Breast Wishes from FASS

The limit does not exist!; Day 5

Yesterday was the last Wednesday of our Breast Wishes GO PINK for June campaign, and what a fantastic month it has been! We have raised more than $4,200, and we haven't finished counting yet!

It was a shame we spent the day in re-instated COVID restrictions, but the team certainly did not let that stop them from looking fabulous in pink and raising awareness of our cause!

We would like to thank all of our family, friends, and colleagues for supporting us on this fundraising journey. Thank you to everyone who joined us in wearing pink on Wednesdays, to help raise awareness of the impact of breast cancer on fellow Australians.
 
We would like to say thank you to those who have donated so generously through our fundraising page; or by purchasing a coffee, treat, or trinket. Your contributions are going towards life-changing breast cancer research which will help save lives through early detection and preventative treatments.

We would also like to say an absolutely massive thank you to Sam & the team at Piccolo Me Main Avenue for being so supportive of our campaign! They have very generously donated through the Wednesday GO PINK coffee promotion! Also a big thank you to Piccolo Me Head Office for their generous offer to dollar match!

The kindness of everyone has just been so overwhelming. It is just so outstanding to see so many people come together to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation's goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

Thank you once again,
The Breast Wishes Team

GO PINK with us, drink coffee, & satisfy your sweet tooth; Day 3

We are at the midpoint for our Breast Wishes Fundraising campaign! Three Wednesdays' down, two to go!

It was great to see so many people rocking pink in support of our cause. Thank you to everyone who is showing up each Wednesday wearing pink, and to everyone who has been so generous in donating. We have now raised more than $2,600 and counting!

Remember, if you are on campus, there are also other ways to support us;

Grab a regular sized coffee from the Piccolo Me Main Cafe or Coffee Cart on Wednesday and Piccolo Me is donating $2 per coffee sold! Even better yet, Piccolo Me Head Office is dollar matching!
Make sure you either wear pink or mention GO PINK/Breast Wishes when ordering your caffeine fix, and whilst you are sipping that scrumptious pick-me-up, you are also saving lives!

We also have a selection of heart-shaped chocolates, chupa-chup flowers, pink biscuits, and hand crocheted pink 'ribbon' broches available at FASS Reception. Drop a donation in the tin, and collect one! 
Keep an eye out for other delicious treats in the next two weeks!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in pink again next Wednesday!

On Wednesdays we wear pink; Day 1

Today was our first Wednesday of June where everyone wore pink in support of our Breast Wishes Fundraising campaign!

The support from everyone on campus was fantastic, so many people wore pink in multiple different ways; from clothes, to nail polish, to wigs, and even coloured hairspray!

Our first Wednesday was such a fantastic turnout and we have already raised more than $1200 towards our goal! Looking forward to what the next four Wednesdays will bring!

Australia, get ready, we're going pink!

This June, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is challenging all Australians to GO PINK and raise funds in support of the thousands of women and men whose lives have been affected by breast cancer.

We've made a pledge to WEAR IT or COLOUR IT and raise funds for game-changing research into early detection and preventative treatments for breast cancer, which is vital to increasing survival rates.

More than 20 of us here at FASS have pledged to GO PINK to make a difference for those impacted by breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Almost 20,000 women and men will be diagnosed this year. That’s 53 Australians every single day. Since NBCF’s inception in 1994, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 76% to 91%. It’s proof that their strategy of investing in world-class research is working. However 8 women still lose their lives from breast cancer each day – mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and friends. 

Please donate to our page and you’ll be helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation step closer to their goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

YOU can make a difference. Let us know if you want to GO PINK with us!
