Celebrating Children’s Week
Make a difference this Children’s Week by supporting the Alannah & Madeline Foundation
Children’s Week, celebrated annually in Australia from October 21st to 29th, is a week dedicated to celebrating children’s rights, their talents, and their well-being. It’s also a time to raise awareness about the challenges many children face, including domestic and family violence. During this special week, we are excited to shine a spotlight on the remarkable Alannah & Madeline Foundation and their tireless efforts to keep children and young people free from violence and trauma wherever they live, learn and play.
In Australia, thousands of children face the harsh reality of domestic and family violence, and their lives are often marked by trauma and instability. This Children’s Week, you have the power to make a meaningful difference to children in crisis by hosting an Alannah & Madeline Foundation Colour Explosion Buddy Run.
How does the Alannah and Madeline Foundation support children?
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is a national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to keeping children and young people free from violence and trauma wherever they live, learn and play.
Through their Care Programs
- Children and young people are supported in programs like Cubby House, a safe haven for children and young people at the Melbourne and Broadmeadows Children’s Courts.
- At times of crisis or trauma, Buddy Bags provide essential material support for a child who may have nothing more than the clothes they are wearing.
- When intensive, long-term therapeutic support is required for a child or young person who has experienced significant trauma or violence, Children Ahead may provide the assistance needed. In turn, TraCS can provide support for educators working with children affected by trauma.
Through their Prevention Programs
- The Foundation empowers positive digital citizens, through both our eSmart programs and more specialised projects like Crushed But Okay for teens and Playing IT Safe for young children. Dolly’s Dream changes the culture of bullying through the support of their work.
Through their Advocacy Programs
- The advocacy work fight for the rights of children and young people as victims of crime, we uphold their rights online and we ensure they are considered in advocacy for gun safety.
So how can we help? At no cost to your school or group, your participants can enjoy all the fun of a Colour Explosion School Run 4 Fun while fundraising for one of Australia’s most trusted and influential children’s charities.
