Here’s an update of our GiveBack from September and October. Life…sometimes it gets crazy busy right? Looking back over the past few months has made us smile. There have been a few moments of serious should-ing, you know what it’s like when you give yourself a hard time about things you SHOULD be doing? Crunching the numbers for our GiveBack for the past few months and getting this blog post out has been a serious should for us.
As you can see, we’ve been out and about providing wellness treatments to homeless and vulnerable young people a lot. Over the months of September and October we delivered a whopping 180 sessions!
Gratitude to the following businesses and organisations that paid for our services:
- Infoxchange – our team provided four hours of workplace massage
- Queensland Government Department of Premier and Cabinet – our team provided 16 hours of workplace massage
- Saints Peter and Paul’s School in Bulimba – our team provided six hours of workplace massage
- We provided 10 hours of onsite massage for people doing the Nia White Belt training
- We were also at the Queensland Teachers Union providing workplace massage
By paying for our wellbeing services such as workplace massage, these businesses and organisations enable us to GiveBack wellness services to vulnerable and homeless young people.
If you’re part of a workplace that could do with some workplace wellness, head over here to see the range of services we offer. You can feel twice as good knowing your workplace is taking steps to wellness and providing access to treatments for vulnerable and homeless young people.
Our GiveBack in September and October saw us providing treatments at our regular gigs. The beauty of having these regular gigs is that we get to build relationships and trust (so important!) with the young people receiving treatments. Here’s where we were…
- Brisbane Town Hall at the Red Cross Night Café where we provided 80 sessions
- We set up our massage chairs and pop up hairdressers near the mobile laundry from Orange Sky Laundry and provided 25 haircut sessions and 50 massage sessions
- At Brisbane Youth Service Centre for Young Families where we provided 10 sessions to young parents. We also provided treatments to a three year old child and a 9 month old baby who were in deep need.
- At Jabiru College where we provided 15 sessions to the young people attending the college.
Special thanks to our GiveBack Ambassadors who had the highest contributions for the period:
- Ann at Ann Boon Inspiration with a contribution that will provide 27 wellness sessions
- Kate at Bella Bliss Massage with a contribution that will provide 21 sessions
- Nemo at NBN Fancy Interiors with a contribution that will provide 15 sessions
- Wendy at Vital Vibrations with a contribution that will provide 6 sessions
We’re excited about the impact we’re having providing Wellness for Homeless. It truly is incredible to witness the impact that access to wellness treatments is having on the lives of vulnerable and homeless young people. Want to join our tribe and get involved? Find out how here.
