OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH BRAINCHILD FOUNDATION

Soleful partnerships

Our partnership with Brainchild Foundation has emotional beginnings. Seeing the plight of young children and their families receiving a diagnosis of a brain and spinal cord tumours first-hand, we knew we wanted to do something. The only way to improve survival rates and find a cure is through awareness and research; both of which desperately need more funding.

Our partnership with Brainchild Foundation started in 2017. Since then we’ve raised over $256,666 — with proceeds from all sock sales going to the cause. This year we’re aiming to reach $400,000.

What is Brainchild?

The Brainchild Foundation’s mission is to assist children and young people 0-24yrs, diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumour to lead as normal a life as possible by providing financial, educational and emotional support to them and their immediate families. Brainchild also supports research into these debilitating diseases through targeted financial grants.

Brain cancer treatment is intense. It lasts for months at a time and impacts on all members of the family. Often one parent becomes the primary carer while the other strives to maintain a wage. Regional families like Kade's fight the pain of being apart and the expense of coming together.

Surviving treatment begins a long journey of healing and recognising life may never be the same. Young minds can battle to fit back into life with their friends with initial physical fragility, loss of confidence, anxiousness and difficulty in learning and remembering new knowledge. After such a medical onslaught they deserve better. They deserve a quality of life that each of us take for granted. Brainchild Foundation strives to improve that quality.

Where your support goes

All profits of our sock sales go directly to supporting the children and their families through Brainchild Foundation's The Better Tomorrows program. This program provides much-needed funding to provide therapy, counselling, and tuition after their treatments.

For example, some children may need assistance with getting back to school, others may need physical therapy to regain use of limbs after surgery, and some children may need counselling to ease their anxiety as they learn to mix with their peers. Whatever the family needs, The Better Tomorrows program will work alongside available providers and ensure that no young person will have to cover the costs of that treatment.
