Recently Deaf Children Australia received donations from school children who raised funds through their school.
We would first like to acknowledge Alexi, Catherine, Rahnia and Nicola from Oakleigh Grammar.
As part of the market day at school the students opened a stall called Sugar Land’e.
The team raised $180.60 for Deaf Children Australia.
We would like to say thank you very much to the students.
We have also received a donation from Malak, a student in year 8 at Baden Powell College. As part of the their class Disease and Medicine they had to do a project based learning task. Malak sold ice-cream cones after school to raise money to help children with hearing loss and raised $60.
Malak choose to investigate hearing loss, as some family members have a hearing loss.
Thank you very much Malak.
The funds that the students have raised will go to raising funds for Auslan for families to help support deaf children like Colby and Sebastian to overcome their barriers.
If you would like to get involved in community fundraising and raise money for DCA’s unfunded programs, please contact Noel Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (03) 9539 5362.
