All through March and April, $2 for every hire in-store or online at Kennards Hire will go toward a children's charity around Australia. The Kennards for Kids campaign helps organisations to help those children most in need in our communities. It really is hire for a higher purpose.

Each state and territory is partnering with a different charity throughout the campaign, and Variety - the Children's Charity is the chosen organisation in Victoria.

"Kennards for Kids is such a worthwhile campaign and that's why we continue to run it year after year."

"Kennards for Kids is such a worthwhile campaign and that's why we continue to run it year after year," commented General Manager of Kennards Hire Victoria, Neil Masterson.

"New and loyal customers have shown such great support for Kennards for Kids in the past, and, with their help, I look forward to seeing what we can achieve again this year."

How will Kennards Hire help Variety this year?

Variety - the Children's Charity helps kids with sickness, disabilities or any disadvantage to be part of a community. The organisation helps them to communicate and travel, integrate into wider communities and attend mainstream schools and events where possible.

Their work involves increasing the self-esteem of the kids they're working with, improving their mobility and giving them the chance to communicate with the people around them. It's about building confidence and making sure each person feels valued, regardless of the situation they're in.

"Variety - the Children's Charity is thrilled to partner with one of our major supporters, Kennards Hire, for the Kennards for Kids campaign, once again," said Variety spokesperson Jessica Hickey.

"This innovative, grassroots initiative not only raises funds for kids in need across the country, but raises awareness for our cause to Kennards Hire's broad customer base.

"Variety brings sunshine to the lives of thousands of children through our Sunshine Coaches. Schools and other organisations have been the grateful recipients of a fleet of over 1,236 travelling Australia, transporting children to their daily activities, excursions and other external learning experiences. This year, we aim to provide a Victorian school with a new Sunshine Coach. These can be wheelchair-modified and are used to get kids out and about in the community. Each year these buses directly impact the lives of hundreds of school children."

For Victorian residents and businesses, any hire through Kennards Hire will help to fund a new Sunshine Coach. You'll be helping a school to provide for children in need - children with disabilities that might otherwise miss out on external learning activities - but you'll also be providing opportunities for children to integrate into normal community environments away from the hospital or care facility.

What is Kennards for Kids all about?

We make sure the donations are used specifically to help the kids and their families.

For nearly 20 years, Kennards Hire has partnered with organisations around Australia and New Zealand to help sick and disadvantaged kids to reach their full potential. Kennards Hire has helped charities that support both kids and their families through times of need, so each person can live the life they deserve.

It's more than just giving money to an organisation that can be used to fund the charity - we make sure the donations are used specifically to help the kids and their families.

Anyone can support the Kennards for Kids campaign this March or April - simply head into your local Kennards Hire branch, or go online and book your equipment. For each hire in Victoria, we'll donate $2 to Variety - the Children's Charity so they can provide a new Sunshine Coach to a Victorian school.
