Director Emma McNeilly started Expressions in 1999 as a one-woman operation working with a handful of schools. Today we have grown into a vibrant team of professionals and are proud to have worked with thousands of schools, childcare centres, sporting groups, clubs, charities, churches and community organisations in every corner of Australia for over 17 years, helping to raise millions of dollars.
Our projects offer a win for everyone at every stage of the process. Starting with ourselves, we provide jobs in our small regional community and a flexible family focus environment for our team of fabulous working mothers → our projects are easy for the coordinator to run → the organisation raises valuable $$$ → parents adore our products → children love seeing their artwork in print → the customer returns again and completes our ‘Circle of Happiness’.
Our staff are involved in school and community organisations, so we get it, we know our customers, we understand busy schedules and the commitments of volunteers and because of this we care.
As a business we support many of our own local community groups. We have donated monthly to Canteen for over 4 years, supporting young people with cancer. For 15 years we have been a World Vision sponsor, our 1st sponsor child is still in touch today and is grateful to be now attending University thanks to our financial support over many years. We have also given monthly for over a decade to Australian charity Your Town, who work to strengthen communities and transform the lives of children and young people.
Our experience means that year after year we continue to help schools and community groups raise much-needed funds and give all our clients exceptional service and product.
