Red Cake Day

Red Cake Day during Haemophilia Awareness Week is around the corner.

Haemophilia Awareness Week is an opportunity for Haemophilia Foundations and other organisations, as well as individuals and families to take part in a campaign and activities to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disorder and related inherited bleeding disorders throughout Australia during the week of 12 - 18 October 2014.

HFA is calling on our friends and supporters to help us celebrate Haemophilia Awareness Week by taking part in Red Cake Day!

Last year we raised over $15,000 from Red Cake Day activities and we see this as a very simple fundraising opportunity that all our friends and supporters can easily participate in. Please help us.
