The Australian Reptile Park has implemented a Pay Discover Forward program to benefit children in need of the Central Coast and their families.
Residents can “pay it forward” by redeeming their Dine & Discover NSW Discover vouchers for $ 25 coupons to use at the park.
The park will then donate a double pass to charity on their behalf.
The offer is valid until the end of August, with participants having 90 days to visit the park from the date they redeem their vouchers.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia (Sydney, Greater Western Sydney and Northern NSW Chapters), Make-A-Wish Australia, Kids With Cancer Foundation, Central Coast Kids In Need and Barnardos Australia will be the recipients of the prepaid passes.
On September 1, the park will count the charity selections and distribute the double passes given to each organization.
Park manager Liz Gabriel said all children deserve to experience the wonders of wildlife.
“As a way to pay for love onward, for every online Discovery Voucher redemption through our website, we will be offering a double pass to children and families in need, within their organization,” she declared.
“Not only are you helping us support happiness for the children who need it most, but you will also receive $ 25 to use for a visit to the Australian Reptile Park after the COVID lockdown is lifted. “
Kids With Cancer Foundation’s national marketing director Linda Nas said making kids smile while they are undergoing cancer treatment is priceless.
“Taking the time to be away from hospital appointments with doctors, waiting rooms and the confines of their own home makes all the difference for a child with cancer,” she said. .
“We are thrilled to be part of the Pay It Forward campaign with the Australian Reptile Park, so we can pass tickets on to sick children and their families.”
Gabriel said after opening the initiative in early July, the park had already pledged to donate more than $ 130,000 in tickets to charitable partners.
“We hope that with the support of the community, we can increase this number tenfold,” she said.
“There are so many children and families who need the extra help and now with the COVID restrictions in NSW, things are more difficult than ever.
“We want them to become children again and discover the wonders of wildlife.”
