Free Dress Day (PP-Yr 12) – Tuesday, 18 February 2020
On Tuesday, 18 February Brisbane Christian College is hosting a free dress day on all three of our campuses, to raise money to provide relief to individuals and families who have been affected by bushfires. The theme is red and yellow to show support for the many brave firefighters who continue to risk their lives to selflessly help others.
All funds raised will be given to the Australian Christian Churches International (ACCI) Bushfire Relief Appeal who provide much-needed relief during the initial emergency. This includes:
- food distribution to emergency services and affected families
- providing clothing and other emergency supplies
- giving practical support to farmers, including livestock feed
- supporting chaplains.
The funds will also be used to support communities to recover and rebuild in the months following this disaster. We are continuing to work closely with our Australian Christian Churches (ACC) Churches and Chaplains, so communities affected receive the help they need.
We usually ask for a gold coin donation to participate in College free dress days however we ask that you prayerfully consider how your family can contribute to this cause.
You are not expected to go out and purchase outfits for this free dress day, however, as you prepare, we encourage you to have a discussion as a family about the opportunity we have to be a blessing to others and pray for those who are experiencing this crisis.
