THESE kids know a good cause when they see one.
Responding to the Soul Cafe’s call for donations as part of a new campaign to help Newcastle’s homeless and disadvantaged, the pre-schoolers at Mayfield Early Learning Centre wanted to make a difference.
Guided by a book about “filling your bucket” – the notion that performing good deeds is a means for happiness – the kids collected and wrapped blankets for Friday’s Sleepout for Soul, where more than 100 will sleep rough at Newcastle Foreshore to raise vital funds.
The blankets were donated to the charity on Thursday.
“They were really excited to take part,” Mayfield Early Learning Centre’s Alysse Ivancic said. “They came away with so many questions about why the people were there and what else they could do to help.”
