, events, community education and office duties. We encourage you to visit our volunteer page enquire about our volunteering opportunities.
Partners & Supporters
We're grateful for the support of our partners and supporters who help fund our education and bereavement support programs and services and research into stillbirth and sudden infant death syndrome. Why not make a meaningful contribution to our community and become a SIDS and Kids WA partner or supporter?
