May 26 is morning tea time, and time for you to help support the Cancer Councils fight against cancer. I spend so much time flogging my personal causes it’s about time something else got a look in, it’s not all about me right? Right? 🙂
So how can you get involved? You can host an event anytime throughout May or June. It’s simple, fun and best of all for a great cause! All you need to do is set a date, brainstorm some great morning tea ideas, invite your guests and raise money to help support the fight against cancer. Or if you can’t hold a morning tea drop into someone elses!
Click here to find out where they are in your local area or click here to host your own. Stuck for ideas on what to serve? The Cancer Council website has great recipe and hosting ideas, there is even a recipe to cover vegans! The recipes have been contributed by the likes of Matt Moran, Janella Purcell and Tobie Puttock, just to name a few. Check out Matt’s nommy carrot cake recipe. And did I mention that there are some great prizes up for grabs for hosts? How does a trip to Bali, Africa or Hong Kong sound, I hope you’re motivated now 🙂
The Goulburn Soldiers Club will be hosting a morning tea on May 26 from 10.30am till 11.30am, the cost is $5. Their humble goal is to reach $500, so if you can’t attend you can donate to them direct or get more info here. $500 shouldn’t be hard to reach, let’s make it happen!
The Cancer Council hopes to raise 11 million dollars this year for cancer, and every little bit helps!
1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. Here’s how every cup counts:
$5 can help us give a newly diagnosed cancer patient important support and information resources to help them through their cancer journey.
$10 can help staff the Cancer Council Helpline (13 11 20) with expertly trained nurses and health counsellors.
$20 can help train a Cancer Connect volunteer to provide one-to-one support for people diagnosed with cancer.
$50 can help us visit a community to educate health professionals and support patients and carers.
$100 can help provide SunSmart educational talks to schools and community groups.
$500 can help fund research into the causes of cancer and into new and improved treatments.
One dollar at a time you are making a difference helping to fund Cancer Council’s research, prevention, education and support services.
