2014 and Save the Children Australia will distribute it to a child in one of its many
local and international programs. Visit guardianpharmacies.com.au to find

Our small thank you
Every year we are amazed by the generosity of our Guardian
Angels. So when you bring in your donation we’d like to

Save the Children Australia
Your knitted gift
Every child has the right to a healthy, educated and safe
future. Sadly, this is not the reality for all children. Millions
still suffer from preventable illnesses, lack of access to an
education, or are abused or exploited. This isn’t right, and
Save the Children Australia is working hard to change
this. Save the Children is Australia’s leading independent
emergency relief and development organisation for
children. We save and protect children’s lives. We strive
to give every child a safe and happy childhood.
In Australia, we work in every state and territory with
programs in more than 140 locations. Globally, Save the
Children works in 120 countries.
Guardian Pharmacies and Save the Children Australia
are proud to be working together again to help
vulnerable children in Australia and overseas. Your knitted
gift will be warmly welcomed by children and families
who need it most, helping babies, toddlers and children
to stay warm and healthy.
Save the Children Australia provides education, health,
protection and emergency relief programs to vulnerable
children – your knitted items will be distributed through
these programs to help those who need it most.
Thank you for your generous support. You can find out
more about Save the Children Australia’s work at
