“I donated to Curtin Cares because I could see my donation would create immediate impact and change. Reading the story of Stephanie Levy, a student who is studying to be a paramedic but lost her job due to COVID-19 made me decide to donate, as she’s facing a lot of change and uncertainty right now.
“I hope my donation helps her and others like her overcome some of the financial challenges students are facing, [so that they] don’t give up on achieving their academic dreams.
“Donating made me feel more connected to the Curtin community… If the global pandemic has shown us anything, it is how interconnected we really are. We are in this together and I believe we should do what we can to help each other.
“If you are in the position to donate, please consider supporting Curtin Cares; you just never know, the student you support today might be the paramedic saving your life tomorrow!”

“It is my honour to make this humble contribution as a proud member of the Curtin community. We will support Curtin, as always, to combat the challenges we are now facing together. I feel it is important, now more than ever, to help others in need at this critical time. We need to support each other as we all navigate our way through the crisis.”

“We are all in this together. I believe we are all one entity… [Giving to Curtin Cares] was about gifting a smile or warming someone’s heart; and I also gifted myself great joy.”
