“The response fBentleigh sec 2014rom students and staff was fantastic. We raised enough to change the lives of ten children in Bangladesh and it was a fantastic way to improve spelling. It also created community awareness about children in a developing country born with a cleft palate or lip and taught students about doing something for the “greater good of humanity.”

We would like to encourage students and teachers across Australia to get involved.
