Dry July is here again!
Our favourite time of the year has come round once more. We’re pumped to support Dry July Foundation and help support people affected by cancer. We’ll donate $1 on every order checked out at Craftzero during the months of May, June and July. We’re all in and have signed ourselves up too!
Cancer affects many of us
According to Cancer Council, 1 in 2 Australian men and women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. We all have an experience with cancer in some form or another. We know the devastating impact a diagnosis has on our friendships, our communities and our families because we’ve all seen it.
What is Dry July?
Dry July, the annual campaign run by Dry July Foundation, is an incredibly successful fundraiser that asks people to go alcohol free for the month of July and raise funds for people affected by cancer. Whilst giving up alcohol for 31 days is the action we are asked to take, the purpose of being involved in Dry July is to help make a difficult time a little easier for cancer patients, their families and carers. Funds raised go to support over 80 cancer charities across Australia who provide comfort, care, information and support to people impacted by cancer.
Dry July Foundation
Dry July Foundation is the charity behind the Dry July campaign. Everything funded by Dry July Foundation is to benefit cancer patients and their families and carers. They help with the little things and the big things, and everything they do makes a tangible difference. Be it a comfier chair or a brighter waiting room, the support of a specialist cancer nurse, a bed close to treatment, a wellness program that helps in the cancer recovery journey or the information provided by a cancer support telephone operator, Dry July Foundation aims to make a difficult time a little easier.
Thanks to the over 200,000 people who have taken part in Dry July since 2008, they’ve helped raise over $60 million dollars, supported 80 cancer organisations and have funded 1,200 projects across Australia.
Craftzero is proud to be supporting Dry July Foundation this year in two ways. We’ve signed up as a workplace and we’re also donating $1 on every order checked out at Craftzero during the months of May, June and July.
