Children need your HELP
7.6 million children die every year before their fifth birthday.
Most of these deaths occur in the first year, and more than a third are within the first month of life.
They die from easily preventable causes like diarrhoea, pneumonia and malaria. Save the Children
is working hard to change this through programs such as our Primary Health Care program
in Laos which focuses on building clinics, providing clean drinking water and training health
workers for men, women and children living in remote mountainous areas of northern Laos.
By 2015, up to 75 million children will be affected by natural
disasters every year.
The last few years has seen famine, floods, earthquakes and tsunamis take the lives of
children all over the world. Save the Children Australia, with our colleagues around the
world, delivered life-saving aid including health care, nutrition, water, protection and
education to children and their families.
Today, 67 million children around the world do not go to school.
Sometimes it’s because they live in an area of conflict, they can’t afford books or uniforms,
or the children have to work to support their family. Save the Children Australia’s
Playscheme program runs in over 80 locations throughout Australia. With trained staff
and family support workers, the program provides early learning activities and parenting
support for disadvantaged families and children under the age of six.

How YOU CAN make a difference
What is Workplace Giving?
Workplace Giving is the term given to the program which
allows you to donate a portion of your pay directly to charity.
Workplace Giving is the simplest way to give regular donations to Save the Children
Australia. This program enables you to donate money via pre-tax payroll deductions directly
to Save the Children Australia.
The Australian Tax Office (ATO) permits employers to calculate tax on your pay net of
workplace giving donations. This means that you instantly receive a tax deduction.
Become a Workplace Giver with
Save the Children Australia
By supporting Save the Children Australia through Workplace Giving,
you are helping to create real and lasting change for children living here
in Australia and around the world.
Nominate Save the Children Australia as your charity of choice for Workplace Giving to
your payroll department. By law every payroll system must have the capability to facilitate
Workplace Giving donations, which means that you will always have the opportunity to
donate to Save the Children Australia.

has these, then you are all ready to begin donating.

• Donations go straight from your payroll
into Save the Children’s bank account
therefore dramatically reducing our
administrative costs as we don’t need
to process every individual donation
• Most importantly you feel good when
you give because you know that your
contribution really is making a difference.

Other ways you can
make a difference with
Save the Children Australia
The benefit of partnering with Save the Children Australia is that staff have
many opportunities to support the work we do here in Australia and around
the world. Here are just a few examples:
Volunteering in our
local Programs or at
Community Events
Skilled Volunteering
Whether its helping to develop
organisational wide or fundraising
campaigns strategies or helping out with
administration, skilled volunteering is the
perfect option for staff to connect their
professional skills with their passion for
supporting a charity.
Volunteers can be directly involved in the
day-day activities of the playgroup. Children
learn by having the opportunity to engage
with other children while their parents
build a strong network for support.
Charity Challenge
Fundraising
Adventure Volunteering
Every year Save the Children Australia runs
exciting Adventure Volunteering programs
which you and your colleagues can participate
in. These trips provide a truly unique
experience by enabling you to raise vital funds
before volunteering at a Save the Children
program in an adventurous location around
the globe such as Nepal or Laos.

your staff have countless opportunities to
challenge themselves while raising much
needed funds for vulnerable children.

More about Save the Children
Save the Children
was founded by a
remarkable woman
Save the Children was founded in
the UK in 1919 by a remarkable
woman, Eglantyne Jebb. The first
Australian branch of Save the
Children was established in the
same year.
In a time when women didn’t even have the
right to vote, Eglantyne was revolutionary
in changing the way the world treats
children. She was moved by the plight
of children following World War 1 and,
ignoring the many angry views in Britain
that she was helping “children of the
enemy”, Eglantyne began Save the Children’s
first relief program in Austria, providing
food to starving children. It was the first of
many programs and fundraising activities
she established to help children.
But Eglantyne wanted to do more than
provide immediate relief. She believed
that it was important to invest in children
in order to secure a more just and
peaceful future. So in 1923, Eglantyne
penned five directives she believed were
the fundamental rights of every child.
Her legacy remains to this day; these
directives evolved into the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of the Child,
the most universally accepted human
rights instrument in history.
