Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
KidzWish is a charitable organisation that directly helps Illawarra & South Coast children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability.We have grown significantly and now provide a range of services to help children, including KidzSpeak & KidzCommunicate (speech therapy); KidzMove & Walk (physiotherapy); and KidzPlay & Learn (occupational therapy).KidzWish also provides social and sporting support for the children we help through our Children Experience, Sports Academy and Music & Dance programs. In addition to the programs that we provide, every year since our founding, we have held a Children's Christmas Party. One of the programs that is extremely popular is our KidzSpeak Program. KidzSpeak is an amazing program that reaches disadvantaged children in their early childhood environments to stimulate and develop their communication skills. Various fundraising activities were held throughout the year including the running of large fundraising events like the KidzWish Charity Ball Dinner, Orange All Stars Dinner, Bowls Day and KidzWish Day. We established a new Sponsorship campaign with the Greater Building Society and Stockland Shellharbour to generate further funds for our Appeals Program. The Greater provided a $25,000 donation to the program and funded the cost of a giant KidzWish Giving Tree wall at Stockland Shellharbour to raise a further $35,000 in funds from the community. KidzWish had 46 people register a Supporter page via our Grant a loc
