This dedication to personalisation ensures that both children and parents are equipped with practical skills and unwavering support, enabling them to confidently tackle the daily hurdles posed by autism. 

Emphasising Health and Wellbeing 

The event also served as a platform to discuss broader health and wellbeing initiatives. In collaboration with the Queensland government, the foundation has embraced programs like the Pod Squad, which promotes a healthy lifestyle across Queensland through an innovative app. This initiative is crucial in extending the reach of health and wellbeing strategies, making them accessible to a broader audience and integrating them into everyday life. 

The Pod Squad app represents a forward-thinking approach to public health, empowering Queenslanders to take charge of their health through technology. This aligns perfectly with the goals of Little Grubbs Orchard, which seeks to provide holistic support and effective solutions for the challenges faced by its community.

QPuzzles contributed 10 of their popular puzzles, worth over $549, as auction/prize items, which were just one of the many creative prizes available. The inclusion of various donated items demonstrated the support available for raising money for the foundation and the collective effort of the Gold Coast community to back such a worthy cause.
