Featured CEO: Tom and Ed Bailey of Classics for a Cause on tackling mental health problems in the veteran sector
Tom and Ed Bailey are the brothers behind Classics for a Cause, a charity giving people a chance to own a classic car in exchange for buying a raffle ticket. Tom and Ed also run Veteran Benefits Australia, an initiative that connects veterans to government-funded benefits and Veteran Mindfulness, an online platform that teaches art, meditation, yoga, and other activities to veterans.
To date, Classics For A Cause has amassed more than 130,000 supporters and given more than $2.5 million to its veteran charity partners, including Young Veterans and Heroes on the Homefront.
In this video edition of Featured CEO, Third Sector sat down with the brothers and had a quick interview via Zoom to discuss the brother’s visions for their initiatives, how the ongoing pandemic has affected their work, and how they got their start working in the veteran sector.
