National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day

Today is a special day...

Because it's National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day, a day to promote the wellbeing and protection of Indigenous children...

Just like the amazing kids living in the remote communities of Indulkana and Mimili, located around 400km south of Alice Springs.

Right now, there are 148 kids within this community who urgently need your support.

Why? Because being able to read and write is their basic human right.

Our 2014 Wall of Hands campaign aims to raise $400,000 to implement our Early Language and Literacy and Community Action Support programs within these communities to help these kids learn to read and write.

These programs will ensure that literacy levels improve throughout the entire community for years to come, so that future generations can continue to gain the literacy and numeracy skills to write their own futures.

But Amanda, I need your help.

We're halfway towards our goal, but I need your support to ensure the 2014 Wall of Hands campaign will reach the kids of Indulkana and Mimili.

And so today, on National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day, I am asking you to join me and raise your hand to help the kids of Indulkana and Mimili and close the Indigenous literacy gap!

Raise your hand today to give these kids the chance to learn how to read and write.

Let's help them reach their full potential to write their own futures.

Thank you.

KimP.S. Amanda, raise your hand today and join the 2014 Wall of Hands campaign to stand up for these kids and take action to close the Indigenous literacy gap!
