Little things make a difference to others.  The SMP team take an active role in the various activities and charities we support

Dr Milton and Kimberly Smith and their children of Make Way Partners

Dr Milton and Kimberly Smith and their children of Make Way Partners

Strategic Media Partners support two beautiful children in Sudan, providing the children with care that will protect them from slavery and offer a life full of the hope of Jesus’ redeeming love.  John, 17 and Mary, 14 are now protected from human trafficking and their lives are filled with hope through the sponsorship made by Strategic Media Partners.

A little about Make Way Partners  … Dr Milton and Kimberly Smith (pictured with their children below) first discovered modern-day slavery while serving as missionaries in the Iberian Peninsula. There they learned the grotesque truth about thousands of young women and children who are trafficked from war-torn Africa and impoverished Eastern Europe and then forced into brothels or child pornography. Together they co-founded Make Way Partners with a mission to protect those most at risk of this modern-day evil.

Sponsorship from business and individuals can and is doing so much to change human trafficking.  God has opened doors for Make Way Partners to rescue, protect, heal and equip for leadership hundreds of orphans in Sudan who have little hope without  intervention.   The support Strategic Media Partners gives to Make Way Partners is possible with profits from every business that deals with us.

Strategic Media Partners and Make Way Partners – Together we can end modern-day slavery.

Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their distress, and refuse to let the world corrupt us. – James 1:27

Strategic Media Partners has been involved with the River 2 Reef Ride since its inception in 2011.

Alan is a keen cyclist so it was a perfect match for Strategic Media Partners to sponsor the annual event.  SMP’s expertise in co-ordinating the advertising for the River 2 Reef Ride ensures the two worthy charities (Mackay Sporting Wheelies & Disabled Association and the CQ Rescue Helicopter Service) continue to receive valuable funds raised through the ever increasing number of ride participants each year.

Give the Rio Tinto River 2 Reef Ride a go in 2017.  The atmosphere is amazing, you will be part of hundreds of riders in their event jerseys heading out of town on a crisp October morning.  Magical.  Check out the event website www.river2reefride.com.au

Mackay Marina Run

As a signature event on Mackay Road Runner’s calendar, the BMA Mackay Marina Run continues to attract bigger registration numbers each year.  Alan has been on the organising committee for this event since 2009 as well as a participant on the day.

Co-ordination time and marketing expertise over many months in the lead up to the run are devoted to this event as part of SMP’s sponsorship.  SMP staff participate in the 5km, 8km, half marathon and 5km corporate challenge every year.

Strategic Media Partners co-ordinates the marketing and adverting for Beach to Gardens Charity Fun Run.

The Beach to Gardens Charity Fun Run is an important part of SMP’s ongoing commitment to support local sporting events throughout the community, as these events encourage a healthy lifestyle and exercising in the great outdoors.

A very worthy cause, RACQ CQ Rescue receives vital funds through running the Beach to Gardens Fun Run, and SMP is happy to play their part in assisting as the whole community benefits from the fundraising done through events such as the Sydney St Medical Beach to Gardens Charity Fun Run.  Mark Sunday 20th August 2017 in your calendar.  This is one event not to be missed in 2017.

Road safety with RAAG.

SMP has had a close working relationship with RAAG since early 2014.  SMP’s involvement extends to sponsorship of RAAG.  The team at SMP share RAAG’s vision and passion for road safety initiatives.

It is a credit to all involved with RAAG how much has been and will continue to be achieved through community consultation and road safety education campaigns across our region.
