Recently COS and The Lyone Foundation held a “Vote to Change Lives” within the COS company. Each staff member was gifted a monetary donation to go to their choice of three charities as chosen by The Lyone Foundation. The Lyone Foundation was founded by COS Managing Director Dominique Lyone as a way to give back to deserving Australian charities like the ones that so helped he and his family when they immigrated to Australia, from Egypt in the 1960’s.
The Gold Foundation provides support for young people with Asperger Syndrome and their families by giving them the support and skills to live full lives. COS staff votes contributed $19,000 towards facilitating a bi-annual social skills program for kids, run by The Gold Foundation. The sessions will focus on core education and social boundaries and will provide one-on-one learning opportunities and mentoring for both the child and family.
COS staff are thrilled to have helped, by way of the Lyone Foundation, these fantastic, deserving charities and are proud to be a part of a company that would support such an initiative.
