Floriade is working with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and GIVIT during 2017.

Each year Floriade works with charities from around Australia to raise awareness and raise funds for worthy causes.

National Breast Cancer Foundation

National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is 100% community funded and the only national body that funds life-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public. Breast cancer is the most common cancer facing Australian women, with eight women dying from the disease each day — mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends.

Research is the only way to prevent deaths, and improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated. By funding only world-class research, NBCF is working towards a goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

GIVIT

GIVIT

GIVIT is a national online not-for-profit connecting those who need with those willing to give. Through its website givit.org.au, trusted Australian charities are supported as they request essential, quality items on behalf of their clients. GIVIT matches their needs to public generosity, facilitating quality goods to reach our most vulnerable, impoverished and marginalised individuals in a safe, easy and timely manner. Since establishment in 2009, nearly 500,000 items have been donated via GIVIT to assist Australians in need. During the 2011 Queensland floods, GIVIT received 1.8 million website hits in 10 days and more than 33,500 goods were matched in three weeks. This led to the establishment of a dedicated GIVIT Disaster Recovery Service. Now, in partnership with the Queensland Government, GIVIT manages all offers of goods and services during state disasters. In 2015, GIVIT gained national attention with founder and CEO, Juliette Wright, receiving Australia’s Local Hero Award by the National Australia Day Council and inducted into the Australian Businesswomen’s Network Hall of Fame. GIVIT also received a National Resilient Australia Award by Australia’s Attorney-General for its disaster recovery service and The Australian National Innovation Challenge Award.
