No junk food to raise money

Amelia and Tylah are in Year 6 at Williamstown North Primary School in Melbourne. They decided to raise money for ChildFund Australia by asking friends and family to sponsor them for not eating fast food. Here’s what they had to say about their challenge.

For a school project, we researched the following focus question: “What aid does Australia provide to other countries?” After completing our research, we were shocked and appalled at the conditions some children have to live in.

We feel so lucky to live in a country with fantastic opportunities and resources. We really wanted to do something more to help children in need. We wanted to raise money to help. In order to do this, we decided to give up junk food for three weeks, and those who wanted to donate money sponsored us on our three-week journey.

We successfully completed our goal and decided that we wanted to donate the money to ChildFund because Amelia’s family has a sponsored child with ChildFund.

At the completion of the three weeks we raised $236 which went to helping the health of children in need. We were so proud of what we had achieved and we would like to thank all the people who sponsored us. We couldn’t have done it without you!
