Good Morning to you all!
Today is August 9th, also recognised as Red Nose Day around the world. In Australia, we raise awareness for those who are stricken with the tragedy of the death of a child. Annually, 3,200 Australian families experience the sudden and unexpected death of a baby or child. This has to stop. Through world-class research, advocacy and education we can put an end to this. Red Nose Day helps to raise awareness and funds for this very purpose.
Through the fundraising efforts of charities such as Red Nose Australia (Formerly SIDS & Kids ), we have been able to reduce SIDS by 85% and raise over $17 million to invest in lifesaving research. There is still a ways to go, so we continue to recognise this day in an effort to stop little lives being cut short once and for all.
If you are able, please donate to this very worthy cause. And if you can't, show your support by wearing a red nose, or sharing this post so that others can be informed of this important day.
Thank you, and have a lovely day.
- The Team at Survivor's R Us.

The kids of Bellata Primary School are wanting to go to Canberra in Term 4 of this year. Due to the drought some of the families are finding it really tough financially. We would love to be able to help these families out so that the kids can go on this excursion. We believe that every child should have the chance to experience going to our nation's capital.

Survivor's R Us is proud to be associated with OzHarvest and their efforts in helping those in need with their Food Rescue program.
As a local charity organisation, we are invested in supporting the local community, and the people at OzHarvest are doing their best in finding ways to rescue unused and surplus food and produce from all types of food providers including fruit and vegetable markets, supermarkets, hotels, wholesalers, farmers, stadiums, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centres, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots and boardrooms.
On occasion, OzHarvest will deliver their Rescued Food to Survivor's R Us, and those details are posted on https://www.facebook.com/Survivorsrusincorporated/" target="_blank">our Social Media pages, We often receive a variety of food and produce during the week and promote this as soon as it is available.
OzHarvest doesn't just rescue food, they also have NEST, food and cooking training sessions to introduce people to cooking with fresh produce and making quick, nutritious and healthy meals for themselves. Their chefs introduce people to cooking new or interesting meals, how to manage leftovers, how to balance convenience with nutritional needs and much more.
OzHarvest has been operating in Newcastle since 2010 and we are proud to have OzHarvest supporting Survivor's R Us as an establishing Charity Organisation and helping us out.
