The Wiggles are sharing inspiring stories to boost children’s confidence, in a set of 12 Brave Little Books for UNICEF Australia.
Brave Little Books
The Wiggly adventures are a 12-month subscription, for children aged two to five years old, empowering children to find their voices and courage when faced with a challenge.
New Wiggly adventures each month
Arriving in their mailbox each month, children will be delighted by lots of Wiggly fun, including a book about how The Wiggles found their bravery, along with activities to help foster courage and exclusive character stickers, to be collected each month and displayed on a Wiggles poster.
Empowering children to find their courage
For three decades, The Wiggles, the world's most popular children’s entertainment group, have educated, entertained and enriched the lives of millions of pre-schoolers (and their parents) all over the globe.
Yellow Wiggle Tsehay Hawkins said, “We take joy in inspiring children to discover the courage to express themselves and build confidence while acquiring essential skills like colours, numbers, and even handwashing. Positive behaviours are also a big part of our shows and we’re pleased to empower children to find their courage in tricky situations.
A useful skill for life
“Sometimes children have something to say but may feel shy or embarrassed. Having bravery to speak up or ask for help is a useful skill and, if children learn it at a young age, it will be with them for life,” she said.
Each month a different much loved Wiggles member will share their brave tale, including Anthony, Tsehay, Lachy, Simon, Evie, Lucia, John, Caterina, Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus.
What does being brave mean to you
“To me being brave means being a good friend to someone who might be sitting alone,” Blue Wiggle Lucia Field said.
So many different ways to show courage
“We can show courage by not giving up when you are learning something new, even if you make mistakes or when things go wrong,” Red Wiggle Simon Pryce said.
The Wiggles have been Ambassadors of UNICEF Australia since 2008, helping drive awareness of issues that impact children the most, such as health, sanitation, hygiene and education.
Supporting children who need it most
“UNICEF Australia places children at the heart of everything it does and their work such as making sure children have access to health, hygiene and education is truly important to us. We’re proud to start our first fundraising subscription offer to support children around the world who need it most,” Purple Wiggle Lachy Gillespie said.
100% of the subscription goes to children in need
One hundred per cent of the monthly subscription will go to UNICEF Australia to support children in countries in crisis, with lifesaving supplies and services in the areas of health, education and child protection.
UNICEF supports children in more than 190 countries and is backed by 75 years of experience and supply hubs around the world.
