To get started:
1. Speak with your friends, teachers and parents about the different ways that you can make a difference to people and causes in need. There are heaps of charities that need your help raising money or awareness. Google it!
Organisations such as Giving West, Volunteering WA or School Aid can provide examples of different ways you can get involved.Most importantly find a charity or cause that you feel passionate about.
2. Plan and then action your project:
Brainstorm the best way you can help your cause or charity.
Examples of what you can do include turning your dance concert into a fundraiser for a local charity or visiting your local retirement village and putting on a concert for the residents. Choose a date and time for your giving project.
3. Register your giving project online: www.kidswhogivewa.com.au
Provide the date, time and location of your project and email the details to Kids Who Give WA.
Invite the Governor and Mrs. McCusker, the Minister for Education, your local MP, Mr. Akram Azimi (Young Australian of the Year) or Kids Who Give WA Committee Members to come and see your project in action.
4. Put your project into action:
Run your project. Take plenty of photographs and / or a video. Gather reflections on what has been learnt and what you might do differently next time.
