I have been approached by the Sydney Childrenís Hospital Randwick and the Make a Wish Australia Foundation for communication support for their 2015 Christmas campaigns.
Both Christmas campaigns are similar in nature. They are focused on raising money for sick children and their families this festive season. They are calling on the community, particularly those who decorate their homes with Christmas lights, to create fundraising pages and raise money for these causes.
Creating a sense of community is at the heart of Councilís ethos. At Christmas time I think itís particularly relevant to think of others in the community who may not be as fortunate.
We are in a position to use our existing communication channels with the community to help these hard-working charities and support kids in need at Christmas.
Supporting local charities at Christmas time directly contributes to our sense of community.†
That Council offer communication support to community led initiatives such as the Sydney Childrenís Hospital Randwick and the Make a Wish Australia Foundation Christmas campaigns.
