2 min read
Chris was visiting the Gold Coast to attend the 600 Supercar event when he received a phone call telling him that he had won a brand-new Mercedes-Benz in the Act for Kids Draw 69. When Chris had received the news, he was in absolute shock. As part of the prize, Chris had the choice of two Mercedes-Benz models, a C200 Cabriolet or a SLC200 Roadster. “It was like finding out you’ve won the lottery…oh wait! I did win a lottery! I was delighted to choose…the Cabriolet.” Chris had also mentioned that he was so excited about the news that he told his mum to sit down while he broke the news about he had won and he was off to collect his winnings. “I flew to Brisbane to take delivery of the car and even when the keys were in my hand, it still didn’t feel real!”
Not only was Chris delighted about his brand new car, he was happy to have supported a good cause. “I like to support charities that do good work and actually help people. I know it may sound cliché, but children are our future, and the work and help that Act for Kids does goes a long way to ensuring that the future for abused and neglected children is a brighter one.”

Why support Act for Kids
Act for Kids is an Australian charity providing free therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced or are at risk of child abuse and neglect. When Act for Kids first met Macie, she was only 8 years old. She was having severe flashbacks, nightmares and anxiety relating to her many years of witnessing domestic and family violence at home. Due to the trauma, Macie was falling behind at her school because of language difficulties and anxiety. She had a severe stutter and made her speech impossible to understand. Act for Kids Integrated Therapy team worked with Macie to address her speech and language delays with a goal of helping her catch up to her peers. Macie worked with our psychologist to learn strategies to reduce her anxiety and as her speech improved, so did her confidence. Your support helps more children like Macie overcome their trauma and experience a safe and happy childhood.
