URGENT HELP REQUIRED – DONATIONS NEEDED – PLEASE SHARE
We need your urgent help. Times are tough and we haven’t been spared. The calls keep on coming for help and we just don’t want to say no. COVID-19 has hit us hard but we need to be there for those that need us most. Our organisation has a large amount of funding requests to assist people living with a disability within our Tasmanian community. We currently have over $150,000 of equipment requests for people living in the North West Coast.
Covid-19 has made fundraising extremely difficult as we are unable to hold large public events. Tonight we’re asking for your help. We need to raise $20,000 in the very short term. This will help fund the rent on our warehouse which will do three amazing things.
Our warehouse will allow us to run a dance studio. All children (and adults) love to dance, be a part of a team and simply have fun.
Our dance space will give EVERY child the opportunity to be involved in something they love. We have a professional dance teacher ready and waiting, we just need the space... With the ramp access and disabled toilets, we envision the studio also being used to create many opportunities for ALL children and adults on the North West and beyond, including inclusive yoga classes, music therapy sessions and much more.
Our warehouse will allow us to house equipment.
A child or adult living with a physical disability can quickly outgrow their mobility equipment. Something that is in great condition and cost thousands of dollars can no longer be used by that person but it can certainly be life changing for someone else. Our organisation accepts donations of equipment, and with the guidance of Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists, it can then be gifted to another person in need. BUT we need a bigger storage space to ensure this program can continue successfully.
Our warehouse will be also be used as a fundraising tool to continue to raise money to ensure we are able to meet the needs of our community AND it will also create opportunities for our local artists, makers and members of the community to sell their quality items.
Once established we would like to offer work experience opportunities for people living with a disability. However, we can’t do this without you. Just $5 from each and every one of you would get us over the line. It’s just the cost of your next cup of coffee in the morning but one that will do something magical for a child with a disability.
