Wonga Beach State School Fundraiser

Wonga Beach State School  hosted an afternoon of family entertainment to raise money for KIND Inc and to celebrate World Kindness Day.  Giggles were provided by none other than the aptly named “The Giggles”, a delicious Bake and Cake sale was hosted by the School Council, and lots of fun activities including face painting and games rounded out a highly successful afternoon of kindness and family fun.

The Student Council raised a wonderful  $830 for KIND Inc who assist local Douglas Shire children needing support after diagnosis with a terminal or chronic illness or injury.

Congratulations Wonga Beach State School students for a successful and entertaining afternoon!

Containers for Change

A recent Newport article featured a local “Bike Lady” who collects 10 cent refundable items and donates half of the cash she makes to KIND. Read the article here.

You can help KIND in a similar way. How? KIND is now registered with Containers for Change so that you can use KIND’s ID to directly donate funds from refundable items into KIND’s bank account. Simply use KIND’s scheme ID below.

KIND appreciates your assistance with our fundraising efforts! Thank you.
