A simple act of kindness makes a difference

2 November 2015





Not many 7 year olds would happily say they had enough toys, but Taya Webster from Brisbane’s Holland Park is one special young lady.

It was Taya’s birthday a few weeks ago and instead of making a list of presents she’d like to receive, Taya asked her party guests to donate money to Act for Kids instead (see Taya’s letter below).

Nearly 40 children attended the party, which was held at a local playground, raising $394 for abused and neglected kids. Taya’s mum Kersti said she had talked to her two daughters about disadvantaged kids over the school holidays and Taya felt compelled to do something to help.

“It struck a chord with her. She realised how lucky she was and it got her thinking about how she could help others,” said Kersti.

Thank you Taya for your inspiring act of generosity!
