As part of their campaign to encourage Australians to sponsor a child, World Vision have conducted a national survey to determine the most charitable suburbs in the country.
The survey collated those suburbs that were the most generous in supporting World Vision, ranked according to median weekly household income.
The findings revealed that those most charitable were not from affluent suburbs.
Toowoomba, QLD ($918) topped the list, closely followed by Glen Waverley,VIC ($1,233) and Mosman, NSW ($1,903).
Tim Costello, Chief Executive Officer for World Vision said that the survey showed that those postcodes with a lower median weekly household income were more than keeping up with their more affluent neighbours when it came to digging deep, showing that levels of income do not determine people’s generosity and compassion for the poor.
“You don’t have to earn a lot of money or live in the most affluent suburbs in Australia to make a significant difference to the lives of these children,” Mr Costello said.
With child sponsors accounting for less than two percent of the total population of Australia, the survey was designed to highlight that a little contribution can go a long way.
“Whatever family you’re from, World Vision encourages your family to sponsor a child today and become part of a nationwide challenge to make a difference to the thousands of children living in poverty across the world,” said Mr Costello.
