Great News! In the last two weeks, we’ve raised the funds for our matching grant of $30,000.
That means we’ve raised $60,000 towards our Courage Appeal. Thank you to our generous ‘matching’ donor
and to everyone who has donated so far to the COURAGE Appeal.
What does COURAGE mean to you?
At Blue Dragon, children in crisis face this question every day
They need COURAGE
COURAGE to give up their meagre life on the streets
COURAGE to flee from traffickers
COURAGE to recover from terrible abuse
For every dollar donated…
Your donation to this year’s COURAGE Appeal will give to at least 1,500 homeless, at-risk and trafficked kids
2 new + 3 existing shelters = 5 safe homes
Double our presence on the streets = stop abuse before it happens
Counselling and practical help = heal the trauma of trafficking and abuse
How you can help
Meals for a homeless child for 1 month
Counselling and a health check for a trafficked girl
Shelter, clothing, care for a child at risk of exploitation for 1 month
Rescue a child living on the streets
Rescue a girl trafficked to the sex trade
The COURAGE Appeal project has been guided, designed and produced by our kids!
Over the last few months, Blue Dragon kids have been exploring the idea of ‘courage’ with their social workers. We were overwhelmed with the ideas they came up with: from having the courage and confidence to talk in front of a group to stories of extreme bravery after experiencing abuse and violence. There were many difficult memories. There were also strong feelings of joy and triumph as the kids developed their own stories.
