Who does ProjectKindness help?
ProjectKindness provides support to the most vulnerable people in our Sydney-based community. These groups include migrant and refugee groups, people with mental illness, offenders being released back into the community, people with disabilities, from different cultural backgrounds or those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, people fleeing domestic violence, LGBTQI+ communities, homeless people and those who are socially isolated as well as any other members of the community who require support due to their vulnerability.
What type of support does ProjectKindness offer?
ProjectKindness distributes ‘Kindness Hampers’ made up to meet the requirements of the Kindness Recipient. The items we provide can include non-perishable groceries and household items such as bedding, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, towels, blankets etc. as well as age appropriate toys, books, children’s clothes and school supplies.
I need to ask ProjectKindness for help for myself or someone else. What should I do?
ProjectKindness is all about helping people and spreading kindness among our community. We aim to help everyone in need, no matter how big or small their problem might be.
We will be in contact within 24 hours of receiving a Kindness Request to organise the best time to drop off. Please note that we only deliver to within five kilometres of Kensington. If you are requesting support for yourself, please submit this form.
As a Health Professional, am I able to request support for my clients?
ProjectKindness provides Kindness Hampers to people referred by Health Professionals. We will be in contact within 24 hours of receiving a Kindness Request to organise the best time for collection. ProjectKindness’ preference is that kindness hampers are collected by Health Professionals from our base in Kensington. Please call to discuss if this is not possible. If you are a Health Professional requesting kindness for someone else, please submit this form.
Where does my donation go?
If you are making a donation, your support is directed to the area of greatest need, in the most efficient way possible. Donations are used to support all activities detailed on our website.
Do you accept monetary donations and how do I receive a donation receipt?
The best way to help us improve the lives of Sydney’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people is to send a donation our way. We would never ask you to part with your hard-earned cash if it weren’t for a super worthy cause – we think our project falls under the worthiest of endeavours. It doesn’t matter how much you donate however, the fact that you’re willing to give even a little of what you have to help feed a family or provide relief to someone escaping a violent relationship shows that your kindness is worth its weight in gold.
All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible. If you make a one-off donation online, you will be receipted instantly via email. If you become a regular donor and make monthly donations, you will receive a consolidated tax receipt covering all your donations at the end of the Financial Year.
