The Smith Family
The Smith Family is the largest children’s education charity helping young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed at school, so they can create better futures for themselves.
Their flagship Learning for Life program currently supports around 50,000 young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed at school, in three distinct ways. They provide financial support for school essentials, like uniforms and books. They provide access to additional learning programs before and after school – tailored to each child’s individual needs. And they match each child with a dedicated coach at The Smith Family to help them get to school, stay at school and go on to further training or work.
This proven three-pronged approach is equipping these children with the motivation, resilience and life skills they need to complete their schooling and go on to better futures.

The Foodbank Hunger Report 2019 revealed that one in five Australians have experienced food insecurity at some point in the last 12 months. This means that for 21% of Australia’s population, there has been at least one time in the last year when they didn’t have enough food for themselves or their family and could not afford to buy more food. It’s hard to believe this is happening in the ‘lucky country’, where we produce enough food for 60 million people.
Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities that are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides 77 million meals a year (210,000 meals a day) to more than 2,400 charities around the country, accounting for over 70% of all food received by charities from food rescue organisations.

THE PROSPECT PROJECT STORY.
I’m Shannon, reality TV addict and mac n cheese connoisseur who is just white-knuckling my way through motherhood. I can’t wear white cos I’ll definitely spill food on myself, but also because I think I’d look like I’m in a tampon commercial and I always say the wrong thing (see tampon related statement).
I believe karma is real and Tupac is still alive. I have an irrational fear of clowns and speaking on the phone.
We're Weird + We Like It
WORD ON THE STREET…
“For a small business, it has such a huge impact! Where else can you buy something to treat yourself that not only smells great, can make you laugh and gives back to the community through charitable donations plus recycles! If society thought more about who it invested in, supporting amazing companies like this, 2020 would be a walk in the park!”
“Just love the original and clever names of all the flavours, plus love that you support charities”
“I love the no f*cks given emails, I always read them just for the lols”
“It was love at first smell”
“I truly haven’t fallen in love with a candle brand like this for a while, honestly, the Melbourne scent is incredible and beats a lot of Diptyque and Maison Balzac scents!”
“Love, love, LOVE! Can’t wait to buy more”
“Mandatory candle ownership. Nothing compares. Do yourself a favour, your home, your friends a favour”
“The gingerbread candle has made my new house, four hours from my family, into a home”
“I’ve found it. The greatest candle ever made”
“Holy moly, these lil’ suckers are a candle-y game changer!
I can’t decide what I love more: the simple, on-trend, minimalist branding which speaks my (sassy) Love Language; the heavenly scents – with just a hint of ‘f*ck you’ vibes – that are so damn good I actually drooled into the Lemon Meringue Pie candle (#truestory); or the fact that a portion of each order goes to a deserving charity of my choice.
You may regret buying lots of things online – like that faux fur coat from eBay or some dodgy fake tan from Brazil – but stocking up on alllll the rad AF candles from The Prospect Project won’t be one of them.
Bravo, team. BRA-vo. *slow clap*”
“Beyond expectation. Not only do they smell incredibly divine but they look so fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Would it be acceptable to eat this?”
“Everyone loves unicorns right?”
“If this is what unicorn poo really smells like I want to bathe in it”
“After burning this to the bottom I can confidently say that if I had a pet unicorn I’d let it poo inside.”
“This amazing candle came today, I’m obsessed”
“I NEED MORE OF THESE CANDLES IN MY LIFE”
