Hands Up Now! campaign launched

At Life Education we believe that every child is important. Yet every day they face countless dangers, from bullying and alcohol to smoking and illegal drugs. It’s our job as adults to guide them, and to arm our children with the confidence and skills to face these threats.

As an independent not-for-profit, we're dedicated to empowering children and young people to make safer, healthier choices – even when faced with peer pressure.

But we can’t do it alone. That's why we have launched a fantastic initiative called Hands Up Now! We aim to raise much needed funds to help us continue reaching more children and young people right across the state.

Money raised will go towards making a real difference:

  • $49 per month will support Life Education to deliver health and drug education to a small school in regional Queensland for one whole year.
  • $37 per month will provide education to help keep one disadvantaged child safe from harm every week.
  • $20 per month will empower 25 children to make safer, healthier choices every year. That's equivalent to an entire classroom of children.

You can join Hands Up Now! and arm our youngest generation with the information, skills and self-esteem they need to make better life choices. Choices that will keep them safe and ensure they continue to thrive.

For more information, or to join Hands Up Now!, please visit the Hands Up Now! page.
