Hey kids – it’s that time of the year again!
The Bandaged Bear Appeal – is the signature public fundraising appeal for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
The highlight of the annual month long appeal is Bandaged Bear Day™ – Friday 25 March. On Bandaged Bear Day™, hundreds of volunteers assemble at train stations, shopping centres and major business areas, such as Martin Place, Sydney, to sell merchandise.
This is where you come in friends… if you are free before work on the morning of Friday 25 March, please volunteer to help me at Central station, where I will be Bandaged Bear Day co-ordinator! Alternatively, come visit me in Martin Place at lunchtime to buy a bear and show you care.
Help celebrate the 22nd anniversary of The Bandaged Bear Appeal™!
Buy merchandise, donate money or hold your own Bandaged Bear Breakfast during March and raise vital funds for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The Hospital relies heavily on the support of the community to make this day an overwhelming success.
Funds raised by The Bandaged Bear Appeal help care for sick kids needing a range of medical treatments. Donations will be allocated to areas of the greatest need within the Hospital, including research into childhood diseases, the purchase of vital equipment and the provision of patient services. Community support contributes significantly to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead being a world-class centre of healing for sick children and their families.
