As a company we work very closely with organisations in the Charity and Not-For-Profit sector and have been inspired by the work that they do. That’s why in April 2015 we created Operation Give Back, a program designed to utilise our corporate position and status to Give Back to the community.

A different charity was chosen for each month of the year, all selected by our staff members to create our Operation Give Back Calendar 2015.

Each month, names of our staff are selected at random to be allocated as that month’s Charity Fundraising Team. This team are then responsible for creating and running various fundraising activities to raise money and awareness for that charity.

Operation Give Back has been a great way to Give Back to those in the community that are less fortunate than us. We realised that we are a group of people that are lucky enough to be in a situation where we can all spare some extra cash each month to help support and improve others' lives. So we did it!

Not to mention the added bonus of taking part in fun events, enhancing the feeling of teamwork around the office and the joy that comes from helping others.

Activities for RUOK Day
Morning teas and a lot of conversation to support RUOK? and raise awareness about suicide in Australia

We look forward to another great year of fundraising in 2016. Stay tuned for our Operation Give Back video coming soon which highlights our activities from 2015. You can also follow our progress in 2016 on our social media sites and help us raise awareness.
