Giant’s netballer gifts her schoolteacher mum school supplies for Mother’s Day

(Sydney, Australia).  This Mother’s Day Amy Sligar has selected School Supplies from ChildFund’s Gift’s for Good catalogue, her mum will receive a card from the organisation while a child in a developing nation will receive critical items that will support their everyday schooling. Amy is one of ChildFund’s newest ambassadors, and her mum, a schoolteacher, has instilled in her the valuable role education can play in lifting children out of poverty. This Mother’s Day Amy will give her mum a gift that embodies the life changing values she has learnt from her over the years.

In disadvantaged communities basic school supplies like pens, pencils and notebooks are too costly and parents simply cannot afford these schooling necessities. Education is the most powerful strategy to reduce poverty, ensuring the next generation of children in developing countries are able to reach their full potential. Increasing the supply of these basic items is essential for their future success.

“Mother’s Day is an extremely special day, it’s a time when we celebrate one of the most important women in our lives and this Mother’s Day, I wanted to give mum something with real meaning,” said Amy. “I think this gift goes beyond materialistic things and really helps someone who needs it. I know this will have real meaning for mum, she’ll love it.”

Amy is studying Biomedical Science at UTS and while she is an exciting athlete on the court she understands the value of a good education.

“Helping children with school supplies and school uniforms is really so important, it not only gives them the tools to get an education it also helps them to feel comfortable and confident in the classroom.”

ChildFund’s Chief Development Officer Corinne Habel is excited to have Amy supporting the organisation’s Mother’s Day campaign and spoke about how these gifts change lives in communities across the world.

“I think one of the most important values that we can instil in our children is to look outside themselves and extend their support to others. For as much as I love a cosy pair of slippers, I’d much rather my family invest in the welfare of a child.”

“It’s really inspiring to see Amy giving her mum the gift of supporting a child’s education. Education has been her mum’s career, and this is a truly meaningful gift, it shows that she has learned from her mum and understands the real value of an education. I can’t think of a better gift or way to celebrate Mother’s Day.”

“Our Gift’s for Good offer a range of products for all mums from new mum support packs, to a dozen chickens, it is  a wonderful opportunity to create real change in the lives of vulnerable children around the world and to honour your mum on Mother’s Day.
