WHO would have thought using a mundane task such as photocopying as an incentive to raise money for others?
LJ Hooker Rockingham’s Ingrid Feinauer came up with an initiative where applicants who require photocopying can make a $2 donation.
It has now become an annual fundraiser for the business.
At the end of 2017 it resulted in $400 being raised for the Lucy Saw Centre.
The money was used to buy presents for children who were victims of family violence.
LJ Hooker Rockingham director Paul Baird-Murray said it was a great initiative from his fellow director and business partner.
“We have given various items in the past from our own funds to the Lucy Saw Centre,” he said.
“However this year with the $400-plus generated from the photocopier fundraiser we spoke to Anne Moore from the centre who suggested that toys would be ideal at Christmas as many mothers and children arrive at that time and miss out on Christmas presents.
“It helps the mothers get counselling and get their lives back on track while their children are kept occupied with games and toys.
“We have supported this organisation over the years and see ourselves to continue to offer support.”
He said they also support the Soul soup patrol in Rockingham and donate via the help from team members and clients.
