As you are probably well aware, we are the carers of a Guide Dog brood by the name of Helen. She is an integral part of our business and we are thankful to have her in our life. She forms part of our belief in giving back to the community, but we feel that even this is not enough. We know we can do more, give more financially, and are now in a position to create a BOgear Community Fund.
Give $1 to our Community Fund and we will match it dollar for dollar!
Yes, you read that correctly! Give $1 to our fund, and we will match it, resulting in $2 being given! Our Community Fund is currently supporting Guide Dogs Queensland.
Every dollar donated to Guide Dogs Queensland is directed to their services. GDQ receive less than seven percent in Government funding for some specific rehabilitation services, but none is allocated towards their Guide Dog training program. Instead they rely heavily on community support. For reference, it costs around $30,000 to turn a pup into a fully fledged guide dog!
