Another massive thank you to Red Frogs Western Australia for inviting Christine to MC their Charity Appeal last night!
We love supporting those who support youth in need and each year Christine goes down to Leavers with Hayden Glass and the team to broadcast Drive live.
Red Frogs WA alone took 6,524 phone calls from Leavers in need last year. For those who haven’t heard of them, here’s a bit of info:
Red Frogs is a support program that provides direct relief from alcohol and drug related issues that are known to cause anxiety, pain, poverty, sickness, suffering, distress, misfortune, disability, destitution, helplessness.
Red Frogs recognises that the culture of young people is dominated by alcohol and that excessive consumption of alcohol and other substances can lead to dangerous and life-altering behaviors’ and circumstances.
Therefore Red Frogs make it their mission to provide direct relief by;
- Being a positive peer presence in alcohol-fuelled environments where young people gather and,
- Educating young people on safe partying behaviors’ and understanding the consequences of their actions and,
- Promoting and providing non alcoholic and/or diversionary activities that engage young people in these environments and,
- Being a point of referral to professional services and providing pastoral care for young people who are suffering from alcohol abuse, substance abuse, physical harm, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, self-harm, attempted suicide or who are otherwise in a state of helplessness, distress or misfortune.
