September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time where we are encouraged to “Go Gold” to put the spotlight on childhood cancer and the need to improve diagnosis, treatment and outcomes. There are so many ways to Gold in September, from wearing a gold awareness ribbon, to entering our photo competition. Foundation supporter Donna Field has gone gold in the best way she knows how – by getting crafty!
Donna runs her own small business, Field and Feather, specialising in eco-friendly, reusable bags. For the month of September, Donna has hand painted a limited-edition Gold Feather Tote Bag with a donation from the sales being made to childhood cancer research at CLCRF.
Donna and her family became avid supporters of CLCRF after her son Jackson was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in October 2013. The Field family spent 3 years in and out of hospital while Jackson endured intensive chemotherapy.
“I decided to hand paint my limited-edition Gold Feather Tote Bag as a way to raise childhood cancer awareness, fundraise for CLCRF and continue my own healing journey following Jackson’s diagnosis,” said Donna.
Jackson has now been cancer free for 2 years and is enjoying life to the fullest. Donna aims to continue advocating for children with cancer and hopes to help create a better world for all children.
The beautifully crafted tote bags are not only a great way to support childhood cancer awareness, but they are also beneficial for the environment. These eco-bags are reusable and made from natural and certified organic cotton – making them the perfect replacement for single-use plastic.
Buy purchasing one of these limited-edition bags, you can feel good about your purchase knowing you are helping to make a difference in more ways than one. The bags are $25, with a gold coin donation from each sale going towards the Foundation. Australia wide shipping is available for a flat rate of $8.
The limited-edition Gold Feather Tote Bags can be purchased in one of the following ways:
We would like to thank Donna for supporting CLCRF and for helping to raise awareness for childhood cancer in such a wonderful and creative way. If you have also created a way for people to Go Gold in September, we would love to hear about it!
