The Heart Foundation will not run the Big Heart Appeal doorknock in its traditional format in 2018.
Big heart Appeal 2018
The Heart Foundation is incredibly grateful to the thousands of dedicated doorknockers who collect donations each September for the Big Heart Appeal.
But in a 2017 survey, doorknockers told us that doorknocking had become challenging and less enjoyable.
The survey found that:
Apartments and houses have become less accessible
People are often not at home
Some people don't like to answer the door
Many people no longer have cash available
People are less enthusiastic to give.
This is why the Heart Foundation will not run the Big Heart Appeal doorknock in its traditional format in 2018.
Hence, there will not be a call out for doorknock volunteers this year.
Instead, the Heart Foundation will focus on developing more exciting and inviting ways to keep our doorknocker community involved.
These opportunities will better reflect doorknockers interests and abilities.
This could include helping the Heart Foundation with:
Community fundraising activities, like morning teas, bake-offs, walk-a-thons
Talking to school and local community groups
Sharing healthier living and nutrition messages with families and friends
Assisting at local events
Assisting in one of our local offices.
