The Smith Family

In Australia today, 1 in 10 Australian children are living in jobless families, where even life's basics are hard to come by. When families are experiencing financial disadvantage, children can fall behind with their learning leaving them more vulnerable to experiencing hardship themselves later in the life. 

As Australia’s largest national education-oriented charity, The Smith Family supports disadvantaged Australian children to participate fully in their education, giving them the best chance at breaking the cycle of disadvantage. Their learning support and mentoring programs help children in need to fit in at school, keep up with their peers, and build aspirations for a better future for themselves.

Mobile Phone Recycling for MND

Motor Neurone Disease Association of Victoria is the only organisation focussed on supporting people in Victoria living with MND.   MND is a rapidly progressive neurological disease which causes the nerves controlling voluntary muscles to gradually fail, causing weakness, wasting and paralysis. MND varies from person to person. MND is always terminal, usually within 3-5 years, there is no remission and no active treatment.  Last year the Association supported 441 people living with MND, including the loan of disability aids and equipment at no cost to the person with MND. This is a critical area of need for people living with MND as the disease takes away their mobility and can result in social isolation.

For more information on the services provided by MND Victoria please visit our website



MNDAWA is a registered charity supporting people living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND), their carers and families throughout Western Australia. Motor neurone disease is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breath and swallow undergo degeneration and die. At present there is no known cause and therefore no known cure for this terrible terminal disease. As a small not for profit association we rely heavily on fundraising to ensure that we can provide our members with the services that they require, as well as funds for research to find a cause and one day a cure for MND.

For more information on the services that the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Western Australia provide please visit:

Mobile Phone Recycling for Charity - Jane Goodall

One of the biggest threats to chimpanzees and other Great Apes is the illegal mining of coltan, a mineral used in many mobile phones. Mining results in the clearing of essential habitat and drives the bush meat trade, further exacerbating the decline of Great Ape populations.
