Communicare is up and running in 2021 – and front-footing a first for the organisation. We are calling on friends, family, Facebook followers and frankly all fellas we can think of to step up and join us for our new campaign.
Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot – you’re older, living at home alone, isolated, lonely and vulnerable. Now imagine if you were to take part in our fundraising day and wear your slippers to work, your small gold coin donation would then help a vulnerable older person get back on their feet (after a mixed year of COVID-19 isolation) and step right on in to their local Communicare friendship centre.
On Wednesday 14 April Communicare will be holding Wear Your Slippers to Work Day. You might already be doing this if your home has become your workplace – in which case you might choose to go to our website and make an online donation. If, however, you have a place of business to go to please wear your slippers proudly – and encourage all your colleagues to do likewise.
A gold coin donation to Communicare means you can relax in your slippers knowing you’ve helped an older person get out of theirs – and into a Communicare friendship centre! Now is not the time to drag your feet, rather it is an opportunity to put your best foot forward.
Together we can all raise funds to help a vulnerable older Aucklander make friends, enjoy a great get-together with those friends, share some companionship, some games and activities, lunch and a nice, hot cuppa. With your help we can foot the bill too if they need help with transport.
Contact Communicare by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone us (09 631-5968) and we will deliver a donation bucket for you to collect funds at your workplace. We will collect it again following Wear Your Slippers to Work Day.Back to calendar
