While the Grateful in April campaign is free and always will be, please consider showing your gratitude by helping support others who are facing tough times through our charity, the m.a.d.woman foundation. The m.a.d.woman foundation provides care packs to support people facing disadvantage. You can read more at www.madwoman.com.au . Your gift of $10 will fund a care pack for someone in need. This includes women and kids fleeing domestic violence, kids in foster care, homeless youth and adults, asylum seekers, disabled and disadvantaged youth, long-term unemployed and people facing illness and more. You can donate directly (receive a tax-deduction receipt in Australia for donations over $2) and/or undertake a fundraising challenge.
