Fundraising appeal - we need your help
Thank you for being a past customer and/or supporter of Kidsafe Queensland. As you are probably aware, Kidsafe is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to the prevention of unintentional injury and injury death in children.
We provide resources, information and education to parents, carers, early childcare workers, high-school students and others on the hazards children face and what can be done to prevent injuries.
We also prepare campaigns to alert the media, the authorities and the community about new and existing dangers, trends in injuries, the latest research, and prevention techniques to reduce these injuries and death. We also lobby government for changes to legislation when necessary.
We need your help to continue this important work. Kidsafe relies on our commercial arm – hiring of capsules and child restraints, sales from our safety product shop - AND, for the first time, we are asking you for help by donation.
Your gift will help reduce the number of unintentional injuries that put children in Queensland hospitals and emergency departments. It will help decrease the number of children who are burnt, drowned, run over or injured in so many preventable “accidents”.
Please read a letter from Deborah, who has bravely volunteered to tell how her life was changed forever.
Thank you to those who have already shown their support.
Please be generous. With your help, Kidsafe can save children’s lives and reduce the pain and suffering from preventable injuries.
PS. Your donation over $2 is tax deductible.
