Dry July is here!
The team here at Everthought Education are proud to announce that we will be taking part in raising funds and awareness to support the Dry July Foundation, and we are incentivising you to join us.
The purpose of this month is to support the foundation in their efforts to raise money by creating a company donation team in which anyone can join and fundraise for. In doing this we will also be running a special offer throughout the month to encourage you to join us in this challenge.
This month is the perfect opportunity for you also to put down the grog and pick up a qualification. To support your decision, we are giving anyone who signs up to Dry July and registers for an RPL with us this month 20% off their RPL Qualification costs.
What is Dry July?
Dry July is a campaign and foundation started in July 2008 by three mates, Brett, Kenny and Phil, who wanted to take a break from alcohol, so decided to abstain for the month of July, coining it their ‘Dry July’. They also wanted to raise money for a family member affected by cancer, so they asked friends and family to sponsor them.
Hoping to raise $3,000 to buy a TV for their local hospital’s waiting room, the campaign was a huge success. The first Dry July ended up raising $250,000, thanks to the support of Adam Spencer, and Dry July was well and truly born!
Since 2008, Dry July has inspired more than 130,000 Aussies to go dry, raising $30 million for people affected by cancer, and funding projects at more than 75 cancer organisations across Australia.
How can we help?
By going sober for the month of July, we are hoping to raise money, with your help, for the Dry July Foundation in the search for a cure to cancer. In the month of July alone, approximately 11,500 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer and we are all likely to be affected by cancer in some way during our lifetime.
The funds that we raise together will go towards the Dry July cancer support organisations across Australia, to help improve patient comfort, care and wellbeing.
What this means for you.
Along with supporting charity, we also want to support you and your commitment to staying sober.
We are giving anyone who gives Dry July a crack by signing up and registers for an RPL this month 20% off their RPL Qualification costs, so there’s never been a better time to use your spare time to get that qualification you deserve – it’s easier than you think! All you need to do is simply sign up to Dry July on their website and provide evidence upon registration to receive discounts off your course costs.
We encourage you to join us in spending the month sober and to join our team and donate whatever you can at https://www.dryjuly.com/teams/everthought-education.
Improve your health and your career!
