Giving Back to Communities with Life of Colour

Giving Back to Communities with Life of Colour

Giving back to our local and wider community gives an opportunity for us to familiarize and connect to the world around us where we gain a unique sense of purpose- without donations some of these important organisations would not to be able provide services to communities that need it the most.

Here are a few places of business that Life of Colour has contributed and outreached with donations.

 

Greenacres Disability Services- The Outsider artist

Greenacres was established in 1953 and relies on contributions from the community to provide employment and support for individuals with disabilities. Life of Colour donated art supplies to their wonderful program "The Outsider Artist", an artistic outlet class for participants to get creative.

 

The Flower Project 

 

Our Life of Colour Flower Project workshops are inspired by Ayla (8) who during her Chemotherapy Treatment decided to do a new flower each week with her art teacher. 10% of the cost of the workshop will be donated to Sydney Children's hospital in her name.

Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation

Jennifer Ebsworth from Brewarrina pictured above contributed by judging our Naidoc art competition in 2021.

Jennifer co-founded the Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation, an award winning community support centre for Aboriginal people in Western Sydney that provides a range of community services as well as a place of healing, where Aboriginal people connect with culture and have a strong sense of belonging. Life of Colour was honoured to be able to make a small contribution to the corporation.

 

RUOK 2022 "Everything Yellow" Collaborative Art Session

"R U OK? Day is a National day of Action, marked on the second Thursday of September each year"

The Life of Colour Facebook group members came together in 2022 to create something truly unique and special. We created a poster from the art that was collaborated together during a Sunflower workshop, both a cash donation and proceedings from the amazing poster that we put together went to the meaningful RUOK organisation. EVERY day is the day to start a conversation with those we care about and ask, 'are you OK?.

Preschool and School Contributions

Every year there are a number of schools, preschools and educational businesses that reach out to Life of Colour for donations and we love to be able to connect with these establishments to give them art supplies that they can use in their classrooms or that they can use to raise much needed money for other purposes.

Primary schools like St Bernadettes and New Lambton South Public School and Rural centres like Kempsey Dalaigur Scribbly Gum and Bowraville Community Preschool's benefitted from contributions in 2023.

Masifundisane Creche in Folweni

Masifundisane Creche in Folweni, serves a disadvantaged community and has between 25 and 35 children per year, ranging from 6 months to 5 years old. It has become the centre of the community and all the children spend time there at some point during the day. The children are also given 2 meals per day and would ordinarily not have this at home. Nexus has donated close to R1 million to date, and they have had a few generous corporate donations - including fromLife of Colour for sponsorship of their end of year graduation party.

More support to build 2 new classrooms and improve the facilities is still needed. If you, or anyone you know, would like to support this project, please reach out. 

Lalela in South Africa

Life of Colour chose to make an end of year charity donation in 2020 to LALELA.org. This charity is very close Jodi's heart as it is in her home country of South Africa.

Now more than ever our friends there need any help they can get, whether it is basic food and necessities or help with art, education and other activities to enrich their lives. 

 

Weave Kool Kids

Weave Kool Kids aims to Facilitate a safe and welcoming space for women and children. Donations from companies such as Life of Colour to Weave are used to provide specialist support such as improving access to opportunities, poverty, rehabilitation, tailored support away from the criminal justice system, operations to assist tutoring for drivers licence and many more holistic support opportunities.

Please support them by making a donation. Every contribution counts.

Sanctuary Housing- Women's Shelters in Sydney for Crisis Accommodation

Sanctuary Housing Womens is a not-for-profit which supports women in crisis accommodation who are escaping domestic violence.

Life of Colour feels especially privileged to have been able to give donations of products for the Sanctuary Housing Womens residents in their shelter. Providing resources and activities for mums and kids to do when arriving and staying there means they are able to take time out of their extremely stressful situation.

The Spoonie Society

The Spoonie Society is a Melbourne based business that sells pain management aids to support the chronic illness community. In 2023 they reached out to Life of Colour to contribute a donation to an event to raise money for Jeans for Genes organisation making ground-breaking research into birth defects, stem cells, and supercharging the gene therapy programs so they can bring more cures to Australian children, faster.⁠

 

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation

Life of Colour is humbled to be able to donate to such a worthy cause such as the Sydney Children's Hospital, cash donations are accepted to go towards purchases for new equipment, training and education, groundbreaking research, live saving transport, building state-of-the-art facilities or more.

Having fun collaborations and making prize donations such as the art competition in 2023 gives the children a chance to take their minds off their current realities and stressful situations.

 

It is wonderful to be part of the Australian culture to lend a helping hand wherever it is possible, if you have a foundation or know of a charity that could use some assistance please reach out so we can work together to make a difference.
