Welcome to my WordPress blog to promote my campaign ‘Make Them Bloom’. My social media campaign is focused on raising awareness of child poverty in Australia. In a country as rich as Australia, it seems strange that we would even have a poverty problem, let alone one that specifically affects children (from ages 6-16).
However Australia is a first world developed nation with one of the highest child poverty rates in the world. It is important that we understand the prevalence of this phenomenon and the main causes behind poverty.
Throughout the next couple of weeks I am going to shed light on the issues of poverty, inequality, unemployment and homelessness.
Help support the fight against child poverty and make these children bloom!
