Since European settlement, over 90 million hectares of land across Australia has been cleared, threatening species and the productivity of farmlands. Climate change will only exacerbate the impact with reduced rainfall, increased temperatures, droughts and more frequent extreme weather events.
Greening Australia aims to restore 330,000 hectares of native trees across Australia by 2030. Drawing on the expert input of Traditional Owners, scientists and local land managers, we will plant 500 million trees and shrubs to store carbon, create quality habitat for native wildlife, and restore degraded farmland. These 500 million trees and shrubs will absorb over 1.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by 2030, and reduce atmospheric carbon pollution.
This is one of the world’s largest and most ambitious ecological restoration programs.

Send Hope Not Flowers
Provide a safe birth – give the gift of a safe birth
Papua New Guinea has one of the highest maternal death rates in the world. 98% of these deaths are easily preventable.
Send Hope Not Flowers works with Australian Dr. Barry Kirby in remote Milne Bay Province, PNG. We gift families with a Baby Bundle to incentivise mothers to come to a health clinic to give birth. The bundle is filled with basic supplies for mother and baby – and includes the $5 cost for delivery at the clinic.
The Baby Bundle project is directly responsible for a 78% decrease in the maternal death rate in the region.
Send Hope Not Flowers is dedicated to helping mothers survive childbirth across the developing world.

Support Syrian Refugees
Give food and water
Seven years of war in Syria has forced over 5.6 million people to flee their homes, leaving jobs, family and friends. They are desperate to escape the violence. Thousands have died at sea or on land.
Survivors are filled with uncertainty as they travel, sometimes for weeks, in search of a safe place to call home.
CARE is providing lifesaving essentials including clean water, food, medicines and shelter to families in refugee camps in Europe, the Middle East and those still trapped in Syria.
