Charitable Causes


 

We proudly support a number of amazing Australian charitable causes. Each of these charities holds a special place in our hearts and we are proud to support them in any small way we can. Part proceeds from every Whirlwind Celebrations order will be donated directly to your choice of one of these causes.

Whirlwind Celebrations is proudly supporting Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, the largest funder of Perth Children’s Hospital and the wider Child and Adolescent Health Service after government. With the help of our generous WA community, their efforts ensure that WA sick kids and young people continue to receive world class paediatric care that comes from ground breaking research, world-class expertise, advanced equipment and technology, innovative education and training programs as well as positive patient and family experiences.

Your support is vital to the Foundation as they pursue their mission of helping to transform the health care of WA’s sick children and young people so they can live their healthiest and happiest lives.

Whirlwind Celebrations is proudly supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia to help change the lives of Australian men and their loved ones who have been affected by prostate cancer. Around 1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer and each year it will kill more men than most other cancers. Your support is helping to create a future where prostate cancer is no longer a killer, where side effects are minimal and where men are well informed and supported.

PCFA relies on the generosity of the community to carry out their essential work. You can help create a future where every man diagnosed with the disease has access to a Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse and where research leads to new treatment options that will ensure our men can live longer and better lives.

This is a cause that is certainly close to our hearts as we recently lost a close family member to prostate cancer—Vin, our beloved father, father-in-law and grandpa.

Whirlwind Celebrations is proudly supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF).

Every woman, everywhere – free from the threat of ovarian cancer. Everybody strives to live well – happily, healthily, fully. The OCRF wants to ensure a future where no woman’s wellbeing is under threat from ovarian cancer.

Established in 2000, the OCRF has grown to become Australia’s leading independent body dedicated to funding national ovarian cancer research. They demonstrate leadership in the ovarian cancer space through:

  • prioritising research that will have the biggest impact for the most women
  • collaborating with ovarian cancer experts to identify and pursue the most promising projects
  • embracing a dual focus on both the present (reducing the lethal threat for women today) and the future (striving for complete eradication of ovarian cancer).

    This charitable cause was chosen as a close family member battled ovarian cancer many years ago. Although she is thankfully now well, we are forever grateful that she received great treatment and support and is still here with us today, fulfilling her role as a wonderful mum and nana.

    Whirlwind Celebrations is proudly supporting Beyond Blue. Beyond Blue is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by anxiety, depression and suicide—and creating change to protect everyone’s mental health.

    Your donation will help Beyond Blue to reduce the impact of depression, anxiety and suicide by supporting people to protect their mental health and to recover when they are unwell; to reduce people’s experiences of stigma and discrimination; and to improve people’s opportunities to get effective support and services at the right time.

    Whirlwind Celebrations is proudly supporting The Smith Family, the largest children’s education charity helping young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed at school, so they can create better futures for themselves.

    Their flagship Learning for Life program currently supports around 50,000 young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed at school, in three distinct ways. They provide financial support for school essentials, like uniforms and books. They provide access to additional learning programs before and after school—tailored to each child’s individual needs. And they match each child with a dedicated coach at The Smith Family to help them get to school, stay at school and go on to further training or work. This proven three-pronged approach is equipping these children with the motivation, resilience and life skills they need to complete their schooling and go on to better futures.

SAFE Perth relies on the generosity of the public to continue saving animals from early and unnecessary death. Every woof, meow and squeak matters!
