It’s half way through the month and I’ve really enjoyed the Instagram challenge that the PR team developed as part of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead’s Bandaged Bear Appeal. The hashtag is #bbaphotoaday
The Bandaged Bear Day Appeal is the major merchandise appeal for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Merchandise is on sale at a variety of outlets throughout NSW and the ACT for the month of March.
Help celebrate Bandaged Bear’s 21st Birthday on Friday 26 March! Buy merchandise, donate money or hold your own “When I grow up I want to be…” party during March and raise vital funds for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
Friday 26 March, Bandaged Bear Day, is the highlight of the Appeal, with hundreds of volunteers on the streets selling the bright and colourful merchandise. The Hospital relies heavily on the support of the community to make this day an overwhelming success.
Bandaged Bear Day Appeal funds will 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, where fun and laughter line the road to recovery.
