CENTURY 21 Supports Charities Across Australia
As a leading global real estate company, we take charity support very seriously and are proud to be official supporters of three inspiring Australian organisations. The list of charities that we support includes Pink Ribbon - Cancer Council, Variety - The Children's Charity and Telethon.
Charity support is vitally important in helping raise awareness for critical health and social issues. We firmly believe in the efforts of the three charity organisations that we officially support and proudly do our part to help them whenever possible.
To read more about how each charity and how CENTURY 21 helps, please read through the information in the list of charities below. If you'd like to speak to us directly about our charity work or the list of charities that we proudly support, please contact your local CENTURY 21 branch now.
Pink Ribbon - Cancer Council
We are proud to once again be an official supporter of Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon campaign.
It is estimated that every single day around 50 Australian women are diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer. One in eight women will be diagnosed within their lifetime.
With no proven method of prevention or cure for this disease, charitable donations are imperative to raise awareness and to fund more support services, prevention programs and vital cancer research for these devastating diseases.
This is why CENTURY 21 Australia will be turning its world-famous gold jackets PINK for the entire month of October.
It won't just be our jackets which will be turning PINK for October - our ties, scarfs, website, signboards and marketing collateral will also be making the switch in support of this worthy cause.
In 2014, team members raised close to $140,000 for Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon campaign. In 2015 we hope to beat this record!
For this reason we will be strongly encouraging each and every one of our many offices Australia-wide to support this potentially lifesaving initiative and get involved in one way or another.
Offices will be purchasing pink jackets, ties and scarfs, displaying pink merchandise boxes in their offices, bringing donation boxes to open houses and auctions, hosting PINK events in their local communities and running social media campaigns and distributing local media releases to raise awareness for the cause.
We believe that by working together we can all help to make a difference.
Variety - The Children's Charity
Variety is a world-wide charity committed to enabling disadvantaged and disabled children to experience a better quality of life. It was established in America in 1928. Variety began in Australia in 1975 when Paul Hogan founded Tent 56. Each state of Australia has its own Variety. Money raised in each state is distributed within that state to children in need.
CENTURY 21 Australia has pledged support to Variety to raise funds on many levels, by state and on a national basis.
For the past twenty three years, CENTURY 21 has proudly supported the annual charity telethon in Western Australia. Each year, the Telethon Home's focus has been on achieving the highest possible sale price for Telethon - a charity that is very close to the hearts of many people within our organisation and the general public alike.
This year's 2013 stunning 'Hamptons' style home in the Honeywood Estate at Wandi was sold by CENTURY 21 Cockburn Central for $760,000. All proceeds of the home go to the WA Princess Margret Institute for children in WA.
The charity began in 1968 when a group of senior executives from Channel 7 Perth established Telethon with a 20 hour non-stop program broadcast from the studio, which raised $104,829.
Since its inception, Telethon has raised over $103 million and provided much needed financial assistance to a significant number of charitable organisations, children's hospitals and research/medical facilities in Western Australia.
