You Be You foster carer informaton session
Foster Carers are extraordinary people. They come from all walks of life, just like the children they care for.
Almost anyone who wants to make a difference in a child’s life can become a foster carer, regardless of gender, orientation, experience with children, whether you’re employed or retired.
You just need to have the passion to make a difference in a child’s life. By being yourself, it encourages the child to be themselves and feel comfortable in their new home.
Everyone is welcome to attend a free You Be You foster carer information session at the Carindale Library on January 23, from 6pm-7pm.

Haven’s Big Top Mania Fundraiser
A Circus Themed Family Fundraiser to help raise funds for the Hill family, and their three-year old daughter who is battling Diamond Blackfan Anemia. A rare blood condition that only effects 800 people worldwide, Haven must have a blood transfusion every 3 weeks to stay alive. Haven also experienced a stroke in March 2018 which has left her battling hemiplegia dyskinetic cerebral palsy and a whole other host of complications. As the condition is so rare, a lot of the treatments aren’t government funded and leaves the family with a lot of out of pocket expenses. Moreover, even though Haven’s team of eight specialists at the Queensland Children’s Hospital are great, the real experts are in the United States and so we would love to be able to help her get the effective treatment she needs. With over 90 appointments last year alone, including four emergency admissions, this family remains positive, advocating for blood donations and has contributed towards saving 753 lives in 2019 through their Haven’s Hope Initiation.
We are hosting a family fundraiser with live music, entertainment, food trucks, sideshow alley, pie a pastor and a silent auction to help raise money for this deserving family. This evening will be a whole host of fun for the entire family for kids young and old. With just a gold coin donation entry, we hope to see you there for an incredible evening and to help this wonderful family.
