“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.
- Charity:Family,Fundraising,Local Community,Mental Health
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.

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.

Path of Hope offers assistance and resources to women vulnerable to, or currently experiencing, family violence.
- Charity:Fundraising,Information & Referral,Local Community,Family
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.

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.
