Make a difference for humanity
HAVE you got a mate with a hairy back that you would just love to wax?
Or perhaps you’d love to see your girlfriend give up make-up for a week?
Now is your chance to challenge your friends and make a difference with For the Love of Humanity campaign.
Red Cross has launched a new national fundraising campaign called For the Love of Humanity.
For the Love of Humanity is an interactive facebook application with a conscience, that allows you and your friends to challenge yourselves and do good, fun, exciting deeds to benefit humanity.
Any deed is a good deed to raise some dosh for Red Cross and help people in need.
Just create a deed, involve your friends, get some sponsorship, do it and post evidence for your friends to see.
Brad Timms, Red Cross’ community fundraising manager is experiencing the Love of Humanity first hand, with mates lining up deeds for him.
Top of the list is for Brad to give up his obsessive compulsive ways for a whole week.
Brad says “It’s going to be a tough week but I love the fact that my friends know me well enough to set a deed that is really going to challenge me. For the Love of Humanity I’m willing to lower my fastidious standards for a week to help Red Cross support people in need.”
Visit www.youtube.com and search ‘For the Love of Humanity’ to see another (painful) deed in action by one of our fearless supporters.
Can’t think of a deed? It’s easy once you get started…
Give up something you love for humanity – chocolate, beer, TV – whatever your pleasure, deprive yourself for a day, a week or a month and you could provide clean drinking water for communities in East Timor, Indonesia, Laos and Cambodia.
If you don’t feel like doing any deed, you can still help humanity by directly donating to Red Cross through www.redcross.org.au and click on how you can help or call 1800 811 700.
