Expressions Tea Towel
New for this year... if you take the Top 8 Challenge for a child with an EGID (including siblings) then they automatically get a spot for their drawing to be printed on our Expressions Fundraising Tea Towel.
We will email you the simple instructions (which will be as easy as getting your child to draw in black felt tip on a 1/4 of an A4 sheet of white paper their picture and their first name and either post the page back to us or scan it yourself and email it back if you are able to).
The tea towel will be printed and available for purchase from ausEE's online gift shop well in time for Christmas presents for friends and family. The cost for the tea towel will be a reasonable $15 including postage and these are quality cotton tea towels that look great and will make a cool memento! Their drawing will appear with lots of kids just like them living with an EGID including siblings whose lives are very much also affected by an EGID. All ages welcome to submit a drawing!
Participation is optional and to be fair only one spot per child will be allocated even when multiple friends and family take the Top 8 Challenge for the same child. Anyone who supports the Top 8 Challenge will be given the option to be included in the tea towel (including: buying wristbands or virtual badges, making a donation, buying tickets for the Sydney Top 8 Challenge event, or setting up a fundraising page). Click here for all options and to get started! The top fundraiser for ausEE's Top 8 Challenge will receive not one but two free tea towels as our way of thanks for supporting our National fundraising event!

Why not ask if you can bring along a Top 8 Free morning tea to share with your child's class too (remember to ask about any other allergies kids may have in the class).
