This May ERCSA is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow.
GivingTuesday Australia is an opportunity for people around Australia, and the world, to stand together in unity and use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
Every Tuesday in May, on our social media, we will take part in the Giving Tuesday campaign, following these themes each week:
The Giving Tuesday Campaign is about more than just money. So while we will sometimes focus on fundraising, the campaign is largely about spreading positivity, gratitude, and thanks.
While children have thankfully been largely spared from the direct health effects of COVID-19, the crisis will have a deep effect on their wellbeing, and the harmful effects of this pandemic will not be distributed equally. We hope our volunteer-led website www.campathome.org is helping to minimise the impacts of social distancing on our campers and their families.
ERCSA is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow to ensure we are in a position to support those children and families that need us most, both during, and after this pandemic.
Due to COVID-19, we are projected to lose 25% of our annual budgeted income. Of that, we stand to lose 90% of our fundraising income as we are currently unable to run any of our planned fundraising events. To support ERCSA into the near future, and ensure we can meet the rising need when our programs return, you can:
Become a regular donor ($5 a month, $25 a quarter - your choice!)
Give a once-off donation
Commit to supporting our future programs with in-kind support (resources, food, cooking, bus driving etc)
