Spastic Centres' '$2 for you' Campaign
6 November 2002 at 12:11 pm

Hot on the heels of Earth Share, the Spastic Centres of SA Foundation have launched a new fundraising campaign to encourage all South Australian workers to donate just $2 each pay to the Spastic Centres.

The new campaign, unveiled last Thursday, October 31, has already attracted numerous calls to find out more.

The Spastic Centres of South Australia, one of the state’s best known charitable organisations, provides accommodation, respite and support services for over 500 children and adults with cerebral palsy and other severe and multiple disabilities

However, in recent years there has been an increase in both the number of children diagnosed with cerebral palsy and the life expectancy of adults – this has escalated demand for their services and consequently, the Spastic Centres now need more help than ever.

The Spastic Centres say the new “$2 for you” campaign is an easy, hassle free way of making a small, regular donation.

The concept is simple – each payday, workers in South Australia are invited to make the small donation straight from their wage, either through their company’s pay office, or their credit card if they’d prefer. The Centres state that a donation of $2 is rarely missed, but will make a big difference when all contributions are added up – every dollar counts!

This payroll donation program is a new campaign to add to the hundreds of workers throughout the state who have been contributing to the Spastic Centres for over 40 years, and earlier this year celebrated raising $2.5 million.

Funds raised by the Spastic Centres help to purchase essential, specialised equipment to cater for the unique needs of their clients. Examples include: a child’s bathing frame ($400); child and adult sensory monitoring equipment ($30,000); and an adult vehicle access lifter ($15,000).

Individuals, companies and organisations keen to get involved in “$2 for you” can call the Spastic Centres on (08) 8268 5000, or email 24U@SpasticCentresSA.com.au
