Join us in an exciting and innovative celebration of Edmund Rice Feast Day in 2022, and help raise vital funds to support ERFA’s (Edmund Rice Foundation Australia) development work in Australia and abroad.
On the final day of term 2, 2021, the Nudgee students walked in solidarity with disadvantaged people around the world. This gave Nudgee a focus for important discussions about social justice and sustainable development. It also provided vital funds to support ERFA’s programs.
ERFA worked with Nudgee to produce QR-coded postcards that promoted the campaign. These postcards were given to students to collect donations. We provided the QR code that linked directly to an ERFA custom-built donation webpage. This is a user friendly and secure portal to manage donations. Donors simply scanned the QR code on their smart phone to donate — no cash, no fuss. For the Nudgee donation webpage, donations from each Nudgee Student House were listed with a ‘live update’ tally — a great competitive motivator within the school community!
ERFA also helped launch the Nudgee event at a school assembly, using an engaging presentation.
Once your school has decided to be involved, ERFA will help with some step-by-step guidelines, templates, timeframes and general assistance to make the campaign a success. We will provide direct assistance to produce the postcards, provide you with a QR code and help out with the final text and design. ERFA will build and host the dedicated donation webpage, although each school might like to provide some customised photos and logos. Schools will be responsible for the design and management of the event; however, ERFA would love to help launch it at a school assembly!
Remember that your school does not have to do a walkathon campaign, or tie it to Edmund Rice Feast Day. These are just ideas. We are happy to work with your school and its unique ideas.
If you would like to get involved click here to provide us with a few details. This is not a compulsory activity, but we are very keen to help you make ‘Walk for Edmund 2022’ a success in your school. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to reach out directly.
