THE LITTLE LEGEND STORY
The Little Legends Foundation was established in 2021 with a mission to positively impact the lives of Australia's sick and disabled children. Unfortunately too many children across Australia have their childhood experiences dulled by needles, hospital visits, painful treatments or an exclusion from childhood activities due to a disability,
The Little Legends Foundation aims to tackle these issues with a hands on approach to ensure that all our Little Legends enjoy the childhood they all deserve.
Every young person within our care finds happiness, love and a family within the Foundation. Our achievements are the result of extensive research, ongoing commitment and the amazing support we receive from the Australian Public.
We know what kids and their families are facing when serious illness or disability consumes their lives.
We disrupt the relentless cycle of pain and trauma and offer a welcome break so that sick and disabled kids can simply be kids.
JUST A FEW OF
THE WAYS WE HELP!
Little Legends Foundation, aims to make childhood dreams a reality. Every year we plan and deliver wishes to our children that create a positive, lasting impact on their lives. The positive impact of these experiences is felt not only by the children but also the families and community.
HOSTING ACTIVITIES & EVENTS
Our activities embrace the principles of positive psychology where fun is an important factor in contributing to overall wellbeing. We provide distraction from fear and pain, and help our Little Legends create positive emotions, encourage social interaction, assist with identity formation and build self-esteem. We empower children to embrace their uniqueness and creativity.
PROVIDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT
Many of our Little Legends illnesses or disabilities can be quite expensive. Unfortunately many times we see the cost of medical supplies, mobility equipment and household disability access cause financial burden and stress on parents. Little Legends Foundation assists in covering these costs to ensure no family dynamic is effected at such a time.
OUR FUTURE GOALS
The Little Legends Foundation has established multiple programs that form the foundation of our vision. These programs have shown an amazing impact on each child in a multitude of different ways.
We are always seeking to build on these achievements and introduce new activities and experiences for our Little Legends. We are currently finding new sponsors and holding raffles to raise funds to establish a range of new programs.
WHAT WE ARE
LOOKING TO DO NEXT!
The Little Legends Foundation is. seeking to create ongoing motivational support groups that will be able to continue to support and encourage our children to dream big and aspire to be anything they want to be in life.
LITTLE LEGEND DOG
Dogs are amazing! Who could disagree! Little Legends Foundation is aiming to establish dog visits to the paediatric wards across Australia on an ongoing basis. This program is in development and once established will not only support local dog shelters, but will bring a smile to our Little Legends faces everyday.
CAMP OF LEGENDS
Many Australian adults will feel a sense of nostalgia when they think bank to school camps when they were growing up. Unfortunately our disabled Little Legends aren't catered for and often miss the chance to experience camps and the fun and friendships that come from them. The Little Legends Foundation is working towards opening a permanent camp for Australia's disabled children.
