This month’s Freedom Internet Team Wellness Challenge is all about improving the teams average score with a prize that’s a little different.
We asked each team to choose a charity that they’d like to get moving for, thank you for your input in this. Freedom Internet will donate $200 to the winning teams charity – see below your chosen charities.
Rosie’s Friends on the Street
Rosie’s reaches out to those most in need, those people who are abandoned, marginalised, socially isolated within our communities. They run an outreach program where volunteers meet once a month to provide food, supplies and friendship to people on the street. The Rosies Prayer: “O Jesus, make our hearts so human, that others may feel at home with us, so like Yours, that others may feel at home with You, so forgetful of self that we might simply become the place where You and they meet in the power of Your love and the joy of Your friendship. Amen”
$200 would mean 40 homeless people receive a meal and a one on one interaction with a volunteer.
Chained Dog Rehabilitation and Rehoming NZ
CDRRNZ are a group of dedicated volunteers who provide immediate support and rescue to neglected and abused dogs that are permanently chained. Their mission is to empower dog owners by providing the tools that will remove the need for dogs to be life-chained. Where a dog gets relinquished, they provide rehabilitation through training and foster care, and assist with the rehoming so dogs can live a happy and healthy life.
$200 would cover the cost of de-sexing and vaccinations for a dog in need.
Kythe is a non-profit, non-stock organization aimed towards improving the quality of life among hospitalized children with cancer and other chronic illness. As the only foundation in the Philippines offering the Kythe Child Life Program, we have provided psychosocial support to over 8,000 children with cancer and other chronic illness and their families since 1992. Kythe provides families with information on basic access to medicines and treatment. The approach to enabling families to cope with their children’s condition includes counseling and bereavement support.
$200 would cover a month of medical assistance to supplement procedures such as blood transfusions, X-rays, and CT scans; medicines such as antibiotics and vitamins. T
