Charlie’s Gift values all those within its community and believes we all have what it takes to be the heroes in someone else’s story. We have seen first-hand that small gestures and a little generosity can be the difference between our aged experiencing optimal or poor wellbeing and end of life experiences. Supporting Charlie’s Gift in any capacity means that you too become the heroes in someone else’s story.
One of the fabulous things about being part of Charlie’s Gift is volunteering and providing small gestures to bring moments of joy and connection to our aged. Ever since I was little, I saw something awe provoking in the elderly. Looking in their eyes told me much. Many of the elderly in my street were my best friends and to this day I think of them with fondness and gratitude.
Charlie’s Gift values lie within the importance of the “gift of giving” to enable wellbeing and connection for all our aged. However, we also know that the “gift” goes both ways and we receive just as much as we give.
Despite limited funding and the impact of the Corona Virus we have managed to bring a little joy to many aged within our community. These are some of our stories.
We welcome anyone of any age to become a Charlie’s Gifter. Together we truly will make a difference
