Earlier this year, one of our generous supporters Beata Kotecha organised a charity birthday fundraiser for our Foundation. Beata organised a high tea party with her friends where, instead of presents, she asked for donations towards childhood cancer research.
Beata and her friends raised $1070 for the Foundation! “Since I’ve seen how much good work your Foundation is doing, I wish to help as much as I can,” expressed Beata. “All of the ladies who attended my high tea were very generous, so I thank all of them.”
There’s no doubt that Beata knows all about the importance of funding the research into childhood cancers, with her husband, Dr Rishi Kotecha, being an acclaimed paediatric oncologist and researcher at the Telethon Kids Institute Cancer Centre.
We are so appreciative of Beata using her birthday to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer. If you have a birthday coming up, consider asking for donations in lieu of presents!
This can be easily done through a Facebook Fundraiser. All you need to do is:
- Head to facebook.com/fundraisers
