Give Me 5 for Kids is 25 this year

Tuesday 07 May, 2019


Southern Cross Austereo’s annual Give Me Five for Kids fundraiser launches next month.

With national ambassadors TV & media personality Shelley Craft, NRL Manly Sea Eagles player Trent Hodkinson and social media influencer Kat Springer, aka The Organised Housewife, all on board they'll be hoping to make it the most successful year yet by helping to raise more money than ever before.
Now in its 25th year, Give Me Five for Kids has raised over $25.9 million for paediatric wards of local hospitals and children’s health-related charities across SCA’s 38 regional markets. Held each year in June, the fundraiser relies on the support and generosity of the local communities.
Local communities are encouraged to get involved and dig deep, helping SCA hit its national target of $3.7 million.
2019 ambassador Shelley Craft says, “I am so excited and proud to be an official ambassador for Give Me 5 For Kids 2019. It’s a great initiative which not only supports sick kids but aims to help their families and the hospitals to make a big difference in their lives.”
Give Me 5 For Kids Director and SCA Chief Operating Officer, John Kelly,  says; “We are constantly amazed by the kindness of the community each year and would like to thank them for always digging deep and supporting this very worthy cause. To see the program grow from a simple coin drive on the NSW Central Coast in the 1990’s into a national annual vent benefiting more than 40 paediatric wards in local community hospitals across Australia is truly remarkable.”
