John Maclean Foundation -2014

At this year’s National conference in Bali we had an amazing speaker and more importantly an amazing human being, John Maclean who shared his life journey with us. Whilst John was a fit active person with an enormous professional sporting future this was taken away after being hit by a truck whilst training for a triathlon. Despite being told he would never walk John wouldn’t accept this and everyday he pushes himself further and further. Whilst still reliant on his chair John is determined to never need it again.

Boost was so moved by John Maclean the Boost foundation donated to the JMF foundation in conjunction with Kids for Kids to provide grants helping some Aussie families and kids that are faced with extensive challenges every single day.

 

Boost Celebrity Smoothies (2014)

In a first of its kind collaboration, Boost Juice partnered with four of Australia’s most loved and recognised celebrities to launch a limited edition range of smoothies and juices to support some great causes.

Carrie Bickmore, Jules Lund, Adam D’Sylva and Justice Crew each created a unique to reflect their personality and taste. To make their recipe even sweeter, 50 cents from each drink sold was donated to a charity of the celebrities’ choice.

The following charities recieved a 50 cent donation for every drink sold from their respective celebrity’s:

  • The Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation (Carrie Bickmore)
  • The Reach Foundation (Jules Lund)
  • E.J Whitten Foundation (Adam D’Sylva)
  • The Sony Foundation (Justice Crew)

Janine Allis, Founder of Boost Juice said it was great working alongside these household names and seeing what recipes they came up with, but more so it was fantastic to be able to give back to vital parts of the community.

 

Boost trading in the board room for the classroom in Fiji- 2013

300 Boost Juice partners and employees descended on the Vuniyasi District to a local school to roll up their sleeves and refurbish the facilities. Boost gave the entire school a much needed make-over, building desks, library seats, and new blackboards, netball and volleyball posts and outdoor seating. The renovation was quoted as being the equivalent of what would have taken 12 years to complete and changed the lives of over 120 students in the Vuniyasi district.
