A Leaf out of Bunnings Book



 Ahhhh Bunnings, a massive business with almost as big a heart!

Now this is NOT an advert for Bunnings, but  more so a pat on the back for a huge organisation that a massive amount of good to the local communities.

Anyone who has visited Bunnings on a weekend knows all about the Sausage Sizzles. 

But Bunnings does sooo much more for the locals.

The Bunnings Community Involvement approach is built on the principal that they are part of the local communities in which they operate.They focus their efforts on giving meaningful support where it makes a difference.

And what a massive difference they make!
Here are but a few things each Bunnings store does in their local communities (other then Sausage sizzles):
Returned service men and women
  • Allow Community groups/Charities to run cake stalls, 
           tin rattling and raffles in-store



  • Participate in needed projects at communities sites ( ie: create playground for kinders etc)  hands on                               senior citizens

    • Donate items for raffles etc
    • Create and host regular free, in-shop projects for speciality groups ( people with disabilities, children etc).
    • Have a Community  groups/Charities awareness day,where these organisation have an opportunity to speak about what they do and raise community awareness and some money.
    • Have events to celebrate and thank Community groups/Charities and give them valuable networking opportunities.
    • Promote the Community groups/Charities who are hosting the sausage sizzles on their website 
    IMAGINE IF EVERY LARGE ORGANISATION TOOK A LEAF OUT OF BUNNINGS BOOK AND GAVE BACK TO THEIR LOCAL COMMUNITIES IN THE SAME WAY.

    There would be much less need and much more equality, dignity and connection!

    Community groups and Charities would not have to be constantly begging for basics and looking for grants and donations.
    It is time for the big organisations in our local communities to start meaningfully putting back into their communities and truly become a part of their local communities. Lets Change
