Oceans of Joy for Jai on his SeaWorld holiday!

Thursday, 28th July 2016

Jai is only 5 but he has already had major surgery on his bowels, and still faces issues with them, he also has Autism. Jai is the middle child in a family of 5, with his oldest brother Bradley, another Childs Vision child having a heart condition requiring frequent visits to hospital.

This family truly deserves the time to relax and embrace the magnificence of life and each other; so Childs Vision put them all up at SeaWorld Resort to submerge in beautiful holiday atmosphere. With 5 days of unlimited access to rides, live shows, sea creatures, family fun and paradise vibes Jai was buzzing when we met up with him and the gang on Wednesday 27th to spend the day together. This brave little boy had no problems jumping aboard his surprise helicopter ride and marveling at the spectacular view of the East Coast.

It was a day that melted the hearts of the Childs Vision Team as Jai and his family met, pat and kissed Merky the dolphin. And after lunch was a real delight for Jai; the Childs Vision Boat Cruiser taking us out to the vastness of the ocean where a mother wale and her cub played around us!

It truly was a day to light up life, warm the heart and lift the spirit, and for Jai and his family this is exactly what Childs Vision lives to do. All this wouldn’t be possible without our amazing sponsors.

Thank you SeaWorld Resort, Grill’d in Harbour Town, Southport Yaught Club, and Marina Mirage Moorings.

Bradley living his dreams on his SeaWorld holiday!

Thursday, 28th July 2016

Bradley has a heart condition that requires frequent visits to the hospital. Bradley’s 5 year old brother Jai also has health problems. Bradley is an animal lover and has a big heart, a great big brother for the 4 other siblings, this family has allot on their plate. Childs Vision was delighted to give this beautiful and well deserving family an opportunity of a life time; to experience a paid for holiday at SeaWorld Resort for a week.

We met up with Brad and his family to spend the day with them and lay out the surprises we had in store! The Childs Vision Team was just as excited as Bradley as he jumped aboard the SeaWorld helicopter for the realization of a childhood dream! He then couldn’t take the smile off of his face, getting up close and personal with Merky the dolphin; this animal lover was enthralled by this beautiful sea creature. Another magic memory was created when on the Childs Vision Boat Cruiser where Bradley looked out in awe at a mother wale and her calf playing around us as we cruised the ocean.

To top off the day Childs Vision gave Bradley a brand new bike! Plus a huge superfood pack, family dinner vouchers to Grill’d and Southport Yaught Club; his old Childs Vision bike had truly outgrown him.

It’s thanks to Childs Vision sponsors that Bradley got to have this wonderful time with his family. The Childs Vision is in such happiness at having been able to make all this happiness celebrated for Bradley and his family.

Thank you so much for your amazing support

Special Delivery for Alice Springs Yipirinya School!

Wednesday, 13th July 2016

Childs Vision is so happy to have this project ball rolling!

This is the beginning of something special as Yipirinya School receives their delivery from Childs Vision. The school received paints, brushes and canvases.

The smaller canvas size was thoughtfully chosen by Childs vision to gift to Yipirinya School as its modest size is of great appeal and effect within the tourism market. Childs Vision aims to cancel out the sale of fake indigenous art; a really sad issue for Australian Culture. By producing authentic works on this smaller sized canvas the purchased artworks of the Yapirinya School students can then be carried in travellers' backpacks no worries. To then be shared all over the world as authentic gifts that support Yipirinya School Students and their indigenous Australian culture!

The beginning of something great with Uluru Cultural Centre

Wednesday, 13th July 2016

Blank canvases have now been delivered to Uluru Cultural Centre in Alice Springs, and how excited the Childs Team is to see what unfolds.

The beautiful Uluru Cultural Centre will teach local Aboriginal kids to paint on these canvases. The paintings will then be exhibited and sold at the Centre to tourists.

Childs Vision is happy to be supporting the production of local and authentic indigenous Australian art, helping to maintain that the oldest culture in the world is kept alive. Childs Vision Canvases are for smaller works of art, so they are convenient for travelers to take home. The money that is made from the paintings sold will all go towards a local community initiative of the kids choice.

How exciting!

Ramon’s holiday in Paradise Resort

Monday, 11th July 2016

Ramon suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and has been with Childs Vision from the very beginning through good and bad times. This year has been really hard for him as he tragically lost his older sister to Cystic Fibrosis. Childs Vision is always there for the whole family trying to support them and put a smile back on their faces by surprising them with adventures of a lifetime.

Childs Vision invited the whole family over to Gold Coast to have a fun filled worry-free holiday in Paradise Resort. It’s definitely the best place to forget about all the problems and enjoy life as there is so much to do for children and adults likewise. They stayed there for 5 nights and discovered everything the Resort had to offer from giant waterpark to the playgrounds. Ramon and his little sis enjoyed splashing in the water and took some time to relax in the spa.

During their stay Surfers Paradise Coles donated a food voucher for them to buy all the necessary food items. To top it all off Ramon and his family also enjoyed a dinner out donated by a family friendly Pizza Restaurant in Coolangatta.
It was a well needed holiday and they really had the time of their lives.

Thank you dear Donors

Tuesday, 28th June 2016

On Saturday, 25th July Childs Vision Captain Koala Rides Truck was at Brisbane Speedway USA Monster Trucks & FMX Unleashed. The rides truck was busy all night long with hundreds of thrill seekers waiting for their turn to have a ride in a real Monster Truck. The ticket money collected will go to help children with life threatening illnesses.

One of the families to receive that gift was Stewart family who really needed some quality time as a family. Little Payton felt better snuggled safely on the first row seat watching the show with his dad Peter while Elara and Javaan jumped up and down from excitement waiting for their Monster Truck ride. It was the first time for them to visit a Monster Truck event and they were really grateful for the chance to experience it together. We couldn’t be happier for them and are really glad that the family could attend the event!

