Meet our m.a.d. kid ambassadors Maddy, 12, and Teegs, who (for the second year in a row) are aiming to provide ONE THOUSAND pencil cases filled with school supplies for kids in Australia who are facing challenges.
Last year they blitzed this total and we were able to distribute 1000 pencil cases to kids in foster care, facing illnesses or other challenges thanks to their efforts - and they were even featured on the Channel 7 news!
The girls have made 1000 hair accessories to sell to help raise the funds and, together with other scrunchies and bows made by volunteers, they have put together hair to help project boxes. Each box is $50 and contains 10 different accessories and funds five pencil cases.

The grand plan was hatched two years ago after they donated $52 of their pocket money (saved over the whole year) to help us with our back-to-school project for kids in foster care.
The girls had meetings, made spreadsheets, wrote sponsorship letters and have made a range of hair accessories to sell to reach their target and helped us launch their own fundraising campaign, Kids Helping Kids!
Each pencil case is hand-sewn by our amazing volunteers. Your help is needed so they can be filled with brand new school supplies.
It would be so appreciated if it you, or anyone you know, could take the opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation (even their donation receipt message is super-cute!) and write them a message of encouragement. $10 will cover the cost of a pencil case going up a child in need. The girls love clicking refresh madly before and after school and are super excited every time they see that more pencil cases have been sponsored).
The picture is of the girls delivering the completed pencil cases last year. So much joy - for them, their supporters and for every child helped!
Please help spread the word about these two amazing, kind and absolutely inspirational young girls. The future is in great hands.
