Appco Australia supports young Aussies

Recently, Shane Ward trekked an incredible 135 kilometres from Cape Leeuwin to Cape Naturaliste in Western Australia to raise money for a charity that supports young people, and our staff were keen to support his efforts.

Shane owns a marketing company Appco Australia sub-contracts to supply specialised services for our clients’ campaigns, and his charitable mission inspired Appco staff to donate $1,000 to his chosen charity, LifeChanger Foundation.

“As a father, I felt compelled to be part of this trek – I believe in supporting teenagers and giving them an opportunity to be their best – that’s what LifeChanger Foundation is all about,” said Shane.

Shane has raised over $3,000 for the charity which provides a range of programs for young people and a website with inspiring content, ambassador messaging, and direct coaching to support adolescents who are faced with serious issues including youth suicide, mental illness, and addiction.

“Yes, walking 135 kilometres for six days was a huge challenge, mentally and physically – and I was definitely out of my comfort zone – but it’s an experience I will never forget. I know that even my small effort will provide big opportunities for young people who need support,” says Shane.

The donation to LifeChanger Foundation was made via our workplace giving program, The Appco Gives Back Foundation. Each month, Appco Australia employees nominate not-for-profit charities and causes they would like to support. Since the initiative began, the Foundation has donated to various charities from indigenous programs and youth outreach support to medical research.

The Appco Gives Back Foundation is governed by Good2Give, which is a not-for-profit organisation registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission that helps businesses and donors to give.
