Our beautiful followers, we have a very special and heartbroken little boy who needs our help. On August 1st Khaleed had to say goodby to his most beloved superhero, his little brother Jahleel. Jahleel was born with a rare brain disease called Aromatic 1 amino acid decarboxylase deficiency (AADC) and just a few days after his 4th birthday he passed away. Khaleed has lost his best friend and only sibling. He was inseparable from his little brother and put his heart and soul into helping his mum Bec care for Jahleel, and being the best big brother any little super […]
Thanks to your incredibly generous donations we were able to support the Yuendumu school in the Northern Territory with dozens of items for their Senior School Fellas program. This program teaches health and hygiene essentials to the fellas and is an important part of the school program. Being so far away, the Yuendumu school wasn’t previously able to access the items they needed to successfully run the program and it was at risk of being cancelled. However, thanks to your support we were able to help the school out with more than enough items to set them up and the […]
What a busy end to the week! Well, our week never really ends. We just keep going every day to wherever we’re needed. A few days ago we received a message from our friends at Launch Housing asking if we could assist with a bike for a Dad who just wanted to go out riding with his children. We had previously purchased bikes for the kids when homelessness struck and the Dad just wanted to be able to have an outing with them doing something they loved. Riding their bikes! We were more than happy to oblige and were so […]
The teens in our house have been kept busy during lockdown! A huge thank you to Luke for putting these bikes together so three kids who have been displaced because of homelessness can ride to school on Monday morning. Domestic abuse can affect any family, and we try to keep life as stable as possible when kids are going though it. Sometimes this means simply finding a way to get to school. And this is what these bikes do. A huge thank you to Dave, Juliana and the team at Launch Housing for making sure these kids aren’t forgotten. Senior […]
OK people! We can FINALLY announce our exciting news! We’re expanding into Brunswick East and we just couldn’t be happier! We’re opening a combined Op Shop, meditation den, community space with life connection workshop programs that will benefit everyone in the community but most of all our most vulnerable. But we need YOU to help us get her ready for our grand opening in Summer! We desperately need tradies and tools. The space is gorgeous but she needs a bit of a facelift and it’ll take all manner of trades folk to help us get her ready for her grand […]
Yesterday the wonderful Nadine from Launch Housing got in contact with us to advise there was a young 10 year old boy in their care that could not participate in Bike Education at his school. Today I delivered her a new Bike and Helmet. Our goal at The School Project is to help by assisting in any way possible to ensure that the children can continue their education after being displaced. Experiencing Homelessness sadly comes in so many ways and the children are just innocent victims. When Nadine contacted us we made the decision to get this young boy a […]
It was absolutely lovely to have Ali and the team from kikki.K join us for a packing day yesterday. We managed to pack 40 school bags for kids living in crisis accommodation and experiencing homelessness, plus a stack of Gift Box Organic tampons! The School Project is another of our projects and through it we support young people to stay in school. We can provide anything from a fully stocked brand new school bag, to swimwear for swimming lessons, sleeping bags and everything needed for school camps, even bikes and soccer boots for kids who want to continue sports. Thank you so […]
Warm and fuzzy hugs indeed! A beautiful thank you to Sarah, Kate and the Page 8 Mornington team for donating the proceeds of their gift wrapping donations for 2017 to The School Project. A grand total of $1680 was raised which is absolutely incredible and will help us help so many more children in need to have a wonderful school experience. We cannot thank you enough for your thoughts and generosity. This is incredible ??
