As we begin the New Year with wonderful weather and return to work well-rested, it is my pleasure to provide you with our Summer Newsletter outlining our activities, campaigns, and partnerships highlights from the last few months.
We are incredibly thankful to our generous supporters and partners who helped us continue working for an Australia where at-risk young people have opportunities to enjoy meaningful lives. We had a challenging year, and once again, we proved that together we made a difference positively impacting the lives of the people at our care.
Our Christmas Appeal dedicated to supporting young people experiencing disadvantage is proof that our community knows the value of providing consistent support to those experiencing hardship. We were blessed by the generosity of our donors, even considering the pressures of the rising cost of living and the effects that this had on donations.
We had a busy Christmas season as we partnered with corporate business, individuals, and staff members in order to enhance our impact during a time that is particularly difficult for young people experiencing hardship. For a complete outline of our December activities, please continue reading.
As we begin the month of February, schools are beginning to return – meaning that our Values for Life program will be in full swing. Values for Life provides impactful seminars for primary and secondary schools throughout Australia. Young people are increasingly struggling with many challenges including depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, stress, and the list goes on. Values for Life partners with schools to address these complex situations through engaging and informative schools-based workshops.
If is within your means, we encourage you to support Values for Life or our various other programs by providing a tax-deductible donation.
Enjoy the rest of the gorgeous summer weather.
