Petition to Malcolm Turnbull, Department of Education and Training
Save Healthy Harold - Happy Healthy Harold Day is now going to be Sad Day
Healthy Harold has become an Australian icon, with the Life Education Australia giraffe mascot teaching hundreds of thousands of Aussie school kids over the years about making good, healthy choices. The program has had all its federal funding cut, with its current grant expiring on July 1st, and that's just not okay. If our kids aren't going to get their first glimpses at healthy living and drug education from a giraffe in a bus, then how and by who? I doubt Mr Turnbull's keen on a career change... then again, maybe I'm mistaken. Many kids don't receive a proper drug and alcohol education until it's too late, and, with a rise in the usage of ice, can we afford to make a helpful giraffe become redundant? Please consider signing this petition, and help save the future of Australian health education - the life of a giraffe costume rests in your hands, Australia. Let's send a clear message to Canberra: DO NOT MESS WITH HEALTHY HAROLD.
