The first of four $25,000 donations has been presented to the charity recipients of the 2015 MAX Employment campaign, 15,000 Stars for Christmas.

MAX Employment pledged to donate a total of $100,000 to four Australian charities as part of their 2015 jobs drive, and Queensland based charity Mates4Mates was the first recipient of a $25,000 donation.

Mates4Mates is dedicated to supporting current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members and families with physical or psychological wounds, injuries or illnesses as a result of their service.

MAX Employment Queensland General Manager Katrina Thompson said it was an honour to present the donation to the charity.

“Mates4Mates do amazing things to support current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members and their families.

“This donation will assist up to 12 injured ex-service men and women through their education and employment program, helping them find civilian jobs after their service,” Ms Thompson said.


The MAX 15,000 Stars for Christmas campaign set out to find 15,000 jobs for job seekers between October to December last year, and Ms Thompson said the 2015 campaign was their most successful to date.

“We smashed our target by almost 1,000 jobs, and we’re proud to support other organisations that work with vulnerable communities and assist with the transition back into the workforce,”
she said. 

The 15,000 Stars for Christmas campaign placed 15,939 in three months, with $100,000 in donations going towards Mates4Mates, the Luke Batty Foundation, Kids Helpline and the Adelaide Crows Children’s Foundation as part of the campaign.
