Due to the success of the Deadly Pressies initiative, I have decided to have another go at sourcing some funding for the kids I work with. Currently I have 3 young people in mind, all of whom are amazing, all of whom come from very chaotic backgrounds. I have tried to source some funding to assist these kids in reaching their potential but so far I haven’t had any luck. I would happily pay for it all myself however the total amount is just too great for me to afford on my own.
Just to give you an idea of the girls I have in mind:
12 year old girl – a life of family violence and financial hardship who just so happens to be an extremely talented actor. I have been able to link her in with a local drama class and they have been amazing thus far. Hoping to raise the funds to pay for her to attend another term.
14 year old girl - suffering from some major mental health issues due to her life circumstances who has quite the knack for music, particularly piano. I was successful in sourcing some cash for lessons last term and she has spoken of her desire to continue this term.
15 year old girl – previously homeless, from a life of family violence and now dealing with her mother’s cancer diagnosis. A lover of horses I am hoping to link her in with the Pony Club program – “Riders Without Horses” for a term to give her some time to just be herself.
All up the costs will be about $750.00 for the three. Any amount would be appreciated and you can donate
knowing it is going towards these kids enjoying their childhood and working towards reaching their potential. I can guarantee these kids will appreciate your kindness, I work with them every day and their ability to bounce back from setbacks truly amazes me.
