Ordinary Pets For An Extraordinary Cause

This July, ordinary animals across Australia will contribute to the care of seriously ill children across four hospitals associated with Ronald McDonald House. 

Paws For Sick Kids aims to raise money for at least 625 nights of accommodation for families of unwell children. This is vital for families who live over 100km away from treatment at Sydney Children’s Hospital. 

The charity also want to see children happy and willing to come in for treatment. 

Enter your fury (or scaley, or even feathury) best friend; by entering the challenge and using #pawsforsickkids, your pet’s photo or video will be shown to sick children around Australia, encouraging smiles. You will be able to choose from seven challenges that showcase your pet’s personality to the world. 

Paws For Sick Kids is by design a cheerful campaign. We want it to brighten the moods of the families we support, as well as positively engage the general community. Pets provide a really unique form of comfort,” said RMHC Sydney CEO, Simone Daher.

The charity is also calling for donations in addition to making children happy. When you post your pet, you might also collect sponsorship from friends.

The task is simple. Show off your beloved pet, raise some funds, and help the families of sick children have the best experience they can.
