Charity Work

Making the World a Better and Safer Place for People and Dogs

We have been working with local and worldwide charities for over 30 years. In the past our donations were made anonymously. We now reach out to clients and friends to invite others to get involved. Our charity work used to focus on canine organizations such as the SPCA and Respect-a-bull. More recently, our interest has shifted to humanitarian and environmental charities.

Accountability is always a concern when choosing a charity. How will the money be spent? Will it actually make its way to those in need? The charities listed below are organizations with long-standing track records for many years.

Our Place

Our Place has been established since 1986 and is one of the foremost charitable organizations in Victoria providing help to the homeless. My goal for this charity is to continue to provide financial support and time whenever possible. I would also like to encourage others to get involved even if it means a few hours of volunteer time.

Operation Out Reach

I met John and Judy Pex from Elat, Israel in 1982. They have been involved in numerous charitable causes since that time. One of the key projects that my family has been contributing to in Israel is in helping Sudanese refugees find jobs and housing. Many of these refugees traveled on foot from Sudan to Israel and risked their lives on the journey.
