About B4VK Annual Giving Day

 

Children, their safety and wellbeing, are at the heart of everything we do.

To ensure longevity of our programs and to raise awareness about children at risk of abuse or neglect, or experiencing the trauma of displacement, we launched B4VK Annual Giving Day in June 2021.

 

Through this flagship fundraising campaign, with the incredible support of our community, we were able to provide material aid to over 7,000 displaced children in 2021.

The need to support children in crisis and out of home care will never go away. In fact, the latest research highlights that *27,500 children in Victoria could enter the OOHC system by 2026 as a result of the pandemic.

This year alone, we dedicated ourselves to supporting more than 8,850 local displaced kids.

Every single one of them is part of our caring, compassionate, resilient community.

They all need our support now more than ever.

Help them feel a little less alone.

 

Organise a fundraiser at school

Kids love supporting their peers! There are many ways for schools to help change the lives of vulnerable children. Holding a fundraising activity for Backpacks 4 VIC Kids will help us give essential items giving children an equal chance to thrive.