Huge thanks to the organisers for helping us to raise funds at the event. Also, big thanks to all of the people supporting us and donating to help sick kids.

Childs Vision Boat Cruiser makeover

Friday, 24th June 2016

Childs Vision Boat Cruiser has been a valuable companion for the charity providing families with fun and excitement already for a couple of years. Lately we started noticing that all those countless trips, exposure to sunlight and water had left their mark and the boat was starting to look old and tired already. It was obvious that our old friend was in desperate need for some pampering. So we gathered our volunteers and supporters to give the boat a much needed makeover this week.

We are so happy for all the help that we received during the whole process:

• Gold Coast City Marina Coomera lifted the boat out from the water and did the blasting.
• Sea Spray who offers a complete boat maintenance package polished the boat making it look bright and shiny again.
• My Marine Service enhanced our future boating experience with the amazing work they did with the engine.
• Nauti Covers who are the specialists in all marine trimming and upholstery fixed all the covers, roof and seats.
• Glenn was one of the main volunteers who anti-fouled the boat along with other volunteers who helped out.

We would like to send out huge thanks to My Marine Service, Sea Spray, Nauti Covers, Gold Coast City Marina Coomera and wonderful Childs Vision volunteers who gave their helping hand making the boat look like brand new again.

ATTENTION! Doomben Monster Truck Event venue and date changed!

Friday, 17th June 2016

STOP PRESS - DOOMBEN MONSTER TRUCK EVENT VENUE and date changed to Saturday 25th June 2016.

Due to severe weather warnings predicted for this coming weekend management have exercised its right to postpone the event and change location to (Brisbane International Speedway) Archerfield Speedway 63 Colebard St West, Archerfield Queensland 4108

We hope you understand and Monster Truck Promotions Australia Pty Ltd apologise profusely for any inconvenience caused but the team are working extremely hard to provide a number of additional incentives and improvements to the program previously offered which will hopefully improve the experience and make up for any inconvenience.

Further details and updates will be provided in the upcoming days. Any questions should be emailed to questions@monstertruck.biz.

Please rest assured that this decision is not a decision that has been taken lightly. Although it was financially in our interests to proceed with the event, this is a family event and it would be unfair to children and all involved to hold the event and expose young children and families to potentially dangerous storms. There also were major concerns about the safety and suitability of the Doomben Venue as stadium staff refused to discuss potential things which needed to be put in place due to the wet weather.

Full program as previously advertised will now be increased for any inconvenience caused.

• Please Note all Gold Seating Sold Out
• Limited Silver Ticket only is available
• General Admission is Still Available.

WE will provide further updates when it is possible and we thank you again for your patience.

Aboriginal project underway in Alice Springs

Tuesday, 7th June 2016

Great to see Childs Vision branching out to support and keep alive the Aboriginal heritage for generations to come will not miss out on their amazing culture. Grant visited the heart of Australian Outback, Alice Springs. The idea was to explore the endless opportunities that this part of Australia has to offer and get to know the amazing people there. Also to collect valuable information to proceed with Childs Vision Aboriginal project.

During Grant's research in Alice Springs he managed to establish valuable partnerships regarding Childs Vision Aboriginal project and also visit Uluru where the true spirit of Aboriginal culture lies. Alice Springs Yipirinya School and Uluru Cultural Centre are on board and first steps to establish an art program have already been made.

Childs Vision will provide canvases framed ready to paint on and canvas for creating bookmarks. We will also provide them with paint for the artists to teach the local aboriginal kids.
The art pieces will be sold to the tourist market and the funds kept for the kids. The kids will be asked what they want it spent on to support their local community.
Whilst Grant was in Alice Springs, Childs Vision also paid for all the canvases and paint for three local ladies Peggy, Eva and Margaret as a gift from Childs Vision to sell their beautiful unique art in the Sunday markets at Alice Springs.

In Loving Memory of CARLY

Tuesday, 7th June 2016

Childs Vision met Carly earlier in 2016 and from the very first sight it was obvious that there was so much light and positivity in this girl. Her bright smile and joyful attitude won us over momentarily.

When Carly was in the hospital waiting for her second lung transplant Childs Vision decided to go there and please her with a surprise visit. We prepared a goodie bag filled with superfoods, motivational reading material, coloring books and a big fluffy Rainbow Easter Bunny for her to cuddle. Grant and Steph even took raw cacao powder and cups with them to enjoy a wholesome hot drink all together. This was honestly the best hospital visit that we’ve ever experienced filled with warmth and laughter. We created so much noise that at one point nurses had to come and see if everything is fine. Our joyous atmosphere left them laughing as well.

Carly was an exceptional girl with so many colorful dreams and great plans for the future. She was really excited doing a charity bike ride to raise money and awareness in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Her kindness and ability to always stay positive were truly remarkable. She couldn’t wait to get out of the hospital and start living life to the fullest. She even decorated her hospital room to look more comfortable and homelike.

Carly truly was a ray of sunshine who shared her positive thinking and laughter with everyone surrounding her. She will always have a special place in our hearts and will be deeply missed.

Warmest wishes and good thoughts to you our sweet little angel wherever you are looking over us all with your sincere smile and bright eyes.


Childs Vision would like to send our deepest condolences to Carly’s family, friends and relatives.

Always yours,
Childs Vision Team

Wonderful weekend for Jayden

Tuesday, 31st May 2016

On the 27th of May Childs Vision team spent a fun-filled day with Jayden and his family adventuring through Sea World and enjoying a poolside lunch.
Jayden suffers from Muscular Dystrophy which is a hereditary condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles. He is doing really great and the family tries not to focus on his condition but to enjoy life while spending a lot of time together.

