CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN ACTION
One simple way to make a big difference
Your team has the power to drive social and environmental change. Did you know that millions of items of ‘unsold’ new clothing gets dumped into landfill every year? And that at the same time 12.99 million people right here in Australia live below the poverty line? Buying new clothes is something they only dream of.
Imagine what we could achieve if those clothes did NOT go to waste and instead were given to those in our community who are doing though.

Watch the video below to see how spending a few hours out of the office helping others helps lift team morale and boosts productivity.
“What a great way to help out the less fortunate. We managed to impact the lives of over 400 people. In just 3 hours, the Amazon team put dignity back into the hands of people who need it the most. We’re really all only 3 paychecks away from being them.”
I had the privilege of joining a team from AWS to help out Thread Together. Although it was only a few short hours, it was a fantastic spend of the teams time.
Looking forward to doing more with Thread Together and encourage you all to consider supporting this charity by making it your next team offsite activity. You won’t regret it.”-
“It was amazing to walk into the bright and colourful Thread Together warehouse, meeting the amazing team that work there and to hear their stories also. The vibe there is so inspiring and uplifting.
It’s made me realise how lucky we are and that we need to educate so many more people about what’s happening here in Australia.”
“It’s a very humbling experience. Humbling in that you were actually able to help deliver the road to positive change.“
“We need to give back to our community. Being able to do that as part of a large corporate organisation creates team building, awareness and it creates a sense of social justice. ”
