Isaac is a young man with a dream of setting up his own delivery business.  He also happens to have a complex disability.

Isaac Delivers  is a start up business that aims to allow businesses to focus on their core business tasks, save staff from extra trips before and after work to do deliveries and save on expensive taxi fares.
 
Isaac will deliver any light items to and from business locations. He will greet you using his communication device and his big irresistible smile, drop off your pick up your item and bid you farewell till next time leaving you with a warm feeling in your heart that lasts all day.

What he needs is a car.  To date we have been paying his driver 78 cents per km, which is not sustainable.

Having a car will mean that Isaac can have sustainable work into the future.  Having a job gives your life purpose, provides you with social connections and enables you to be valued for your contribution to your community. Sadly, those things don't come easily to a person with a disability.

Isaac, his family, friends and supporters look forward to having a car that will take his business to the next level and see him thrive, be appreciated and truly belong in his community.

Our website is now live - www.isaacdelivers.com.au. Thank you to BioText for building it for us.

Isaac now has two paying clients. He delivers mail to Marymead and flowers to Lyneham High School.

We now have enough money for a steering wheel, 4 tyres and maybe even a great car stereo for Isaac to listen to his tunes.

Gotta get that engine though! Help us get Isaac that car he needs.

We are slowly getting there! We now have enough for four tyres, a steering wheel and a stereo for Isaac to listen to music while he works! Please help us spread the word. Maybe your neighbours and work colleagues might like to help us?

Here is Isaac doing his deliveries to the Palmerston Medical Centre. Notice the lovely welcome he gets from the staff. Having work that involves getting out and about in the community is sooooooo important for Isaac. He will be known and valued by many others who will raise alarms if he isn't looking well, happy or safe. So we are working hard to set up a viable business for him and having a car will be the great kickstart we need to make that happen. Thank you to all those who have donated and shared this amongst your networks already. Please help us continue to spread the word.

Here is Isaac in his uniform delivering magazines to Canberra Toyota waiting room.

He is using my car to do his deliveries so I have to work at home.

We are looking at getting a second hand car for him in the mean time but if it breaks down, as second hand cars do, that's not a good look for his business. We are a serious business delivering a reliable and useful service.

So our long term goal is to get Isaac a new electric car that will be cheap to run and good for the environment. We want to give it a big and bright paint job with his fabulous logo designed by our friends at Bio Text all over it.

We could also put sponsor logos on the car too if any organisations that we think align with our philosophies would like to sponsor us.
