Reflecting on the first half of this year, we're happy to see that our goal of donating $20,000 is on track. Whether it be to charities, causes, community groups, or just generally sharing some good in the world.
What communities and causes have we supported?
During the 2021 Land Forces expo, Anywise had a competition for people to vote for their favourite charity or cause. The winner was Forge Through and they received a $5,000 donation to help them continue the great work they do.
Working with Veterans and First Responders over an anvil and hearth. Forge Through was developed to start conversations around mental health and PTSD. To assist those who have suffered from the demands of their role serving the people of Australia.
Original & Authentic Aboriginal Art
As part of our Reconciliation Action Plan, Anywise purchased an incredible artwork to use in our RAP and also to display in our new office. We're looking forward to working with more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses in the future.

Similar to the Yarra River Dragons, Shele Waide is raising money for Oli who suffers from highly aggressive Neuroblastoma by taking on the challenging 7-day Larapinta trail. Having raised close to $10,000 with a goal of $3,500, it is incredible to see the great work they have done.
