Here at Beginning Boutique, we’re always looking for opportunities to be kind, help others, and give back. We’re proud to share our charity endeavours with you.
We’re regulars at Splendour In The Grass, and in 2018, we held a charity donation jar in our stall. Here, punters could donate a gold coin to one of three charities. Each of the following charities received AU$242.93 with the help of those festival goers:
- Kids Helpline
- Beyond Blue
- RSPCA Queensland
2018 was a tough year for Australian rural communities and farmers, facing a harsh drought that was drastically affecting the livelihoods of thousands all over the country. We made a call out on our social media to help us share their message, and inform others of how they could help. In doing so, we pledged to donate to Rural Aid for every share or like. Thanks to our followers on social media, we were able to donate AU$14,540. Rural Aid provides support to farmers and rural communities in times of natural disaster as well as supporting the sustainability of the agricultural sector.
Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon Appeal
The Pink Ribbon Appeal provides vital support, research and prevention programs for breast and gynaecological cancers in Australia. And, it was something we decided to highlight after two of our daring bikini bottom designs went viral! While everyone was focused on what the bikini wasn’t covering, we decided to focus on what we could cover - and pledged to donate 10% of proceeds from the bikini bottoms to the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Who run the world? Girls! For International Women’s Day 2019, we designed 2 exclusive tees and launched a Future Females campaign, with 100% of proceeds are also being donated to the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Once again, we were highlighting women’s health and some of the badass females we know!
Our total contribution to the Pink Ribbon Appeal is AU$10,200.
The Endeavour Foundation supports people with an intellectual disability to live, learn, work and flourish according to their own interests and priorities. So far this year, we have been honoured to have donated stock to the value of $46,648.84 to the organisation.
And there’s more to come!
