KIDS Foundation kicks off campaign

The KIDS Foundation has launched its first public campaign this month, asking Australians to ‘put their hands up’ and buy a pair of gloves to enable the Foundation to continue its great work of more than 27 years.

“Approximately one-third of the children who come to the KIDS Foundation have been injured by a parent and often under the most horrific circumstances,” says the founder of the KIDS Foundation, Dr Susie O’Neill.

“Our team help trauma survivors who have experienced horrific injuries caused by burns, dog attacks, crime, neglect and abuse.

“Through our prevention and recovery programs, and camps we also educate and empower children and their families every day,” she says.

The ‘Put Your Hand Up’ campaign is supported by a host of Australian media and sporting identities, including Dr Richard ‘Harry’ Harris OAM, who led the miraculous 2018 Thai cave rescue of school children.

The financial support the KIDS Foundation relies on to run their programs has dropped more than 85% in the last eighteen months.

This campaign is asking all Australians to help the Foundation through the ‘Put Your Hand Up’ campaign to continue their great work.

By purchasing a pair of ‘Put Your Hand Up’ gloves, everyone can get behind the KIDS Foundation mission to raise child safety awareness to keep every child in Australia safe, free from injury and harm.
