Making a Difference & Contributing to our Community - Michelle Gibbings

Giving back is not just about making a donation. It is about making a sustainable difference and finding ways to contribute to our global community.

We live in an ever-changing world with lots of challenges and yet, the best of humanity is when we all come together and work for a common cause.

Positive change is something we can all contribute to, and Michelle is passionate about playing her part.

Every year, Michelle and her company donate a percentage of profits to not for profit organisations around the world. Deciding on who to support is determined by selecting a range of organisations from different quarters of the globe that do amazing work.

These include:

  • Animal welfare - Because all animals deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. With many species disappearing at an alarming rate through natural disasters and our impact on the planet, we truly need to do more.
  • Planet Earth - It’s simple really, if we don’t take responsibility for the planet that we live on, then who will?
  • Education - Education fosters success. It is the key to helping break the poverty cycle and to giving people a hand up to be the best that they can be.
  • Health - It is our basic human right to be adequately cared for and looked after, especially in war ravaged countries where support is needed the most.

Based on these areas of interest, the three not for profit organisations Michelle currently supports are:
