My Story

Over recent years several close friends and relatives have sadly passed away prematurely because of cancer. During their medical treatment they had all received blood transfusions to help give them a chance of living longer. Even though I had become a regular Red Cross blood and plasma donor, I thought that I was just not doing enough to repay the kindness and selflessness of the blood donors who contributed to prolonging the lives of my loved ones at those times. I am now a Red Cross volunteer and am actively promoting and bringing awareness of the work of the Australian Red Cross by running in the Red Cross team in the Blackmores Sydney Marathon on Sunday 16th September. With your support, encouragement and kind donation towards Red Cross we can all help to contribute to the spreading of the charitable work of the Red Cross and their Blood Donor Centres. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Australian Red Cross create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Australian Red Cross

Red Cross is there for people in need, no matter who you are, no matter where you live.

The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement helps tens of millions of people around the world each year and here at Australian Red Cross, we care for local communities in Australia and further afield.

By running for Red Cross and raising funds, or simply donating, you’ll be bringing hope to people and communities facing the toughest times of their lives:

• $42 will help provide three months of safe drinking water from a water purification plant for two people following an emergency in our region

• $50 will help family members separated by war, conflict and disasters to find each other again. Every year thousands of families lose touch with loved ones caught up in areas of conflict or disaster. Through our worldwide tracing network, Red Cross works to re-establish that contact, by sending messages and clarifying the fate of missing loved ones

• $150 can help recruit, train and retain an emergency services volunteer to help in evacuation centres, do door to door checks, help out in community events after a disaster

• $2500 can help run an evacuation centre providing a safe place for people who have nowhere else to go during a flood, fire or cyclone