The day at Sea World started with Fish Detectives Sea Lion Show as Jayden had never seen it before. The show was much fun for everybody and the day went even better from there on. Childs Vision volunteer Cassie took the boys for some whirling fun on the Spinning Teacup Ride and to pat the curious stingrays down in Ray Reef.

The Dolphin Show was definitely the highlight of the day especially because Jayden was lucky enough to meet one of the dolphins up close, feed her and give her a nice pat. This put a big smile on Jayden’s face and he would have spent hours feeding fish to the dolphin. The whole family was blown away by those spectacular animals.

Everybody was feeling hungry after visiting Sea World so they headed off for a lunch with Childs Vision Cruiser. The surprises didn’t end there as the family was given a much needed weekend getaway with free accommodation and food provided by Coles.
Unfortunately for us we received a really rude welcome in Couran Cove that questions our future cooperation with them. Their behavior with Childs Vision team and with the family was simply unbearable to say the least. We are really sorry for the family to have seen such unprofessional settlement.

Happily Jayden and his family still managed to spend a nice weekend there after all the problems.

We would like to thank all our beautiful sponsors – Sea World, Marina Mirage Mooring, Coles. Thank you so much for your continuous support!

Childs Vision Illness Support Program for Harrison

Friday, 29th April 2016

Harrison from Newcastle has been fighting with Haemophilia for a long time and has to spend every 2nd day in hospital. This week, he and his family enjoyed a much needed break with Childs Vision Illness Support Program. They arrived to Gold Coast airport on 26th April and were driven to lovely Paradise Resort for a 5 night stay by Childs Vision driver Glenn.

Their holiday started off with Childs Vision team Shane and Sonny meeting them at SeaWorld where Harrison was about to get the surprise of his life. They had a lot of fun watching the penguins and stingray feeding but the highlight of the visit was the Dolphin Show. Harrison received his surprise after the show when he met one of the dolphins, could pat her and feed her some fish. The funny thing was that the dolphin was also named Sonny just like Childs Vision member Sonny. That made the encounter even more special and caused a lot of joy for everyone. Before heading to Childs Vision Boat Cruiser they also visited Shark Bay because sharks are Harrison’s favorite.

The day was going perfect as they cruised towards Couran Cove Island Resort. Harrison received his lesson on how to drive a boat from the captain and couldn’t stop smiling from excitement. They had a delicious lunch on the island that they also shared with wallabies. To top it all off they got to drive with Childs Vision golf buggy and check out the soon to be opened Island Holiday House.

It was such a wonderful day for everybody filled with happiness and laughter. A day among many other beautiful days during Harrison’s holiday here on Gold Coast. Their next adventure was visiting Dreamworld and having a nice dinner at Marriott Resort.

Childs Vision sends biggest thanks to all of our wonderful donors and partners – SeaWorld, Marriott Resort, Paradise Resort, Couran Cove Island Resort, Marina Mirage Marina Office and Dreamworld.

Dolton living the dream in Dreamworld

Monday, 4th April 2016

During their week with Illness Support Porgram Dolton and his family visited Dreamworld among other wonderful places. Dreamworld really is a place that has everything. There are thrilling rides, great entertainment and to top it all off little tiger cubs running around and brightening the days of visitors.

Dolton and his brother Leon had the wonderful chance to get up close with the cubs and pat them. The boys couldn’t be happier as this was an experience that they will never forget.
The day went even better as they managed to pat a koala and had fun in the waterpark afterwards.

Thank you so much Dreamworld for donating the tickets for the family.

A week full of fun for Dolton

Thursday, 31st March 2016

For the last two years, six year-old Dolton from Ballarat has suffered from Hereditary Spherocytosis, a rare blood condition which has forced the boy to have many blood transfusions, as well as having his spleen removed. Since the illness was discovered, Dolton has been constantly in and out of hospitals.

The Ballarat family had a really special week with Childs Vision as they were flown to Gold Coast for our Illness Support Program. This was the first ever holiday for the family so they were really looking forward for the adventure. The family was picked up from the airport by one of our wonderful volunteers (Glen) and driven to Paradise Resort for a 5 night stay. Paradise Resort is a great place to relax with kids as they have put a lot of effort in making the place truly heavenly with exciting things to do. Dolton and his family had a blast in the giant waterpark and really enjoyed spending time near the pool area.

One of the most anticipated things for the whole trip was the day of the boat cruise. The day started out with our awesome volunteer (Ashton) meeting the family in SeaWorld. It was a perfectly sunny day to enjoy all the wonders that SeaWorld has to offer. We spent a lot of time watching all the mesmerizing creatures and touched the stingrays as they hovered around in their special pools. The Seal Show has always been a crowd-pleaser and it didn’t disappoint us this time either. There’s just something in their essence that puts children laughing and cheering for them. Little did Dolton know that the highlight of our SeaWorld adventure was still coming as we rushed to see the Show of the Dolphins. Dolton experienced his once in a lifetime dolphin pat after the show. It took a long time for the excitement to fade away from his beaming face. This smile was the thing that makes our work worthwhile.
After having tons of fun in SeaWorld it was time to head off for lunch in Couran Cove Island Resort with Child Vision Boat Cruiser. Dolton and his brother Leon couldn’t get enough of splashing in the pools and everyone had a laugh as the boys fed the wallabies. We enjoyed a nice walk through the rainforest and pressed our tired feet into the warm sand as we made a small break at the beach before heading back.
The day was simply a dream come true for Dolton and his family. It was filled with animals, laughter and relaxation. They also received a superfood pack from us for boosting their health.

The boat cruise wasn’t the only fun adventure that the family took in that week. They also went to Dreamworld and glided down the fabulous water slides in Wet’n’Wild. The family stayed in luxurious Marriott hotel for the last two nights of their holiday.

