The award recognises and celebrates the generosity of working Australians. This program was launched by Prime Minister Turnbull in 2014 and this campaign is now it’s third year and is supported by leading employers, charities and community organisations.

Macquarie Telecom Group partnered with United Way Australia, a not for profit social purpose organisation that helps children and young people in Australia. The two organisations came up with a communications plan to refresh the appeal of giving under the ‘Gift for Reading’. This effort resulted in a campaign featuring posters, email templates, and personalised letters encouraging staff giving new and used books to young Australians in need. The campaign resulted in a 29% increase in donations and the company now has more than a third of it’s workforce signed on.

All in all a great effort for a worthy cause, supporting children with books and learning resources for a lifetime of success.
