Advocating for TLC for Kids

The Strength of Your Voice

We are currently only a small charity, so we need all the help we can in getting the word out there, whether by sharing on social media or simply by talking to someone. Just by letting people know about us, you’re helping raise awareness for children who fall through the gaps of existing support services, which in turn helps us bridge that gap. Your voice can be so powerful! 

It All Starts With a Conversation

Awareness can start with a conversation. Many people may not realise that, by sheer misfortune, there are many children who don’t qualify for existing support services, including accident and burns victims and children with rare diseases. TLC for Kids is Australia’s only emergency response charity for these children. Your words alone can have a flow-on effect that ultimately helps us help those children.  

Just One Click

Social media is a fantastic way to advocate for TLC for Kids. With just one click, you can help our charity reach hundreds or even thousands of people, some of whom might need our help, or some of whom might so generously make a donation to our vital programs. We’ve even put social media buttons on all our website pages to make things easier!

Call Upon Your Network

Social and organisational networks – both digital and real – are so important in today’s day and age…especially for charities! We’ve mentioned how a conversation can go a long way, so why not put out a call to arms to your networks and groups? As a community, we all need to rally around those kids who are distressed and suffering without enough support and assistance. Remember: just $1.20 can impact a sick child….so put the word out today!   

See things through their eyes...

In order to help others understand what we do here at TLC for Kids, you might ask them to imagine the nightmare scenario of a child being rushed to hospital. Encourage them to empathise not just with the sick child, but with his or her distressed parents and family as well….

…This is when TLC for Kids enters the scene. If a healthcare professional identifies a need for more practical or emotional support, we are there in an instant. Uniquely, we have no waiting lists, and we respond within the first critical 24 – 48 hours, if not within the hour. We are Australia’s only emergency response charity for distressed kids in hospitals, and their families.

No detail is too trivial or simple when supporting people through this traumatic process, from medical distraction, to transport costs, to something as simple as toiletries (which may have been left behind in the rush).

We hope that you and your loved ones never have to face this. But, if you do, TLC for Kids is working constantly in the background to support sick kids and their families in some way.
