Little Windmills loves country kids! We reckon Hope, Health and Happiness should be a staple part of every Aussie kids childhood. When kids from around remote, rural and regional Australia are doing it tough we step in and lend a hand. We financially assist families who have children who are seriously sick, injured or have special needs. By subsidising things like medical costs, travel and accommodation and providing essential equipment and services, we relieve some of the financial burden on families and allow mums and dads to focus on what’s important, the wellbeing of their little one.
Little Windmills works directly with families, hospitals and other organisations and tailors the support we provide to meet each families unique needs in their darkest hours. Its through the invaluable support of Australians who generously donate, purchase Little Windmills Lottery tickets or support our events that we can meet the needs of the country children who need us.
100% of all public donations received by Little Windmills is directed to the country kids who need it! We’re passionate about supporting country families with kids doing it tough throughout rural and regional Australia.
