It’s that time of year, so for this month, I thought I’d pick a few charities that are close to my heart, that could use some extra help right about now.

The Indigenous Literacy Fund

Every child should have access to books and the opportunity to read.ILF are a national charity, that aims to reduce the disadvantage experienced by children in remote Indigenous communities across Australia, by lifting literacy levels and instilling a lifelong love of reading.

Father Bob
The Father Bob Maguire Foundation was founded by, you guessed it, the incomparable Aussie legend Father Bob. If you haven’t heard of him, give him a Google, or watch the fantastic doco made about him from a few years ago, In Bob We Trust.

The foundation was started in 2003, and the mission is simple; to provide material, emotional and social support to whomever, whenever and wherever necessary.

Teddy’s Team / Dreamer’s Hen Rescue.
I fostered then adopted my two beautiful kittens from Teddy’s Team just recently. An side project of Dreamer’s Hen Rescue, which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes animals, predominantly chickens, from abattoirs and farms, Teddy’s Team focuses on rescuing cats and kittens, with a special emphasis on those with special needs.
Both of these initiatives are completely independent and, largely self-funded. On top of day-to-day expenses of looking after animals, many require considerable veterinary care, which is considerably expensive. They need your help.
Follow Teddy’s Team on Instagram.
Follow Dreamer’s Hen Rescue on Facebook.
Donate to both here.
