IT doesn't cost much to be kind and the team at Forsyths know that more than most.
Every week employees sacrifice a few dollars from their pay packet for charity, matched by the principals.
Youth mental health is the big winner this year as Forsyths staff voted to donate $5000 to Tamworth's White Elephant Spring Ball, that raises funds for preventative mental health program batyr.
"There is so much community support for making these things happen, even smaller businesses that are battling and have seen difficulties," Forsyths marketing manager Kimberley Squires said.
"People wanted to do something in relation to drought that had longevity and would impact all ages.
"The feeling was that if we could access young people, even if they could go home and spread the message within their families it would be such a benefit to the community."
The ball started when Tamworth man Scott Campbell lost his battle with mental health less than two months after he married his partner, Katrina.
The first event raised $90,000 and is on October 12 this year, White Elephant Spring Ball chair Annabel Underwood said.
"Batyr does a lot for the community to raise awareness around mental health," she said.
"The drought has had a huge effect and it means a lot to us because it's tough this year, to receive such a large donation truly means a lot."
All five Forsyths offices have $1000 to donate, once every five years a team can hand out the additional $5000.
Gunnedah chose Riding for the Disabled, Armidale the Women's Shelter, Coonabarabran's Cancer Support Group and Tamworth's Inala House for $1000.
