Our fundraisers AND PROGRAMS



Developed by Becy and Presented by Jason, the YOWIE program has reached over 3100 students in rural and remote school. The YOWIE program introduces inspirational Aussies to our children- highlighting that everyone has a story and face all sorts of challenges to achieving their dreams. The children are delighted to welcome Jason into their schools and listen intently to his messages of hope, resilience and determination.

"It doesn't matter where you come from, where you live. what challenges you face in life - anything is possible if you believe in yourself and follow your dreams" Jason

This program has been very popular with both the students and teachers, along with Jason's messages of motivation and a singalong every child receives a workbook, colouring in pencils, stationary supplies and at Christmas time every child receives a Christmas Gift.

A new addition to the YOWIE visits is the inclusion of a Calm Corner Pack, which comprises of Lego for the school to either add to or create a calm corner for children to access and gather their thoughts.

Kids In-need Santa Sacks

Partnering with 4 Health facilities in 2023, Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids are proud to introduce and endorse the KISS Program.

We are so proud to have the support of Health Facilities in Dubbo, Wellington, Bathurst and the Childrens Hospital in Brisbane to have reached a further 99 children. Each of these children were identified as being from struggling rural families who were in need of a helping hand with gifts.

We sincerely thank each of the kind and generous staff who volunteered their time to ensure the joy of Christmas was shared with these families. Each of these facilities undertook fundraising in their own community and were able to ensure all funds and goodies stayed within their community.

If you would like to find out more about this program and are interested in bringing the KISS program to your local Health Service, please contact us below.

Founded in 2019, Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids has grown from humble beginnings of a Go Fund Me Page to a respected and hard working children’s charity. On a road trip from Townsville to Dubbo Jason and Becy were horrified at the devastation of the land and the dead and dying livestock and wildlife.  It was a chance encounter with a droving family that they decided that they needed to do something to help the farmers and rural communities out during the horrific drought.

Every dollar makes a huge difference and we are so grateful for your consideration of leaving a gift to ensure that we are able to continue reaching families and kids doing it tough

the stories behind the donations

Assisting rural schools and students

We were very excited in 2023 to launch the YOWIE School Program in Jason and Becy's home area of Central West NSW.  Following trialing the pilot program over 2 years, 21 rural schools in 5 states it was a proud moment to launch the program to very enthusiastic students in Stuart Town, Mumbil, Geurie, Dubbo and Eumungerie.

Also, in May and June 2023 we were honoured to welcome Country Music Singer Tania Kernaghan into our school visits in regional NSW. We were so thrilled that Tania volunteered her time to meet over 1300 school students and share the most hilarious stories as well as amazing singalongs together with Jason.

Jason and his Mum Pattie hit the roads on 28th November through to 15th December 2022, covering over 10000km and meeting over 1000 Rural Aussie Kids. Even though hampered by flooding Jason and Pattie were able to successfully get to every school - except one. The flooding around Bourke NSW meant that they had to backtrack and travel hundreds of kms out of their way to get to Queensland - and that was their first day. We are very grateful to all the schools that welcomed Jason and Pattie into their schools. This year was the first year to enter the Northern Territory and Jason and Pattie were thrilled to be welcomed into Tennant Creek, Mungkarta and Yulara Schools. Such an amazing journey and adventure through the isolated outback of Australia.

During 2019, 2020 and 2021 Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids has been privileged to visit or assist multiple small rural schools and have touched the lives of over 1600 children in regional NSW, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria.

In December 2020 Jason and his Mum Pattie set off on a mammoth 8000km road trip over 10 days visiting over 20 schools in 4 states, kicking off with a visit to Wongarbon School in central NSW. With every child in every school receiving a Christmas Gift and Jason giving a motivational chat about following your dreams and no dream is too big to achieve. Jason also sang his newly released Christmas Song - So this is Christmas with the children and was surprised and delighted with the children joining in.