It was a perfect week for Dolton and his family to forget all the problems and spend quality time together. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing supporters. Big thanks to all the people who have donated to us, Paradise Resort, SeaWorld, Couran Cove Island Resort, Dreamworld, Wet’n’Wild and Marriott. Thank you so much for helping us to bring back a smile on the child’s face.

Ramon’s 14th birthday celebration

Saturday, 20th February 2016

Ramon has been with Childs Vision from the very beginning. Ramon suffers from Cystic Fibrosis which affects his ability to breathe; he is constantly in and out of hospital and has had many serious and almost tragic times throughout his life. Childs Vision is always there for the whole family trying to put a smile back on their faces.

On Saturday Ramon celebrated his 14th birthday. Childs Vision made a great surprise for Ramon and took him along with his family on a wonderful day full of joy and laughter. The day started out at Xtreme Karting in Pimpama where everyone enjoyed themselves appreciating a great track, a very well run organization and friendly staff. Ramon got a truly extreme experience when riding on the back seat of the two seater “Monster” kart steered by a professional driver. But the fun didn’t stop there and dirt started splashing when Ramon and his family got a chance to drive on an off-road track. It was hard not to notice those beaming smiles and thrilled faces when they stepped out from the karts.

The birthday party continued at Grill’d in Harbour Town which is one of the biggest Grill’d restaurants around. Ramon was really excited because he received the nicest welcome there. The staff was friendly and had prepared a table with balloons. In addition to the beautiful table the lovely manager and staff of Grill’d gifted Ramon a signed birthday card, an outstanding yellow soccer ball and a Nike bag. Ramon was over the moon because he really likes Nike. After all the excitement it was time to eat. Everyone had troubles choosing what to order since Grill’d has a really great menu with a lot of healthy options. Ramon ordered a burger that was delivered by our personal waiter. After enjoying the food and having nice conversations it was time for the final surprise – a banana flavored birthday cake made by Gold Coast Cake Supplies.
In the end of the day Ramon said that it was the best birthday he ever had.

Childs Vision would like to send huge thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors who made it all possible - Xtreme Karting, Grill’d in Harbour Town and Gold Coast Cake Supplies, Ashmore.

Happy birthday Ramon!

It all started with a boiling hot day on our wonderful Gold Coast, Childs Vision (Riina) met Sean and his family at SeaWorld, as upon entering the gates we all adventured through the magic of SeaWorld, the penguins were on the cards, as this started off the morning to be so magical for everyone, one of the penguins made everyone laugh as he was running up and down the habitat flapping his wings, no one has seen anything like it before, after this little bright light made everyone smile, we continued to adventure though the park to see the scary Creators of the Deep, it was not long after you could hear in the background the Seal Show, were we all raced to see, the day flowed nicely after the children enjoyed entertainment from the Seal’s. SeaWorld kept on surprising everyone with their shark and fish underground wonderland; however the magic of the Gold Coast SeaWorld didn’t stop there. Sean went for his a dolphin show and pat really lit up the family as they have never experienced anything like it before, Sean had a big water fight with the dolphin, the smile on his face as priceless, The whole family was blown away just how amazing these animals truly are.

Thanks to a once and a life time in adventure at SeaWorld, the family set a sail on the Child Vision Boat Cruiser and set off for Couran Cove where the family got to enjoy a beautiful lunch. There were some surprises, the wallabies enjoyed the pool and so did everyone else. After we enjoyed our meals we fed the swimming wallabies. This made everyone laugh when they attempted to steal someone’s bag for food, the day was full of animals. At the end there was ice-cream for everyone being such a hot day.

Sean and his family had a magical day, Sean has been in and out of hospitals and a wheel chair due to a foot disorder, thanks to our wonderful sponsors we could not do it without you,

In Loving Memory of KAYLA 1999-2016

Sunday, 24th January 2016

To our beautiful Kayla Childs Visions Bravest Child in the World will always remain in our Hearts.

Grant Hudson CEO of Childs Vision first met Kayla in 2012 at Mater Hospital located in Brisbane whilst doing his rounds of seeing what kids were missing to put a smile back on their face.

There was Kayla.

After Grant from Childs Visions spent some time with Kayla he found that she was promised a iPad from another charity but hadn’t received one. She desperately wanted to keep in contact with her family and friends while she was in hospital but could not. (Childs Vision surprised Kayla with her wish of a IPad the very next day and also included a superfood pack and a fluffy toy to cuddle).

Grant then asked Kayla certain questions of what she would like to do when the word dolphin swim came up. I will never forget the look on her face as tears ran down her face as she lit up like someone had finally turned a light on inside her soul. Her mother Carmen also noticed this happening and a stream of happy tears also started to flow from her eyes.

It was set, the dolphin swim was going to happen at SeaWorld on the Gold Coast. After Kayla had her swim with the dolphins she had the biggest smile on her face that no one could ever wipe off, Childs Vision released that the more we got her participating in life and everyday activity’s the more she forgot she was sick and the more amazing memories she had, her light shined brighter than ever, the more Kayla grew so did Childs Vision, till this brave girl made it to her lung transplant in 2014.
(Kayla is the reason Childs Vision now take all the sick kids for swims with the dolphins).

Kayla’s bright eyed attitude and lovely personally surprised all after spending time with Kayla. It was hard to believe this beautiful young girl was suffering with Cystic Fibrosis and was on a wait list of a lung transplant. Kayla had become one of child’s visions first long term children.

The fun didn’t stop there for Kayla with experiences such as whale watching, White Christmas, see the animals at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Rides in a Monster Truck at our Monster Truck Spectaculars and a trip to Couran Cove Island Resort for the whole family and so much more, Kayla become a part of our life and our first ever Bravest Child of the Year in 2014 and went on the front cover of our first edition of Childs Vision Child Care Magazine 2014

Without Kayla Childs Vision would not be the same charity as it is today as all her experiences and events we have taken her to have become a part for our illness support health program.

