Giving initiative

Last weekend the Jewish Teen Giving Initiative held a very special dinner event and presented $2000 of funds raised to Very Special Kids.

The group consists of 17 year 9 students from all different schools that have come together to learn about philanthropy, aligning their values with different charities, fundraising, giving and about the Jewish faith.

Over the past year, the teens undertook a journey to identify charities that align with their values as a group. They decided to support three charities, one being Very Special Kids.

In order to raise funds, the teens organised a fun Zumba night, a tasty sausage sizzle and an entertaining movie night which proved to be very successful.

On behalf of Very Special Kids, we wish to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the Jewish Teen Giving Initiative, we appreciate the support!
