Here’s just a sample … of what the Foundation supports:
Utilising Art Unions (raffles) with special car prizes provided by Eye Candy Motorsports, and support with OneRaise and FlashMarket; the Foundation has established a solid fundraising pillar over a few short years.
Although this is only one of our fundraising “pillars” … it has been a powerful nation-wide driver to bring awareness to the plight of Australia’s rural communities suffering drought, debt, lack of resources, medical, education and many other needs.
As of January 2021, the Foundation had completed its 25th Art Union with Eye Candy Motorsport’s vehicles – and the Board gives them a big thank you. Thank you for the 25 cars and over $2,000,000 worth of prizes to the 54 lucky winners, but more importantly a big thank you for the $5.23 million that they have raised for charitable causes.
With that money the Foundation has been able to assist a number of charity partners as they have rolled out a range of programs for people in need across rural Australia including:
A $300,000 spend on feedstock for farmers affected by drought, floods, and fires in partnership with Rotary Clubs
Over $1,000,000 donated to mental and physical health support programs in partnership with Walk N Talk and Active Farmers, Happiness Co, Are You Bogged Mate and Human Excellence Project
Support for individuals and families facing challenges of Breast Cancer through donation of $500,000 to OTIS Foundation
Support for ex-defence force personnel through donations of $300,000 to Wounded Heroes and Connected By
$150,000 donation of equipment to BlazeAid to assist volunteers to help farmers adversely impacted by bushfires
$40,000 donation to Warriors for Wildlife program for wildlife and animal shelters
Donation of $70,000 to Danny Green's Stop the Cowards Punch online education program
Donation of $80,000 to Eat it Up to provide food for schools throughout Australia
$160,000 to a number of smaller community run programs through rural Australia.
