Charities: blegging for more advice

Peach Home Loans gives part of its commission each year for each of its borrowers. Last year we gave money to an appeal for African Women as I know one of the people involved.  We’re likely to do the same again this year, but we’re also sending out cards and one can nominate part of the cost of the card to go to charity.

They don’t include that charity. This is what they do include.  Which should we nominate and why?

Please can I make an unashamed plug for the Camcare Charity Card and Gift Shop at 19 Fairholm Grove, Camberwell Vic (behind the Woolworths Supermarket at Camberwell Junction). All profits on the cards and gifts go to Camcare and 42 other charities and the shop is staffed by volunteers.

Mental health always seems to get the worst deal. Cancers get pretty well looked after. Ditto for heart disease. Helping troubled kids is also a priority I think. Fred Hollow F does great stuff too. So the FRF or the SRI (which really catches mental health and troubled youth). Only thing is I don’t know whether the SRI is an effective charity.

There are some great causes up there – I’m sure whichever one you pick will do some great work with your help. I would like to suggest you pick Autism Spectrum Australia (I have to admit I work for them). Its a fantastic organisation that works with over 8,000 people with autism and their families to build skills and confidence. We believe that people with autism have the right to lead rich and fulfilling lives and we work to equip them to do that. One in 110 people have autism which means right now over 190,000 Australians are on the autism spectrum. We’re the largest not-for-profit provider of autism specific services in this country but we know there is still much more we could be doing. We would love the support of Peach Home Loans.
