Be their buddy

No child should live with trauma

Join us as we take the field with the Richmond Football Club for our twelfth annual fundraising match day!

As the mighty Tigers go head-to-head with the GWS GIANTS, we need your support to help children escaping violence and impacted by trauma. Be their buddy by making a donation.

Every year, 11,000 children are removed from violent and unsafe homes and taken into emergency foster care. Many of them arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

One Buddy Bag means the world for a child in crisis.

With your support, a special Buddy Bag can be waiting for them – filled with essentials like new underwear, pyjamas, toiletries, as well as a book and a cuddly teddy for extra comfort.

Sadly half the children who need a Buddy Bag are missing out. We simply can't keep up with demand.

Donate $55 to provide a Buddy Bag to a child escaping violence.

Join the Tiger Army and be a buddy for a child in crisis. Together we can make sure no child has to live with the pain of violence and trauma.

"I've never had a teddy before". – Millie*

When siblings, Millie (4), Aaron (7), and Jessica (10)* were first taken into emergency foster care, they were traumatised. The violence and abuse they'd lived through meant they were afraid of everyone. They barely even spoke.

Thanks to caring people like you, they were each given a Buddy Bag on one of the toughest days of their lives.

*Names have been changed to protect Millie, Aaron and Jessica's safety and privacy.
