In the past year, many of us have experienced uncertainty, social isolation and disruption. But for sick kids like 7-year-old Anabela, who’s had over 400 trips to the hospital since birth, this is something they face daily.
In fact, every minute of every day, a child is admitted to hospital in Australia. And when these kids’ worlds are filled with treatments and hospital visits, their need for laughter and joy is greater than ever.
The Starlight Children’s Foundation exists to give happiness to thousands of sick kids like Anabela. Underpinned by the World Health Organisation’s Social Health model, Starlight’s programs are based on positive psychology principles, with a mission to reduce stress and help sick kids feel more positive and resilient.
Starlight is the broadest reaching childrens’ charity in Australia, and relies on donations, fundraisers and partners to help them support kids of all ages, with all illnesses.
One of those partners is Cashrewards; a cashback platform that was built around giving back after its founders experienced the life-changing work of the Foundation first-hand.
Seven years later, Cashrewards has paid more than $100 million in cashback to its members, who simply shop online or in-store at participating retailers and get cashback on their purchases.
This has allowed the business to support more than 10,000 sick kids at the same time, donating 1% of business equity and 1% of every reward redeemed to the Foundation.
And now, Cashrewards is making a pledge to give back more than ever to Aussie shoppers and to kids like Anabela, with their Shop4Smiles campaign.
Every time a customer shops through Cashrewards this May, the business will double their donation to the Starlight Children’s Foundation, matching 2% of every reward earned to help local families.
To help reach their goal of supporting 1,000 seriously ill children this month, Cashrewards is also sweetening the deal for shoppers, with big cashback offers from brands including Stayz, Wotif, Adore Beauty, THE ICONIC, The Good Guys and lots more.
That means everyday shoppers can get great deals, plus cashback, on everything from fashion to fitness equipment and even their next holiday – and help sick kids at the same time.
Sound good? Joining Cashrewards is free and easy. Simply sign-up at the link below and search for your favourite stores before shopping as usual. You can even link your card to your Cashrewards account and get automatic cashback in-store at participating locations.
And if you don’t have any shopping to do right now, you can still donate directly to help Anabela and thousands of other sick kids. All donations made online between 3–9 May will be matched dollar for dollar by generous Starlight partners like Cashrewards.
Join Cashrewards now to shop the biggest deals from Australia’s leading brands, plus receive a $20 bonus on your first shop. And remember – every time you get cashback, you give back, too.