To our dearest Kayla you will always have a peace of our hearts you will be missed more than words can say.

Love Always your Childs Vision Family

Calvin's Dolphin Adventure

Friday, 15th January 2016

The Childs Vision Volunteers (Savannah) made Calvin’s day and his beautiful family with a once and a lifetime trip to Sea World and adventured on to the Childs Vision Boat Cruise as part of the Childs Vision Support Program.

The day start off at the at SeaWorld located in the Gold Coast, Calvin seamed not much himself until we started the day entering the doors at SeaWorld, as soon as Calvin saw the penguins his whole face lit up and Calvin became he’s bright and shining self, spending as much needed time mesmerized by these amazing creators, we then adventured on to see the new Creatures of the Deep exhibit which was a big hit for all.

As the Team adventured through SeaWorld a dolphin show was a highlight as Calvin experienced just how amazing these creatures really are, being able to see the way they live and play, straight after the show Calvin experienced a once in a life time dolphin pat, which he loved and brought some big smiles to his face, the watertight was defiantly a hit for both, due to one hot summers day ending in a splash fight between Calvin and the Dolphin.

After that it was off to lunch, on the Childs Vision Boat Cruise, as the Childs vision boat cruise turned into a cubby house, the boys really began to have fun.
As we made it to Coven Cove Island resort pizza was on the menu for Calvin along with a much need swim in the massive kids pool, the day was not complete without lots of ice cream as Calvin went for seconds.

Calvin and he family had an amazing day as they are normally are in and out of hospitals due to Leukaemia, but thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and our donors, they gave this brave boy and his family a chance to have fun and brought countless smiles to their faces.

Thank you donors and sponsors; Sea World, Marina Mirage Moorings, and Couran Cove Island Resort
Without you all none of this would be possible.

A great day out at the Beenleigh Monster Truck Spectacular!

Saturday, 2nd January 2016

It has been a busy Christmas and New Year period for the Childs Vision Team, culminating in our last big event for a little while at the Beenleigh Monster Truck Spectacular on the 2nd of January.

It certainly didn’t disappoint with Clive and his incredible team putting on a breathtaking show full of FMX stunts, quad races, kids motor cross races, demolition derby and of course some serious monster truck action!

The highlight of the day by far was seeing our Childs Vision Kids Sean and Jayden and their families, and watching their grins squeals of delight getting their own ride in the Bear Foot monster truck, thanks to Troy, and got to be part of the Monster Truck parade.

Sean suffers from a growth deformity in his legs and feet, and Jayden suffers from Muscular Dystrophy; a hereditary condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles. However neither of the boys has let that slow them down or dim their infectious enthusiasm and love for life.

And no Monster Truck show would be complete without the incredible fireworks display from KC fireworks. They really pulled out all the stops and gave the crowd their firework fix!

A huge thank you to all of our generous sponsors and donors, as without you none of this would be possible. Looking forward to the year ahead and thanks to all your support it will be the best year yet!

Sunshine Coast Monster Trucks truly Spectacular!

Monday, 28th December 2015

On Monday the 28th of December the Childs vision team was back on the road and off to the Sunshine Coast Monster Truck Spectacular. It was the first time in five years the Sunshine Coast Stadium has hosted the trucks, and it certainly delivered!

Featuring crowd favourites Outback Thunda, Tassie Devil, Lil Miss Thunda, Spirit of Australia, Spot and Scruffy. And the ever hilarious Syco Sam the upside-down rollover truck brought many laughs and squeals of delight from the kids.

The crowd was also wowed by the FMX displays and World Champion Clinton Moore, and the other stunt riders who really put on a show. Especially after one of their own was injured after his first jump, the boys went out and whipped up the crowd and delivered a truly awesome show with their jaw dropping stunts.

Then there was the incredible finale featuring Santa and the Christmas dancers, fire twirling and light show, Tranzilla the fire breathing dinosaur and of course an incredible fireworks display.
It was a night of fun for all who braved the winds and threatening weather, but held our and made the night a special and thoroughly enjoyable one.

A huge thank you to Bevan who won our Monster Truck Memorabilia Auction, all the crew at the Sunshine Coast Stadium and all our generous donors. We couldn’t do what we do without your support and generosity.

Boxing Day fun at the Archerfield Speedway

Saturday, 26th December 2015

On Boxing Day the Childs Vision Team headed off to the Archerfield Speedway for an afternoon of fun, dirt and noise, and boy did it deliver!

The arena was full of holiday makers after a fun family evening out to watch the racers battle it out on the track, and the monster trucks create carnage.

It was a wonderful evening full of smiles, flying dirt and great company for all, wrapped up with an incredible fireworks display.

A huge thank you to all the team at Archerfield Speedway for all your support and assistance on the night, and to all our generous donors. We couldn’t do all that we do without you!

Byron Bay Beach Hotel Christmas Party a Huge Success!

Sunday, 20th December 2015

On Sunday the 20th of December Childs Vision packed up and travelled down to the idyllic Byron Bay for a day of fun and merriment overlooking Main Beach at the iconic Beach Hotel.

We met up with our Childs Vision Byron team, and hit the ground running. There was face painting, Santa and his happy helper The Hand bringing smiles and candy canes to the kids (and a few kids at heart) and setting up for the incredible Lisa Hunt and her talented band.

The Beach Hotel set us up with a Karma Keg- a pop up bar with a keg, of which all the proceeds go directly to the charity, what an effective idea! By 5:30 the Keg was dry, so a BIG thank you to all who took one (or several) for the team and had yourself a merry afternoon. You really gave us a hand and all the money raised has already begun to make a massive difference.

The lovely Lisa Hunt delivered a knock out soulful performance and had everyone moving and shaking along.

