SEEKING HELP FROM FELLOW TRADIES, LOCAL MEDIA & BUSINESSES
We are seeking help from fellow tradies and the Toowoomba media and business community to make a contribution or sponsor items for a planned Xmas Appeal Auction to be held on Saturday 28th November.
Mitch is a young Toowoomba Tradie - his family a long-time customer of Simon Home - who is suffering from a rare kidney disease, which ties him to dialisys machine three days a week and has forced him to, not only give up his work (since January 2015), but sell his house. The chance of his young wife and he having the family they dreamed of, is slim to none. Unfortunately, Mitch and his family already lost his sister to this horrible disease. Read more here.
We've already secured a couple of great prizes from some great people:
NRL Legend Billy Moore has already donated a signed jersey to our auction
Ceramic Artist John Fegan has pledged one of his gorgeous artworks to the auction.
We're calling upon our suppliers, fellow tradies, local businesses, artists, community celebs of any kind, who have something they can donate to this cause, so Mitch and wife Hayley can enjoy a few stress-free days over Christmas (not having to worry so much about all their bills), then we'd love to hear from you.
You might be able to donate a product or service, your time (if you're a local media person or celeb), a few dollars or even something of value you've never gotten around to using and has just been gathering dust in your garage .... it will all help.
We're also looking for an auctioneer who has an hour to spare on Saturday 28th November, and he or she is happy to donate.
All businesses who support this fundraiser are invited to promote their business on the day by way of a banner or flag, and we'll be happy to distribute flyers and other promotional materials.
If we can raise enough items for this auction and the day goes ahead as planned, Simon Home will promote the event on TV, radio, via Facebook ads and direct mail to our growing database. Your support will be acknowledged via your logo with link to your website or Facebook Page on a dedicated landing page on our website, with the link used in appropriately in promotions.
