My accountant sent me to Christina 11 years ago. Best instruction he ever gave me and the smartest thing I ever did! I now look forward to retirement with confidence.  I tell everyone about her.

Social Giving and Philanthropy

Australians have a proud history of charitable giving. Social giving and philanthropy are increasingly becoming a way for successful people to give back to their community.

There are many ways to achieve charitable pursuits. What form of structure this takes will depend entirely on your objectives. Whether you are considering making a personal donation, or wish to set up Prescribed Private Funds which allow you more control over how your funds will be utilised, we can help you navigate through the important issues.

Blue Edge Financial Planning is also committed to giving back to the community. Caring for people that we come in contact with: our clients, our employees, our family and our wider community, forms part of our core values.  Having a business purpose which extends beyond the delivery of services and making profits is an important element that defines the The Blue Edge Difference. Sheila Johnson (CARE ambassador) eloquently captured our vision when she said:

"True Giving is when you roll up your sleeves and connect your heart to the hearts of those you are helping".

Christina Cabrera (Director of Blue Edge Financial Planning) has made a commitment to support The Hunger Project.  View progress on the Hunger Project Domi-Achiansa project that Christina is involved with.

Following is an excerpt from The Hunger Project website:

Creating a World Free from Hunger  
by Empowering Women and Men to End Their Own Hunger

  • One of the failures of development has been the belief that the way to end hunger is to find a workable solution and replicate it. This fails because the source of the success is the human creativity that resulted in the solution, not the solution itself.
  • Extend the process, don't replicate the solution. Ending hunger will be achieved by extending the process of human empowerment, not by finding a model that works and replicating it.
  • In every village where hunger persists, human beings must be empowered to discover their own vision, express their own leadership, create their own solutions and work together to achieve their own success. At every level of society, the commitment of government officers, researchers, business people and citizen activists must be mobilized into a common front, transforming policies and structures so that all people have the chance to lead healthy and productive lives.
  • The principles and methodology of The Hunger Project are applicable at all levels of society. They are derived from what it means to be human, and designed to facilitate human beings working together effectively.
  • Discovering, applying and mastering this approach - being a catalyst in the worldwide phenomenon of ending hunger - is perhaps the greatest opportunity of this generation. From this perspective, one discovers that ending hunger is not fundamentally a problem to be solved, but a profound opportunity for unleashing the human spirit.
