Every year Australians come together to recognise White Balloon Day for the purpose of protecting kids and preventing child sexual assault. Friday, September 11 marks the 24th year of Bravehearts’ White Balloon Day and we hope YOU will join us!
Whether you recognise the day with a small gesture of support, or arrange a fundraising event, there is a way for you to show you care about protecting Aussie kids. Below are some ways for you to support White Balloon Day at home with friends, family or just yourself!
By fundraising for White Balloon Day you are playing an active role in protecting children and preventing child sexual assault and exploitation.
This year we asking all our supporters to wear white and collect a gold coin donation on White Balloon Day, Friday 11 September. Registrations for fundraising will open soon, so watch this space!
