Brisbane Lions Players Team Up With ICANIWILL To Launch New Campaign Jellified Friday July 24 And Help Children With Special Needs.
ICANIWILL founder Conan Visser announces the registered charity will launch JELLIFIED, 12noon, Friday July 24 from Brisbane’s Goodwill Bridge by dunking Brisbane Lions players Tom Rockliff, Dayne Beams and Pearce Hanley in jelly.
Jellified is a fun way for people, teams and businesses to raise awareness and funds for ICANIWILL. The launch of Jellified with Rockliff, Beams and Hanley will initiate more events, inviting everyone to participate and #GETJELLIFIED by dunking a mate, your boss or the CEO in jelly – and all for a good cause. Three options will be available: Dunk A Mate for $50 to help over 15 children, Dunk Your Boss or CEO for $1,000 and help over 312 children or become a platinum sponsor for $5,000 to dunk the boss or CEO in front of the media next to a high profiled personality and assist an entire school.
“Our number one objective is to make being involved with ICANIWILL cool and fun,” Mr Visser said. “That’s why we dunk a teacher or principal in front of the entire school on assembly. This influences the younger generation to get involved with ICANIWILL to bridge the social gap for a better tomorrow for all children with special needs,” he said. “Our second objective is to raise money that is desperately needed to get our unique and highly-effective programmes into multiple schools.”
“Personally, I can’t wait to be running around dunking my mates in Jelly and organising to dunk celebrities and politicians in front of the media for the world to see. It’s going to be cheeky fun to help ICANIWILL achieve its goals faster,” he said.
ICANIWLL is one of Australia’s fastest growing charities whose purpose it is to bridge the social gap for children with special needs through their junior mentorship programme. Over 4 million Australians have special needs with 80% feeling like they don’t fit in with society. This is why over 60% of our homeless are people with special needs. ICANIWILL are devoted to changing this.
