We are honoured to announce two organisations that we will be raising money for during the Love Gone Wild Conference.
The Pyjama Foundation
At The Pyjama Foundation, they provide children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence. Through the Love of Learning program, volunteers called ‘Pyjama Angels’ are recruited, screened, trained and then matched with a child in care and spend time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities. Pyjama Angels read books aloud with their child, play educational games and help children with their homework. Most importantly, the volunteers give foster children a chance to reach their life potential, despite a fragile start. Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. By improving their learning skills, The Pyjama Foundation is making a positive, life-long impact.
$$$ – To help raise money and support this foundation, we will be holding a Hi-Tea-styled Charity Pyjama Breakfast on Saturday morning at 7.00am. Come along in your pyjamas (optional) and listen to Kate Forsyth, ambassador for this foundation.
Tickets to this event cost AUS$45.00^. Book your tickets online when you register for Love Gone Wild.
^ RWA have the right to cancel this event if minimum numbers are not met. (Refunds will be provided).
Canine Helpers is a community support organisation that provides assistance to people with a disability through the training and placement of different types of assistance dogs, including:
- Service Dogs for people with physical disabilities;
- Therapy Dogs for people with many other types of disabilities;
Canine Helpers is the first non-profit organisation accredited under the new Queensland Legislation as a Certified Assistance Dog Training Organisation.
Canine Helpers provides an individually tailored program so that each client receives an Assistance Dog that is perfectly suited to their needs. They provide a highly specialised service to the disabled community and it is the only one of its kind in Brisbane.
$$$ – To help raise money for Canine Helpers, come along to the “Bring Out The Animal In You” Cocktail party on Friday night and have your photo taken with one of the dogs for a gold coin donation. The KG bar located in the Pullman Brisbane King George Square Hotel foyer, will aptly be renamed “THE K9 BAR” for the weekend. Please make a gold coin donation each time you enter.
