Do the Whistle, Get The Record, Help The Salvos

By simply participating in the Cairns World Record Attempt you will be doing your bit to help raise much needed money for those most in need in our local community through The Salvation Army.

Over 44,000 Aussies under 25 are homeless tonight, often because their family home isn’t safe.

You can help the Salvos help them. Host a sleepover and raise money for safe refuges where young Aussies can sleep or take part in the Cairns Guinness World Record Attempt thanks to Totally Workwear.

Together we can give young people who are homeless food, blankets, counselling and support to get them out of danger and back on their feet.
