Whitelion invites this year’s brave Aussies to make a real difference in the life of a young person by getting involved in ‘Bail Out’ 2015 – a truly unique, emotional and inspiring experience - set to be even bigger, better and badder than ever!

To get involved, participants (known as 'inmates') can register online at www.whitelionbailout.org.au and start raising bail to secure their 'release'.


The minimum bail target that inmates need raise to participate in the 10th annual official ‘Bail Out’ event in Tasmania, is set at $1,000 - so let’s get started!

On the night of the event, Friday 29th May, Inmates are stripped of possessions, fingerprinted, photographed and subjected to interrogation - the whole nine yards! Inmates also appear before a Magistrate in a mock court proceeding before they’re sentenced to some ‘cell time’ where there is an opportunity to get on the phone to request some final donations and to even bribe wardens with on-the-spot donations for ‘contraband’ to help the night pass more smoothly - but choose wisely! It’s a night of real highs and lows with some very comedic and theatrical moments provided by actors (playing the roles of guards). ‘Inmates’ also meet young people who have been through the system and learn about the heart wrenching situations that lead them there.

Each year in Australia alone, there are more than 46,000 child protection cases, almost 36,000 young people in out-of-home care and 14,500 young people in the court system.

Whitelion’s mentors come from all walks of life in the community including business people who see a very real need to help.
