Our staff volunteers in Australia raised over AUD 4,000 through participation in various activities to support TLC for Kids – an Australian charity. The organisation provides suffering children with personalized, practical and emotional support through two programs: The TLC Distraction Boxes, and the RAPID TLC Program. The TLC Distraction Boxes are used in hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout Australia, to help children through frightening and painful medical examinations and procedures. The RAPID TLC service provides immediate distraction to kids, responding to their requests immediately, and fulfilling them within just 48 hours.
Tracky Dack Day also sees members of staff donning their tracksuits to work, to make donations in support of kids in hospitals. This encourages kids to change out of their pyjamas to keep a healthy mindset, as tracksuits represent wellness, and normalcy.
Other initiatives by our team in Australia include a sponsored table at TLC for Kids’ annual fundraising dinner, a breakfast cook-off in Melbourne, and donations raised through a treadmill run, which saw staff clocking over 70 kilometres’ worth of contributions in just a day. Guests also contributed generously, by dropping their contributions across all the properties.
