Voiceless welcomes your support, sponsorship and donations. We are extremely grateful to our significant donors who wish to remain anonymous and to the many professionals and companies who provide us with pro bono, discounted or in-kind support.
"I am delighted to have been a major sponsor of Voiceless over the past six years. As Australia's largest ethical funds management business, we are committed to good corporate citizenship. Together with environmental, social and governance considerations, animal welfare is at the forefront of corporate social responsibility. This is increasingly evident in the attitudes of investors, and more broadly the community, consumers, and regulators.
Voiceless is unique amongst groups in this area by working with leaders of the business, legal and professional establishment to make a difference for animals in areas such as factory farming, and to integrate animal protection in the CSR agenda. Not only is it a pleasure and an ethical imperative, it makes good business sense to partner with Voiceless."
"Astonishingly, in a country as civilised as Australia, commerce still appears to come before compassion, and profit before preservation.Yes, we must eat. But why should the animals we eat suffer sad and miserable lives and then agonising deaths? If Australia is going to trade in animal flesh -- kangaroos, cattle, pigs, sheep and poultry -- why can this not be done humanely? If we could put a man on the moon over 40 years ago, and make huge advances in medicine, science and technology, surely we can process animals without them suffering needlessly in the 21st century.
I believe that the only way that we can get the message across to our political and business leaders and make the public aware that this terrible animal suffering has to stop is through investigative journalism. The Dalwood-Wylie Charitable Foundation has sponsored the important 2011 Voiceless Media Prize in the hope that vital changes in practices carried out in Australia will be made."
Long-time Voiceless friends Dr Charlie Teo and his wife Genevieve have served as patrons of the Voiceless Awards for a number of years and are passionate advocates of our work.
"I think that the first thing we need to do is become aware of where our food comes from and how farm animals are treated. If more people became aware of these things there would be huge public outcry, which would lead to change.”
