YGAP 5Cent Campaign 2016
Forever New is proud to support the YGAP 5cent campaign again in 2016, working towards a world where every child has access to a quality education.
Thank you to all our valued Forever New customers in Australia and New Zealand who donated to the 2016 5cent Campaign, available in our stores from Monday 23rd May to Sunday 5th June 2016.
We raised the incredible sum of over $15,000 AUD which will help YGAP, support local heroes with local solutions to local problems, changing lives in some of the world’s toughest communities.
Your valued support will improve global access to education, by helping local heroes:
- Remove barriers to accessing education
- Provide children with the resources they need to stay in school
- Increase their capacity to succeed
Since 2012, the 5cent campaign has collected almost 11 million coins, changing the lives of 155,379 people.
There are over $150 million five-cent coins in circulation, yet only 100 five-cent coins can significantly improve access to a quality education.
We highly value our ongoing partnership with YGAP and are proud to support the inspiring efforts of this organisation.
