The Good News
At Good360 the impact created on the communities we provide for is the heart for why we do what we do. That is why we encourage our members to share impact stories, in order to tell our product donors and partners how their donations have made a difference in communities across Australia.
Congratulations to our Member of the Month, Human Appeal Australia, who have worked to distribute aid to flood-affected communities, and collaborated with organisations to ensure maximum reach and impact. Recently, the Human Appeal teams from Sydney and Brisbane made a visit to Lismore and Mullumbimby to not only distribute aid to families affected by the floods, but to also make generous donations to local organisations. Read more about Human Appeal and their other efforts that help Australians in need.
As a Good360 member, we encourage you to share how the products you have received have made an impact on your local community so product donors, their team, and other Good360 partners can see firsthand how these goods have made a difference. This can be done by writing an impact story, which is available on your dashboard when you log into your account.
Congratulations to our Member of The Month The Big Umbrella Foundation, whose flood relief efforts have been an incredible source of help during the 2022 Floods, operating out of Lismore to provide new goods to communities on the ground. They have worked tirelessly to distribute furniture, and are continuing to help rebuild homes well after the media spotlight has dimmed. Read on to see their story and latest achievement, delivering donated furniture from Harvey Norman and Sherman to homes up in Lismore.

With the help of students from the University of Wollongong, we were able to host our 7th Birthday Event. Through collaboration and teamwork the day was a success, with guests including charity members, Members of Parliament, and board members able to see the inner workings of the Smithfield ReDistribution Centre.
Good360 was founded on the concept that in Australia there are brand new goods not being used, that can be redirected to help people in need. As an organisation we have grown, over the last seven years, to help over 3000 charities and disadvantaged schools get access to brand new products to help their communities.
