Thank you to everyone who supported hustle and heart!
Overwhelmed is an understatement to explain how we feel about everyone who joined forces with us.
Here is an snapshot on how we were able to contribute to families in need this Christmas.
Gracias x 1000000 !! from the depths of me… Jess
HUSTLING WITH HEART FOR THE BENEVOLENT SOCIETY
The hustle & heart project, is about hustling with heart, as one, to give back, as one.
This Christmas, some amazing hustlers with heart have come together as one, to not only donate physical products but also donate store credits to raise funds. The funds raised will be used to purchase vouchers for children and their families, to enjoy some time together over the Christmas holidays, such as at the cinema, bowling, indoor play centres and other fun filled activities…. after all, we all know how hard it can be to entertain kids over the school break.
This year ALL donations and vouchers will be donated to The Benevolent Society, and will be distributed within the Child & Family Services Department.
The Benevolent Society is Australia’s oldest charitable organization at the heart of social justice and change. The vision statement is ‘A just society where all Australians can live their best life’ which is upheld through array of programs delivered by the Benevolent Society. From social resource, policy and advocacy to disability, aged care and child protection.
Child and Family Services- South Western Sydney provide a tertiary child protection service to families at high risk of statutory intervention. Most families we work with manage the immediate and long lasting effects of domestic violence, homelessness, debilitating mental health issues, substance misuse and child abuse. Practitioners work with families intensively over a 12 month period to minimise the risks, keeping children safely at home with their families and reducing the number of children entering the foster care system.
This is our first year, but definitely not the last.
