With the collaboration of a group of incredible volunteers, #lembradecasa was born. The aim was to raise AU$25,000 to be used to purchase food and create hampers locally from significantly impacted areas of Brazil.
The 3-week campaign was a huge success. The campaign reached its target, raising $28,300, which created 1,282 food hampers, benefiting more than 5,000 people directly.
In 2021 the team came together again, doubling up the campaign targets; again it was exceeded with AU$57,300 raised. In two years, #lembradecasa raised AU$86,000 and distributed over 55 tons of food in Brazil.
The following year we dedicated our energies to registering CASA as an Australian charity. Due to the incredible due diligence across the two campaigns, the ACNC recognised our organisation as credible and provided us with DGR status, allowing individuals and corporations to claim donations as tax deductions.
