The Bush Kids team know, and understand the value of the lifesaving work that is performed by the RFDS to the Australian public, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, first hand. As we all live and work in rural and remote Australia, it was a natural fit when considering doing a fundraising activity, to choose the RFDS whose “mantle of safety” gives us the assurance that when emergency medical help is needed, the RFDS will come any hour of the night or day, to render assistance and potentially save a life of our friends or family members, anywhere in the length and breath of Australia.
Last year with the help of the Australian public, we managed to raise in a very short period of time, $6,000 to go toward the lifesaving work of John Flynn’s RFDS. The enduring legacy of the RFDS has stood the test of time and with all of our support, will go on into perpetuity, ensuring that no place that is too far, or too remote, that the RFDS medical team cannot reach.
Please support our fundraising efforts by buying a unique piece of Australiana – a Bush Kids RFDS 2017 Calendar. This Calendar was put together from over 400 entries into our Calendar competition, with the final result being a snapshot into the lives of bush kids and their families from Australia all over.
