COVIDSAFE AND CONTACTLESS FUNDRAISING
We are saddened by the worldwide pandemic and our thoughts with everyone who has been affected. We know that the pandemic has placed untold economic pressure across Australia and that many schools and clubs are struggling to raise funds in a safe way. We are pleased to be able to offer a safe contactless way of fundraising. Read below for more info.
Our online ordering system means that you can choose to receive all payments and orders online. No cash and no handling of money
Kites are delivered within 2 weeks of receiving your order with an authority to leave at the door. You can arrange a collection day where people can social distance and you can ensure that people attend at different times, or in a staggered way.
Exercise is allowed in family groups. So take your kite and fly it at your local park.
Our fundraising contains no food and requires no gatherings. It’s just good old fashioned outdoor fun.
Why kites are so great for fundraising
We know you want a fundraiser that includes everyone, where are children can be part of the fun. Food fundraisers just can’t do that. It is really hard to find something which everyone can eat, and then you also want to make sure the parents are supportive of the choice you have made. The good news is that everyone loves kites and our kites are perfect all all children aged 3-12! And kites are super healthy – even psychologists agree!
Healthy – gets kids and families outside!
We think this is the best reason of all. Flying kites is great exercise. It also teaches children lots of things other than just how to fly a kite. It teaches them about aerodynamics and about the weather. It also teaches them perseverance and resilience. It’s a great family activity too – from 2-year-olds to 100-year-olds love flying kites. You can make a day of it and take your kites and a picnic to the beach or a local oval. If you are a group, you could even create a whole event around kite flying and charge an entry fee which includes their kite and a snack. So many possibilities!
Being mindful of your current surroundings fosters acute awareness of the here and now. That awareness, in turn, has a number of proven health benefits, including improved pain management and decreased anxiety and depression. Research has also shown that it’s associated with anatomic changes in areas of the brain involved in memory, learning, and emotion.
Boosts Creativity and Reduces Stress
Kite flying develops creative thinking, both in the making of the kite as well as flying and adapting it to changes in the wind. It also will regenerate energy and has a way of reducing stress and tension of everyday life. Watching a kite drift across the sky, it’s easy to become relaxed, temporarily letting go of today’s headaches and tomorrow’s deadlines.
Good for the neck
So many of us sit at work all day staring at a screen or downwards at paperwork. As we look upward, our necks open, an important counterbalance to looking down or at eye level. Those who sit at a desk all day are at high risk of cervical disease, and while flying a kite, one can maintain the cervical spine and spinal muscle tension. This promotes the flexibility of ligaments and vertebral joints and prevents degenerative changes, and increases bone metabolism, which can help prevent cervical disease.
In the world which is focused on the beauty of the person, kites are a great way to recognise the beauty of an object. A colourful kite soaring gracefully overhead is a lovely sight. Making your own kite can be an act of artistry and creativity. But even the selection of a store-bought kite is a mode of personal expression and a celebration of what’s beautiful to you. Think of it as having happiness on a string.
