Our Founding Partners, The Goldman Brothers, have been super busy with Kids Giving Back. On a recent Sunday morning, they generously hosted one of our Cook4Good programs, with 50 Cranbrook kids along with their mums and dads working hard making and delivering hundreds of meals for residents at homeless shelters as well as to individuals living in tough situations. Thank you, Barry and Mark for your generosity and for leading the way through your actions. You’re truly walking the walk and helping us to create the Next Generation of Generosity.
And talking of walking….. and running….. in October the Goldman Brothers and Kids Giving Back launched the 2018 Goldman Brothers Adventure Run, our annual fundraiser to be held the weekend of May 4-6, 2018. Runners and walkers (all welcome!) can now register and start training for this hugely fun, 2-day off-road marathon traversing the magnificent trails of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.

Kids Giving Back 5th Birthday
In August Kids Giving Back celebrated our 5th Birthday and some key milestones including 10,000+ kids volunteering, and providing 36,000+ meals to those in need.
Our work these past months has enabled several hundred kids, families, and schools to give back to communities. We’ve also enjoyed working with Corporates, some volunteering along with team members’ kids participating.
We launched our first ever School Holiday programs – making soft toys for kids living in shelters with their mums as a result of domestic violence; and interacting with the elderly over scones and tea at our Scones4Good program.
On a final note, we’ve just updated our website so those of you not on Facebook can now access all volunteering opportunities via our homepage http://kidsgivingback.org/
We’ll soon be launching our 2018 programs so please keep an eye out for details and sign up to join us. It’s going to be a bumper year! Wishing everyone a safe and fun summer from the Kids Giving Back team.
