South Australian not-for-profit organisation KickStart for Kids(KSFK) has teamed up with Australian Fashion Labels’ (AFL) The Fifth Label to create – Come Together – a collaborative movement with a powerful message, that aims to increase SA’s awareness of KSFK and raise much needed funds for underprivileged children across the state.
Come Together is the brain child of CEO and Founder of KSFK, Ian Steel, and Co-Founder of AFL, Melanie Flintoff, who want to establish an event that will focus on women and the impact they have on our community and share the vital ‘Come Together’ message – because every child, regardless of their background, should have a chance.
To launch, the Come Together team will host a lunch that will take place on Thursday, August 29 from 12pm – 3pm at the Published Arthouse. Working with AFL’s The Fifth Label, a limited-edition t-shirt line has been created and will be sold to help raise significant funds and increase awareness about the work KSFK does to help disadvantaged children across the state.
It’s a sombre fact that not all kids get an equal start in life, even in our affluent society. KSFK provides positive educational and self-esteem outcomes to underprivileged children through breakfast and lunch programs, mentoring and camps. Thankfully, SA charity Kickstart for Kids (KSFK) each week supports 350 schools by providing about 50,000 breakfasts and 10,000 lunches, with the help of more than 1200 volunteers.
For $99, guests can enjoy a grazing lunch courtesy of Chopping Board catering, raw treats from Love Jamu, Bird in Hand pours, The Fifth Label’s Come Together t-shirt and entertainment from acoustic guitarist Matt O’Brien.
