Visit to Sydney Children’s Hospital with Delta Society Australia

What an incredibly moving, inspiring and life changing experience the Sheargold Foundation had yesterday through having the opportunity to visit the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwich with Delta Society Australia. 
It was great to see first hand the impact the Volunteers and their dogs are having on the lives of the children who are receiving treatment. Words cannot describe the look on the children’s faces when they saw little Winnie the Shih Tzu x Poodle coming towards them to say hello. 
For many of these children it is one of the only times in their day when they get to forget about everything they are going through. Sometimes all we need is a warm, furry hug from a four-legged friend to know everything is going to be ok. 
Keep up the amazing work Delta Society Australia

Sheargold Foundation hoping to inspire philanthropy in the younger generation

Delta Society has been awarded one of the first Sheargold Foundation grants to support more therapy dog teams and bring the joy of animal companionship to those who need it most.

The Sheargold Foundation gives back to the community and supports inspiring and worthwhile organisations. Lauren Sheargold, CEO is hoping that the work of The Sheargold Foundation will encourage younger generations to support non-profit organisations. “In today’s economic environment, it is hard for younger people to pursue their philanthropic interests, however The Sheargold Foundation is hoping to inspire others to give to charities and reap the benefits of being able to assist those in need. The benefactors of tomorrow just don’t happen, they have to be cultivated. We hope that giving back will start to become part of the younger generation’s value system”.

Delta Society is excited to be working in partnership with such a forward thinking Foundation. This grant will enable us to recruit and place more Sydney therapy dog teams in hospitals, aged care facilities and mental health units.
