Make a giant splash for cash
On Friday 7th July, 2017 you get to jump back in time to be a kid again and join the hundreds of children, teachers and carers in schools, child care centres and kinders who will be willingly donning their 'welly boots' for a day of fun and laughter, as they jump in as many puddles as they can find in support of the worthwhile services of Puddle Jumpers Incorporated.

Puddle Jumpers is a non-profit organisation who are committed to the truth that all kids matter and deserve the right to engage in happy and fun experiences in their life.

Children and families deemed to be at risk are provided with holidays and recreational activities, such as day camps for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Their projects are designed to develop personal, social and cultural growth through encouraging the self-esteem, resilience and confidence of children to overcome life's challenges, as they learn to enjoy the fun and self expression that should characterize 'childhood.'

In other words they learn to overcome life's obstacles and learn to 'jump puddles.'

Wear Your Welly Boots Day is a major fundraiser through participating educational facilities. Encourage your children to actively splash a lot. I mean participate - no I don't - I mean splash a lot. But why should the children have all the fun?

How much fun would it be to register as a business or community group and wear your welly boots to work, Uni, TAFE: anywhere your feet take you? Go on, get a group together, you know the extrovert in you is tempted.

There is a growing demand for Puddle Jumpers services.
Take the challenge: raise as much money as you can, jump in as many puddles as you can find, have as much fun as you are able and you know I'm not just talking to the children.

To register for this epic splash for cash, phone or email Puddle Jumpers Inc. for your Wear Your Welly Boots Day registration kit.

Puddle Jumpers is a nod to the Australian classic, 'I Can Jump Puddles' by Alan Marshall who despite crippling poliomyelitis finds fun, laughter and joy in the Australian bush as he learns to play, climb, swim and ride.
