We love finding a match for the urgent needs of our registered charities in  #cbr ๐Ÿ’™

Will, one of our @givit_act champion volunteers stopped by @redcrossau_es_nswact last week to hand deliver a pre-loved laptop that was refurbished by our local IT legends SOLVit Network Support. 

Over the last 18 months the SOLVit crew has been working tirelessly to make sure pre-loved computers find their way into the hand of those who need the most. Recycling your IT devices is good, giving them a new life is even better ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

This laptop will be helping a newly arrived refugee single mother of two set up life in Canberra. Giving her access to services, employment, education and connection to family and friends ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you  #cbr for always looking out for each other โญ๏ธ

If you have a pre-loved mobile๐Ÿ“ฑ, laptop, desktop ๐Ÿ–ฅ or tablet in good condition head to our link ๐Ÿ”— in bio to see what IT devices are urgently needed now.

Did you know when you book your  #act  #bulkywaste collection you are donating items to GIVIT ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Thatโ€™s right, all good quality pre-loved items collected through bulky waste are offered to GIVIT registered charities, meaning they go to a home in need rather than taking up space in landfill ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

All Canberra residents can now make bookings to access their annual free bulky waste collection. ๐Ÿช‘

Clean house ๐Ÿก and do good at the same time ๐Ÿ’™

Items can include furniture, appliances and electrical equipment, but workers will only collect up to two cubic metres of waste per household.

Getting ready for NAIDOC Week 2021 ๐Ÿ’›โค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค

@givit_act is working with The Dr Steve Burroughs Foundation, to put together 300 toiletry packs for remote Indigenous communities.

On July 7, NAIDOC Week celebrations will be taking part in a region NSW township, in which communities from the greater region will travel large distances to take part in events. 

Health services will be available during NAIDOC Week celebrations. This is an incredible opportunity for these communities to have access to health care. These toiletry packs will act as an incentive for community members to see health professionals, and receive treatment and support if required. 

Many remote communities live in extremely basic conditions, with little to no access to housing needs, clothing, furniture and hygiene essentials. 
This foundation works with communities to break entrenched cycles of dysfunction, substance abuse and homelessness. 

To contribute to this incredible project click on the link ๐Ÿ”—in bio. You can give physical or items such as shampoo, body lotion, face washers or make a financial contribution of which ๐Ÿ’ฏ goes to purchase the essential items needed to complete these packs.

Repost for our fabulous friends @roundaboutcanberra ๐Ÿคฉ
We are excited to be working alongside these legends to ensure  #cbr families get the essentials they need and deserve ๐Ÿ’™

Last week we welcomed Kristi from @givit_act to our space.

Collaboration with other organisations ensures we can help the community to receive the items they need, when they need them.

Quite often we get contacted asking whether we accept large items including beds, chests of drawers, bedside tables, bikes and larger electronic items. Roundabout is quite limited on storage space so we stick to the essentials however GIVITs online platform helps get these items to the people who need them.

@givit_act is an online giving platform, matching needs within the community through support organisations and are a great option if you have household or larger items to rehome.

Letโ€™s face it, winter in our nationโ€™s capital is no joke๐Ÿฅถ

And the unfortunate reality is that for thousands of Canberrans there's no such thing as supplementary heat on demand, and for too many there's not even a roof over their heads. 

This is why @givit_act is on a mission to ensure that our community members doing it tough experience the warmth and comfort that everyone deserves.

There are currently over 500 requests from registered charities in the ACT that support those experiencing homeless and severe financial hardship. These requests range from waterproof jackets, heaters, blankets, warm pjs, sleeping bags and gloves. 

If you have an item to give, go to our link ๐Ÿ”—in bio to donate ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Donโ€™t have a physical item to give ๐Ÿค” no problem! You can donate funds of which ๐Ÿ’ฏ will go to purchasing these urgently needed winter essentials.

Come on  #canberra, letโ€™s give the gift of warmth this winter โ„๏ธ ๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ

Picture 587 tons worth of quality, pre-loved  #clothes,  #bedframes,  #washingmachines and other vital items. Thatโ€™s almost 300 cars worth. ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš— 
Now picture them rotting in  #landfill. Not a pretty picture, huh?

But wait, this isnโ€™t a downer ending.

Instead, picture those items filling the home of a mum whoโ€™s just escaped  #domesticviolence, giving a character experiencing  #homelessness a place to rest their head or making a familyโ€™s home home again after itโ€™s been destroyed in a  #naturaldisaster. This is the smart way to give. ๐Ÿ’š

๐ŸŒ Today is  #WorldEnvironmentDay @unep. Where we consider how to protect the environment around us. Weโ€™ve already reimagined how we eat, power our homes and drive our cars. Now is the time to rethink how we give. So, next time anyone you know wants to make a difference? Tell them to do it the smart way at ๐Ÿ’ป givit.org.au.  #GIVTheSmartWay
