Our Christmas Gift...
Instead of sending standard Christmas cards & treats this year, we decided to give a gift of goodness to a chosen charity, on behalf of team goodness and our customers. This year, we chose an innovative social enterprise called Good Return, for our Christmas gift donation.
Good Return was established by independent not-for-profit agency, World Education Australia, to address poverty issues in the Asia Pacific region. This social enterprise, specialises in microfinance, financial literacy and livelihood development programs. Donations are entered into their loan system to assist individuals in starting or expanding their small businesses.
By the loans into their business, their income increases, providing further benefits to the individual, their families and communities. This ensures long-term benefits to families and their communities!
Good Return "We empower individuals, families and communities to build their own capacity, helping to build independence and release human potential."
