Dharma Care Winter Warmer Homelessness Relief Campaign: Opening Hearts and Wallets with Double Donation Matching to Support People Experiencing Homelessness across Tweed, Australia.

Dharma Care is excited to announce its Winter Warmer Homelessness Relief Campaign is off to a flying start, with the sold-out Fundraising Cabaret held at Kingscliff on Thurs 15 June generating $13,184 in income and donations towards this really important cause.

Funds raised will provide essential support and comfort to people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, in the Tweed Shire during the cold winter months.   Dharma Care is an Australian charity dedicated to creating life-changing opportunities for the destitute and disadvantaged. It’s our mission to facilitate lasting change, creating a ripple effect that benefits future generations.

A total of $45,900 has been raised at time of this release. Now for every dollar YOU donate, we have a very special donor who will match that donation by up to $25,000.

Yes, that’s right – your contribution will be doubled. This presents an amazing opportunity for you to magnify your impact on the lives of those who are doing it tough this winter. A big thank you to our incredible matching donor – and to all the wonderful donors and event attendees.

As temperatures drop and harsh weather conditions set in, Dharma Care recognises the challenges faced by individuals and families who struggle to stay warm and healthy.

The Winter Warmer Campaign aims to raise at AUD $75,000 to ensure everyone who finds themselves in that situation has access to adequate shelter, warmth, and nourishment through providing food, sleeping bags, hygiene packs, and tents.

“We have been delighted with the response to our Cabaret night and the support from everyone who donated their time, expertise or money to this cause.  It once again shows what a caring community we are. It also shows that anything is possible when we work together.”
Irwan Wyllie, CEO of Dharma Care.

By donating to the campaign, you will have a direct impact in supporting those in need to stay warm and safe during the winter season.   Winter can be an incredibly challenging time for those facing homelessness, and we believe it is our collective responsibility as a community to lend a helping hand. We encourage everyone in the community to join us in supporting this campaign. 

Dharma Care will work with its local partners, You Have A Friend, Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre, Fred’s Place – Vinnies, and Murwillumbah Community Centre, to ensure the resources go to where they are most needed across the Tweed region.

Dharma Care invites individuals, corporations, and community organisations to participate in the Winter Warmer – Homelessness Relief Campaign. Whether through tax-deductible donations, volunteer work, sponsorships, or spreading awareness. Every contribution will make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in need.
