‘It’s about kids, kindness, love, opportunity and hope’

IMG_1942 (email)

It is a sobering awakening to discover that current statistics, as published during Anti-Poverty Week 2014, show that 1 in 7 Australians and I in 6 children are living in poverty.

As a resident of Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs I simply do not see this reality on a day to day basis…

I discovered these facts during an interview with Rosemary Teed who is currently a Student Wellbeing Coordinator and a specialist in issues related to poverty and its ripple effect.

Throughout her vocation of over twenty years
working with children, Rosemary felt that she was putting proverbial bandaids on poverty stricken kids until she ‘bit the bullet’ and went about formalising her vision in the Magical Getaway Foundation.

It is important that there are experienced and dedicated people like Rosemary Teed working on the front lines who continue to rise up and manifest practical solutions to what are often spiritual maladies within our communities.

This non-for-profit organisation is about providing financially disadvantaged children and their caregivers the chance of experiencing a family holiday for the very first time in their lives.

The ultimate goal is to plant life changing ‘seeds of hope’ through positive experiences.

It’s about kids, kindness, love, opportunity and hope; the fibre of any healthy society.

First established in 2013, the Magical Getaway Foundation is hosting these two very special events on the 24 May 2015 to further illuminate their call to action and encourage sponsorship from corporate organisations, trusts, private donations and government agencies from within our community.
