14 April 2003 at 1:04 pm
Would you like to shake up your fundraising performance without giving yourself RSI? Learn the secrets of growth in an age of charity fatigue at ‘Charity in Australia -The Shake Of Things To Come’ and help a good cause at the same time by attending workshops being run in Sydney and Melbourne in May.
Would you like to find out how world-leading charities increase their revenue by increasing their heart and mind appeal? Is it possible to be more successful with less effort?
These special workshops feature:
Charity PR Professional and Author of The Giving Spirit Sheryn Cooper-Smith,
Ad guru Chris Fleming of Look Advertising ,and
Design Dynamo Victor Cabello from MLC Powerhouse Design.
Tickets are $65 including light refreshments.
In Melbourne the workshop will take place at 6.30pm on May 20th
At The Richmond Club 100 Swan St, Richmond.
In Sydney the workshop will be at 6.30pm on May 29th at Y On The Park (YWCA hotel) 5-11 Wentworth Ave, Sydney.
Profits from these workshops will be donated to a new charity called The Wishbone Foundation which provides relief to ailing members of the Australian community through free health care for their pets.
The Wishbone Foundation aims to reduce animal surrender rates and increase health and happiness among vulnerable Australians by caring for their pets; the first and only organisation of its kind to operate nationally in Australia.
Sheryn Cooper-Smith, Founder and CEO says there are thousands in the community with pets they dearly love but struggle to care for. These animals often fall into neglect or have to be surrendered to shelters because of lack of resources, or the physical ability to do basic things like walking, bathing, even feeding.
Cooper-Smith says with the help of their team of volunteers and sponsors, Wishbone is able to provide health care, exercise, training, grooming and respite care free-of-charge to those who need it most, and most importantly, help to keep canine kids with their families.
The foundation will work with Australian welfare organisations to reach at-risk members of our community – the elderly, chronically ill and disabled.
Wishbone officially launched in March in Melbourne, Sydney and South Coast of NSW, and is expected to be operating nationally by 2004.
