Rize Up – Domestic Violence Charity
For almost 3 years, Latex Mattress Australia has provided ongoing support for Rizeup. Rizeup Australia is a community-driven organisation of passionate men and women, dedicated to supporting the many families affected by domestic and family violence. They have created various programs to support and empower the brave families via the specialist domestic and family violence organisations; from helping to create a new home for victims fleeing a violent household and supporting children in their healing process, to raising much-needed funds for families left with nothing but the clothes on their back.
This year with COVID-19 RizeUp has been hit particularly hard with the number of requests for assistance increasing by over 30%.
In October, 2020, our team attended a charity luncheon to raise much needed funds for RizeUp and together our table raised almost $3k through donations and prizes.
