Greetings fellow Canberrans,
Just a short plea to ask any and all who are interested to cast a vote for our images in the Canon “Creative for a Cause” competition.
The winning entry recieves $60,000 for the charity of their choice. We have nominated the Newborn Intensive Care Foundation (the charity arm of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Canberra Hospital). You may be aware from recent radio and TV campaigns that they are raising money for a second mobile humidicrib for the regions premature and critically ill babies. This money would be a decent chunk towards that end.
My son was born a month premature in January this year, and became seriously ill by the time he was a week old. Without the neonatal intensive care unit and that mobile humidicrib, he’d have been in serious trouble.
Hoping you’ll all have the time to vote. Voting closes on July 10th. I’ll include the URLs below.
Cheers, and apologies if my plug here was too shameless 🙂
