Worldwide Online raises $15k for teens in trouble

The franchise group donates 10c from each Christmas card it sells through its annual design and print competition.

Joanne Hobbs, executive director of Teen Challenge, which provides support to young people in difficult, described Worldwide as a “tremendous supporter”.

“Worldwide’s donation will help us provide more assistance to young people suffering from the effects of homelessness and drug dependency, and associated life-controlling problems such as abuse and mental health problems,” she said.

The cards, which are either digitally printed within a franchise or produced at the company’s offset hub in Western Australia, are also part a national graphic design competition.

Prizes this year include a MacBook Air for best design and an 8GB iPod touch and a $100 Apple voucher for runners-up.

“Our annual card and calendar campaign has become a Christmas tradition,” said Worldwide Online’s national sales and marketing manager, Jan Timms.

“We’re committed to helping make a difference to our community and this has proved to be a great way to raise essential funds.”
