Sarah Joyce is a proud Yorta Yorta woman and mother of four children. In 2018 Sarah and her children were sent on a MGF first ever holiday which helped her and her children reconnect as a family unit. Since then Sarah has been an advocate for the MGF.
In 2019, Leanne and her son Jack went on their first ever holiday together through MGF. Since then Leanne has graduated from university and Jack has gained casual employment.
My vision to establish the Magical Getaway Foundation (MGF) was to provide hope to vulnerable or disadvantaged Australian children and families.
Despite their current circumstances, they have so much to give back to other people. Sadly though, their struggle is to just get through each day.
Feelings of sadness, desperation, vulnerability and helplessness overwhelm them.
There is no hope.
These children and families deserve, and have a right to, a better future.
The Magical Getaway Foundation provides such an opportunity through the gift of first ever getaways/holidays.
It’s not about the holiday, it’s what the holiday brings including closer family ties, increased
self-esteem, expansion of social networks, skills development, improvements in mental health and greater participation in education and paid work.
In return, the Foundation gathers the recipients'’ stories of courage and resilience to share with others, to bring hope.
Please support the Magical Getaway Foundation to bring hope to the 1 in 3 Australian children who have never been on a holiday, not even a weekend away.
Together we will break the cycle.
