DINGO AUSTRALIA GOES PINK FOR MCGRATH FOUNDATION
In an exciting development for breast awareness, iconic Australian Mini Digger manufacturer, Dingo Australia, will ‘go pink’ for another great Australian icon, the McGrath Foundation.
Dingo Australia will proudly donate $100 to the McGrath Foundation from every new Dingo machine sold during the next twelve months, providing much needed funds to help the Foundation place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia and increase breast awareness among young Women.
100% Aussie owned, Aussie made and Aussie proud, the Dingo is Australia’s favourite Mini Digger, popular with home renovators, landscapers and tradesmen throughout Australia and a regular on Channel Nine’s Domestic Blitz during the 2009 and 2010 series.
Dingo Australia Marketing Manager, Clare Simmons, said that while it might be surprising to see a Mini Digger manufacturing company ‘going pink’, Dingo Australia is a family company that is committed to making a difference in rural communities.
“Dingo Australia is a family company that has been manufacturing Australian machinery for over two decades. Despite our large size, the Dingo factory is still proudly based in the rural Queensland town of Dalby, demonstrating our commitment to regional families and communities. We have recognised the work of the McGrath Foundation in rural centres like Dalby, where there is currently a McGrath Breast Care Nurse on duty, and want to acknowledge the synergy in vision between our two organisations through supporting their valuable work,” said Clare.
“The colour pink is not often associated with the machinery manufacturing industry but we are proud to ‘go pink’ and draw attention to the work of the McGrath Foundation. We are very conscious that behind every Dingo owner operator is a family member or friend who confronts real issues like breast cancer in their daily lives. As the McGrath Foundation motto says, together we can make a difference,” said Clare.
The McGrath Foundation’s Managing Director, Kylea Tink, believes the friendship with Dingo Australia is one that will only continue to grow in coming years.
“At the Foundation, we’re proud to be able to add a splash of hot pink to construction sites all over Australia, so we’re thrilled to have Dingo Australia on board as one of our newest Corporate Friends,” said Kylea.
“Our friendship with Dingo Australia will help us raise valuable funds to support Australian families experiencing breast cancer right across Australia through the placement of additional McGrath Breast Care Nurses,” said Kylea.
