A wonderful way to help!

One of our supporters, Helen was having a 75th birthday party at a restaurant and instead of presents she asked her guests to donation to Children’s Hospital Foundation!

Helen was very touched by one of our Ambassadors Bridget’s story in our Christmas Appeal last year and as part of her invitation to her guests she used the ‘Thank you card’ from Bridget that we sent to her for her after her donation.

We also had the opportunity to do a quick video recording with Bridget while she was at the Queensland Children’s Hospital doing other promos. Bridget videotaped Helen a Happy 75th Birthday message!

Our Supporter services team spoke to Helen and sent her the video, it was a beautiful moment we had to share.

During her birthday party Helen shared Bridget’s video with her guests who were also very touched. Helen and her husband even had a little table at the restaurant with pictures of Bridget and the bravery beads.

The total raised from Helen’s Birthday party was $1200 (23 guests attended)

We will be posting a Facebook story on Helen soon so please make sure you Like our Children’s Hospital Foundation page!
