$2 donated from every book sale in October!
We are extremely excited to announce that from the 10th of October 2020, Skye has kindly offered to donate $2 from every book and resource purchased to The Care Initiative to help them with their projects in The Human Care Initiative. Skye’s mission was to write an engaging children’s book using the power of storytelling to explore the impact Covid-19 is having on children in a way that asks them to reflect on their own experiences, promotes resilience and serves as an essential reminder that we really are all in this together. All you have to do is read the testimonials on her website to see that her mission is proving successful.
Skye is a high school teacher, youth program facilitator and now author and we are so grateful for this opportunity to align with such a passionate and dedicated person.
“The Care Initiative is on a mission to make Mental Health care accessible and affordable to those who need it most. This is something I am personally passionate about, and I’m so excited to support The Care Initiative in their mission”

What do you think of when you hear the words feeling blue?? Stereotypically it can mean you are feeling sad and a little Eeyore like… but to others its their favourite colour. Words are subjective to the person who is hearing them and it's ok to ask for others to understand that.
Sadly, the latest stats reveal that Mental Health conditions is effecting 1 in 5 Australians. To launch The Human Care Initiative and their campaign with Media Doctors Australia of #itsOK2ask, Kate Nabarro founder of the organisations is colouring her hair for Mental Health Week.
THCI is on a mission to make Mental Health care accessible and affordable to those who need it most. Alongside Media Doctors Australia, they have partnered with Health and Medical Services Collective (a team of like minded trained councillors, paramedics and psychologists) to achieve this.
Until 30th October we are asking people to make a small donation (many smaller impacts can make a large impact) please think about donating your coffee money for the next few days to help us along with our projects.

"After hearing of yet another facility with multiple deaths related to this disease (Campylobacter) I put the call out for some funding to help install a water purifier. Kate and The Care Initiative jumped on board right away with a large donation towards this project. A few other donations and we now have safe water for our joeys. The donation was not an impersonal bank deposit. Kate arranged a Zoom meeting with Sarah Hart and we chatted about the work I was doing and I was able to show Kate around the property and to introduce her to the 6 joeys I had in care, who were all sleeping peacefully in the sunshine. It was the personal approach that was so appreciated. Wildlife carers are often very disconnected from the world as our babies need us 24/7 so for Kate to make the time to chat online was fabulous. She is also a huge encouragement on my Social media platform, closely following what is happening here. I am looking forward to welcoming Kate to Amaris when our borders open again. I hope it won’t be too long."

Having an initiative like this to help others is much needed and appreciated in the tough time’s the world is in offering assistance any shape of form is greatly received . A heartfelt thank you and keep up the great work."

Within a day of her arrival, Kate’s confidence, leadership ability and social networking mindset had her immediately organizing group meals and much needed decompression time for all volunteers on the project site. She had an enthusiastic willingness to provide aid in any capacity within her ability, only to take a back seat to her dedication and genuine concern for others. From a logistical standpoint, Kate always demonstrated strong
organizational skills and efficient task completion most of us could only aspire to. Though my time working directly with Kate was limited to less than a month, it is without hesitation that I retain complete confidence she would excel in any role relating to a team environment, a need for organization, attention to detail and an adherence to schedule. She is forthright and honest, possessing excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to navigate a team, encompassing many different personalities.
