Would you support a community clean up program that supports your junior sports team all year round?

Hi everyone, I'm a SAHD and SAHG, I'm working on a program with Channel 9, Waratahs, Football Australia and schools and universities. We've been asked to turn around the negative impact of COVID on kids sport and their clubs and we have several ideas. These programs are designed to stimulate positive community activity, help kids get more from their sporting experience and learn from positive role models. This will also take a load off parents.
By partnering with local clubs, we will help with local jobs that are a community priority. Things like clean ups, tree planting, pruning, cleaning ovals, parks and shared areas. These will be undertaken with paid local tradies, club seniors and willing parents. We will bring along famous Australian sports stars several times a year to run the BBQ and tell stories.
Would you be interested in paying $1 per day to have your kids participate? It will cost $2 to lodge a request for job. All proceeds, after paying the tradie, are invested in your club. If there is enough interest in your community, we will hire older kids in paid roles to oversee future projects.
We have several interested sponsors and they are interested in feedback from SAHM. One of them sells a lot of wine.
Have an answer?
Ps. I'd pay a dollar a day for my kids to be involved in this kind of holistic learning!!
