Follow your heart this Christmas to protect Aussie kids

There’s no better gift than one that makes a difference for Aussie kids and this Christmas you can do just that simply by following your heart. 
Make an online donation to Bravehearts this joyous season and receive your own Christmas gift – a downloadable origami heart to hang on your Christmas tree. 
This is to say thanks for your support which will help Bravehearts toward our Vision to make Australia the safest country in the world to raise a child by 2020. 
In the past year we proudly supported more than 5000 children and their families with specialist counselling services and more than 10,000 people reached out to us through our free-call Bravehearts Information and Support Line. 
We also educated more than 90,000 kids through our personal safety education program, Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Show, taking the total number of Australian children we’ve educated to more than 500,000.  
Through your generous contribution we have expanded and enhanced our support services to meet this growing demand. However there is still a long way to go in preventing a crime which will affect 1 in 5 children before their 18th birthday.
This Christmas we ask you to follow your heart and help us to continue providing these fantastic services to the community.
What can your contribution do? 
$12 - Provides personal safety education for one school-aged child through Bravehearts’ Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure program
$75 - One crisis call support for a patient-guardian with our professional counselling team
$150 - One counselling session for a child in need.
Follow your heart here
Wishing you and your families a safe and festive Christmas and a happy New Year
