Red Bow Annual Appeal
RED BOW DAY 2016 – FRIDAY 4th MARCH
Show your support this Red Bow Week and help raise vital funds for Queensland families living with muscular dystrophy & other neuromuscular conditions.
About the appeal
Muscular Dystrophy Queensland celebrates our Red Bow Annual Appeal every year throughout March, with the aim of increasing awareness of muscular dystrophy while raising much needed funds to support the services we provide for individuals and families affected by MD and other neuromuscular conditions in Queensland.
We need your support!
Red Bow Month is a great time for you to get involved with our charity. We need your help and there are plenty of options available, depending of what you’d like to do.
We promise to assist you with your event by providing information packs, posters, links and also a guest speaker at your school or work place.
Some fundraising ideas include:
- Host a ‘Wear Red for MD Day’ at your school, workplace or community group by wearing red and collecting a gold coin donation.
- Making Muscular Dystrophy Queensland your charity of choice by simply collecting your lose change at home throughout the month of March in a ‘care for change’ donation box.
- Hosting a ‘morning tea for muscular dystrophy‘ at home or at work and collecting gold coin donations from those who participate. Perhaps even run a ‘best red bow competition’ which could include anything from shoelaces, a red belt, a bow tie or a bow in your hair.
- Perhaps you’d like to set up a charity stall at your local shopping centre, or
- Get together with family and friends to run a sausage sizzle at your local Bunnings, Officeworks, Woolworths.
Find out more about how to get involved by emailing the Fundraising & Events Team. We’ll help with all you need to know.
All Hallows School and Red Bow Day
For more than 15 years, on the first Friday of March the Year 11 students of All Hallows School flood Brisbane’s CBD, selling Red Bow Day merchandise, collecting donations, and raising awareness of muscular dystrophy.
Their energy and enthusiasm seems boundless, as each year they aim the set the record for highest collection.
Muscular Dystrophy Queensland is truly grateful for the support of All Hallows School and thanks the student, past and present, for their ongoing support.
