Welcome to Mondo Community Warriors!
Our Vision for our Charities and Recipients
Mondo Community Warriors will allocate its funds to charities who work with the disadvantaged, vulnerable, at risk and deserving Individuals. This will be accomplished through a network of 31 charities, agencies and programs that reach our target population which include homeless shelters, women’s refuges, youth crisis accommodation centres, drug and alcohol crisis centres, struggling families, the aged community and hospitality youth etc.
Our largest Charity partner is Lifeline Australia.
Lifeline provides access to crisis support, suicide prevention and mental health support services.
Somewhere in Australia there is a new call to Lifeline every minute.
Lifeline also provides national services and campaigns that promote emotional wellbeing, encourage help seeking, and address suicide prevention and awareness.
Graham Mabury 30 Charities in 30 Years
Charities chosen by Graham Mabury and the Directors of Mondo Community Warriors including-
Hospitality Youth, hospitality related needs and small charities that need a small amount of help each year due to their lack of fundraising support.
Mondo Community Warriors is a non-denominational, not-for-profit, income tax-exempt charity servicing disadvantaged charities and individuals in Australia. The Warriors exist to provide fundraising support to these key charities and individuals within Australia as a fast fundraising response by helping financially or creating fundraising events through hospitality related adventures to raise money. The Warriors are a volunteer driven organisation ensuring every dollar donated is passed directly to its recipient charities.
The Warriors employ no staff and have no office overheads ensuring they meet its founding principles.
Being one of the newest tax deductible charities in Australia, we will be building our partnerships with companies, associations and individuals during the coming years. We hope you will choose to become one of our partners in this endeavour and welcome corporate and individual support.
