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.
