The pandemic has had a devastating impact on our communities severely impacting the mental health of children who have spent the past year in lockdown and completely thrown out of routine. Cash For Kids Day is a chance for us to come together as a community - raise awareness of mental health issues facing young people and support vulnerable families with food provisions and mental health training/resources. The priority is making sure they are well nourished and we will provide support for food and basic essentials so they are not hungry. Next we will provide books for children and a supportive manual for their parent, guardian or teachers offering a story to help the child and specialist advice for the adult. Covering core subject and emotions including Worry, Anger, Sad and Self-esteem.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide food provisions for 181 children
  • Deliver Mental Health books to families and schools to help approximately 10,000 children

Why it's a great idea:

The light at the end of the tunnel for ALL children. This generation of school children face significant disadvantage if we do not take action to inspire them, motivate them and remind them that despite these tough times their local community hasn't forgotten about them. Children going through this pandemic could be the doctors, nurses, school teachers and key workers on the next. It's vital we give them the best chance to thrive against such adversity.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase books for the Mental Health project to help thousands of children

43% of parents are worried about the amount of screen time, a further 20% are worried about stress and anxiety in the under 12's. 1 in 4 children (1 in 3 in some areas) are living in poverty. These shocking numbers are beginning to increase. It's not fair to help the children when they are suffering becomes worse when we can intervene now and ensure they live their childhood to its full potential. There continues to be a significant growing demand for support as the pandemic has wore on. Should our target be surpassed we will simply expand the project utilising the funds raised. Our charity has secured support to cover all its costs throughout the length of this project so 100% of the funds raised via Spacehive will be used to directly benefit the cause.
