Pinchapoo

Pinchapoo is proudly responsible for creating a world first cheeky hotel toiletry ‘pinching’ movement almost 10 years ago… and for good reason! Using this concept, they have redistributed more than 1.6 MILLION otherwise wasted personal hygiene products to hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged men, women and children around Australia.

Pinchapoo have a collection point in our office at 122 Errol Street North Melbourne where you can donate hotel toiletries or full size toiletries and other goods for those in need.

Lort Smith

Lort Smith operates the largest animal hospital in Australia. They aim to provide exceptional veterinary care irrespective of a person’s circumstances, offering discounts for health care card holders and pensioners as well as payment plans.  In addition, they also provide an adoption service and a range of community outreach programs including Pet Therapy. 

Lort Smith does not receive any ongoing government funding or income from local councils to pay for the animals in their care. As a not for profit they rely on the generosity of our donors and the community to help continue their important work.

As one of our Charity Partners Alexkarbon has raised significant funds for Lort Smith at the North Melbourne Spring fling.
