MDA Annual Fundraising Appeal
ANNUAL APPEAL WEEK 2016
We relaunched our annual appeal in September with a new approach
that promotes a Week of Freedom from September 1 to 5. Our
awareness week was traditionally earlier in the year, but we have
changed this to be in line with global awareness days for
specific conditions on the international calendar (e.g. Duchenne
Awareness Day on 7th September).
Our aim was to start a conversation amongst our members, and
all New Zealanders, asking, "What does Freedom mean to you?"
If you missed out on this year, get involved next year. Here are
some ideas to get you started:
- Tell us what Freedom means to you, print off a poster, write
down your answer and share your picture with us on Facebook and/or
Instagram. Click here for
the poster or if your kids enjoy colouring in click here.
- Take up the challenge, give something up for the week of
freedom such as using elevators or some sort of electronic device.
Every time you cheat, you have to find someone to donate. See this video for
- Or help raise much needed funds through selling some of our
merchandise, contact your local branch for details.
