Fundraising for the Australian Breastfeeding Association in Bendigo by eating???
Okay Bendigonians, I need your help.
The Australian Breastfeeding Association Bendigo Group have been chosen as one of the charities of the month for Local Matters by Grill'd in Bendigo. As a long term member of the group, I know how much amazing work are done by the volunteers and members, and have experienced personally the amazing support mums receive with both breastfeeding help, but also that peer-to-peer support around other parenting issues.
HOW IT WORKS (from Grill'd website)
It’s a pretty high-tech system involving bottle tops, jars & counting… The $500 will be split amongst 3 local groups. Each group will be represented on a different jar. Every time a customer buys a burger we’ll give them a token (ok, it’s a bottle top from our friends at Little Creatures). Our customers decide who they’d like us to support by choosing which jar to put their token in. At the end of the month, we’ll count up the tokens to figure out who gets what. We’ll split the money $300 / $100 / $100, so everyone gets something. Pretty simple really.
WHAT I'D LIKE YOU TO DO
Obviously, I'd like you to place your cap in the jar for the Australian Breastfeeding Association Bendigo Group! I'd also like you to spread the word, so that the group can get as many bottle caps as possible. This promotion is running for ALL of May. The winning group gets $300, and the others get $100, so either way, we should get something, but the $300 would really help with the costs of training the lovely trainee Breastfeeding Counsellors and Community Educators so that the Australian Breastfeeding Association Bendigo group can keep providing support to families in and around Bendigo!
