Hi, I am Jason Thatcher, and myself and a team of dedicated mates are entering the bridge to Brisbane run in an effort to raise much needed awareness of the issues confronting families and children from a child Safety perspective. Secondly, the money raised will go towards the wonderful work the team at Foundations Care does in child safety.
So of all the charities and causes out there, why have I chosen child safety? To give a bit of an insight into my journey so far, I initially entered the child Safety and protection sector by accident by exiting children out of child sex trade and child pornography rings in Kings Cross which in turn led to giving evidence at the Royal Commission in the late 90’s. I did this for almost 8 years.
My day job at the time was a teacher and then principal for challenging behaviour students from K-12. In this time I also established alternative education settings for students exited from regular schools. And today I am the National Manager of Business Development for Foundations Care, an organisation that I am extremely passionate about.
I need your help to meet my fundraising goal and to spread the request for support far and wide. My goals are to raise $1000 for Foundations Care and to finish the 10km race as part of the Foundations Care team. Every dollar we raise will go towards assisting Foundations Care to provide safe, out-of-home placement for children and young people, who cannot live at home because their family can no longer look after them or they may be at risk of harm.
Anyone wishing to make a donation to help me reach my goal of $1000 can donate by phone, mail or online. All the information you need to do this is on this page.
Every little bit helps and will be greatly appreciated!
Alternatively if you would like to join my team and run with me for Foundations Care, the more the merrier and I would love to have you on board, just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will also be a huge help if you could circulate this request through your social networks, using the icons above.
Thanks again and wish us luck
