Charity starts at Home ... and Away

with Richard Clune From: The Sunday Telegraph

FOR most young, romantically linked stars, south-east Asian sojourns generally involve cheap fun and frivolity. Not so with Home and Away couple Rebecca Breeds and Luke Mitchell, who have returned from a recent trip to Cambodia inspired to help a community orphanage.


Between turns in front of the camera, they've been vigorously and passionately organising a slick fund-raising dinner aimed at amassing $200,000 for the Sovanapoom Orphanage.

"Your heart goes out to them," Breeds told Insider last week. "The place needs to be rebuilt and it needs help to be rebuilt."

"The sex trade is something that has flared up as a result of the country being so vulnerable and people are taking advantage of that. "At the orphanage there are girls as young as four who were almost sold into that industry."

Said Mitchell: "Seeing what it's like for these kids is a humbling experience ... in our industry, we're lucky to be in the position we're in, so if we can do something, we should.

"We'd never done anything like this, but we thought: 'Let's just do it, let's at least try.' "The result of their commitment is a ticketed December dinner and auction, open to the public. Christmas For The Kids will take place at a Sydney hotel on December 10.
