BACK TO HOME BASE & FOCUS FORCE SETS THE PLAN FOR THE LAST TERM OF THE YEAR WITH THESE SCHEDULED PROJECTS & CAMERA CHALLENGES.
The last quarter of the year is always a busy period for the Kids With Cameras and inspiring challenges that will test the imagination and camera skills of those who take part.
FIRST OFF – McDONALDS McHAPPY DAY. October 14th – Be a Junior Official Photographer.
The Ron McDonald Houses are a special place for sick kids attending the children’s hospitals and getting extra special care from doctors recognised as best in the world. The houses fill a special place in this also providing comfort and accommodation to the parents and families of the children being treated. They are especially important for people from the country and outback who have nowhere else to stay in these trying times. So, that’s why FOCUS FORCE feels appropriate to offer the Kids With Cameras to wear the JOP badge on this fund-raising day.
