OUR 2019 CHARITY OF CHOICE…
The Leadership Circle is honoured to be involved with a small charity in Cessnock, north of Sydney, Australia called 'SoupzOn'. A charity that provides hot, home cooked meals to homeless individuals and families and those in immediate crisis. Miranda Dunn, Finance Manager for Asia Pacific has been involved with the charity over the past 12 months, donating her time preparing, cooking and serving meals for less fortunate individuals. As an organisation we support her initiative and sense of service.
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, The Leadership Circle Asia Pacific & North America will be donating 5% of all Profile sales to SoupzOn. Our contribution will provide an opportunity for SoupzOn to guarantee a hot, nourishing Christmas meal as well as secure future plans for a permanent location for their operations, as well as a strategic plan to help youth in crisis in the area. As a valued client, we thank you for your business.
As requested by our staff and some clients, we've also created an opportunity to contribute directly via a donation on GoFundMe.
Background: SoupzOn have been feeding people in the Cessnock area for over 4 years, people that have no fixed address or those in crisis. 3 nights a week the local park becomes a safe haven and welcome community group space. Resources mean they are only able to feed around 30 people each night, however on Christmas Day they expect well over 60 people. Any additional funds raised will support the charity moving forward, with a focus on finding a suitable permanent building to work from (they are still feeding people from the street) and addressing youth in crisis in their local area.
We are proud to be involved with this 'grass roots' charity.
