Burleigh Heads helps raise funds for The Alannah and Madeline Foundation

June 15, 2011 by  

A print company can provide useful printing services to the local community, but it can also contribute to positive social change in that community too. For instance, MobileMuster and the Old Phones Safe Kids campaign have collaborated with an Australian print company in Burleigh Heads West to raise money for The Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

This foundation looks after children who are victims of violence, and it operates programs that support the prevention of violence against children. The foundation is in memory of Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, who died on the day of the 1996 Port Arthur Massacre. MobileMuster has pledged $20,000 to help the cause.

The funds raised by the campaign are going towards a great cause in the eSmart school program. The program is a cutting edge program to assist schools in dealing with bullying, cyber-bullying and cyber-safety. This world-leading system for cyber-safety in Australian schools is easy to use, and has been shown to improve cyber-safety management and reduce cyber-bullying. The success of the program has caught the attention of the Victorian Government and Queensland Government, which have planned to initiate eSmart in all of their state schools within the following four years.

eSmart provides a clear and valuable blueprint to direct schools in producing a workable, school-wide system for bullying and cyber-safety issues. The eSmart program saves time for teachers and other school staff by giving easy web access to top resources in the nation and worldwide. The eSmart program was produced by educators and is based on the intelligent application of digital technologies for enhancing interactivity in education.
