Throughout Australia there are many individuals and groups who have achieved amazing things on our behalf. Some Give what they can from time to time, others work with groups to raise money in many different ways. We could not do the work we do without these remarkable people and are truly grateful for their wonderful generosity.
Here are just a few examples of some of the achievements on our behalf.
On Australia Day 2013, enterprising WA good bloke Stuart Moran decided to hold a charity sweepstake in aid of MicroLoan Foundation. The aim for competitors was to pick the songs that would make it into ABC radio station Triple J’s Australia Day Top 100 songs of the year (which is voted by the public via text and email). The winner, judged on a points-based system, took away a Soundcast Outcast speaker dock designed to be used outdoors. Not just a fantastic sound system, the prize was also given a makeover by urban artist Cherry Pearce, making it truly one of a kind.
Through this Stuart has raised funds for MicroLoan Foundation, for which we are incredibly grateful. The money raised is now helping 10 (or more) women get small loans and business training that will help them lift themselves out of poverty.
Thank you Stuart!
The Elliott Brothers
MicroLoan Foundation Australia is hugely grateful to Max and Peter Elliot who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds for us. The brothers departed on 17th January 2013 with sponsorship pledges and a hope that they could turn this in to real funding for the work of the Microloan Foundation.
They were truly successful and we thank them for their fundraising and adventurous efforts on behalf of our clients in Malawi.
We are incredibly honoured that Ubuntu Art has chosen to support us at their 2011 exhibition to take place at the Sydney College of Art, Callan Park, Rozelle.
Ubuntu was the brain child of three individuals who wanted to give something back to society, whilst combining this with their passion for art.
Over the last few years Ian Thomas, Gillian Johnston and Cathy McQuade have managed to convince many hundreds of gifted Australian artists to Give to Ubuntu one of their treasured artworks. These paintings are displayed, and made available for sale, at the Sydney College of Art over a single weekend.
Ubuntu Art 2011 raised funds to help our work in Malawi.
So thanks to Ian, Gillian and Cathy from Ubuntu yet again for making 2011 such a great year for nearly 400 families in Malawi.
Thank you Amanda Krantz for providing Gifts raised by selling one of your paintings.
Thank you Peter Hodgson for your regular monthly Gifts.
Thank you Jack Tan for your Gift towards our launch event.
MicroLoan Foundation Australia, Development Director Clive Hughes took part in October 2009 in the World Masters Games 70km cycle road race and at the same time raised funds for MicroLoan Foundation Australia. Funds that went straight to the Australian MLFA office in Mulanje.
