in May 2014 was a celebration of feathers, fruitbowls and samba. What a blast and a fabulous way to raise awareness and much needed funds!
Dick Smith Foods $1million giveaway
Thankyou to all those that sent photos and voted for the Gidget Foundation in the Dick Smith Foods competition
. We were successful in winning a $20,000 donation! The Gidget Foundation also featured in a segment on the competition that ran on Channel 9’s A Current Affair
. We hope that this publicity also helped raise awareness of perinatal depression and the work of the Gidget Foundation.
Thank-you also to all those who participated in running events
and chose to raise money for the Gidget Foundation; Zsa-Zsa Bowie Wilson who participated in the Sydney Running Festival, Anita Mertkhanian who participated in Sydney Harbour 10k run and Patricia Durning who participated in the City2Surf along with Team Gidget and Premier Mike Baird. A big thank you!
Glenmore Spring Ladies' Lunch
There were other events during the latter half of this year that raised funds for the Gidget Foundation including the Glenmore Spring Ladies lunch
and the Melbourne Cup lunch. Every donation counts and these events also raise awareness of the work of the Gidget Foundation.
Bun in the Oven
Our final fundraising event for the year was launched in Postnatal Depression Awareness Week. By asking people to host ‘Bun in the Oven’
events we hoped to provide everyone with an outlet for party creativity. Thank you to those who supported us.
