Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
A strong sense of social responsibility and the joy of giving back to the community serve as the motivation for Blockout Blinds, the leading manufacturer of high quality blinds, fly screens and awnings Melbourne homeowners have been purchasing from, to support local non-profit organisation Bridge Builders in raising money to help youths with issues find leadership. The company recognises the great work Bridge Builders is doing in creating positive opportunities within the community to help young people grow physically, emotionally and spiritually, and encourages other local groups to also lend a helping hand and donate to the organisation working hard to achieve this year's financial goals.
Bridge Builders, a non-profit youth organisation based in Lilydale, delivers a wide range of youth services to the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne and throughout Victoria. The charitable group does not receive financial backing from the government for its services and relies solely on business partnerships, events and their own committed and devoted volunteers to sufficiently provide for the work carried out for the community. Youth engagement and development are two of the most important elements of Bridge Builders’ work, and they come up with specialised programs and events that allow young people to develop important skills that will provide them a great advantage in all their present and future life endeavours.
It’s largely due to these dynamics that, for the past three years, Blockout Blinds has been assisting Bridge Builders in generating money to finance its youth activities and services. Every year, the company donates a substantial amount of money and also provides mis-measured blinds (everything from roller blinds to café blinds to Venetian blinds) to Bridge Builders which then auctions them off to raise money; the company gives about 300 blinds to the organisation every year. In addition, committing to this cause has a side benefit as the events of Bridge Builders also allow Blockout Blinds and other corporate sectors to market their business through a wide range of sponsorship options.
Currently, the organisation has raised $10,552 and is still welcoming donations from everybody interested to take part in this great ministry. Donations are tax deductible and can be a one-time or recurring arrangement.
