PUTTING THE FUN IN FUNDRAISING
People like you have helped us support causes like refuges for women & children fleeing domestic violence, paediatric child protection units across the country and most recently education for girls in Cambodia.
Together we’ve managed to raise over $600,000 and counting
THAT’S THE POWER OF KINDNESS
Bonnie the Bunny
THANKS to Virgin Australia these cute little guys have been flown to the Northern Territory in great numbers, destined to be comfort bunnies for children admitted to hospital with injuries from abuse or neglect. Virgin Australia’s Cargo team ensured these Nana Huchy Bonnie the Bunnies made it safely to kids who need a cuddle at a critical moment of care.
Each year Nana Huchy donate comfort bunnies, we sell the bunnies and donate 100% of the profits to charities that support some of Australia's most vulnerable children. So far we've donated $69,000 to Bravehearts, Barnardos and child protection units across the country and have delivered 1,600 bunnies to five states in Australia including NSW, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria and now the Northern Territory.
Sadly some children are admitted to hospital alone, confused and horribly injured after enduring unspeakable cruelty. This is where Bonnie the Bunny steps in and offers a touch of comfort at a very dark time in these children's lives.
Thanks to everyone who purchased a bunny in 2018 to donate to a child in need. We'll launch the 2019 campaign on March 17th. Stay tuned.
Gotta love a little #payitforward ❤️ #insteadofchocolate

These bracelets have been designed and made by Cambodia girls who have been rescued from exploitation. They are now not just survivors but are thriving and healing with purposeful employment. They have made these bracelets knowing they are going to be worn by YOU here in Australia. 100% of profits will go to supporting education programs for Cambodian girls so they have a real chance for a brighter and happier future.
