Late last year, Nude by Nature donated to the wonderful Sydney Children's Hospitals Foundation, and this entailed supporting their 2018 ‘12 Days of Christmas’ campaign. We were thrilled to be able to donate not only financially, but also to volunteer at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
In December, during the campaign period, a group of our Sydney team spent a day at the Hospital, and we thoroughly enjoyed supporting the Foundation team with all of their Christmas activities created to entertain and engage children, families and staff during the 12 Days of Christmas, plus to discover more about the incredible medical research taking place in the Hospital and how this is helping many children around Australia.
Whilst at the Hospital the Nude by Nature team helped by setting up a gaming grotto plus an arts & crafts table for kids to use, wrote letters from Santa, and gave out presents to children throughout the day as well. It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for us to be part of.
The Sydney Children's Hospitals Foundation supports five organisations who are part of the Sydney Children's Hospital Network. This includes the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage, The Newborn and Paediatric Emergency Transport Service plus Kids Research. The Foundation specifically provides funds for the vital clinical care that children (across the five organisations within the network) need, thereby giving them the best treatment and hospital experience possible. In addition, as the Nude by Nature team discovered the Foundation also invests in research for future ground-breaking treatment.
Everyone from the Nude by Nature team were taken on a tour of certain areas of the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick and saw the extraordinary artworks of the Art Program that the Foundation runs as well. Throughout the Hospital stunning, colourful artworks of all shapes and sizes provide a positive environment to reassure, relax and bring happiness to all the kids, families and staff who are there each day. The Art Program also includes a rotating exhibition of selling shows created by independent and emerging artists. Exhibition openings are open to the public as the Hospital is a registered art gallery, with funds raised going back into the Hospital and to support local artists.
As part of our donation towards the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ campaign, the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation were able to purchase much needed equipment for sick and injured children including two life-supporting ventilators for the Intensive Care Unit, an ultrasound system, an ultrasound probe and a paediatric colonoscope.
