Charities

Farm Angels (former Drought Angels) was established in 2014 in a response to the needs of our primary producers impacted by extended periods of drought. Since then, Farm Angels has expanded to provide not only financial assistance, food hampers, care packs and mental wellbeing support but also hope. 

Since 2014, Farm Angels have provided nearly 1,000 personal wellness checks, over $250,000 in direct financial support to farmers, provided goods to farmers and rural communities to the value of $300,000 and celebrated the contribution of their volunteers, who has provided over 2,200 hours of direct volunteer hours to assist those in need.

The word “Kintsugi” literally means “golden joinery” and refers to the ancient Japanese artform of repairing broken and cracked ceramics with a special tree sap lacquer dusted with powdered gold, silver or platinum. Thus, a beautiful and unique work of art emerges with the cracks and breaks now part of its beauty. The philosophy of Kintsugi honours life experiences whether good or bad. By highlighting the repair of cracks or breaks in a ceramic piece, the events of the past become part of its beauty. There is no attempt to conceal the damage, the repair literally illuminates each scar.

The stories of the Kintsugi Heroes celebrate the scars we gather over time; the breaks, knocks and wrinkles which should not be hidden as they create our own unique beauty. When we heal and overcome these wounds, we provide inspiration and encouragement to others and show them that they can also overcome their challenges and become whole. Our stories will cover a wide range of adversity topics including abuse, addiction, crime, dysfunctional family, career or business failure, grief and loss, financial hardship, mental illness, physical illness, relationship breakdown and more.

Our Kintsugi Heroes have a wide variety of backgrounds across genders, cultures, languages and ages.
The hero stories are available through audio and video podcasts and also available in E-books and printed books.
