Charity and Donations

Charity is not just about making a donation,
it’s about making a difference.

Charity starts at home and Alpacas Computers want’s to not only help you with your repairs and services but also wants to help our Central Coast charities, foundations and causes continue the amazing work they all do. We host charity donation tins in store for a variety of different charities at different times, so when your in store make sure to bring some change to help some important charities.

The most important thing we do is every single month Alpacas Computers will donate 3% of our sales from every item/service sold to a chosen charity, foundation or cause. These Charity organisations can apply by using our ‘Contact Us‘ page and selecting ‘Charity Application’ from the drop down box.

We can’t guarantee every charity, foundation or cause will be selected but we promise to help everyone as best we can.

PLEASE NOTE: From time to time Alpacas Computers will make one off donations along side our monthly donations. Please feel free to ‘Contact Us‘ if you may need assistance with a one off donations, club sponsorship, market stall or any other charitable event.

** Alpacas Computers will use the retail value of all vouchers, prizes and donated items in the grand total below which are given to Charities, Foundations, Causes and are part of One Off Donations.

In June 2013 after reading the plight of Queensland farmers who were destroying their cattle and some being forced off their land, Charles Alder found he needed to do something about this problem. Coming from a family committed to helping others Charles and wife Tracy decided they needed to find out how best they could help those in this terrible situation.

After making calls to agriculture industry groups and speaking to others, and with a lifetime of experience in marketing, it was decided to create a fundraising program that explained exactly what Australians could do to help.

Why not ask Australian’s to “Buy a Bale of Hay“.

Through a number of business contacts, thank you Bartercard, an approach was made to Sunrise the Channel 7 morning program to participate in a hay drive.

Since this hay drive in September 2013, the program has delivered over 160,000 bales of hay across 4 states.

But the Buy a Bale program has become more than fodder.

Today the Buy a Bale campaign is part of the charity Rural Aid, formed by Charles and Tracy to expand services and support to rural communities not only suffering through natural disasters but communities that need help remaining in existence, our rural communities are disappearing and need help.

In one of the driest countries on the planet, there will always be farmers who need assistance feeding their animals.

The Buy a Bale program will be here to provide that assistance. Thank you Australia for helping us make our vision happen.
