In March, Muffin Break committed to raising 10 cents for every Muffin sold during their $2 Muffin Day celebrations to support the charity, GIVIT, directly for fellow Australians impacted by the floods in New South Wales and Queensland.
Throughout its biggest celebration of the year, customers’ support from around the country helped Muffin Break raise $10,000.00 for GIVIT.
Muffin Break General Manager, Natalie Brennan, said, “Times are tough for those impacted by the flooding in New South Wales and Queensland. We are so thankful for each and every one of our customers for their support of their fellow Australians. It’s a true testament to the strength of Australian communities.”
WHO IS GIVIT & WHERE WILL THE FUNDS GO?
GIVIT is a not-for-profit organisation making a huge, positive difference in Australia.
In 2009, Juliette Wright, the founder of GIVIT, was surprised at how difficult it was to find someone in genuine need of the high-quality baby clothes she no longer required after having her second child.
She discovered that while many local charities were over-loaded with unwanted or poor-quality goods, they were desperately seeking essential items.
Within six months, Juliette had set up a website and recruited 15 charities. A donated bike enabled a single mother to get to work, and a donated microwave helped a recently widowed elderly man, unable to cook for himself. Within weeks, more than 80 charities came on board. Before long, GIVIT connected thousands of Australians with hundreds of charities.
In 2019, GIVIT turned 10 and hit the incredible milestone of one million donations.
In 2022, GIVIT is continuing their incredible work and is managing offers of donated goods, services, volunteering and funds, including corporate offers, in response to the widespread flooding across Queensland and New South Wales.
The funds raised by Muffin Break and their outstanding customers, will be donated directly to GIVIT to assist with the impact and rebuilding.
