As we are based in Australia, we support Australian charities and causes. But we are not limited to them and realize that we also have friends/members in other countries, so we are happy to show our support there as well.
Pink Ribbon Breakfasts are a fun way to raise money for breast cancer research while getting together with family and friends.
What better way to spend a morning than chatting with your friends over a long, delicious breakfast? Money can be raised through gold coin donations, food sales, raffles and auctions, you name it! All hosts will receive a Host Information Booklet with fundraising ideas, yummy recipes and suggestions to make your breakfast a fabulous success.
Sami Lukis has lent her support as the face of Pink Ribbon Breakfast 2010 and stars in our campaign along with her aunt and five other inspirational breast cancer survivors.
Keep an eye out for the TV spot showing on Foxtel’s W channel from mid-August! Registrations open now and Breakfasts can be held throughout September and October.

PetRescue may be small, but with your help we are achieving big things!
PetRescue is a not-for-profit organisation that finds new homes for lost and abandoned pets. We believe every homeless pet deserves the chance to find a new loving family, but with rescue groups across the country struggling to feed and care for animals, many pets miss out on homes simply because nobody knows they are available.
Through our rehoming programs, PetRescue makes it easy for potential adopters to find and save a rescue pet. Our website is the largest online, searchable directory of rescue pets in Australia, making it a hub for rescue groups, pet lovers and friends like you.
More than 25,000 pets find homes each year thanks to their PetRescue listings.
But still over twenty times that number are killed each year in Australia because homes can’t be found for them.
You can help rescue groups keep saving pets by making a donation to PetRescue. Your support gives small and independent rescue groups a high level of exposure to potential adopters, helps raise awareness of the benefits of rescue pet adoption and helps homeless and abandoned pets find the forever families of their dreams.
And with thousands of pets available for adoption every day, PetRescue gives you the best chance of finding your new best friend.
Mission: To save the life of every adoptable animal in our community through education,
adoption and spay/neuter programs.
Vision: To lay the foundation for a no-kill nation.
The St. Tammany Humane Society has been serving St. Tammany parish as the only non-profit, non-governmental
animal sheltering and welfare organization for more than 55 years. Our doors opened to the community’s neglected, abandoned and abused pets in 1953 by Holly Frederick Reynolds in memory of her cocker spaniel, Yankee Doodle Dandy, because she truly wanted to make a difference in the lives of these orphaned companions. Today, the mission is the same, but we have several new programs and services in place to do just this-to give these animals a new leash on life; we just need the support of our community to continue the mission and realize our vision.
We truly would not be here without you!
The National Wildlife Federation is America’s largest conservation organization. We work with more than 4 million members, partners and supporters in communities across the country to protect and restore wildlife habitat, confront global warming and connect with nature.
The mission of the Rainforest Foundation is to support indigenous and traditional people of the world’s rainforests in their efforts to protect their environment and fulfill their rights by assisting them in:
- Securing and controlling the natural resources necessary for their long term well being and managing these resources in ways which do not harm their environment, violate their culture or compromise their future; and
- Developing the means to protect their individual and collective rights and to obtain, shape and control basic services from the state.
The Rainforest Foundation was one of the first organizations to focus on the vital link between preserving rainforests and supporting the rights of indigenous and traditional peoples who call the rainforests home and have protected them for millennia. The “rights-based forestry” approach sets the nature of the Rainforest Foundations’ work apart from most other rainforest and environmental organizations.
Rainforest Foundation history
In 1989, Sting and Trudie Styler founded The Rainforest Foundation in response to a direct request for help from a Kayapo Indian leader in Brazil who was seeking to protect his peoples’ land and culture.The organization’s initial project led to a role coordinating the first ever privately funded demarcation of Indian land in the region. Over the next seven years the Rainforest Foundation grew into a small network of 4 independent organizations in the US,the UK and Norway,working collectively in a dozen countries around the globe.
Since its founding, the Rainforest Foundation US has implemented innovative projects in partnership with indigenous groups and grassroots organizations in Latin America. Our staff works with partner organizations in the rainforest to help indigenous communities gain fundamental human rights, map their territories and file claims for land title, lobby for enforcement of laws and policy reforms,develop local sustainable development initiatives and monitor and manage natural resources.
