Kids Give Charity

Kids Give Charity

The annual Young Leaders Day inspires primary school leaders and promotes Kids Give as an avenue for children to apply self-inspired leadership in practical ways. As one of six primary school students on the first Kids Advisory Team (since 2014), Jasmine has initiated six independent philanthropic campaigns to raise more than $4,000.

"Knowing that you don't have to be an adult to make a difference in the world means a lot to me," says Jasmine, who has been motivated to fundraise for causes including children's education in Bangladesh, Ebola medication and protective clothes, Brumble horse rescue, Nepal earthquake recovery efforts, and child labour.

"I got involved in Kids Give because I wanted to make a difference. Now, I also hope to encourage other kids to take action to help others, too", says Jasmine. "I was really encouraged by how many other kids came up to me in Perth saying they were inspired to raise through Kids Give. Lot of new campaigns have started since!"

Speaking at the Young Leaders Day, which Jasmine described as "amazing, exciting and unbelievable," also gave Jasmine the opportunity to speak with the 2015 Young Australian of the Year, Drisana Levitzke-Gray (pictured). Drisana impressed Jasmine with her positivity and passion to champion change for deaf people.

"She was so positive about being deaf and through an interpreter, shared about her campaign for teachers to be trained to teach Auslan, Australian sign language. Her approach is that little steps lead to big changes," explains Jasmine.

Little steps are what Jasmine aims to continue taking, and she has set a goal to run a campaign every holidays.

"My next campaign is to help raise awareness about alopecia, which I learnt about because a friend's little sister has the condition," she says. "A few friends and I will donate our hair to make wigs for children with alopecia, and we want to hold a cake stall too. Our campaign has been launched (and will last three months) on Kids Give at http://www.kidsgive.com.au/campaigns/kids-with-alopecia/ - and yes, we'd love community support!"
