With Valentine’s Day upon us, singles from across the country can rest easier knowing that their PAW-fect partner may be closer than they think.

According to Seeing Eye Dogs’ manager of puppy development Jane Bradley, the not-for-profit will host online and in-person events for Aussies looking to open their hearts to a Seeing Eye Dogs puppy.

“We’re seeking compassionate individuals to fall in-love with giving back by becoming a volunteer puppy carer. With the recent birth of several litters, there are 40 puppies looking to be placed in loving homes as soon as possible,” Jane said.

“Not only do puppy carers play an integral role in the early development and socialisation of Seeing Eye Dogs, but they also provide life-changing support to Australians who are blind or have low vision.”

City-goers in Melbourne’s CBD can drop into 530 Collins Street to ‘speed date’ a Puppy Development Trainer and a Seeing Eye Dog puppy to obtain the information they’ll need to become a volunteer.

For those that aren’t based in Melbourne, the team at Seeing Eye Dogs will run a Facebook Live-stream from its puppy centre so Aussies can tune-in and listen to the experts, while watching adorable puppies play.

To sign up to become a puppy carer and share the love this Valentine’s Day, fill in the application form via the Seeing Eye Dogs website: https://sed.visionaustralia.org/puppy-caring.

The race for all humans: Australian Red Cross calling on Aussies this March

Australian Red Cross is calling on you to be a champion for humanity this March. At any time during the month, The Human Race asks participants to run, ride, relay, roll or even row for their fellow human. Australian Red Cross Chief Funding Officer, Jason Laufer, said The Human Race, in its second year, is a campaign designed to give Australians the opportunity to show their support and do their bit for those less fortunate. “Unlike most other fun runs or walks we’re not asking people to compete against each other or even squeeze all their activity into one day.…

Less than 8 cents in every dollar of tax revenue collected in G20 countries comes from taxes on wealth, says Oxfam

A “war on fair taxation” has seen tax rates on the wealth and income of the richest collapse. For every $1 raised in tax in G20 countries, less than 8 cents comes from taxes on wealth. The top 1 percent of earners in G20 countries have seen the top tax rates on their income fall by roughly a third in recent decades, while their share of national income has increased by 45 percent. A modest wealth tax of up to 5 percent on the G20’s richest individuals could bring in nearly $1.5 trillion a year. Less than eight cents in…

“Golden time” seasonal farming production destroyed and lost in northern Gaza amid mounting fears of worsening hunger and starvation

Gaza farmers’ two-month-long “golden time” of agricultural production has been destroyed by Israel’s military bombing and sealing of northern Gaza, ruining the enclave’s richest farmlands which are one of its biggest sources of fruit and vegetables. With Israel’s actions also severely restricting humanitarian aid, the loss of local agricultural production is worsening malnutrition and hunger, leading to starvation and fears of worst to come for the 300,000 people estimated still now living in northern Gaza. “The risk of genocide is increasing in northern Gaza because the Government of Israel is ignoring one of the key provisions of the International Court…
