The 135km Cape to Cape Track in WA in March will be a challenging five days both physically and mentally, all in the name of raising much needed funds and awareness for a cause close to my heart – the LifeChanger Foundation.

Your support would help bring the LifeChanger Foundation one step closer to achieving its 2018 goals as it embarks on a much bigger challenge!

Your support directly contributes to:

Our Community Workshop rollout;
Our Digital Platform build - a platform connecting kids with mentors; and
Our development of Mentors and Coaches from within the communities we activate.


My passion for LifeChanger comes from a mothers perspective and realising that not all Australian kids have the same opportunities as others

• Youth suicide is the number 1 killer of young Australians

• 1 in 6 kids has been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder (7 - 15 yrs)

• 1 teenager in every classroom has a gambling addiction

• 1 in 4 leave the education system prematurely

• 50% increase in hospital admissions with children self-harming between 2010 and 2015

• 1 in 5 kids have deliberately sniffed inhalants (12 - 17 yrs)

• 38% of adolescents consume alcohol weekly (14+ yrs)

• 50% of teenagers experience cyber bullying

• 1 in 4 kids are overweight or obese (5 - 17 yrs)


Not one of these statistics is improving. Not one.

This was a key reason why I decided to step into this space 13 months ago.

The LifeChanger Foundation is on an epic mission to turn these stats around and create a generational shift in society.

LifeChanger believes that by providing young Australians with the tools to develop a positive self-identity they will be empowered to live their best life. Our programs develop an adolescent's self-identity by nurturing the individual across five key pillars:

Wellbeing | Life-Skills | Self-Awareness | Purpose & Meaning | Connections

Our approach gives young Australian's unprecedented access to programs within their community and access to a first-of-its-kind digital platform connecting kids with mentors. Moreover, the digital platform and community engagement will mean ongoing, sustainable, responsive support.


I am investing significant time, energy and money into this cause because I believe kids are now facing a shifting and challenging world with many of them feeling like they will never be good enough. I would like them all to feel like they already have everything they need and that their hero is within them!!


Thanks for your consideration, any support for the Foundation would be greatly appreciated!


Kind Regards

Karla Gilbert
