CAFS Help Our Kids
CAFS Ballarat looks after kids and young people who are unable to live in a traditional home environment. In the local newspaper recently they learnt that the complimentary Circus tickets they had been given are no longer valid due to the Circus' event management company going into liquidation. Our kids are devastated by this news so we want to be able to send them to Cirque Du Soleil in Melbourne on Sunday 26th March. We need to raise $3,300 which will cover 20 tickets (all of our residential care kids plus carers) at a cost of $165 each. As a not for profit charity your support is 100% tax deductible (please speak to your accountant if necessary). If you can't donate please help by sharing with family and friends. Thank you for your support. PS We can only show staff faces for privacy reasons.
UPDATE: 21 March 2017
WOW, a big thank you to the community for getting behind this special cause! We have reached our initial target and have some very happy young people looking forward to their trip to Melbourne on Sunday. With interest in this cause getting even bigger, we've decided to keep going until the end of the week with any additional funds going toward sending kids and the wonderful families who look after them in other forms of care (Foster, Kinship, Adoption and permanent care)! Thank you again.
With the media now giving this cause lots of attention we've set a new goal - to send ALL of our kids/young people to the circus! This includes those in foster care and other form of care arrangements. Over 80+ in total! Let's see if we can get there!!
