Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation Limited



We know that being social and active can have a positive impact on your mental health. Even better, it also helps raise funds for resilience-building programs that empower Australian kids to reach their highest potential.  

Can you help us leap towards positive change for kids living in families with mental illness?

The Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation offers a range of programs specifically developed to support and empower young people living in families with mental illness.

Each service promotes mental health literacy and teaches safe, positive help-seeking behaviours, all while uniting young people from similar situations to ensure they feel understood and supported.

This cause aims to grow awareness of the 1.1 million Australian kids living in families impacted by mental illness and to raise the funds needed to reach as many of those young people as possible.

Here’s how you can help:

Step one: Set up your unique crowd-raiser using this page (the first 700 receive a free skipping rope/registration pack thanks to Defence Health).

Step two: Set a target to help you stay on track for your goal. We challenge you to participate in one of the following ways:

OPTION A: Skip for 4 minutes a day during Mental Health Week (10th to 18th October). 

- Ideal for schools and individuals - 

OPTION B: Skip continuously for 4 hours on
Friday 16th October (join the Kookaburra Kids team’s live-streamed event from 1pm to 5pm AEDT). 

- Ideal for businesses and large teams - 

OPTION C: Can’t skip? Skip into a healthy habit you can practise daily during Mental Health Week. For example you could, increase water intake, reduce screen time or spend time outdoors. 

Step three: Tell your family and friends why you’re participating in Skip4Kids and share your cause with as many people as you can! (Share via email, social media, phone calls ... the sky’s the limit!) Then, ask those people to kindly support you. 

Step four: Use your goal to skip towards a better future for Kookaburra kids! (Keep skipping and fundraising as much as you can in the leadup to your ‘Skip-off’ finale on 18th October!)
