It was a joy to speak to Tim Diamond from the Cotton On Foundation, Not only is he a Proud Geelong Supporter like myself, but he was such a lovely guy and I really enjoyed our interview.

It wasn't until we spoke did I understand the extent of the good work the Cotton On Foundation is doing around the world.  They have had the such a huge in fact on the lives of others less fortunate then us.
Their philosophy is to help others help themselves. "Don't give them the fish to eat, Give them the tools and skills to catch their own fish for a life time"
It works and is illustrated in the impact their good work is having.
Take a listen to my interview with Tim to learn more.

Thank you Tim and Go the Cats!

The Cotton On Foundation is passionately driven by the Cotton On team to create sustainable change in the environment and lives of those in need.

It's aim is raise funds through the sale of charity items, such as reusable shopping bags, water bottle and bracelets my favourite.
With these funds they assist several projects and other charities

We’re supporting the village of Mannya in Uganda with funding for health, education, infrastructure and sustainability. The village is suffering with poverty and HIV and was once deemed ‘Mission Impossible’, but with support from The Cotton On Foundation, Mannya is now full of hope and is becoming Mission Possible.
The KIDS Foundation is a national charity running Injury Prevention and Recovery Programs. They run camps for burns survivors through the year that offer a support network with hope, courage and friendship to burns survivors. The Cotton On Foundation sponsors children to attend these camps and send our staff as volunteers on camps.
We’re supporting the redevelopment of the Geelong Hospital Children’s Ward by underpinning the $7.4 million project which is receiving no government funding. Click the icons below to find out how we’re assisting and what it means for the Children’s Ward.
Our ‘Talk About It’ campaign, incorporated a range of 12 t-shirts to raise awareness for Beyond Blue’s depression initiative. With celebrity designed tees and an amazing interactive live music element by Temper Trap available only with a unique code upon purchase, these tees were hugely popular!
