About CaringKids and CaringKids Founder Margaret Skagias
Caring Kids has evolved into an organisation that collects and recycles pre-loved toys, packages them into Toy Boxes and sends them out to children who are caring for ill or disabled family member across Australia. We provide these incredible kids with the tools of childhood.
Margaret says, "My vision for CaringKids is to honour the contribution of special needs siblings and young carers. They are often overlooked and forgotten. We work with partner charities to give these children the recognition and support they need, and most importantly, to put a smile on their face and acknowledge them."
