The proceeds from the raffle at the VAME show are donated to the Mirabel Foundation.
The Mirabel Foundation remains the only organization in Australia working specifically with children orphaned or abandoned due to parental illicit drug use. Many of whom are now being raised by grandparents. Mirabel believes that every child deserves a childhood and the generosity of the community ensures we never turn a child away.
All Mirabel programs are developed to ensure that these vulnerable children are given the best opportunities to succeed in life. From educational support to addressing emotional challenges, all our activities are designed to restore a sense of hope and belonging to these young lives. Whether it’s graduation from school or experiencing positive childhood memories, your donation will assist them in developing a fulfilling and stable future.
On behalf of everyone at Mirabel, our heartfelt thanks for supporting these children and our work.
One of our VAME members, Lyn M. has made many miniature shops, sheds and kitchens for the children to play with:
Each child receives a box with a letter of ownership and a photo of how the interior looked originally.
Lyn made the beautiful Christmas cabinets for the grandparents.
