People Not Research
Our motto is “people not research.” There are wonderful charities in Australia connected to breast cancer research or patient care.
Our focus is on local Brisbane people on their breast cancer journey and providing immediate practical and financial support to these individuals and their families.
All donations go directly to support local Brisbane people on a breast cancer journey.
Be Uplifted Inc is a registered charity that provides practical support and financial assistance for real life costs encountered by breast cancer patients and survivors in our local Brisbane community.
Would you or your work place like to host a fundraising event or maybe you would like to create a Go Fund Me fundraiser for Be Uplifted Inc charity? We’d love to hear from you and to help you get your fundraiser off the ground.
Money received from fundraising is not spent on administrative costs of our non-profit organisation. Which means every extra dollar we raise is an extra dollar we can use to help a Brisbane breast cancer patient and their family.
We are only limited by the amount of fundraising dollars we receive each year to reach out and help local Brisbane people on a breast cancer journey.
Host your Own Pink Event
There are many people in our Brisbane community who host their own Be Uplifted Inc charity fundraiser event where part of, or all funds raised are donated to Be Uplifted Inc charity each year.
On these occasions, we support their fundraising activity by promoting their fundraising event on Be Uplifted Inc socials and website. We are always keen to receive feedback or new event ideas that you, your work place, your club or your school may have or would like to host.
Being Uplifting is what we aim to be.
Be Uplifted Inc Breast Cancer Charity was founded and registered in 2009 by two incredibly strong women: Barbara Zimmerlie and Wendy Paterson who both survived their breast cancer fight.
Barbara and Wendy felt they had been given a second chance at life. They both wanted to channel and focus their energies to assisting other women, men and their families who were embarking on the same journey.
Examples of how we are being uplifting to Brisbane people on a breast cancer journey are we provide access to services and programs, pay bills and provide goods or assistance to alleviate financial difficulty or disadvantage.
Be Uplifted Inc will arrange for example a wheelchair for a terminally ill breast cancer patient, purchase a family a new washing machine, provide a patient who has lost their casual employment with groceries or assist with schooling costs for a single young mum who simply has too many bills to pay because of her breast cancer treatment.
