Ways to Get Involved

Two years of helping communities thrive

Since 2021, Life Ed has been working to reach as many children as possible in remote, rural and disadvantaged communities through the Thrive Children’s Fund. Because every child deserves to thrive – no matter where they live, where they’ve come from, or how much money they have.

The children in these communities are too often the isolated, the ones that are most at-risk of chronic disease, mental illness and substance abuse. They are the kids who need us most and thanks to our foundation partner, Woolworths, we have been able to deliver the latest evidence-based learning to nearly 10,000 of these students across Australia over the past two years. 

Did you know:


From the vastness of Arnhem Land in the NT and seclusion of Kangaroo Island in South Australia, through to the reaches of the WA Wheatbelt and NSW Murray River regions, it has been a privilege to meet so many children, parents, teachers and communities – many of which could not contain their excitement as they met Healthy Harold for the very first time. 

As times continue to be tough, with inflation and the cost-of-living on the rise, the housing crisis and natural disasters continuing to impact children and families across Australia, Life Ed and the Thrive Children’s Fund is needed more than ever. 



Woolworths is the foundation partner of the Life Ed Children’s Thrive Fund, contributing $250,000 over the past two years. And committing another $125,000 this year, which will enable us to reach up to 7,500 more kids in 2024. 

In 2023, we welcomed Sanitarium’s commitment to this cause, which will mean 3,000 children will benefit from participating in The Inside Story as part of the Thrive Children’s Fund in 2024. This will bring our Thrive total up to over 20,000 students by the end of next year!
