Cam­paign full of grat­i­tude

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

AUS­TRALIA'S hid­den he­roes who worked tire­lessly through a tur­bu­lent pe­riod of nat­u­ral dis­as­ters and a global pan­demic will be hon­oured in a new cam­paign, Thanks A Mil­lion, launched to­day.

The News Corp Aus­tralia ini­tia­tive in­vites read­ers to nom­i­nate those who have gone above and be­yond in a year of drought, bush­fires and through­out the COVID-19 cri­sis and to pub­licly say thank you.

The cam­paign will cul­mi­nate in a na­tional dig­i­tal hon­our wall on all News Corp

Aus­tralia web­sites with the names of nom­i­nees pub­lished in printed news­pa­pers across the coun­try.

News Corp Aus­trala­sia ex­ec­u­tive chair­man Michael Miller said the cam­paign would ac­knowl­edge any­one from front­line health, emer­gency and es­sen­tial ser­vice work­ers through to teach­ers, neigh­bours, su­per­mar­ket work­ers and vol­un­teers who all pitched in.

“The heart of our com­mu­ni­ties has shone brighter than ever this year,” Mr Miller said.

“We’re recog­nis­ing the strangers tak­ing in fam­i­lies af­fected by bush­fire, our neigh­bours shar­ing es­sen­tial items and the brave pro­fes­sion­als and vol­un­teers risk­ing their own health and safety to help oth­ers. Aus­tralians have shown what we can do when we sup­port one an­other. This cam­paign en­cour­ages all of us to pause and say thank you.”

Read­ers can nom­i­nate some­one at thanksamil­lion.net.au

News Corp Aus­tralia’s com­mu­nity am­bas­sador Penny Fowler said the cam­paign recog­nised our un­sung he­roes.
