The Buhagiar family recently took the opportunity to fundraise for Red Nose at the christening of their first child Jordan Joseph Buhagiar.
Jordan’s mother Trish said “When we have functions we like to make donations to a worthy cause in lieu of your standard sugar almond bonbonniere. For our engagement and wedding we chose the Cancer Council Victoria. I didn’t think that was fitting for our son’s christening so I went in search of something different. With a vision of ‘a future where no child dies suddenly and unexpected during pregnancy, infancy and childhood’ Red Nose was that worthy cause. My family hasn’t be touched by the monster that is SIDS but many have. So with the money that we have donated I hope it helps getting that one step closer to the research needed to eliminate SIDS.”
The Buhagiars purchased 50 Red Nose lapel pins as gifts for their guests. Trish even designed her own backing card to let their friends know that a donation had been made to Red Nose on their behalf. The delicate organza pouches were filled with red and blue lollies along with the lapel pins, creating a unique and heartfelt bonbonniere for Jordan’s christening.
The gifts were an absolute hit with their friends and family who loved the idea of supporting Red Nose’s vital work. Trish also said that they had a great experience working with Red Nose saying “I would love to thank Rikki Stewart the community fundraising coordinator for all her help with organisation our bonbonniere. She was absolutely wonderful to talk to and was extremely helpful and ensured that our delivery of lapel pins arrived within a week.”
Red Nose would like to thank the Buhagiars for fundraising and for allowing us to help celebrate the safe arrival of baby Jordan.
