Throughout December the Aspirall team decided to join The Smith Family – Joy Spreader Appeal, instead of participating in Kris Kringle.
We were honoured to put our money and thoughts towards something that is truly meaningful, in supporting the education of disadvantaged children in Australia.
A gift that is long lasting.
The Smith Family are a national children’s charity that help disadvantaged young Australians to succeed at school and get the most out of their education so that they can create better futures for themselves.
The Joy Spreader Appeal is an online gifting program/shop where anyone at any time can donate. The gifts range from reading and numeracy packs, contributions to basic school costs like a new school bag, and ongoing career and study mentoring programs.

As the old adage goes, give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.
Though the statement is cliché, the sentiment sits true in Aspirall’s values. It is through education and development that we grow and become more powerful in ourselves.
Wishing all families out there a happy, healthy and transformative 2017.
