Thank you for choosing to start your day with a Chooseday mindset!
This Chooseday, we invite you to help Close The Gap.
GoodCompany acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land we work on today. We pay our respect to the past, present and future Elders of this nation and acknowledge that beneath the concrete, this land and its waterways have been nurtured for generations by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
National #ClosetheGap Day occurs on the third Thursday of March and this year, it falls on Thursday 16th March. Close The Gap Day celebrates the knowledge, connection and success of Aboriginal people and their health services whilst also calling on the government to 'close the gap' of the health and life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians within a generation.
Did you know? Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples still live, on average, 10-11 years less than non-Indigenous Australians. Stand with us in demanding for equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. You can join the Close The Gap campaign here. Speaking of uplifting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and culture, have you heard about the life-changing volunteer opportunity for Garma festival?
Be the change you want to see, get involved and support Closing The Gap. Psst - feel like doing some shopping... check out Clothing The Gaps. Thank you for choosing to do good this Chooseday.
