Jetstar Joins SchoolAid for Kids Philanthropy Awards
30 July 2010 at 1:10 pm

Australian student-focused Not for Profit, SchoolAid and Australian airline Jetstar have joined forces to collaborate on the inaugural KIDS HELPING KIDS AWARDS, established to recognise schools-based philanthropy.

Jetstar General Manager Marketing and PR, David May says SchoolAid is a terrific way to align Jetstar’s already established World Vision ‘StarKids’ program with SchoolAid’s work to benefit children in the disadvantaged Asian communities they service.

May says Jetstar is very proud to partner with SchoolAid in this unique Awards program, fostering positive change in school communities both here and abroad.

SchoolAid’s inaugural Kids Helping Kids Awards is open for entry until 15 September, with entries coming in from schools in each and every state and territory in Australia.

SchoolAid says interest in the Awards and the work of SchoolAid delivers an overwhelming message from educators that the Awards program provides much needed acknowledgement of the estimated $11 million generated for charities and kids in need by schools-based giving in Australia each year.

The Awards will recognise and reward the outstanding fundraising achievements of Australian school kids, as well as the tireless work of the teachers and principals helping to develop the next generation of philanthropists.

In addition to the Jetstar partnership providing travel for the Awards Ambassadors to visit winnings schools and the provision of a prize for the overall winning school, other partners, Microsoft and Cartoon Network are providing a range of technology and entertainment prizes to recognise and reward these achievements, whilst the Tim Fairfax FamilyFoundation is a primary supporter of the Awards.

Since SchoolAid was founded in 1999 by former school Principal and Gold Duke of Edinburgh recipient, Sean Gordon, over $2.5 million has been raised by 200,000 school students across Australia and distributed to child-focused programs from Victoria to Banda Aceh, from Katherine to Cambodia.
