Such a Sweet Show!

The number is staggering...it costs RSPCA NSW just over $39 million to operate in the last financial year.

The Education Team did the maths - yes, we're not just good for animal welfare education! With the New South Wales population last recorded at 7.2 million people, if each person donated just $5.40, all the animals can sleep a little easier knowing that RSPCA NSW would be around to help them in their time of need. But alas, as hard as it is to believe, not everyone loves animals enough to donate so when we say “every dollar counts” we really mean it!

With the festive season upon us, many of those dollars may be spent on pressies for friends and family so the RSPCA NSW Education Team would like to thank two schools who have instead donated funds to their furry friends!

A round of applause to two Year 9 students from Macquarie College who ran a very successful lolly shop as part of their commerce elective. ‘The Sweetest Thing’ operated for just a single day yet it was enough to rake in a lovely $120!
Now a standing ovation for students from Leppington Public School whose Student Representative Council chose RSPCA NSW as a worthy cause for their fundraising activities. They ran a “Have-A-Go-Show” where students were invited to showcase their talents and asked contestants and the audience to donate a little money, collecting a wonderful $103.30!
If you’ve run an equally awesome fundraiser, we would love to hear all the jiucy details! Drop us a line at education@rspcansw.org.au
Fundraising? Ooh, pick me! I'm in! I can do it!
