Isuzu UTE Australia has pledged $100,000 to help those struggling this Christmas.
The donation will go to three essential charities that help families right across Australia; The Salvation Army, Beyond Blue and Lifeline Australia.
For more than 140 years, The Salvation Army has been at the forefront, supporting Aussie families in need with nationwide initiatives and support campaigns, working directly with those who need support the most.
Recognising that not all struggles are monetary or physical, Beyond Blue provides much-needed support to those experiencing anxiety, depression or suicide.
Operating 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, Lifeline Australia provides crisis support and emotional assistance to those in need, not only by telephone, but also via text and online.
Isuzu’s managing director Hiroyasu Sato decided to make the donation in view of the events of this year.
“Traditionally, we would invest in a Christmas advertising campaign, but we feel that given that this year has been tough for most, we would much rather give back to those in need, which is why we’re giving that money instead to The Salvation Army, Beyond Blue and Lifeline Australia.” he said.
Recognising that Christmas is only Christmas when shared with others, Isuzu encourages the community to show support towards not-for-profit organisations, who are making a difference this Christmas — like The Salvation Army, Beyond Blue and LifelineAustralia.
Beyond support for these three charities this Christmas, Isuzu also works year round with some fantastic family-focused charities such as DanielMorecombeFoundation and 4 ASD Kids.
