CARE package of thanks.
The 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami ravaged 14 countries and is recognised as one of the worst natural disasters on record. Generous donations from Australians helped deliver ‘Care Packages’ of aid to over a million survivors. Our problem – people don’t know where their donation dollars go. A decade later, on the anniversary of the tragedy at Australia’s biggest sporting event — the Boxing Day Test cricket match against India, one of the most affected countries — we delivered another essential package: a Care Package of Thanks featuring 10,000 personalised thank you letters written by survivors. We showed that a dollar given to Care today has a lasting impact on lives tomorrow.
