This year Adobe Australia is supporting the Cancer Council and the local office divided into teams in a fun competition to see who could raise the most money for charity. My charity team decided to sing for your amusement. We also put together some great giveaways to encourage people to donate, including a Fair Dinkum Aussie Value Pack that we’re shipping to the winner, plus we had some Adobe software up for auction on eBay.
Check out this quick video;
Included in the Fair Dinkum value pack that was given away at random to a lucky donator was
Boomerang, Aussie fly swatter, Eucalyptus soap, Aboriginal culture cd-rom, Aboriginal music cd, Dangerous Australian animal tea towel, Stubbie holder, Soft toy koala, Soft toy kookaburra, The True Blue Guide to Australian Slang, “Does a Kangaroo have a mother too?” – childrens book, Chesty Bond’s men’s singlet, Zinc cream, Children’s classic Aussie book pack, Minties, Caramello Koala, Chocolate Freddo Frogs, Wizz Fizz, Tim Tam’s, Aeroplane Jelly, Twisties, Rosella Soup, Jar of Vegemite, Jaffas, Fantales, Box of Roses Chocolates, Can of Solo, Crunchie Bar, Picnic Bar, Cherry Ripe
Adobe employees from around the world donated more than $3000 within 24hours. Congratulations to Jenn Hathaway of the Adobe Newton office in the USA who was the winner of the hamper! Add the other donations + eBay auctions of software and my team raised a total of $9300 on the day. We won the competition between the teams but the even more rewarding is the good feeling of being able to help a great cause.
Five teams at Adobe raised a total of $24,000 for the Cancer Council in less than 24 hours! Thanks to everyone who donated!
BTW – You can still donate here if you wish! http://www.everydayhero.com.au/TFD
