I will hand-write my note and mail it

It’s easy!

Simply write your note and mail it to:

RMCC Notes of Encouragement
RMCC Australia
21A Sun Crescent
VIC 3020

RMCC will put your note into the backpack filled with learning materials that we give to kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds as they start school. 

It will be a lovely surprise when they discover your note and read your kind words of encouragement.


  • Keep your note simple and within one page. Often simple messages mean the most.
  • Remember that refugees come from a variety of backgrounds and aren’t refugees forever. Don’t assume anything about their faith or culture. Keep it light and focus on encouragement and support.
  • Avoid writing ‘welcome to Australia’ because some kids might have been in Australia for a while already.
  • Presume they speak English; most of the kids RMCC supports are bilingual or trilingual!
  • Create as many notes as you like, and encourage others to get involved. We have hundreds of kids we want to reach.
  • Have fun! Feel free to decorate your note or add pictures to it. The brighter, the better!

You can help even more! 

Kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds often face financial constraints. Starting school in a new country without the necessary school materials keeps them from actively engaging in their study, and adds extra pressure on an already nerve-wracking day.

To ensure RMCC kids aren’t at a material disadvantage to their classmates, we give them a backpack containing all the materials they need for the year. By helping us stock these backpacks, you’re equipping these children with the tools and resources they need to engage in their education. These materials, together with your notes, will make a child feel like they truly belong, and give them hope about their future.

Yes, I’d like to receive the quarterly newsletter to hear how my support helped RMCC kids.
