Facilities First Australia (FFA) has announced they will partner with The Kids’ Cancer Project for a second year to support the annual national Write A Book In A Day competition.
The national cleaning and maintenance service has committed $25,000 to promote the literary competition that not only challenges participants to produce an illustrated story book in 12 hours for children in hospital, but also requires them to raise funds for childhood cancer research.
“As a provider that has been around for over two decades, we’ve managed to hone in on the one consistent factor that will always be relevant – care,” said Ben Bayot, FFA CEO.
“So it’s important for our brand that we only affiliate with like-minded organisations through activations that promote that value.”
“Now that our business has expanded into the health and education sector, our partnership with The Kids’ Cancer Project and Write A Book In A Day is even more compatible,” he said.
Owen Finegan, The Kids’ Cancer Project CEO said this was an excellent example of corporate philanthropy in action.
“FFA’s generosity is not only helping children diagnosed with cancer, they’re able to drive engagement in the core areas of their newly expanded business,” he said.
“While Write A Book In A Day is a team competition open to adult writing groups and students in Year 5 and up, the majority of participants are coordinated by schools. It’s this excellent type of community engagement that The Kids’ Cancer Project can offer,” said Finegan.
