Woolworths Easter Fundraising Appeal in stores from Wednesday 17 March

We are so ‘egg-cited’ for the 2021 Woolworths Easter Fundraising Appeal!

From Wednesday 17 March to Tuesday 6 April, when you visit your local Woolworths store, you can add a $2 token to your shop or round-up at the checkout to help work wonders for sick kids all over Queensland and northern NSW.

100% of the proceeds raised through the Easter Fundraising Appeal in Woolworths stores in North Brisbane will be gifted to support the local kids’ ward at The Prince Charles Hospital through The Common Good. Managed by the Childrens’ Hospital Foundation, the ultimate goal is to ensure that we support families irrespective of where they live in Queensland, and with your help, we can fund equipment and regional support programs for kids, just like your local Woolworths Ambassador, to improve services and facilities in your region.

Meet Isla

LOCAL AMBASSADOR, NORTH BRISBANE QLD

Seven-year-old Isla has always been a happy, vibrant little girl so when her parents were told she had a serious heart condition it came as a huge shock. Isla was diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta, which is a narrowing of the large blood vessel from the heart. This makes it difficult for blood to leave the heart properly and can lead to complications later in life. In September 2020, Isla had open-heart surgery. The operation went well but unfortunately during her recovery, she developed extra fluid around her heart and lungs which resulted in 20 days in the hospital. Today, Isla is now six months post-surgery and she is doing so well. She was excited to return to school to see her friends and teachers. Isla had always said she wanted to be an artist when she grows up, but since her operation, she has changed her mind. She now wants to be a scientist, so she can “put on science shows for kids in hospital”.

From Wednesday 17 March, you can get your $2 token in the stores listed below.

  • Albany Creek
  • Eatons Hill
  • Warner
  • Keperra
  • Aspley
  • Brookside
  • Carseldine
  • Chermside Marketplace
  • Everton Park
  • North West Plaza
  • Stafford
  • Taigum
  • Chermside Central

So, this Easter, please add more than chocolate eggs to your basket and buy a $2 wall token or round-up at the checkout to work wonders for local sick kids.
