I just wanted to say a massive heart felt THANK YOU to everyone who contributed and got behind our Barnados Australia campaign in February. Even to those who just liked and shared the post and showed support. We received some lovely messages and an increase in orders to help support the cause.
We donated over $4000 worth and over 100 pieces in brand new clothes to Barnados Australia this week. Some of the donation will be given directly to families in need and some will be going to the Barnados Australia Op Shop held in May at Rose Bay.
We will be running this campaign again later on in the year and will be doing more work with Barnados Australia. I am pictured here with Sabrina and Marie at head office, two incredible women doing all they can to make a difference in the hearts of children and families.
Barnardos has provided services for vulnerable children, young people and their families in Australia since 1883.
As one of the nation’s leading child protection charities, Barnardos vision is that all children and young people will have caring families where they can grow safely and fulfil their potential, as they believe all children deserve a safe and stable home.
Barnardos provides a variety of integrated child-focused programs and services throughout there Children’s Family Centres which support families and keep children safe at home.
Out-of-Home Care (OOHC) provides a permanency focused continuum of care for children and young people who cannot live safely with their own families. This includes temporary foster care, kinship care, permanent long term care, and open adoption.
Barnardos has been an accredited Adoption Agency in NSW since 1986, specialising in open adoption from OOHC. In recent times Barnardos has provided approximately one third of all Australian adoptions for very young children in foster care.
I encourage you to follow this awesome charity, organisations like this give children and families hope.
