Yvonne and Mark Winter (our founders and the creative minds behind TipSticks) are active within our community. Not only do they strive to assist with “Creating a Lifetime of Memories” they seek to make a positive difference both on a local and global scale. In line with their ethos, the team at TipSticks have created the TipSticks philanthropy program.

This program is designed to provide financial assistance to an individual or charity in need.

Each recipient or charity is personally chosen by Yvonne and Mark.

For each TipSticks category sold, TipSticks will donate AUD$1 (for online orders) and AUD$0.50 (for wholesale orders) to an individual or charity (selected by Yvonne and Mark) to help improve the lives of these individuals and/or their families.
