After such a difficult year for so many as 2021 has been, this Christmas the Australian arm of Isuzu UTE are getting into the spirit of the season, pledging a $100,000 donation across three charities making a positive impact on the lives of Australians: RizeUp Australia, the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Isuzu UTE Australia say they have engaged the Isuzu community and partners to determine how this money will be distributed amongst these three charities, so that they too can be involved in helping to spread the Christmas Spirit.
“The past two years have been like no other and through it all, these three essential charities have not waned in providing the life-saving and much needed services that they offer, to people right across the country,” said Isuzu UTE Australia Managing Director, Hiroyasu Sato.
“We felt it only right to contribute to the wonderful work they continue to do, and encourage others to do the same—sharing the Christmas spirit this holiday season.”
Recognising that domestic and family violence in Australia is a significant social injustice, RizeUp Australia’s mission is to drive awareness of these issues within society and at the same time, provide practical support for the families affected. This donation will help them continue their vital homes and youth programs which empower and bring hope to so many vulnerable families.
For over 30 years, Starlight Children’s Foundation have used play, social connection and creativity to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families. This donation will help grant life-changing Starlight Wishes as well as support Starlight’s vital in-hospital programs to help bring happiness to sick kids when they need it most.
As one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world, the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been saving lives in rural and remote Australia for over 90 years. This donation will assist them in continuing to provide health care and 24-hour emergency service to these rural and remote Australians.
The donation towards these three impactful charities, will see that some much-needed support and joy will go to families and those who need it. This Christmas, Isuzu UTE Australia encourages the community to show their support towards not-for-profit organisations like RizeUp Australia, the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Royal Flying Doctor Service, who are continuing to make a difference right across the country.
