Our Giving Back campaign for 2023 was a huge success and truly highlighted the endless generosity and altruism of our ACA members. This initiative, which resonated deeply with the ethos of giving and support, stood out for its extraordinary success, primarily driven by the heart-warming kindness of ACA members. Throughout the campaign, ACA members actively engaged in collecting and distributing donations, a gesture that significantly reinforced the sense of community and solidarity within the chiropractic profession here in Australia.
The contributions, generously provided by ACA members, patients, and community members, included a diverse selection of items such as toys, non-perishable goods, clothing, various food items, and toiletries, reflecting the wide-ranging support and involvement of the community in this initiative. The success of the campaign also highlighted the power of collective effort and the impact small acts of kindness can achieve, reinforcing the ACA’s commitment to fostering a culture of empathy and support within the chiropractic community.
ACA member, Dr Roi Cheng, Clinical Director of Croydon Chiropractic Centre takes great delight in participating in the campaign annually and this year was able to raise just under $1,000 in cash donations and over 240 toys!
“We just love doing our little part in bringing a smile to people’s faces during the holiday season. In fact, one of our chiropractors, Dr Giri Prasetya has been so touched by this initiative that he will be bringing the Giving Back campaign back to Jakarta, Indonesia, when he moves there next year to start his own practice!” says Dr Cheng.
