‘18 for 18’ campaign a beautiful tribute to Hunter

Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting our ‘18 for 18’ campaign in December last year.

We lost Hunter over 6 years ago, at the age of 12 and as we approached his 18th birthday, we knew the day would be an emotional one for our family.

We would give anything to be celebrating with him, but instead, we gathered our family and friends and hosted an 18th party Hunter would be proud of!
As part of the celebrations, we launched our ‘18 for 18’ campaign, asking you to donate $18 in honour of Hunter’s 18th.

What happened next blew us away as watched donation after donation come in from $18 to $180 to over $1,000 to help families who are going through what we went through. YOU, our generous supporters, raised over $8,500 to help South Australian families in Paediatric Palliative Care. Thank you!

Your donations, messages, ‘shares’ and ‘likes’ all help us spread the word and help ease some of the
isolation these families feel.

So, from the bottom of our hearts, we say a tearful yet joyful, THANK YOU!

Ella and Jarrod

And to Hunter – We miss you every single day. We hope you are proud of the impact you’re having on so many families and we hope you enjoyed watching your celebrations from above. We love you.
