Customers at NightOwl’s 80 stores across the country can now purchase a $2 wall token with all funds going towards the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
It comes as part of NightOwl’s inaugural OwlGood fundraising campaign, which will run until 10 January 2023, and supports sick and injured kids in the community.
Glenys Tristram, National Marketing Manager at NightOwl Convenience, said they are excited to give back to the community and some of the sickest children through its first of its kind partnership with the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“As an organisation, we are extremely passionate about supporting and adding value to the communities we live in and serve and wanted to live up to ‘OwlPromise’ through allowing our customers to turn their everyday transactions into a force for good.
“Together, through the collective power of small change, we know the NightOwl community can make a huge difference for sick and injured kids across Queensland.”
NightOwl kickstarted the fundraising efforts by donating $5000 to the foundation and will also visit the Queensland Children’s Hospital with essential convenience snacks to fuel healthcare workers in the hospital.
Lyndsey Rice, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation, said they are honoured that their organisation was chosen as the nominated charity for the inaugural NightOwl OwlGood fundraising campaign.
“Each break-through in research, investment into new equipment or load eased by our patient and family support team – that is because of the generous support of our partners like NightOwl who allow us to continue to help sick and injured kids get better.
“No matter the donation, we encourage the community to get behind NightOwl and help sick kids both today and into the future.”
Funds raised will benefit children such as three-year-old Lachlan McCafferty, who suffers from bronchiectasis, tracheobronchomalacia, and anaphylaxis.
Lachlan’s time spent at the Queensland Children’s Hospital are made easier for him and his family through the support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
