For a long time now many lucky people have been winning luxurious homes in Lottery Homes Australia competitions, year in year out. These prize homes are usually put up for grabs by some of the most prominent charitable organizations in Australia. Through these organizations, many lives have been changed for the better not only through the pleasant surprises that come with winning luxurious and expensive lottery homes, but more so through the work of charity that is done by the organizations which are behind the lotteries.
These charitable organizations use the lottery draws as one of the means through which they raise funds for their charitable activities. This is realized through the sale of lottery draw tickets to individual citizens who would like to participate in the competitions, hence giving them a chance to indirectly contribute towards the noble cause of helping the needy and disadvantaged in society. The most notable names that organize the Lottery Homes Australia competitions include:
RSL Art Union
A well known charitable organization, RSL Art Union was founded several decades ago to help in charitable activities that are aimed at helping to reintegrate war veterans back into society. The beneficiaries are both former and current Australian Defense Forces personnel, together with all their dependants. The regular Prize Home Lotteries organized by RSL Art Union form the main source of the funds used support this charity work. Some of the young soldiers returning home from long missions abroad find themselves in a totally new society different from the one they left behind, because of the dynamic nature of the modern society. These young people find it very difficult to get their lives back on track without any help. This is where the RSL Art Union comes in handy to help these young men to pick up their lives from where they left them.
Another group of people that benefits greatly from this charitable organization is that comprising of war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that is as a result of being haunted by memories of horrific scenes from the battlefield, as well as those who are maimed or fall sick in the line of duty. These maimed former servicemen and women get support through rehabilitation, affordable emergence accommodation, free welfare services, advocacy and free pension.
