The charity that is raising millions of dollars for Good Samaritan in Australia has had its focus on good causes, including helping people with disabilities.
The organisation’s founder, Tim Mair, says the charity has received donations from “big, big companies”, and that “every dollar is helping”.
“This is the most amazing time for good causes in Australia, I think it’s going to be one of the greatest of our lives,” Mr Mair said.
The charity is calling for people to “be your best friends”.
The charity has been called Australia’s largest and fastest-growing charity by the ABC’s Good Weekend programme.
It raised $1.6 million from private investors and received donations of $904,000.
Mr Mairs’ son Andrew has been working on the project since 2012, when he was diagnosed with cancer.
The fundraising effort has been helped by the support of people who donate to the Apsa Charity Fund.
“I’ve had a great time doing it,” Mr Murray said.
“And there’s no reason to stop.”
Mr Murray is hoping to raise $15 million, with $3 million from a third party and $3.5 million from donors.
“The first few weeks of this fundraising have been phenomenal, I feel like I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said.
Mr Murray says he has had the opportunity to work with some of the world’s greatest charities.
“We’re going to have to build this thing for a while,” he joked.
“So I can go back and start over.”
The project will be funded by a third-party, which will help manage the donations.
“There are a lot of people that have donated money that are going to help this charity,” Mr Bremner said.
In a statement, the charity said it was “surprised and delighted” to see the amount of support it has received.
“Apsa is the largest, fastest-changing charity in Australia and one of Australia’s most innovative philanthropic ventures,” it said.
It said it had also been a huge hit with the community.
“More than 60 per cent of people have given $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20,” the statement said.
