Giving Creates Harmony

Welcome to the September edition of the Make a Change eNewsletter.


Everyone can create harmony in our community.  Make a Change happens with individuals, local council, community groups, not for profits and commercial organisations.


In Central Victoria the digital studio, Design Experts with Tim Gentle, get the impact of giving without receiving.  Giving unites his team and positions the business to be integral within their community. Find out more about Design Expert's Working in Harmony program.

We talk to the amazing couple Megan Darcy and Ben Hutcheson who empowered themselves to make a change through knowing who they are and what they can give.

The journey to making a change isn't always straight forward!  Let's Nut It Out is our latest initiative that brings changemakers together over lunch to share and nut out collectively move projects forward.

Are you a social entrepreneur looking for a home in Bendigo?  The Synergize Hub are offering twelve months of office space to support you!
