LETS GET THIS BALL ROLLING and bring the news as it happens to all the Kidds With Cameras and bring them up to speed. Once again, we’re looking forwards to a BIG YEAR, and lots of foto fun with camera challenges to test the skills of the camera holders. Firstly though, lets say thanks to McDonalds restaurant on Bourke street for their support.
The KIDzPIKz greeting cards sit centre stage on the display counter at McDonald’s at 406 Bourke St. Store manager Nanndy oversees the work as he was the one being instr umental in accepting the offer. This is a simple gesture by the FOCUS FORCE KWC in paying tribute to those gone, not only in Bourke St, but many other similar and sad events around the world.

This creates a buzz with the news of one family doing the rounds on the possibility of getting to the event. They are currently looking at ways of raising money in their quest, and FOCUS FORCE is pondering at how they can be supported. Your ideas will be a bonus. If any others would like to throw their hats in the ring, please send us an email and we will get the ball through the hoop.
