The Garage Sale Trail – Dainere’s Rainbow Splendiferous Garage Sale for Hope

Garage Sale Trail, the recovery edition, is coming to a town near you on Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 November 2020.

This year’s event was all about helping people in the community to make or save money by buying or selling second-hand.

The event is also one about sustainability through diverting valuable resources from landfill.  Someone’s excess goods are often a treasure or much needed item for another person.

For Dainere’s Rainbow this event provided a valuable opportunity to elevate awareness and raise desperately needed funds in these difficult and tumultuous times to bring hope for children diagnosed with brain tumours.

One hundred percent of all sales going directly to the world class research programs and projects the devoted Associate Professor Ziegler and his team are devotedly working on in memory of and as a legacy to Dainere. Always working towards the goal of a cure becoming a reality.

Items we had and ones that several people with a shining light of human kindness donated for the sale were put in the Garage Sale for people in the community to purchase over the two days of the weekend.

The Dainere’s Rainbow Team were able to meet a large variety of people within the Canberra Community and share Dainere’s inspiring story and the advocacy, awareness and fundraising efforts of Dainere’s Rainbow.

Some of those who visited the Garage Sale purchased beautiful gifts to give to their loved ones this Christmas and at the same time they walked away feeling a ‘warm glow’ knowing that they were also helping to make a difference and bring hope to children diagnosed with brain tumours.

We are so grateful to announce that $346.30 was raised and this year that means so very much.

We would like to extend our heartfelt and humble gratitude to Anne and David, Monique and Mark, Bron, Bernadette, Patricia and Sally for their thoughtful and most generous contributions for the Garage Sale and to all those who attended and purchased items.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to childhood brain cancer research at Sydney Children's Hospital

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation are proud to display the new Registered Charity Tick from the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), which aims to gives reassurance to the public that the charities they support are transparent and accountable. We rely on your donations and volunteering to ensure we can continue our vital work, so we want you to know your support is making a difference. Where you see the logo, it means the charity is registered with the ACNC so the public can easily find out what they do, who their beneficiaries are, how they are governed and how they manage their finances.
