We’re proud to be connected with these meaningful causes and organisations.
Pamela Fruin, a dear friend of Julie's initiated the idea to create beanies for the nuns and disadvantaged young women of Bhutan. What began as a collaborative community project through Soroptimist International with women throughout Western Australia creating these red beanies, has grown into a deep and rewarding exchange.
Both for the women that lovingly create these hand made beanies and scarves, and for those who receive them. Journeys of the Spirit has agreed to continue supporting this SIWA project by delivering the beanies on each of our journeys to Bhutan. If you would like to contribute to this project in any way, please contact us.

The RSPCA is an independent, non-government community-based charity providing animal care and protection services.
The RSPCA’s mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. To achieve this, the RSPCA works to enforce animal cruelty laws and prompt new legislation where required. The RSPCA also operates animal care and adoption facilities, and seeks to raise community awareness regarding the humane treatment of animals.
The Telethon Kids Institute brings together community, researchers, practitioners, policy makers and funders, who share the mission to improve the health, development and lives of children and young people through excellence in research. Their goal is to build on their success and create a research institute that makes a real difference in our community, which will benefit children and families everywhere.
The Hunger Project’s goal is to end world hunger. Their approach is different – they see people living in hunger as the solution, not the problem. They shift the mindsets of women and men so they transform into leaders for the sustainable end of hunger. Then, through their programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, they empower people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.
