I would like to introduce the lovely “Miss Leuki”. First starting as an internal fundraising effort for Kialla Pure Foods, Miss Leuki has since grown up and spread her wings. In an effort to raise awareness and funds for leukaemia, she is on the road and more businesses are getting involved. I encourage those of you who are interested to donate to this great cause on the Leukaemia Foundation's website and become a friend on Facebook.
The staff at Kialla Pure Foods and Aus Organic Feeds gathers once a month for a social BBQ / Morning Tea, on the last day of each month, to celebrate staff birthday’s and new staff recruitment. Early September 2010 from a staff suggestion box the company decided to adopt a corporate charity each year. For the year ending September 2011 The Leukaemia Foundation will be Kialla Pure Foods and Aus Organic Feeds charity focus .
The Leukaemia Foundation funds research for better treatments and possible cures for leukaemia, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders, as well as providing personalized and much needed support and care for patients and families. A Great Cause!
Miss Leuki has been appointed as the new company mascot for Kialla Pure Foods’ and Aus Organic Feeds and is the corporate charity figurehead, which saw Indigo Web and Black Canvas along with Bank of Queensland become Miss Leuki’s first friends. Each of these corporate businesses fully endorses our goals for raising funds for The Leukaemia Foundation and these business are represented as corporate sponsors on Miss Leuki’s Face book page. Each have donated their valuable skills and time to help us with the banking and technical side of corporate fundraising. Each month staff members donate a gold coin towards supporting the Leukaemia Foundation. As an extra bonus, Kialla Pure Foods and Aus Organic Feeds will match the donations given by staff, dollar for dollar at the end of September 2011, at which time this money will be officially handed over to the Leukaemia Foundation.
Miss Leuki’s task for this 12 month period is to raise awareness and to been seen out and about with suppliers and customers. Miss Leuki has a varied wardrobe which can suit any situation she finds herself in. Flying all over Australia and internationally she has already endeared herself to clients everywhere. Her bright wonderful outfits are eye-catching in the extreme and are very suited to her corporate profile as a company representative. Miss Leuki has met many generous people whom have donated money to the Leukaemia Foundation to date and to successfully promote the cause for support for those less fortunate than ourselves.
To date Miss Leuki has raised $306.70 – but there is still so much more needed for this worthwhile cause, to assist children and adults beat this debilitating disease and have a bright future fulfilling their dreams.
