Maria Rallis

Hi! I’m Maria and I joined the KidsXpress village in 2018. With over 20 years’ experience in the not-for-profit world, working for an organisation that affecats real change is of utmost importance to me. KidsXpress is one such amazing organisation.

As Communications Manager, my role here is to tell our story and share our vision of creating a future all children deserve. Essentially, I get paid to spend my time on social media. It doesn’t get much better!

I’m also responsible for convincing foundations and philanthropists to part with their well-earned money through grant applications – it’s incredibly touching when they recognise our impact and join us as partners in creating a better future for vulnerable children in Australia.

When I’m not at KidsXpress, I love spending time with my husband and two children – both of whom are already avid social media and gaming fans. They’ve even convinced me to create my own Fortnite account and then tweet about how badly I play the online game!
