Lorraine Lea established the Party for Kids with Cancer® fund in honour of the company’s founder, Peter Ryan, who lost his battle with cancer in 1999.
The aim of the cause is to provide much needed additional services to major Australian and New Zealand hospitals that specialise in treating children and adolescents with cancer. Donating monies directly to the hospital makes sure the full amount is spent within the selected hospital to help improve the quality of the patients’ everyday lives.
Donations are raised by Lorraine Lea sales Consultants during a special promotional period (1st – 30th June 2012) when we hold linen and manchester parties. This is achieved through a number of ways:
- Consultants donating their Party Profits
- Hosts donating their Party Credits
- Guests making cash donations
- Other sundry fundraising activities such as raffles, auctions, fundraising parties, etc.
PLUS $3 from the sale of every PJ Bear goes toward the cause all year round.
Since 2000, we have raised over $776,000, which has been given directly to hospitals to enhance the lives of their young cancer patients.
In 2012, our Party for Kids with Cancer® fund will be going to hospitals in Tasmania. We are delighted to be donating for the second time to Tasmania and this year we hope to DOUBLE the previous donation amount from 2005.
Join us as we Party for Kids with Cancer® during June! You can help by:
- Holding a party
- Donating part or all of your Host Credits
- Making a donation
- Purchasing a PJ Bear
