Telcoinabox in mission to raise $25,000 for cancer charity RedkiteTelcoinabox has set a company-wide one year goal to help support 10 families through their cancer journey by donating proceeds from their fundraising activities to Redkite, a cancer support charity for children, young people and their families.
Paul Line, CEO of Telcoinabox, said the company is pulling out all the stops to meet this goal. “Since we launched the initiative we have raised money by running in the City to Surf, sold off old office equipment and given staff the option to sacrifice a portion of their salary to Redkite.”
Redkite is the only national organisation which provides support to children and young people (up to age 24) and their families for the entire cancer journey.
On average, it costs $2,500 to support a family over a 12 month period with vital Redkite services including financial and educational assistance, support in hospitals through social workers and music therapists, and community-based support including telephone and email counselling.
In less than two months, Telcoinabox has already raised enough money to help Redkite support four families with access to essential services over a one year period.
“Our aim is to rally all staff behind the cause in the hope to raise up to $25,000. Having a common altruistic goal within a time limit has given our staff a sense that they are in a race to win.
“There’s a lot of momentum behind the cause. Each time we raise $2,500 we add the tally to our dedicated Redkite wall so everyone in the company can see what our efforts have tangibly achieved,” Line said.
Over the next few months fund raising events include the Footy Finals staff bakeoff, attending the Redkite Corporate Quiz in Sydney, and taking part in Redkite’s ‘Sea 2 Summit Challenge’ cycling event, riding 248 kilometres from Merimbula to Mt Kosciuszko.
