Each year Green Light Creative gives to charities that have affected our staff in some way. We hope that our contributions can help with research and support the people we love, as well as the greater community.
Fiona has donated to the Lung Foundation. This year has been challenging and difficult for one of our extended team members. We hope that by donating to the Lung Foundation, this is just one more way we can help make a difference.
Joanne has donated to Dreams2Live4. A visionary program that realises the dreams of patients living with Metastatic cancer, Dreams2Live4 have granted a wish for Joanne’s own father. She hopes that by donating, she can continue to support others and help create beautiful memories and happy moments in times that matter most.
Karley has donated to Beyond Blue. After a year that has seen staggering rates of anxiety and depression, Beyond Blue are doing the necessary work to provide the information and support needed to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health.
Nellie has donated to the Pyjama Foundation. Every child deserves to feel safe and secure, loved and wanted. She hopes that by donating, she can help children in foster care experience meaningful relationships with “Pyjama Angels” and improve their lives with learning, meaningful life skills, and confidence.
Rachel has donated to the Rett Syndrome Association of Australia. Seen almost exclusively in females, Rett syndrome is a genetic disorder in which the brain does not mature in the way it should. Rachel hopes that by donating, she can help enhance the quality of life for people with Rett syndrome and create a better future through research and raising awareness.
Sam has donated to the Animal Welfare League Queensland. In 2019/2020 their shelters cared for over 8,000 homeless animals, reunited 2,052 lost animals with their families and rehomed 5,878 animals providing them a second chance at life – one of which was Sam’s cat Humphrey!
John has donated to Motor Neuron Disease Australia. MND Australia works with a national network of State MND Associations to advocate, educate and raise awareness. Their goal is to empower Australians impacted by MND to live better for longer.
The Green Light Creative team celebrated the end of 2020 with a cooking class at the Golden Pig in Newstead. We swapped our high-vis vests for aprons and got dirty cooking up a Middle Eastern inspired feast. With a set menu of exquisite entrees to start us off, we got to cooking! We learnt new ways to cook up fresh produce, choice cuts of protein, fragrant spices, and lush herbs.
