A Day in May
Each year, your school can help make a difference to the lives of Aussie children and families living with cancer through holding ‘A Day in May’.
Challenge invites schools to participate by nominating one day within the month of May where students can come to school dressed as their favourite POPSTAR, or in the campaign’s official colour, YELLOW, in return for a gold coin donation.
All funds raised are directed towards the Musical Moments Trust, which provides funded scholarships for pre and primary school aged children, who have cancer or a life-threatening blood disorder. The scholarships provide these children with opportunities to access music based activities such as music therapy sessions, musical instruments or music and dance lessons.
Besides making a real difference to the lives and happiness of children living with cancer and raising awareness of just how important music is to seriously ill children, your school will also go into the draw to win $1,000 worth of musical instruments.
The Musical Moments Trust was established in memory of an inspirational little boy who, regardless of his treatment and what was happening around him, positively embraced life and surrounded those around him with happiness. Yellow was his favourite colour and one vital resource that assisted him with having a positive attitude was music. This included singing, dancing, playing an instrument and creating songs.
