Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is a fun fundraising event where you can contribute to raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention and support services. Morning Tea is officially held on May 26 but any date in May is fine.
According to one of its numerous ambassadors, Ed Halmagyi, "the event is not just raising money for medical research, (while that's fantastic), it's about raising awareness and raising hope."
Most of its ambassadors have firsthand knowledge and close encounter with cancer, either from closely related families or friends, and are aware about the importance of this event. You can help tip the balance by becoming an ambassador and by giving your precious support to Cancer Council of Australia.
By joining forces with Cancer Council Australia, your money will help in different ways to improve their efficiency in fighting cancer. View how your money helps here.
