An unlikely collaboration is offering Aussies bill education with a cause
Young Australians can find out how to educate themselves on bill payments while also improving financial literacy within Indigenous communities, thanks to a partnership between BPAY, First Nations Foundation and drag queen Leasa Mann.
BPAY has released a video tutorial starring Mann that explains BPAY features like choosing which bank account to pay bills from, scheduling bill payments when it suits you and managing your bills.
For every unique, completed view of the video, BPAY will donate $1 to First Nations Foundation (FNF) up to a maximum of $30,000.
The money will go towards FNF’s financial literacy training program “My Money Dream”.
FNF works within Indigenous communities to empower and instil confidence in individuals, and is driven to establish financial prosperity through education, training and information.
CEO Phil Usher said the organisation expects immense short and long term benefits both for individuals and their communities from the program.
“On average, people who undertake our training will share their knowledge with 5.8 other people in their community – this has the potential to substantially change each individual’s financial path,” Usher said.
He thanked BPAY and Mann for their support and said the money would go a long way towards helping the foundation.
“We are so grateful that BPAY is aligned in our mission to offer financial dignity and freedom and for joining us in this quest,” he said.
“We hope that in the years to come this fundamental right is made simple for every single Australian.”
