Make it a Red Letter Day Competition Letters

21:21:00 Dyslexia Australia 0 Comments

The Make it a Red Letter Day Competition began a little over seven weeks ago. The idea was to encourage children to express their feelings about living with dyslexia. Our hope was to create awareness in the general community and influence those in a position to create change to take action.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our incredible community - you have taken the Red Letter Campaign on board and we have made an impact. It has been a roller coaster of a journey this last seven weeks. Reading these letters has been joyous and heartbreaking in equal measure.

We would especially like to thank the children for participating, as we know the immense amount of strength it took for you to put all your vulnerabilities on the page for the world to see. In our eyes you are all beyond amazing, your voices are being heard and that helps all children. Thank you.

The competition has now closed with an amazing 103 entries, please take the time to look through all these letters if you have not yet. They will touch your heart and soul, and hopefully move you to advocate for much needed change in the education system.

A sincere and heartfelt thank you from the members of the organising committee. Victoria, Julie, Jen, Sarah, Anita, Carolyn, Heidi, Belinda and Maree.
