ReachOut is delighted to be the exclusive charity partner of Fairy Bread Day.
An initiative by the Australian company, Dollar Sweets, Fairy Bread Day is about sprinkling kindness in support of our youth’s mental health. To get involved, all you have to do is grab your mates, colleagues, or classmates and enjoy a slice of nostalgic sweetness this November 24th.
In a time where the mental health of our youth has taken a hit with rolling lockdowns and ongoing social uncertainty, the number of visitors to ReachOut’s youth, parents, and school services soared by 48% in the first five weeks after the introduction of social distancing measures in mid-March 2020. In Australia, one in four young people experience a mental health difficulty, but only 30% of those who need help actually get it. ReachOut ensures mental health support and resources are readily available and accessible for both our youth and their mentors, whether it be their parents, guardians, or teachers.
We ask you to join in the fun this Fairy Bread Day and host your own event with friends, family, or colleagues, in real life or virtual, and contribute to our cause, helping to provide immediate support for young Australians in need.
All funds raised will assist us in delivering our programs that improve the mental health and wellbeing of all young people, no matter what life throws at them.
Every dollar counts!
Your contribution is appreciated.
