Register for Bravehearts - White Balloon Day on 6 September

Government research shows that 1 in 5 Australian children will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday, and that in 85% of cases, the offender is known to the child as a relative or trusted friend.
Hundreds of schools, councils, businesses and organisations around Australia are getting ready to show their support in raising awareness and helping Bravehearts to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child. Supporters wear white on the day to acknowledge victims of child sexual assault and to generate awareness.

Register your school today! Host a White Balloon Day event, a Wear White Day, a white Cupcake Day, anything that will help promote Bravehearts message in the community, and especially for our children.

Let's make Tasmania the safest state to raise a child by getting on board our biggest White Balloon Day yet. Register online today. This allows us to promote the event on our website. The website is also a great resource for ideas, news, updates and competitions.
