The Brush with Kindness program mobilises teams of volunteers to conduct landscaping and minor repairs to the exterior of homes of people who may be disadvantaged, disabled or socially isolated. It is a ‘backyard blitz’ style activity where teams between 10-15 can get out of the office and get their hands dirty!
The program also partners with other no-for-profits to deliver safe and decent shelter to disadvantaged groups that deliver housing solutions. Habitat can deliver full day activities for teams between 10-15 people within 60 mins of the Sydney CBD. In Melbourne and Adelaide, teams can expect to take part in building homes for Habitat partner families.
Through our Australian Program, we have helped over 1,000 people through Brush with Kindness activities and engaged with more than 7,500 volunteers from both the community and corporate sector.
Corporate supporters including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Genworth, JP Morgan, Arup, Cuscal, MetLife, Salesforce and P&G have participated in Brush with Kindness activities and continuously report positive staff engagement.
“It was great to get involved in a variety of tasks that would ensure the families could get into their homes on time and it was great to be able to meet them and share in their stories.” BWK Volunteer
We can book teams within 6 weeks’ notice and do ask for a financial contribution to support the day’s resourcing and ensure the sustainability of our programs. We invite corporates to talk to us for any further enquiries.
