AGENT A BIG CHARITY SUPPORTER
LJ HOOKER Australia has recorded a collective $7 million in community donations for people in need through its eponymous charitable foundation.
The milestone figure came just ahead of LJ Hooker Foundation Day on September 20, the 89th anniversary of the iconic real estate brand.
Launched a year ago, the LJ Hooker Foundation now consolidates the grassroots fundraising activities of its network for major donations to charity partners Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.
Over the past year alone, $571,927 has been raised for the two organisations, with funds used to buy children’s medical equipment including a Carilex Coziny mattress for King Edward Memorial Hospital and CFA’s Consumer Connect, a world-first online community established to bring together Australians affected by cystic fibrosis.
LJ Hooker Foundation spokeswoman Heather Hilton said the foundation had helped local offices engage with their community and make a difference to the lives of children and cystic fibrosis sufferers across the country.
“On any give weekend, LJ Hooker teams around the country are fundraising,” she said.
