12 days of giving for Ipswich

23 December 2014





Budget Direct is embracing the season of giving by supporting Act for Kids with a ‘12 days, 12 donations’ social media campaign to help raise awareness of Act for Kids and support our new Ipswich centre.

For 12 days, Budget Direct promoted an item of therapy equipment to purchase for our new Ipswich centre. To encourage Facebook fans to get involved in the ‘giving’ spirit, Budget Direct asked for a minimum of 30 Likes for each post. And because every post received a minimum of 30 likes, Budget Direct will be giving Act for Kids an extra $1,000!

Ellen Park, Fundraising Manager at Act for Kids, said the team are very thankful to have Budget Direct helping purchase vital equipment and tools for the new Ipswich centre.

“The therapy equipment is a critical part of our intensive therapy program – it helps kids express themselves so our therapists can work through their experiences of abuse and neglect.

“For several years the team at Budget Direct have dedicated their time and effort to supporting Act for Kids’ initiatives through fundraising, volunteering, Christmas hampers and toys and many more activities. It’s great to see them rising to new challenges and bringing changes to children’s lives,” Ellen said.
