Dominos and Sesame Lane join forces for local Doughraise!
Hudson is a 3 year old boy born with a congenital condition called Bilateral Microtia Artesia which means he has no ear canals and very deformed little ears. Without the use of a hearing aid, he is totally deaf. Hudson uses a hearing aid that vibrates on his skull to send the messages to his brain and uses that to understand sounds.
The family, who previously lost a child only 8 weeks after Hudson was born, has been saving for a life changing surgery which is performed by a Sydney based doctor who recently returned from eight years of studying the surgery in the USA. The Medpore surgery Hudson requires will cost the family $100,000. The family has been saving for this surgery since Hudson’s birth. They have started a recycling program in their local area by collecting cans and bottles, with neighbours also donating their recyclables.
When Stephen Moodie, Manager of Domino’s Pizza at Kallangur, heard about the story he met with the family and decided to try and help as much as he could. Stephen reached out to all the Dominos franchisees in north Brisbane as well as local day care provider, Sesame Lane Care and Kindergarten, to band together and assist the local family. On Wednesday 9th October, participating Dominos* are donating $1 from every single pizza sold with the hope of raising $15,000 for the family to contribute to the surgery. If the $15,000 target is donated through the Doughraiser, the family will be half way in their fundraising journey, and they will have enough to pay for the first of the two required ear replacement procedures.
Sesame Lane Care and Kindergarten are supporting the fundraiser by promoting the day to their families as well as by buying pizza for all their staff across 15 centres.
So why not have the night off cooking on Wednesday October 9 and help raise funds for Hudson!
