👏 Thank you, Upstanding! 👏

A group of students studying Business at Bond University, called Upstanding, decided to fundraise for us as part of a project they undertook in their studies. 🤩

They had no idea who we were or what we did until they came across us on Google, but still chose us as their charity partner because of the clear impact we have on regional students. 💪

And thanks to their efforts, designing and selling laptop stands, we have more in the kitty to continue helping our rural and regional students access post school education and employment. 🛣️
