Charitable Giving at the Heart of Juv’ae

At the heart of Juv’ae are two philanthropic women who love doing right by other people.

Of all the charities out there doing fantastic work, Melissa and Nicole, the Directors of Juv’ae, cannot help but support charities that look after children.

During the 2020/2021 financial year, Juv’ae supported the Danii Meads-Barlow Foundation, and through Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion, Melissa and Nicole have sponsored six children from third-world countries.  Something they have done for 12 years now.

Danii Foundation

DANII Foundation supports all people living with DIABETES by raising awareness of WHAT is TYPE ONE. Founded by Donna and Brian Meads-Barlow, parents of Daniella, who fell victim to a silent killer known as Dead in Bed Syndrome in November 2011.

Our vision is for a world where people with type 1 diabetes live without the fear of never waking up.

Our mission is to lobby the government and industry to ensure the latest technologies are available and affordable for patients to alert themselves and their carers to life-threatening hypo and hyperglycaemia events.

To Educate and Advocate for a Type 1 Diabetes voice.

We meet amazingly courageous and inspiring people every day – these people are trying to live an everyday existence. They happen to have Type 1 Diabetes and are hoping to live their lives without fear. The DANII Foundation is a voice for them.
