Red Nose Day Awareness

Posted on 8 August, 2019 at 19:55

Good Morning to you all!

Today is August 9th, also recognised as Red Nose Day around the world. In Australia, we raise awareness for those who are stricken with the tragedy of the death of a child. Annually, 3,200 Australian families experience the sudden and unexpected death of a baby or child. This has to stop. Through world-class research, advocacy and education we can put an end to this. Red Nose Day helps to raise awareness and funds for this very purpose.

Through the fundraising efforts of charities such as Red Nose Australia (Formerly SIDS & Kids [2016]), we have been able to reduce SIDS by 85% and raise over $17 million to invest in lifesaving research. There is still a ways to go, so we continue to recognise this day in an effort to stop little lives being cut short once and for all.

If you are able, please donate to this very worthy cause. And if you can't, show your support by wearing a red nose, or sharing this post so that others can be informed of this important day.

Thank you, and have a lovely day.

Flannie Day

Posted on 7 August, 2019 at 22:45

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Yesterday was Flannie Day, and some of our staff decided to show their support by turning up wearing their finest flannel apparel. Just look at these lovely people! 

Flannie Day is an annual awareness and action day on the issues of homelessness and hunger in Australia. It's held on the first Wednesday of August and in the middle of Homelessness Prevention Week. Participants wear a flannie to raise awareness about homelessness and food insecurity in Australia, and take action by taking part in the Flannie Day Food Drive or fundraising for a local charity, assisting vulnerable people who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness and hunger in our local communities. You can choose your own charity, or support those who are at the forefront of assisting those in need; Oz Harvest, Foodbank, and StreetSmart Australia.

Thank you for your time,
- The Team at Survivor's R Us.

Our Food Truck

Posted on 26 June, 2019 at 23:45

At the end of March, the lovely people at Tasty Trucks were kind enough to gift us our very own Hot Food Van! Since then, we've been able to deliver hot food directly to those who need it most.

We've collaborated with fellow not-for-profit charities, such as Warlga Ngurra, Tricia House Refuge, Our Backyard Lake Macquarie, Uniting Church, and Hands of Hope, to provide food for those in need almost every afternoon through the week. 

On Tuesdays, we have our Hot Food Van on-site to supply hot food from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm.



We have a new service available!

Posted on 26 June, 2019 at 21:25

Survivors R Us are excited to announce that starting next Tuesday we have a weekly volunteer barber on board! We now need a supply of black hand towels, a barber chair and a rectangular small mirror. We would also appreciate donations of any professional barber equipment (clippers, scissors, hair dryer).


Trip to Canberra for Bellata kids!

Posted on 25 June, 2019 at 21:20

The kids of Bellata Primary School are wanting to go to Canberra in Term 4 of this year. Due to the drought some of the families are finding it really tough financially. We would love to be able to help these families out so that the kids can go on this excursion. We believe that every child should have the chance to experience going to our nation's capital.
