It’s really special to be part of an organisation that is determined to see children and their families being supported and loved while on a really difficult journey; and ultimately, to see these children overcome their health challenges. The GFA does an outstanding job at raising the necessary funding that allows these precious children to continue to receive what is truly world-class care.”

“I am so honoured to be a Good Friday Appeal Ambassador. They do incredible work in supporting our wonderful Royal Children’s Hospital. As a parent I am more grateful than ever for the extraordinary efforts of GFA and the RCH, both of which are filled with all different types of real life superheroes.”

Hayden and Carlee Clements – Actors and Advocates

“We are grateful to be given the opportunity to be an ambassador for The Good Friday Appeal and Generation Give. When you give back you have a sense of purpose and volunteering is deeply rewarding. We want to be part of a generation who cares about and values the well being of all members of the community. We want to help make a difference because I believe everyone deserves the chance to have a good life.”

Carly Findlay – Australian Writer

“I spent a lot of time at the Royal Children’s Hospital as a child – as an outpatient and inpatient. It gave me a sense of community in a very isolating time. Going to the RCH school was a highlight for me. As an adult, I mentored young people in the Chronic Illness Peer Support Program – again, I saw the importance of connection and relatability for young, chronically ill people. I gained as much out of mentoring as the young people gained out of the peer program. So it’s an incredible honour to be an ambassador for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal  – giving back to a cause that helps so many.”
