ACN & Foodbank Pay Your Bill, Feed the Need Program
There are approximately 1 million children in Australia who sometimes don’t know where their next meal is coming from and, one in seven children go to school each day without having breakfast, missing out on the most important meal of the day¹.

ACN has joined forces with Foodbank and together we have a mission to achieve an Australia without hunger, starting with children and their families.

By becoming an ACN customer and paying your bill each month, you are not only getting great services, you are also helping to feed an Aussie family in need.

So, every time someone becomes an ACN Telecommunications* customer and then every time someone pays their monthly ACN bill for those services, a meal goes to someone who desperately needs it. It’s really that simple. 

And remember, these telecommunication services are services you are already using. Only now, you are helping feed families and children in need at the same time. It doesn’t get any simpler or more powerful than that.

Ronald McDonald House Charities

Childhood illness can have a devastating effect on families. On top of the fear and uncertainty come the practicalities of managing the family when a child is away in hospital, often for extended periods of time. In a country as big as Australia, specialist care may be a long way from home and many families simply can’t afford to stay in hotels while their children receive treatment. Even then, the child’s illness often affects much more than their health – it can stop them going to school.

Ronald McDonald House Charities®, provides help and support through a wide range of programs that stretch across the continuum of care – not only accommodation, but also in-hospital support, education programs, health initiatives and financial grants. They are committed to helping seriously ill children and their families across Australia.

In 2008, ACN began working with the Ronald McDonald House Charities® and raises funds for this organisation at various ACN International Events. “We thought we could do the most good by really focusing on a charity that embraced our core value of helping families with children. That led us to Ronald McDonald House Charities,” ACN Chairman and Co-Founder, Robert Stevanovski.

In 2012, ACN Pacific staff members started to volunteer their time to personally help those less fortunate. Staff members have supported local communities through cooking and providing meals, completing craft, playing with children, renovating backyards and homes and so much more.


Yalari’s Mission is to educate and empower Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities to bring about generational change.

In 2005, ACN began working with Yalari by providing their head office with its essential telecommunication services. 

When ACN first partnered with Yalari to help it achieve its goals there were just 5 children in the school, today Yalari helps more than 180 children.

Success story of The Lewinsmith Family

Before discovering ACN, Sandy, Rod, Austin and Winston Lewinsmith were each enjoying success in other fields: IT, Building, Kinesiology and Marketing. Family ties aside, the only thing they each had in common was that they weren’t looking for anything else – they were all perfectly content doing what they were doing. However, all that changed one day when Sandy received an unexpected phone call from a respected colleague who had just seen an extraordinary new business opportunity.
Even though Sandy & Rod Lewinsmith had been seasoned and successful Network Marketers and entrepreneurs, they had never seen anything like ACN. They were excited to discover that it was a truly supportive, team-based business, genuinely focused on helping others achieve.
The fact that the Co-Founders themselves had a history of working in the industry was impressive enough, along with the company’s proven track record. But it was ACN’s ground-breaking business model that sealed the deal. As Sandy says, “I was blown away by the elegance of the Compensation Plan and the simplicity of the services – services everyone already uses!”
Sandy and Rod immediately showed the business to their sons Austin and Winston, neither of who had any Network Marketing experience, but who had both grown up seeing its benefits first hand.
The sheer life changing potential of ACN hit Austin like a brick. Initially reeling in disbelief, his first thought was simply “Wow!” That was just the beginning. As Austin puts it, “I started to dream big again.”
As the sceptic of the family, Winston was more reserved when he saw the business. Although impressed by the company’s focus on essential services and potential for expansion, his expertise in IT made him hesitant. He knew telecommunications would soon go digital and was concerned that standard fixed line telephones would become obsolete.
For Winston, everything changed at Anaheim in 2004 when he learned about ACN’s move into Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) space with its Digital Phone Service and Videophones. He says, “As soon as I heard that, I said ‘I’m in’.” That decision opened the doors to a totally new way of doing business. “I was always in front of a computer, and now I get to travel and work where I want.”
Austin also relishes his new lifestyle, but for different reasons. “I get to set my own hours and spend more time with my family,” he says. And as a father of two young children, building a family business is a dream come true – along with being able to make a genuine difference in people’s lives. As he puts it, “I love the fact that the only way to truly create wealth in this business is by helping others succeed.”
Of course, it’s not always easy. Like anyone else, the Lewinsmith’s have had plenty of ups and downs along the way. But rather than losing faith, they have committed themselves to a very simple strategy for success: find the most successful people in the business, do exactly what they do – and stick to the system!
Today, the Lewinsmith’s are among the top RVPs worldwide, with IBOs in countries all over the world – proving that with focus, effort and a commitment to your dreams, you can make those dreams a reality.
As Winston says, “When you really learn what you’ve got your hands on here, you’ll become invincible.”
