Giving Back

For us, corporate social responsibility means more than giving back financially. We look to our charity partners for opportunities of first-hand engagement with the people and causes they care about and represent. Our partner Igniting Change says – “Bridging the gap that separates people experiencing problems from those who are in a position to help can be life changing for everyone”. We believe personal connection to an issue gives us deeper empathy and insight than we might ever gain from reading about it.

As such, the Light Warrior team get actively involved with the following organisations:

  • Igniting Change – Our Team attend ‘Meet the People, Feel the Issues’ sessions, and have hosted IC events at our office.
  • Children’s Ground – We attended an on-country experience with a First Nations community on Mparntwe county (Alice Springs).
  • B Team Community – As well as being a proud Bcorp we’re part of a Mental Wellbeing Culture Survey through the Australiasian B Team to contribute to improving better whole-person health and workplace wellbeing.

The Lightfolk Foundation

The Lightfolk Foundation has been established by Helen and Radek Sali for the ‘Advancement of Humankind’.

To date, the Lightfolk Foundation has provided financial support to the following organisations and initiatives:

Igniting Change

Light Warrior is a proud supporter of Igniting Change, a deliberately tiny charity, passionate about sparking big, positive change for people doing it tough in our communities. “We listen and stay open minded. We value the voices of people who have lived experience, whose diverse backgrounds enrich our perspective.”

Igniting Change has given Light Warrior the opportunity to meet people in challenging circumstances and hear about their situation first-hand – “When you listen you give someone a voice.” They’ve also given Light Warrior the privilege of building relationships with courageous individuals and organisations on the front-line of providing services, care and support to those in need.