And we surprised our star of the show Sean with a brand new bike presented by Lisa Hunt and our Byron Manager Ry, which put a beaming smile on his face and brought a tear to the eye.

It was an afternoon of merriment, smiles, laughter, great live music, dancing and good company. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!

A huge Thank You to all the management and staff at the Beach Hotel for all your generosity and support. You all helped make the day so special, and thank you for inviting us back for Christmas 2016, so we hope to see you all there again next year!

Once again a very Merry Christmas and happy, healthy New Year from all of us here at Childs Vision.

Childs Vision Gold Coast University Hospital Christmas Appeal 2015

Tuesday, 15th December 2015



Christmas time is the most exciting and magical time of the year for kids everywhere. But the harsh reality for families with children that have terminal and life threatening illnesses or injuries, is that the mounting financial pressures can dull the Christmas sparkle. Many families spend thousands on treatments and care and simply can’t afford the Christmas luxuries they would like to enjoy with their kids.

On Tuesday the 15th of December the Childs Vision Team donned their festive best and Santa sacks and went through the Children’s wards of the Gold Coast University Hospital, Tweed Hospital, and Lady Celinto Hospital Brisbane delivering gifts and some much needed cheer and smiles to those little ones who needed extra joy this Christmas Season.

Many of the children had been sad or crying on our arrival, but our jolly team of Elves and Santa Hand left all giggling and grinning when we left, parents and children alike.

This is the busiest, but most rewarding time of year for all of us here at Childs Vision; as it drives home the real value and effect of what we set out to do. The joy and excitement on the faces of these children made it all worthwhile and their happiness and bravery brings a tear to the eye.

We would like to say a big thank you to all those Sponsors and donors that have made this possible, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy, healthy New Year from all of us in the Childs Vision Team.

Warner Bros Movie World White Christmas

Friday, 11th December 2015

Friday the 11th of December was one of the most anticipated events of the year in the Childs Vision calendar- White Christmas at Warner Bros Movie World. This is a highlight for both our incredible children and families but also for the Childs Vision Team.

It is a magical evening, when we can all let our hair down and enjoy the spirit of the season all together, enjoying all that Movie World has to offer.

The atmosphere and excitement was electric and it was a non-stop blur of laughter and smiles all night, adults and children alike! We were exhilarated by the rides, in awe of the Christmas light displays, and joy and wonder of the parade under the Christmas tree.

And as always a special thank you to our wonderful donors and sponsors, especially the team at Warner Bros Movie World for making this incredible evening a possibility. We couldn’t do it without your continued support and generosity.

We would like to wish everyone a very safe and Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year from everyone here at Childs Vision, and looking forward to a bigger and better 2016!

A Dolphin of a time with Zach

Wednesday, 9th December 2015

On Wednesday the 9th of December we did our last Dolphin Boat Cruise Experience for the year with the brave Zach and his beautiful family, and what a day it was!
Zach is six years old and has been receiving treatment for brain tumors, but despite this horrific ordeal, both he and his family are the brightest and most heartwarming people you could ever hope to meet.

It was a day full of excitement and surprises, with Zach jumping for joy on being told he was going to be able to meet his favourite animal one on one!

Zach and his brother Jake’s excitement and big smiles were infectious, and lasted throughout the day, from the Creatures of the Deep exhibit, laughing at the Fish Detectives Seal Show, watching the sharks and penguins and of course the big finale at the Dolphin Show.

After that Zach and his family got up close and personal with the lovely Jinx, and by the end of the experience Zach wanted nothing more than to dive in with his new friend.

Then it was out of the heat and away from the crowds and off to lunch and a swim Couran Cove on the Child Vision Cruiser. Zach showed us what a real aptitude he has for becoming a sea captain with his smooth and steady sailing!

It was a beautiful afternoon spent relaxing poolside with the wallabies and enjoying the calm and tranquility of Stradbroke.

The Childs Vision Team would like to say a special thanks all our generous donors and sponsors for making this amazing day possible for this wonderful boy and his family to have such fun quality time together, and for all their continued support over the course of the year. We couldn’t do what we do without you!

Dreams came alive at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Dream Night

Saturday, 28th November 2015

On Saturday evening on the 28th of November the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary opened its doors to local children and families suffering from chronic illness for its annual Dream Night at the Zoo event. This was the first year that the Childs Vision team has been lucky enough to attend this event with several of our families in our illness support program and has already become a highlight of the year.

It was all go, go, go from the moment of arrival with musicians, Christmas carols, animal meet and greets, professional photo opportunities, cultural dances, animal talks, rides on the mini train, BBQ dinner and even a visit from Santa! The friendly Sanctuary staff well and truly got into the spirit, dressing up for the occasion and making use of the face painting stalls with the kids.

Some of the highlights for the Childs Vision team were catching the train through the park with some of our families, bonding with the Kangaroos and the nighttime feeding demonstration with Boss Hog the saltwater crocodile. But by far the best part of the evening was seeing the joy and excitement in the faces and smiles of our families.

It was a truly a magical night that none of us wanted to end, adults and kids alike!

A big thank you to the friendly Staff and organisers at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful night, and giving our families the opportunity to experience the magic of Dream Night at the Zoo.

Fun filled day out with Sartaj

Thursday, 26th November 2015

The Childs Vision crew had a blast with Sartaj and his family on our excursion to Sea World and Childs Vision Boat Cruise as part of the Childs Vision Support Program.

We started the day off at Sea World exploring the new Creatures of the Deep exhibit which was a big hit and really set the tone for the rest of the day.

After that it was more fun and games, having a laugh at the Fish Detectives seal show, escaping the heat of the day watching the sharks from the cool of the underwater viewing platform and of course being transfixed by the dolphin show.

