BIANKO for Change
6 years ago we founded the BIANKO brand on supporting, empowering, and connecting women.
We are proud to launch BIANKO For Change, an endeavour aimed at raising awareness of the struggles faced by individuals and the environment globally and locally.
We founded the BIANKO For Change program to further empower our wonderful community to make a difference by offering them a way to give back.
We have partnered with the social enterprise, i=Change, to contribute to the purchase with purpose movement. Every time you purchase a BIANKO treasure, we will donate $1 to the below charity of your choice. Because your choice can change a life.
Our current charities:
To survive and heal
Ovarian cancer is the deadliest women’s cancer, with a 5-year survival rate of just 48%.
With no early detection test, women are often diagnosed late. Suddenly, women and their families are forced to deal with a poor prognosis and debilitating surgery.
Ovarian Cancer Australia' support is comprehensive and holistic, ensuring no woman walks alone. Face to face support groups, facilitated by trained health professionals, reduces a woman’s isolation, the mental health impact, empowering women to cope with cancer and its side effects.
Provide mentoring and support
In Australia today, 3 in 5 Australian students have experienced bullying, 1 in 10 are disengaged from education and, tragically, suicide is their highest cause of death. Young adults often need someone to support them on their journey.
Raise trains, then matches mentors with teenagers who would benefit most from an independent, caring adult who is there to listen – and be there just for them.
Working one-on-one, these mentors empower and support young people to better navigate life’s challenges, believe in themselves and find a path towards a purposeful life.
Raises’ vision is to offer mentors to all public secondary schools across Australia - and help build thriving communities.
Help prevent breast cancer
Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, and 9 Australians lose their life every day.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research to create a better tomorrow for all those impacted.
Our vision is simple: Zero Deaths from breast cancer. How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research - that helps us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately save lives.
Since 1994, when NBCF was first established, we have invested nearly $200M into almost 600 research projects. In that time, the death rates from breast cancer in Australia have reduced by 43% thanks in large part to research in prevention, early detection and new and improved breast cancer treatments.
"Female empowerment is at our core. Women should always feel beautiful, valued, respected and safe. Building awareness of the struggles faced by women is vital. We aim to use our platform to educate and offer a way to give back."
