Mark your diary because October 1, 2 & 3 will see a footwear revolution, as Youngcare hosts their very first Thong Day national awareness day.
Reflecting Australia’s laid-back, beach lifestyle and what it means to be young, Australian’s will be swept up in thong fever and don their thongs for a truly worthy cause – helping to provide choice in care and accommodation options for young Australians with 24/7 care needs.
While many details are still under wraps, Youngcare can reveal that specially branded Youngcare thongs are being developed by the makers of Havaianas – Dupe – which will be available for purchase Australia-wide in Terry White pharmacies.
Perhaps the biggest and most exciting part of Thong day, is the epic National ‘Thong-a-thon’. You have never seen any type of ‘a-thon’ like it, and Thong Day’s ‘Thong-a-thon’ is set to revolutionize the very definition of a National Fundraising Event.
Supporters all over the country, from all walks of life will be encouraged to host a ‘Thong-a-thon’ of their choosing by gathering with friends, family or co-workers and host an event of their choosing for Youngcare – the only pre-requisite: you must do it in thongs!
The type of Thong-a-thon you choose is completely up to you, limited only by your imagination. Examples can be Thong-a-thons such as a ‘Ping-pong-a-thong’ , a ‘High-tea-a-thong’, or even a ‘River-dance-a-thong’.
Youngcare’s work has only ever been made possible through the combined support of many and this is what thong day is all about. Connection with each other in fun and meaningful way to ensure that every young person is able to live a young life, regardless of their care needs.
Thong Day is Youngcare’s first attempt of achieving this on a national level, and it’s going to be big.
Stay tuned for more Thong Day news!