Sartaj was lucky enough to get a special one on one dolphin pat experience with one of the amazing dolphins, the baby of the group, Stella. The bond was there straight away, as Stella’s playful antics started a friendly water fight, giving everyone a chance to cool off! And no trip to Sea World would be complete without a ride on the Viking Flume, which left everyone soaking wet and grinning from ear to ear!

After that it was off to lunch, but not before Captain Sartaj gave us a heart racing boat ride! Then it was all relaxation and cooling off in the serenity of the pools at Couran Cove Island Resort on South Stradbroke Island.

Sartaj has Leukaemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow, but thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and our donors, they gave this brave boy and his family a chance to have fun and brought countless smiles to their faces.

Thank you donors and sponsors; Sea World, Marina Mirage, Moorings, and Couran Cove Island Resort
Without you none of this would be possible.

We all jumped aboard the Childs Vision Boat and started cruising down the Broadwater towards SeaWorld where Tori was about to get the surprise of her life. To Tori’s surprise she was about to have a splash with some dolphins and also have a pat. After this we hoped back on the Cruiser and went down to Couran Cove Island Resort where a beautiful lunch was waiting for them. To top it off Tori and her family travelled in style at Couran Cove as they had their golf buggy escort.

Saturday, 19th September 2015

On Saturday the 19th of September Tori and her family were privileged enough to be taken on our Childs Vision Boat Cruise as a part of our Illness support program. Tori suffers from a severe blood disorder - Siderbastic Anaemia which puts constant pressure or her and also her family. Her iron levels are too high and she visits the hospital once a month to receive 2 bags of blood. So, in order to bring a little bit of joy into this families life we wanted to take them for an amazing day out. We started the day by presenting Tori with one of our superfood packs to help keep her body strong and healthy and then we were off on our adventure. We all jumped aboard the Childs Vision Boat and started cruising down the Broadwater towards SeaWorld where Tori was about to get the surprise of her life. To Tori’s surprise she was about to have a splash with some dolphins and also have a pat. After this we hoped back on the Cruiser and went down to Couran Cove Island Resort where a beautiful lunch was waiting for them. To top it off Tori and her family travelled in style at Couran Cove as they had their golf buggy escort.
It was such a wonderful stress free day for Tori and her family to enjoy. It was so wonderful to see everyone smiling and enjoying themselves on this amazing program for sick children. Thanks to all of our sponsors and to everyone who donates to help us do this amazing work, without you it wouldn’t be possible.

MONSTERS STRIKE GOLD

Monday, 7th September 2015

The came. They saw. They conquered.
That was the story at the Gold Coast Convention Centre last night Saturday September 5 when the Childs Vision FMX Monster Truck Spectacular exploded into the tight little arena.
Outback Thunda, Spot, Tassie devil and the indoor debut of Lil Miss Thunda and son of Thunda all created carnage on the concrete surface in front of a great crowd.
After all the formalities of the opening parade it was time for the Monster Trucks to do what the crowd wanted to see and a sky wheelie competition was the opener along with the legend Outback Thunda being the first truck out. Thunda had the joy of the new cars and in the end despite a close contest from all the trucks Thunda was the overall crowd favourite and victor.
It was then time for Showtime FMX and what a show Gary Reid’s boys put on right from the onset the crowd were on their feet in a frenzy yelling for more.
Then the pace just continued to heat up! Troy Garcia driving Spot continued his winning ways taking the victory over Danny Patard in Tassie Devil who in turn managed narrow wins against Thunda.
Intermission came following a great display from the Toowoomba based Globe of Death team then straight after interval just as you thought the action couldn’t get any more extreme the ShowTime FMX All-Stars let loose with backflip after backflip.
It was now time for the business end of the night for the Monster Truck Spectacular.
Troy Garcia and Spot put in a solid performance then Danny Petard in Tassie Devil thrilled the crowd with a blockbuster freestyle but then the best was about to come. Out came Dave George in lil Miss Thunda hitting the cars with good rhythm then just as he came to an end out came Pat Featherby in Son of Thunda followed closely by the big Beast Outback Thunda and driver Clive Featherby.
Clive makes no secret that he loves driving indoors he came out full throttle and literally went wild then suddenly shot under the grand stand canopy to literally vanish in the pit area the crowd were standing cheering then suddenly a burst of Pyro flames and from the two sides of the enclosure burst both the Thundas together performing a medley of side by side jumps ending up on the two car piles together as then the entire cast of bikes and performers appeared back on the centre arena to thank the appreciative crowd.
All in all a great family night out all in the aid of a very great cause.
Let’s not forget what this night is all about raising awareness for the kid’s charity Childs Vision.
A massive thanks to Childs Vision CEO Grant Hudson who worked tirelessly to bring this wonderful event back to a brilliant facility. Also a huge thank to our signers on the night; Alexa Curtis, winner of the Voice Kids and Jenna Dearness-Dark for their amazing singing performances! What a pleasure to watch such talent.
Thanks to all for attending and to everyone who worked to make the show a success. We couldn't have done it with the help of every single person at the event! We really appreciate all the support! So a HUGE THANKS to everyone!

