See the Adventures of Ferdinand the Bull and Help a Charity
School holidays are once again almost here and if you are looking for ways to "entertain" your children, here is a great idea!

Take them to a magical movie matinee to create some excitement and this is aimed at raising awareness and funds for "Sponsor a Teacher" in Cambodia programme. The SCOOP Australia Foundation is a Perth based not-for-profit organisation supporting teachers and children out of poverty in India and Cambodia by providing them with access to education.

The movie is this year's feel-good film which reminds us to "be strong, brave and true to yourself" and Ferdinand inspired the world by being himself.

All profits from the movie screening will go towards paying the wages for three teachers at SCAO Cambodia. Your support will impact the lives of teachers and children at these schools.

Ferdinand tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart!

After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and dragged from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure.

The movie is set in Spain and Ferdinand goes on to proves you can't judge a bull by its cover. John Cena voices Ferdinand, a gentle bull who is captured by bullfighters because of his large size and taken away from his human family to participate in Spanish bull-fighting and goes on an adventure to return home.

However, because he hates violence, the bull decides he must escape with the help of some animal allies.

From Blue Sky Studios and Carlos Saldanha, the director of "Rio" and inspired by the beloved book "The Story of Ferdinand" written by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson, "Ferdinand" is a heartwarming animated comedy adventure with an all-star cast that includes the voices of John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Cannavale, Peyton Manning, Miguel Angel Silvestre, David Tennant, Flula Borg, Jerrod Carmichael, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Juanes, Boris Kodjoe, Karla Martínez, Jeremy Sisto, and Sally Phillips.

The movie is a family comedy, is great fun for both young and old, and is directed by Carlos Saldanha.

Here is a trailer for the movie:

The SCOOP Foundation Australia Inc is a Perth based non-profit organisation committed to supporting children out of poverty. They are run totally by committed volunteers who want to create lasting change.

Their intent is to bring care, growth and equity to the communities that they work with, and this is done through service, respect and transparency.

They are the Australian division of The SCOOP Foundation, an Irish based non-profit Organisation founded in 2008. This unique structure means they have already secured partnerships with two grassroots organisations based in Cambodia and India. Their purpose is to raise money to support these organisations in building schools to provide free education for children living in poverty.

They also provide deep, life-changing sustainable support, partnering with local NGO's, developing organic programmes that touch the lives of the most vulnerable children in meaningful and tangible ways.

Their partners give them regular updates to ensure their donors and supporters are involved in every step of their projects, the stories of the children they are helping, as well as the daily challenges and triumphs of their work.
