McGrath Foundation National Charitywww.mcgrathfoundation.com.au The McGrath Foundation raises money to ensure every Australian family touched by breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, regardless of where they live or their financial situation. Breast care nurses are specialist registered nurses who act as patient advocates, and are able to co-ordinate nursing care to women experiencing breast cancer, their families, and their carers. To date, The McGrath Foundation has supported more than 25,000 Australian families by providing access to this crucial medical service at absolutely no cost to those who need it most.
The McGrath Foundation also works to improve awareness of breast cancer in the community, but particularly among young women in Australia.
Kiva International Charitywww.kiva.org Kiva is a non-profit organisation that provides micro-finance to groups and individuals across the globe in the hope of reducing poverty. Kiva members can make loans of $25 or more to those in the third-world wanting to raise a fixed amount of money for certain projects, be it buying a new cow for their herd, stock for a their village shop, or even paying for a year’s high school tuition. Whatever their project, your funds go towards making it happen and can change a whole village’s life!
The best bit? If the lendee manages to pay back the loan, your $25 can be re-loaned to another Kiva user in need.
