Share your “Fun Days In” and donate to KidsIn!
At a time when many children will now be in quarantine in refuges across the country, they need our services more than ever to experience fun and happiness while living through extreme difficulty. As soon as the social distancing restrictions are lifted, we can get back to taking children on Fun Days out to theatres, cinemas, and other exciting activities beneficial the protection and preservation of a child’s welfare. COVID-19 will come to an end and when it does we need to make sure that we are in the best possible shape to get straight back to doing what we do best as the ‘fun and happiness’ charity: putting smiles on the faces of children.
As part of our KidsIn initiative, you can help us provide Fun Days out after the social distancing measures have been lifted by taking part in our “Fun Days In” campaign! We are asking people to:
- Take a picture/video of themselves having a fun day in
- Upload it onto social media using the hashtag #FunDaysIn
