I have been drumming up support among my facebook friends for this worthy cause (PLUS - there's some awesome giveaways on offer this month for pledging). Everyone should jump on board and send this great charity a pair of jocks for the kids!
Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids is a charity set up to help provide some comfort to kids in care - their mission is 1000 backpacks with all the essentials a child may need when unexpectedly taken into care (a toothbrush, a change of clothes etc). With 472 bags (as of today) packed - they are well on their way!
While they are currently asking for pledges of underpants, there are so many ways you can help:
- here's a list of what is currently needed
- you can sponsor a backpack
- donate items
- purchase from their online auction shop
So throw a pair of children's knickers into the trolley when you are doing your shopping this month - you won't even notice the cost but it will mean the world to a little kid out there who could really use your help!
I'd love to hear about what charities you support and how you try to 'make a difference'
