Our approach to community contributions is both formal and informal. While we have more formal activities in place, we actively encourage staff to bring to our attention causes close to their hearts and promote involvement within the firm.
On top of this Michael Walsh, CEO of Walshs, continues to get out of his comfort zone by hiking around the world in order to raise money for charity. Some of the hikes completed include Base Camp Mount Everest, the Kokoda Trail, Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as many other formidable peaks in many locations around the world.
Walshs would like to invite you to join us on a life changing travel experience.
In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Walshs will be travelling to Fiji in October, to spend seven days building homes for families in need.
As an organisation we have been so fortunate to live in an incredible country and work alongside great people. We want to give back as an organisation and we believe our impact can go beyond the houses we build! We’re expanding our horizons, broadening our skills and connecting with the wider community. Our work will build a better future for not only the families we will support but also a better future for Walshs.
You may have heard of Habitat for Humanity: a non-profit organisation which works in partnership with low income families to build simple, decent, affordable houses in Australia and around the world. Habitat work goes beyond just home building, they provide land security, access to clean water and education and an opportunity. Through donations and the use of volunteer labour (like ours), Habitat for Humanity to date has been able to build over 800,000 homes in more than 94 countries.
We know that we can do more together than as individuals, and working together on this project, side-by-side, sharing this experience, we’ll develop a deeper understanding of each other.
However, we cannot do it alone – only with your support can we make this difference. We would like to invite you to be a part of this amazing opportunity and join us to build a home for a Fijian family from the 1 – 8 October 2016.
We hope you can be part of Walshs Build Fiji 2016.
