Earlier this year we announced The Smith Family are our official charity partner. The Smith Family is Australia's largest children's charity helping children experiencing disadvantage get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
Lockdown restrictions have been a challenge for everyone but it has been especially tough for children already facing poverty. One in six children in Australia is currently experiencing poverty and with hundreds of thousands of families already economically impacted by COVID-19, that number may rise.
The Smith Family is an independent children's charity helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
As Australia’s largest national education-oriented charity, they support children experiencing disadvantage to participate fully in their education, giving them the best chance at breaking the cycle of disadvantage. Their learning support and mentoring programs help children in need to fit in at school, keep up with their peers, and build aspirations for a better future for themselves.
A donation will ensure disadvantaged Australian children receive critical, out-of-school learning support through our life-changing programs.
