Latest News, December 15 – Melbourne’s leading agency

By Joanna El-Hallal

Message From Andrew Salvo


In the lead up to Christmas, the team at Ray White Southbank have recently been sparing a thought for those who aren’t privileged enough to celebrate this festive season. This Christmas we are participating in a nationwide Ray White charity initiative “A Little Ray of Giving”. We have partnered up with the Mirabel Foundation who assist children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to illicit drug use and are now in the care of extended family (kinship care). Mirabel supports children aged 0-17 years and works at restoring a child’s sense of self-worth, belonging and hope for the future in order for them to reach their full potential as young adults. Mirabel believes that investing in children is the most compassionate and economic investment we can make. From the 1st of December, we encourage you to place a gift under our Christmas tree, located in the Foyer of Ray White Southbank at 11 Clarendon Street, Southbank (corner city Road). We have arranged for all of the gifts to be delivered to those children supported by the Mirabel foundation prior to Christmas. If you are interested in seeing the progress of our community campaign, please like our Facebook page. From all of us at Ray White Southbank, we’d like to thank everyone for their support over the past year, and wish you all a safe and happy festive season.

A Little Ray Of Giving

The inspiring Christmas campaign will see the team at Ray White Southbank partner with the Mirabel Foundation to help disadvantaged children who may need a little extra light in their festive season.The team is calling on locals to embrace the giving season and dig deep for children in their community who need it most by dropping in presents to its offi ce at the corner of Clarendon St and City Rd. With the campaign now underway, Ray White Southbank principal Andrew Salvo encouraged locals to come by and drop in a gift. “This gift drive is a really simple way to help put a smile on the face of children and families who may need some extra cheer at this time of year,” he said. “All you need to do is wrap up your present and drop it under the tree in our office.”2015 marks the fourth consecutive year that Ray White has run the initiative across Australia and New Zealand. Last year saw nearly 300 offices across both countries help raise 15,000 Christmas gifts for disadvantaged families.Mr Salvo said those who wished to donate a gift just needed to inform the team if the gift was for a boy or girl and nominate an age group. He said even the smallest gifts could make the biggest difference to families who are struggling at an expensive time of year.
