About Us

Give Me 5 for Kids is Southern Cross Austereo’s national fundraiser which has been supporting and raising funds for local children’s hospital wards across regional Australia for the last 20 years. Beginning in the mid-'90s as a simple coin drive from the Central Coast region, this annual charity drive has since raised $22.3 million nationally, and benefited over 40 children’s hospital wards.

Each June, our local radio and television networks get behind the cause by holding local fundraising events. To see what’s on this year and to participate, check out our Get Involved section. Can’t get along to an event? No worries. You can donate online anytime.

Thanks to the open hearts and generosity of the public, we continue to raise more funds annually for our local children’s hospital wards, and make a real difference to the lives of sick local kids.
