YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
As Australia's largest not-for-profit youth arts organisation, Harvest Rain is committed to making a difference in the lives of creative young people all over Australia. You can make a difference too, by making a tax deductible donation. There is a crisis occurring among young people in Australia. The world is changing, and while some things are easier now than they were for us, in many ways for our young people things are so much more challenging. Statistics show that instances of severe depression and anxiety in young people are at record high levels. We know that every day in Australia, we lose 8 young lives to suicide. One of the most prominent causes of self-harm and suicide is feelings of isolation and lack of belonging. It’s a big problem … WE WANT TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION. We know that when you nurture a child’s creativity, you foster in them a sense of validation that leads to self-confidence and self-esteem. That’s why we developed Harvest Rain’s Youngharts Network. It’s an online hub designed to build creative communities for young people. It’s a safe place where creative kids like Charlie can thrive. We met Charlie in Adelaide recently. He is 10 years old. He loves to dress up and use his imagination to create wonderful characters like ‘Princess Ava’ in her sparkling ball gown. Charlie is a really special creative kid. We're so glad his Mum signed him up to join our mass ensemble in the HAIRSPRAY Arena Spectacular. On his first day of rehearsals alongside Simon Burke playing Edna Turnblad, Charlie sent his Mum this text:
When Charlie's Mum explained how validating his rehearsal experience had been, the Youngharts Network organised for Charlie to come backstage and meet Simon Burke.
Not every child has access to creative opportunities, but through the Youngharts Network, any young person can be part of this unique creative community. It’s a place for kids like Charlie to find support, inspiration, education and validation. Charlie and more than 15,000 other young people are already part of Harvest Rain’s Youngharts Network. You can see for yourself what an impact this is having by visiting www.younghartsnetwork.com With your help, we know we can do even more. CAN YOU HELP? A regular donation of $12 per month provides access to the Youngharts Network for one young person like Charlie. We receive no federal, state or local government funding. We do what we do because of generous support from good people like you. Please make a tax-deductible donation by clicking on the below link or following the instructions listed below. From all of us here at Harvest Rain, and of course, on behalf of the amazing creative young people we support… Thank You.
