Journeys : April May 2009
BIG support for The Clown Doctors charity partner – five per cent of all membership sales in April will be donated to The Humour Foundation’s Clown Doctors for the month. Join online and we’ll increase our donation to 10 per cent. B The Humour Foundation, an Australian charity that aims to promote the health benefits of humour, established The Clown Doctors as the core program. Each year a team of 55 Clown Doctors, including loveable characters Dr I.M. Crackers and Dr Tickle, deliver much-needed doses of laughter to around 85,000 Australian children receiving treatment in hospital. Since BIG4’s partnership with The Clown Doctors began in 2007, we have raised over $150,000 for the charity using a variety of initiatives including fundraisers, auctions and special events. Earlier this year, BIG4 Holiday Parks donated all proceeds from memberships sold online to The Clown Doctors in an effort to comfort the Victorian bushfire survivors. The Clown Doctors visited Melbourne’s hospitals and relief centers to provide a little light relief to those affected. BIG4 also commissioned popular Clown Doctor dolls that can be purchased through the BIG4 website and at selected BIG4 Holiday Parks. Each doll wears a specially-designed doctor’s coat reminding people that The Clown Doctors are all about bringing BIG laughs. BIG4 members get exclusive special rates on accommodation at over 180 unique BIG4 Holiday Parks throughout Australia.
