About open your heart charity – kids supporting kids
Hi my name is Lachlan I am 9 years old and live in Melbourne. Over the Christmas school holidays 2014 I woke up really early one morning and I had an idea about creating a web site that helped kids like me help other kids. The idea came about because my family and I had been putting together some donations for Christmas and I thought if I can get the help of other people to donate imagine how much of a difference we can all make together. So with the help of my Dad, Mum and Brother Josh, my grandparents some good friends we went about building this site.
This is my web site that I have setup to help assist children in need.
Kids helping and supporting kids.
I am very lucky! I have a great family and friends that support me. I have lots of toys, books, a nice home and get to play lots of different kind of sports. I wish all kids were as lucky as I am. One person can make a difference, but lots of people and make a BIG difference. You can help too!
Here are some different ways you could help by getting involved…
Unwanted Gifts, Toys and Christmas Presents
At Christmas time I ask all my friends to collect any toys and unwanted gifts. My family and I collect them and in December we take all of these gifts into the Royal Children’s Hospital. This puts a BIG smile on the kids’ faces. I have been doing this for about 3 year now. Last year in 2014 I went in with my brother Joshua and my Dad and delivered lots of toys and some of money I received for my Birthday.
If you have any unwanted toys and books new and used (used have to be plastic only) that you would like to donate please contact us.
Fund Raising Campaigns
Throughout the year I will be organising and encouraging you to join me in some fund raising campaigns. These campaigns will be around great activities that are fun to participate in and support great causes. For more information click on the “campaigns” button.
Old Sporting Gear
Are you lucky to get new footy boots, basketball boots, tennis rackets, ballet clothes, balls bats etc every year? Not all kids are. If you and your family have any sporting or hobby items that are in good condition – donate them. Don’t throw them away, contact us and we can help you donate them to Indigenous communities and Children’s Charities that can give these items to kids who will use them and love them.
So please help me put a smile on a kids face today 🙂
