Despite its worthwhile and important role, Aunties and Uncles Queensland currently receives no government or recurrent funding meaning we have to raise 100% of the funds to run our program. This is always a challenge however, you can help to make a big difference to little lives by:
- Organise a Fundraiser through your workplace, local club or school;
- Fundraising Online;
- Approaching local businesses to donate prizes for A&U to use in its fundraising efforts;
- Joining IGA Milton’s myIGA Card Program – IGA Milton has added Aunties and Uncles as a beneficiary on their myIGA Card Program. If you want to get involved and support this initiative, then pick up a myIGA Card next time you are in the store. When you register the card online, tick A&U as the community group you wish to support and your points will accrue. Then, every time you shop in the store and use your card, not only do you receive great discounts and special offers, but your accrued points are also helping to raise funds for A&U. It’s as easy as that! Get behind this great program and we can all benefit. Visit www.myigacard.com.au to learn more!
