TAXIBOX is a proud sponsor of Red Nose. Annually, 3,200 Australian families experience the sudden and unexpected death of a baby or child. Red Nose is dedicated to ending this tragic loss of life. How? Through world-class research, advocacy and education. Since 1988, Red Nose has contributed over $16.7 million to research. That’s no small feat.
Our staff really got into the spirit of supporting this cause. From our TAXIBOX offices to our storage facilities and even out on the road, our team really enjoyed having a bit of fun showing their dedication and support. Right around Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Did you see us? Our mobile self-storage trucks even got decked out with red noses.
For the last few years we have supported this tremendously worthy cause. We encouraged our customers to snap a red nosed selfie with one of our self-storage units before June 30 and submit it to our Facebook or Instagram pages. We were stoked to get so many responses from our customers. Some of our customers were after mobile self-storage or on-site storage while others were moving interstate. They all took time out to support Red Nose Day. It was a lot of fun seeing some of the creative selfies and photos that came our way in support of Red Nose Day. Just for showing their support, we gave each of them $15 off their TAXIBOX and we made a $15 donation to Red Nose on their behalf. That’s a double win!
About Red Nose
Red Nose relies on the generosity of the community through Red Nose Day. Through fundraising events, and their partnerships with small businesses and large corporations. They have a simple yet powerful vision and purpose: A future where no child dies suddenly and unexpectedly during pregnancy, infancy or in childhood.
Red Nose provides a number of educational resources and programs to educate health care professionals and individuals on how they can help prevent additional losses. These include a child care kit that helps educate anyone who cares for a child on sleeping recommendations for the children. They provide an interactive website to guide and educate individuals on best practices from pre-pregnancy all the way through child development to five years old. It gives users a level of awareness they may not have otherwise on hidden dangers.
In addition to receiving monetary donations and support, Red Nose relies heavily on the support of private individuals through volunteering. Every year hundreds of volunteers support the work of Red Nose by hitting the streets to sell their Red Nose Day product, raffle tickets staffing their Christmas wrapping stalls. There’s even more opportunities to show your support. Join the Red Nose volunteer force and help them achieve their vision of a future where no child dies suddenly and unexpectedly during pregnancy, infancy or in childhood.
It’s all about making a difference. Whether you become a volunteer, make a donation to the cause or simply share this information with someone that may benefit from it, you can make a difference. All it takes is action. Help TAXIBOX support this worthy cause. “Real heroes don’t wear capes, they wear red noses”.
