We would love to have you join us through a donation.
We believe in absolute transparency so before you donate we want you to know exactly what your donation will be used for.
Our hope is that one day we will no longer deliver any turtle night lights to children because there will be no more cancer. To help make that a reality, we strongly believe in the importance of helping to fund children’s cancer research, hence our $1 per turtle donation to our partners at ANZCHOG. The other donation, to help children and their families thrive in the face of cancer, is paid directly from Cloud b to the MaxLove project. In terms of other costs, thanks to the amazing Jetstar Flying Start grant Bryce was awarded in May of 2018, all of our travel costs to visit the children’s oncology hospitals in Australia and New Zealand are paid for by Jetstar (yay!!). Additional costs, like the cost of t-shirts, wrapping paper and stickers are funded out of St Andrews bake sale monies and local fundraisers (thank you Gold Coast community!).
This ensures that 100% of every dollar you give will go directly toward the purchase and delivery of Super Max the Turtle night lights as well as children’s cancer research and thrivership programs. Your donation money will never be used for anything other than that.
For donations made in Australia there are two options:
(1) Direct deposit into the bank account our partners at ANZCHOG have set up for this program. Donations here are completely tax deductible. Here is the pdf with information on how to do that: ANZCHOG donation form 2018_Super Max and Bryce
(2) If you would like to pay by credit card or PayPal, you can do that over the phone by calling our local partners at the Gold Coast Tallebudgera Lions Club on 0417 425 466. They can issue you a receipt that will be sent to your email or via text.
For all US donations, please go to our 2018 fundraising webpage at: http://give.maxloveproject.org/bryce
To personalise the turtle gifts for the children in treatment and their families, with every donation we invite you to write a short note that we will put onto a card that is given to a child with the Super Max the Turtle(s) you help us to purchase. We love the idea that every turtle is given with a note of support from the person/family who made that gift possible. As we learned from two year old Katerina in Greece, there is an inherent beauty and magic in receiving a gift from someone you have never met, especially when that person lives on the other side of the country or planet.
Below, you’ll see pictures of some of the beautiful notes that were written on the cards for this year’s journey around Australia along with pictures of some of the strong, brave superheroes who have received Super Max the Turtles thanks to donations like yours.
Finally, to everyone who is reading this, please see the short one minute “Thank you” video Bryce made below. We know we will reach our goal to give a Super Max the Turtle to every child diagnosed with cancer in Australia and New Zealand every year thanks to you.
