You already know that Be Uplifted Inc is about “People Not Research”, but do you truly know what that means?
Today we would like to tell you more about our breast cancer charity, and how our ethos helps to change the lives of local men and women seriously ill with breast cancer.
We are sharing five simple facts that you need to know about our breast cancer charity.
1.100% of the donations we receive go directly to supporting those men and women and their families on a breast cancer journey.
This is such an important issue for Be Uplifted Inc. Many larger charitable organisations require huge administrations to operate. But at Be Uplifted Inc, every person you meet, and every gift patients receive is the result of donations, either of funding, sponsorship, fundraising (for example our stalls at local shopping centres, donation boxes located about the local area or raffle tables or our bbq tables) and time or effort from our hardworking volunteers.
2. We focus on practical, everyday patient support.
We guarantee that the funds you give will be used to help breast cancer patients will pay for very practical things patients cannot afford during their cancer treatment.
We visit breast cancer patients at the local hospitals, and receive referrals from local breast care nurses and the public.
The support we provide is both emotional and practical. This could range from arranging visits with a psychologist, to providing small but practical items like drain bags and pillows to help during breast surgery, or care hampers containing toiletries, to larger financial support for patients unable to work and make ends meet during their chemotherapy.
3. Our work is limited only by the funds we raise
Because all the funds we raise go back to helping the families that are on this breast cancer journey, our breast cancer care services are only limited by the amount of funds we can raise. Which means the more money we can raise, the more breast cancer patients we can help.
4. We are a grassroots, local charity
Be Uplifted Inc was originally located in Geebung, and is now based in Zillmere, Brisbane, and we work within the local area. With the wonderful support of the local community we run two Op Shops- one in Aspley and one in Zillmere.
Our small overhead expenses mean that Be Uplifted Inc does not waste its sponsorships and community donations on administrative costs or bureaucratic processes, and can focus on ensuring patients that need care and attention receive it.
5. Our charity is run by a team of dedicated volunteers
And in accordance with our charity’s values, our dedicated volunteers work hard to ensure the practical needs of breast cancer patients are met during this very difficult time.
They are constantly out and about in the community sharing the message of Be Uplifted Inc, staffing our Op Shop, and can be seen gathering support for our breast cancer charity and also at local hospitals and about in the community delivering personal, loving care to breast cancer patients.
So what does all of this mean?
