Giving back is important work

We're conscious that we live in a world where there are major disparities between those who have, and those who do not. So we're doing our part to give back, and donating $1 from every purchase of Kester Black to a deserving cause.

Help women escape domestic violence

Existing services cannot meet the demand for emergency crisis accommodation for women who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. More than 50% of women seeking shelter are turned away every night. Across Australia, this equates to over 50,000 women nightly.

Women’s Community Shelters are dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay.

Give safe shelter to a person seeking asylum

Families who have fled violence, war and persecution are often then stripped of their basic rights in Australia, while waiting for an outcome to their legal status. People often live this - in limbo for years. During this time, more and more people, without the right to work, become destitute. Women and children are especially vulnerable during this time.

For the past 16 years, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) has supported and empowered over 3,000 refugees and people seeking asylum every year, helping provide a warm bed, food, education, employment support and much more. The ASRC gives them hope for a safer, brighter future.

Supporting Syrian refugees

More than six years of war in Syria has forced over 5 million people to flee their homes, leaving jobs, family and friends. They are desperate to escape the violence. Thousands have died at sea or on land.

Survivors are filled with uncertainty as they travel, sometimes for weeks, in search of a safe place to call home.

CARE is providing lifesaving essentials including clean water, food, medicines and shelter to families in refugee camps in Europe, the Middle East and those still trapped in Syria.
