Our Charity


Shade Tree Initiative is a non-for-profit organisation founded by Kate and her husband Rob to invite each of us to:

  • Share kindness.
  • Do good.
  • Help others.

Be someone’s Shade Tree. Your kindness makes a difference!

Its that time of the year again! Time to clean out our cupboards and gather our old beanies or donate

Winter is coming! It’s time to help our desert mob and First Nations people here in Australia!

How can you support??

It’s simple! These 3 things are within our power!

  1. Clean out your wardrobes and donate your good quality beanies, socks and gloves to be mailed to remote communities in need!
  2. Donate $20! This will buy a heavy duty 50% wool 50% cotton blanket and have it delivered to a vulnerable person in need.
  3. Start a collection in your area and be a part of our ‘Warmed with Love’ Shade Tree Initiative to keep our mob warm!

When you deposit into Shade Tree’s account 100% of your donation buys blankets because good humans are donating their time to make this happen behind the scenes.
All of our volunteers are mamas who already work full time, but each of them know that we need each other, and as women we hold the power to make a difference in the lives of others.

Every $20 buys 1 warm blanket.
