13 November 2015 –
The Smith Family’s Christmas Appeal was launched yesterday by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk with a $100,000 donation from the Queensland Government on behalf of all Queenslanders.
The Appeal is raising funds to help disadvantaged young people get the most out of their education. The Smith Family runs programs aimed at keeping young people engaged in school, stopping them from dropping out early, improving literacy and numeracy, and broadening students career aspirations.
The Smith Family aims to raise $3.4 million nationals during this year’s Christmas Appeal. Funds raised will help disadvantaged children across Australia – including almost 1,000 in Queensland.
