Be someone who helps a sick kid this Gold Appeal

8 May 2019

Gold Appeal is officially here! We’re aiming to raise $6 Million dollars in six weeks to help over 70,000 sick and injured kids who need Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick every year, but we need your support!

To celebrate the special 10-year anniversary of our Gold Appeal, we're asking you to be someone who helps. We believe every child deserves the best medical care, and a comfortable and calm environment to receive it in. With your support, we can give life-saving Golden Gifts to sick Aussie kids in Hospital.

No amount is too small to share, just $5 can buy a bottle of bubbles to distract and entertain a child in the Emergency Depatment, $50 can help pay for petrol for a family who needs to drive a long way for their child’s medical treatment and $5,000 could help fund a specially designed cot for babies so they can be transferred safely during medical procedures.

There are so many ways YOU can help!                                                                                   

  • Donate to our Gold Appeal, by giving ‘Golden Gift’. Your donation will make a huge difference, with the Golden Gifts going towards not only providing the latest medical equipment and treatment, but the funds can help with a bit of brightness on a difficult day, with art or musical therapies, playrooms and toys.
  • Fundraise together! From May to June you can host your own event to fundraise for the Gold Appeal. Try a trivia night or BBQ or set up a collection at your next game. Choosing to celebrate your special birthday, wedding or anniversary by asking for donations instead of gifts is also a wonderful way to share your support for the appeal. Check out some of the ideas and be as creative as you can!
  • Take your fundraising to work! Get your colleagues involved and organise a gold themed morning tea, dress in gold for a day at work, or set a goal to reach as a company and get behind the appeal while you work.

With YOUR support we’ll raise funds for the latest life-saving equipment, medical research and vital services that help young patients survive and thrive. Choose to give a golden gift today, by going to www.goldappeal.org.au or calling 1800 244 537.
