Your support makes a difference

We'll also donate $1 for every new Reading Eggs signup we receive during the event here. By taking part in #ReadLearnEmpower this year, you'll be supporting The Smith Family's crucial education programs like Learning for Life, which helps more than 56,000 young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds succeed at school and create better futures for themselves.

The flagship Learning for Life program provides financial support for school essentials, like uniforms and books. It also provides access to additional learning programs before and after school – tailored to each child’s individual needs. And it matches each child with a dedicated team member at The Smith Family to help them get to school, stay at school and go on to further training or work.
