Any support we receive is greatly appreciated
At SHINE for Kids, fundraising is a major part of our being able to continue doing the work that we do. Without the support of the community, young people with parents in prison wouldn’t benefit from the care and support that we provide, nor could we help break the cycle of crime – children of prisoners are five times more likely than other kids to end up in prison themselves.
At any one time approximately 15,000 students in NSW are directly affected by the imprisonment of a parent, and that 60,000 students under the age of 16 have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives.
Every dollar can make a real difference to a young person’s life. Holding your own fundraising event is a fun and rewarding experience. Whether it’s a workplace morning tea or a community trivia night – the satisfaction of knowing you have helped make a difference to a young life is unmeasurable.
See the SHINE for Kids page at everydayhero.com.au for ways you can contribute to someone else’s event or to start your own.
