Poverty, hardship, homelessness, famine, long-term unemployment, disability, and injustice. There are too many people and communities in Australia and around the world that don't have the opportunities and future that most of us are able to take for granted.

Nobody has all the answers, and nobody can cure the world of all the troubles and oppression that so many people face each day. But every one of us can contribute in some way, no matter how small. At Beaumont Tiles, we believe that it is our social and moral obligation to support those that are less fortunate in any way that we can.

We are not a multi-national, mega-profit business, but we definitely take our commitment to our community seriously. We are keen to support communities and people that are not as lucky as we are. As a family owned business, we recognise that through support, caring, and a team spirit, we can all pull together to help others.

The company and the Board commit financial aid to many charitable organisations each year. This is done in a very private and personal way and we do not seek public recognition for that.

But, one organisation that we do support in an outwardly visible and public way is World Vision. As a company, we encourage all our staff and each branch to sponsor a child. Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for staff to regularly donate to charitable organisations, through automated payroll deductions. And the company matches that support dollar for dollar.

Please, if you are able to contribute to World Vision, or are able to sponsor a child, give it your genuine consideration. And remember, there are millions of people that are in need of help and assistance. Your support can save a life.

• Working with the community to improve economic opportunities.
• Constructing toilets and water tanks in schools, improving the health of families and children.
• Upgrading educational facilities in schools, including science laboratories.
• Introducing new farming methods and modern equipment to improve agricultural production.
• Conducting HIV and AIDS education and empowering the community to care for those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.
