At Cali, not only are we big on keeping you guys healthy but we also like to keep an eye on our local community. Shout out to some of our favourite events such as One Wave’s Fluro Friday’s or the Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim that offer great opportunities for society to band together and make a difference.
Right now, our team is involved in amazing causes such as Coogee Dippers and BARBECURE – two initiatives that were simply too good not to share! To gain insight into what these guys pull together, have a read about them below and if you love them as much as we do, hit up their websites and see how you can get involved… because nothing beats giving back!
COOGEE DIPPERS – AUTISM SWIM
In the event you found yourself down at Coogee between 8am-9am over the last few Sunday’s (after visiting Cali for your Sunday smoothie bowl of course!) you would have caught some amazing volunteers cheering on a bunch of little ‘nippers’ legends down on Coogee Beach! The smile on all these kids faces surely made a great start to plenty of our Sundays.
About Coogee Dippers & Autism Swim: These guys run an organisation that combines the expertise of Autism Specialists, Behaviour Specialists, Occupational Therapists and Swimming Teachers. This year they held “Coogee Dippers”. ”Dippers” is a modified Nippers program for those children with a disability or that have additional needs. The young Dippers participants are taught vital skills-development in a fun, supportive and safe environment, with a main aim of promoting a sense of community, acceptance and inclusivity. Talk about a dream team!
How Cali’s Involved: With support from Cali Press and other awesome peeps such as Coogee Life Saving Club and Coogee Minnows, the program was free of charge to all families of the participants! Our team also offered up a bunch of in-cafe vouchers so that the volunteers, families and kids could cool down after their busy morning with Cali Press goodies.
BARBECURE – CURE CANCER
One Australian dies every 12 minutes from cancer. This is a shocking statistic that only research can put a stop to…that’s where BARBECURE comes in! Over summer, Cure Cancer launched BARBECURE; a new national awareness and fundraising initiative aimed at inspiring all Australians to help fund a cure for cancer by hosting a BARBECURE BBQ! So if you love a BBQ as much as we do, invite all your mates and fam over for a cheeky barbe in the spirit of gaining donations that will go towards such an important Australian foundation.
About Cure Cancer & BARBECURE: Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated entirely to research. These guys identify, assess and fund the research that has the best possible chance of finding a cure. These guys want all types of cancer cured and that’s why they’ve been front and centre in the fight against disease for fifty years. They have funded over 483 research grants to more than 316 individual researchers. To help them achieve this, they have a collective team of passionate researchers, donors, fundraisers and partners all working together to support the mission to Cure Cancer Australia. BARBECURE is one of those motivating fundraisers.
How Cali’s Involved: Our team love spending time in the sun and throwing a shrimp on the barbe as much as we love cold pressing juice. For that reason, along with many others, we couldn’t think of a more fitting cause to be a part of. That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to offer up delicious cold pressed juices for all the hardworking volunteers that have brought BARBECURE to life over summer. Cheers team!
If you have a cause or charity that you think Cali Press could be apart of, we’d love to hear from you and get involved. Get in touch with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
