In my last post I discussed the importance of charities in the Australian market. A new piece of research on the Australian charity and not-for-profit sector that I have championed within Chaos Media was released this week.
It is both humbling and gratifying when the media pick up on your work and bring it into the public arena. I am incredibly thankful to so many of the news media that I have spoken to over the past week.
If you are interested in learning more you will find myself, headspace spokesperson, Michael Bennett and ABC's 702 Morning Show host Wendy Harmer discuss the research here.
I have also had the pleasure of talking to SBS Filipino's Maridel Martinez on the topic, particularly around the difference between Australian born Australians and New Australians. You can catch that discussion here.
The lovely team at Queensland's 101.5 FM also joined in on the conversation.
There have been many other journalists and radio host's across Australia that I have had the great fortune to talk to about this research. I just wanted to publicly say thank you. The response has been overwhelming!
The release was timed coincide with Give Now Week (28th November - 4th December). Give Now Week is a timely reminder that whilst Christmas is a wonderful time for many it does place an enormous amount of pressure on some, either financially or emotionally. Many charities are not government funded in any way and it is important for Australians to dig deep during this time of the year. If you do want take a look at the release you will find it here.