Kayla's Story

Saturday, 18th July 2015

Kayla has been with us from the beginning; she suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and has not been very well lately. With the help of all the Childs Vision team and also Kmart & JB HI FI we have been able to get Kayla and her a family new TV for their home. This is just some of the awesome work that we do to help these children in any way we can. We also took Kayla to Kmart so that she could get some new clothing. She loved being able to go out to the shops and get to pick her own clothing. We try to do anything we can to help these children live as normal lives as possible.
Thank you to all the Childs Vision Team, Kmart and JB HI FI

Ramon & Kayla Childs Vision Illness Support Program

Saturday, 18th July 2015

Kayla and Ramon both suffer from Cystic Fibrosis, due to unforeseen circumstances recently we had a bit of a scare with Kayla and Ramon both. When the children had this scare we wanted to act quickly and give the family and children all the support we could! So in saying that we took the children and family on a weekend away at Couran Cove Island Resort as a part of our Illness Support Program. We wanted to bring some joy back into their lives by giving them this much needed vacation.
To start the day Kayla, Ramon and their family took a tranquil cruise on our Childs Vision Cruiser starting at Marina Mirage heading down to Couran Cove Island Resort. Once we arrived at Couran Cove we had a beautiful lunch with the children and family.
As well as going on this Childs Vison Boat Tour, Kayla and Ramon’s family enjoyed a weekend away at the Couran Cove Island Resort with breakfast every morning! This is just the kind of break the family needed with all the tough times they have gone through. They had a beautiful weekend holiday and it’s always a pleasure to see the smiling, happy faces of the children when they get to enjoy this much needed break out of hospital.

Ramon's Big Move

Wednesday, 8th July 2015

Ramon has been with Childs Vision from the very beginning. Ramon suffers from Cystic Fibrosis which affects his ability to breathe; he is constantly in and out of hospital and has had many serious and almost tragic times throughout his life. Ramon and his family have been struggling with living so far away from the hospital. The stress this put on the family was awful and we wanted to do whatever we could to help Ramon and his family.
Childs Vision helped Ramon and his family by donating new utilities for their home and also with moving closer to the hospital. Ramon’s illness is ongoing however we were able to do these small deeds which help him and his family out to make their time as stress and worry free as possible.
Just seeing the smile on Ramon’s face is thanks enough! A fridge, washing machine and microwave were donated to help with their move and give them the basic everyday items that all families need. Ramon now lives closer to the hospital which will make everyday life that little bit less stressful as he can continue to get the care he needs and isn’t too far away. Childs Vision always wants to do whatever they can to help in situations like Ramon’s. We just want to see these children healthy and happy and enjoying life to the best of their abilities.

Connor gets his new bike after a ride of a lifetime

Saturday, 21st June 2014

Young 7 year old Connor had a surprise bike waiting for him after his dream had come true to ride in a monster truck in front of 10,000 people at the Rocky Stadium organised by Childs Vision. Dane from Childs Vision gifted Connor with his new bike and said the look on his face was priceless. Connor has Hemophilia the worst kind and spends most of his time in and out of hospital but this night was for him a star in all the kids eyes as he left the stadium.

About Hemophilia

Hemophilia is a rare bleeding disorder that prevents the blood from clotting properly, so a person who has it bleeds more than someone without hemophilia does. It's a genetic disorder, which means it's the result of a change in genes that was either inherited (passed on from parent to child) or occurred during development in the womb.


When most people get a cut, the body naturally protects itself. Sticky blood cells called platelets go to where the bleeding is and plug up the hole. This is the first step in the clotting process. When the platelets plug the hole, they release chemicals that attract more sticky platelets and also activate various proteins in the blood known as clotting factors. These proteins mix with the platelets to form fibers, and these fibers make the clot stronger and stop the bleeding.

Bradley has the Ride of a lifetime

Tuesday, 17th June 2014

Young 12 year old Bradley has a heart condition and has not had any good news for a long time until Childs Vision found him and took him on a ride that most kids dream about. He has just had a run in the Australian champion Monster Truck AUSSIE THUNDA. When he exited the truck he found a brand new BMX waiting for him and then a monster truck full gift pack with all the goodies in it.

Holly’s on the way up after Childs Vision Illness Support Program

Thursday, 24th January 2013

Holly has made amazing progress with the Childs Vision illness support program. Holly has gone from being in a wheel chair not being able to walk to miraculously walking within 2 days after spending serious time with Childs Vision specialists. She has been taking a special mix of super foods, participating in specialised rehabilitation techniques, and undergoing deep Breathwork regression sessions. Holly was previously in a wheel chair because of conversion disorder and the tablets that she was giving which had an adverse effect on her whole body that left her shaking uncontrollably when she would try and walk. She has now stabilised her walking.

Riley with his awesome New Legacy Tribute Series Guitar with his Teacher jimmy (Left) and Nick (Right), owner of Stewart's Music. Music is something he is quite passionate about and loves playing, One of my favorite things in the world is seeing him play. When Riley was suffering from various symptoms prior to diagnosis. He was finding it hard to concentrate, even for a short amount of time. Shortly after he stopped practicing all together. I can't thank you all enough, for re-igniting Riley's passion for music , and all that Childs Vision have done for our Family.

Christmas in Hospital for some Kids 2011

Tuesday, 17th January 2012

Christmas is a time that can be a tough for children and their families to spend in hospital.

But with the help of Childs Vision volunteers and the hospital staff, the Children's Hospitals around Australia were able to bring plenty of Christmas cheer to the children who were patients at the end of 2011. Even Santa visited some of the hospitals to help put a smile on the childrens faces. On Christmas Day, Santa handed out presents delivered by Childs Vision volunteers to all the children in the hospital. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making Christmas at the Hospitals a special day for sick children.

A huge thank you to all those special people who donated to Childs Vision Christmas Appeal before Christmas.

Riley Update from Father Shane

Saturday, 14th January 2012

Riley is going well, we've been at the Royal Childrens Hospital now for nearly 4 weeks After being transferred from the Goldcoast Hospital.

We are due to start the next round of chemo on Monday. The only thing keeping us here is Riley's sodium levels. This is necessary to regulate the bodies blood volume, blood pressure, and fluid. This has come about due to an additional smaller germ cell tumor attached to his pituitary gland. The doctors are fine tuning his medication for this now. However this process will be thrown out of balance once the next round of chemo starts. I suspect that it will be easier to manage next time round and we will be able to go home sooner. Riley has begun to loose his hair, but he's not ready to shave it off just yet.

Thank you so much for your support.

Shane
Rileys Father
