Sydney, Australia, December 20, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomex is proud to announce its partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation (Starlight) for 2018. Through this partnership, Bloomex has committed to supporting seriously ill children and their families across Australia.
In its first year of partnership, Bloomex will work with Starlight to activate two campaigns to raise funds for Starlight programs. Fifteen percent of each selected product purchased will be donated to help provide support. Throughout the year, Bloomex will also donate flowers and gift hampers to thank donors and supporters, to aid in fundraising efforts and to brighten children’s experiences in hospital or at home. Bloomex is investigating ways to provide further support to Starlight such as a "round-up your sale" campaign at checkout.
The Starlight Christmas Collection is already available and items can be purchased at https://bloomex.com.au.
Starlight brightens the lives of seriously ill children and their families, by replacing pain, fear and stress with fun, joy and laughter, through programs such as Wishgranting and the Starlight Express Rooms. A Starlight Wish is a dream come true for a seriously ill child or young person, giving them and their families something positive to look forward to during treatment. Starlight Express Rooms exist in all children’s hospitals nationally, and offer a treatment-free respite for seriously ill children and their families to spend time together, play, interact and have fun with other children.
"Bloomex couldn't be more excited to be entering this partnership with Starlight," says Sue McDonald, manager of public relations and corporate sponsorship at Bloomex. "We believe in the wonderful work that Starlight is doing to help brighten lives and we are proud to support their efforts."
“Every dollar that goes into our vital programs must first be fundraised. As Starlight relies solely on the generosity of the community, partnerships like Bloomex’s are essential in keeping the doors to our Starlight Express Rooms open for sick kids and their families. We truly appreciate Bloomex’s support, and simply couldn’t do what we do without support like theirs,” said Starlight’s National Partnerships Manager, Matt Geraghty.
