ANZCA ASM Brisbane 3-7 May 2024:

2024 ANZCA ASM supported charities

 

In lieu of gifts and on behalf of all ASM speakers, presenters, facilitators and contributors, the 2024 regional organising committee has chosen to support two charities: Orange Sky and Story Dogs. A donation of $A5000 will be made to each organisation 

Orange Sky aims to positively connect communities through a regular laundry and shower service for some of the 122,000 Aussies experiencing homelessness and hardship. The focus is on genuine, non-judgemental conversation and connection. 

 

Story Dogs – When children read to a dog, the outcomes are amazing. It is a non-judgemental setting, the children’s focus improves, their literacy skills increase and their confidence soars. The accepting, loving nature of dogs gives this program its magic and helps children relax, open up, try harder and have fun while reading to a friendly, calm dog. Woof!
