A Blooming Great Cause for Cystic Fibrosis WA

“65 Roses” sounds like cystic fibrosis and this campaign helps us create awareness and make a difference for families in their fight with cystic fibrosis.

Details

Description

On Friday 26 May, hundreds of volunteers and businesses across Western Australia are banding together to sell 13,500 long stemmed roses to raise much needed money to provide care to children and young adults living with CF. The proceeds will also go towards fund world class research right here in WA.

Roses for 65 Roses Day will be sold by CFWA volunteers at $5 per stem, or $50 for 12 roses.

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.

Path of Hope Foundation

Path of Hope offers assistance and resources to women vulnerable to, or currently experiencing, family violence.

  • Charity:Fundraising,Information & Referral,Local Community,Family
  • Type:Charity

Details

Description

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

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

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 Adult Literacy Program

46% of the adult Australian population has problems with everyday functional literacy. If you can read this, perhaps you can help an adult to read.

  • Charity:Employment & Training,Family,Local Community,Aboriginal,Education & Training
  • Type:Charity

Details

Description

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
