Stories of #GoodChange
For Phong and His Friends
Phong is in grade 7. He lives in Vietnam with his grandparents, parents and sister. As a farming family, with occasional work in the local village, they live on very low incomes.
Before Good Neighbours’ Christmas fundraiser, Phong didn’t have warm warm clothes or a winter jacket to wear. He explained:
Thanks to the generosity of our Christmas Crafternoon participants and community sponsors, Good Neighbours Australia raised money to provide Phong (and many kids like him) warm clothes.
In December, the local community gathered to decorate gift sacks at our first Christmas Crafternoon fundraiser, in Sydney.
Thank you to all our generous donors who participated in the event or gave to Good Neighbours last Christmas. At our next event, the Creative Kids Crafternoon on 03 June, 2023, there’s another opportunity for you to help us raise funds to buy bikes for children like Phong and his friends. Help make a #GoodChange today.
