MOVE WITH PURPOSE
MAKING GOOD DEEDS REACH FURTHER
This holiday season, MATE chose to do something different. We wanted to make good deeds reach further. At a time of the year when people traditionally come together, we wanted to shine a light and raise awareness of those who live in the margins of our communities.
MOVE WITH PURPOSE is a partnership between MATE and Haircuts4Homeless, a community-based charity that instils self-esteem and acknowledgement to those less fortunate than ourselves. Our film explores the motivation for one of their volunteers, Tom Forde, in joining the charity and what he has discovered in his day-to-day work helping others.
Given the value MATE places on self-expression and the freedom of individuality, it is sobering to see that this is a privilege not readily afforded to everyone. It is invaluable to learn new perspectives that challenge our outlooks and perceptions.
We are supporting Haircuts4Homeless with four MATEs to help them navigate the built-up environment of the city. As we move into the new year, we hope that this will be the first of many such partnerships we cultivate.
