INNISFAIL CommBank staff recently dressed up in their craziest clown costumes and held a Trash to Treasure Sale for a week raising over $1,000 for the amazing work of Clown Doctors.
Staff were overwhelmed by the community response in bringing their unwanted items to be sold.
Any left-over craft items will be donated to local NDIS providers, whilst the clothes and linen will be given to Innisfail Youth & Family Care shelter.
Clown Doctors is the core program of The Humour Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that provides medical clowns to visit sick children in hospital, treating them with a different kind of medicine of mainly fun and laughter.
From 2017 to 2020, Clown Doctors was CommBank Foundation’s National Community Grant recipient.
The not-for-profit organisation received $1.2 million over three years through the generosity of more than 13,000 Commonwealth Bank employees who regularly donate a portion of their salary to the cause.
“We have been supporting the Clown Doctors for over 21 years and it’s a cause about which our team is very passionate,” said CommBank Innisfail Branch Manager, Margaret Milani.
“Through our fundraising efforts we hope to help Clown Doctors achieve their goal of providing more Clown Rounds in hospitals across Australia.
Clown Doctors said they were extremely grateful to the CommBank and the community for their generous support in raising much needed funds to help Clown Doctors continue to uplift and empower sick children, their parents, and hospital staff.
Clown Doctors bring much happiness to all who experience their magic. Their smiles, play, and laughter will always be needed while there are sick children in hospital.
These highly trained medical clowns are also professional performers who spread ‘doses’ of fun and laughter throughout the wards.
