SPONSORSHIP & COMMUNITY
Helping others leads to higher level of happiness
Performing an act of kindness for someone or a charity with a need and asking for nothing in return is Cirrus’ guiding principle of Paying it Forward. Understanding how fortunate we are and how good it feels to give back to the community leads to a higher level of happiness to all involved.
Cirrus has signed on to sponsor Telethon for the next 5 years, which includes significant funding as well as setting up and managing the Call Centre. Cirrus will be responsible for the entire IT setup, including cabling, internet access/WIFI and provision and install of more than 140 laptops for use on the weekend, as well as provide IT support onsite to assist over the Telethon weekend.
Cirrus backed the Lighthouse Foundation who provide homeless young people from backgrounds of long-term neglect and abuse, with a home, a sense of family, and around-the-clock therapeutic care that is individually tailored, trauma informed and proven to work.
Cirrus donated printers, tablets, backpacks and coffee cups so the Lighthouse Foundation can run on a daily basis with a few essentials.
Cirrus also donated 4 Samsung Galaxy Tablets at their Customer Appreciation Gala so the Lighthouse Foundation could raffle them off. This raised $1800 which Cirrus then matched. At the end of the night, there was $4000.00 raised.
Cirrus recently volunteered their time as part of National Homelessness week (7–13 August 2017) for the Lighthouse Foundation, #StickItToHomelessness in the Melbourne CBD handing out stickers and creating awareness. The 44,000 stickers represent the number of young people who are homeless in Australia on any given night.
