Caulfield Bears supporting Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation
This Saturday the Caulfield Bears will be supporting Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation. By wearing rainbow shoelaces in their footy boots, the players will be raising awareness of organ and tissue donation in Australia.
Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation was started by Allan and Kim Turner after the sudden death in 2004 of their 7 year old daughter Zaidee. The Turner family have been registered Organ and Tissue Donors for 5 years. As a result Zaidee donated her Organs and Tissues at the Royal Children’s Hospital as were her wishes at the time.
Zaidee was the only child in Victoria under the age of 16 years and one of the youngest Australians to donate her organs and tissues in 2004. She was only 1 of 6 children nationally to donate their organs.
Since February 2006 Zaidee's Foundation have being selling Rainbow Shoelaces nationally to raise awareness of organ & tissue donation & transplant.
The Caulfield Bears are very proud to provide ongoing support to this very worthy cause.
