PERTH, Australia - June 16, 2017 - PRLog -- Earlier this week, students along with a group of local businesses came together to hold a fundraiser to benefit the children affected by the Syrian civil war.

Students were seen merrily preparing food items for sale while local businesses sold their wares – with all proceeds being generously donated to the cause.

While the final count is still underway, it's evident from the turnout that they more than met their fundraising goal.

"I'm tremendously proud of everything we accomplished here today. This is what it's all about. Communities coming together to support one another during times of need." – Paul Tan, CEO of Kingston International College

Kingston has a long history of student led fundraisers. Generally, students organise two major fundraisers annually. Previous beneficiaries include: Cancer Council Australia, Guide Dogs WA and Ruah Community Services.

"Today brought back a lot of good memories from my time here as a student. The students did an amazing job and it is really nice to see that even with the economy as it is, people are still willing to lend a helping hand. That's the great thing about Perth." – Arthur Marek, a former student who attended the fundraiser
