Birthday Project 2013: How to Donate or Sponsor my Bridge Run

I’ve been asked by a number of my friends on how to donate so I decided to create a post for everyone to refer.

The goal of this post is to answer the question: “How to Donate?“.

There are a number of ways on to donate or show your support. I’ll list a few and if you think aI still miss something, kindly inform me.
1. Go directly to the Starlight Jumpstart Fundraising page and click on “Donate Now“.

 

2. Click on “Sponsor Me” link found on my blog’s sidebar widget. It will direct you to the Starlight’s official Fundraising page and click the “Donate Now” button. (See Option 1)

 

3. You can simply click on the direct link of the donation page: Everyday Hero Donation Page. It will redirect you to the page where you have to enter your name and payment details. Fill it up and click “Confirm & Pay”. That’s it!

Payment Methods: Credit/Debit Card, Paypal or Cash/Cheque (Australia only)

4. For Philippines based donation: You can directly deposit thru my BPI or BDO account and will just convert its equivalent to Australian Dollars. I’ll use the exchange rate of AUD 1 = PHP 40. Just email me the deposit slip to confirm the transaction. In return, I’ll be sending you a copy of the funds transfer notification with reference number for confirmation as well.

Account Name: Kathleen Madula

BPI Savings Account #: 4019009624
Branch: Tektite

BDO Savings Account #: 00280689306
Branch: SM Megamall B

5. You can also help just by share my link: http://www.starlightjumpstart.org.au/kathmadula to your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Blogs or Emails. They might be willing to sponsor me :)

Thank you very much for the support. God bless your generosity.

Getting to know more about Starlight Foundation

As I was learning more about the Starlight Foundation, I get so excited to join all their events. Currently, they have this movie nights event where you host a group of people to watch a specific movie. I also got excited to see a fun-run on mid September. I did the Sydney City2Surf this month just for fun, so why not do it again for a cause. It’s the how things go here in Australia. I’m not sure how they fundraise around here before the first fun run. My aunt told me that people do something to fundraise and the marathon is one of them.

Starlight Jumsptart

The fun run is called Starlight Blackmores Sydney. I’m not quite sure what Blackmores mean but that is how it’s called. The Starlight Children’s Foundation is one of the official charities listed on the Blackmores fun run page.

Starlight is the only organisation to have a permanent presence in all major paediatric hospitals throughout Australia – delivering programs 7 days each week to children with all types of illnesses & conditions where and when they need it most.

I called Starlight foundation to learn more about this fun run and the collaboration with the “Celebration Donations – Donating in lieu of a gift” program. I was able to talk to Tegan who willingly assisted me on how to combine the two. So they called Everyday Hero who is responsible for the donation pages and informed them of my concern. After a day, the just merged it and shifted my account to JumpStart instead of the Celebrations! How quick was that? :)

So instead of the Celebrations event page, I now have the JumpStart page that will be up and active starting today up until the 30th of September. I really wish I can raise up to $1000. If not, at least I tried.

Support me, okay? :)
