27 December 2016 – Launched
The Million Dollar Challenge was launched, with the creation of our social media pages, logo design and of course, the purchase of our Cherry Ripe.
28 December 2016 – Trade 1
The first trade came from a friend of Matt’s named Chris, who swapped his box of Celebrations for our Cherry Ripe. (We hope you enjoyed it Chris!)
5 January 2017 – Trade 2
Trade number two saw us receiving five ‘Crowded House’ Albums from local politician William Owen-Jones, who’d recently upgraded and loved our cause!
17 January 2017 – Trade 3
Paula, a die hard fan of Crowded House, got in touch and offered us her $50 Car Detailing Voucher.
15 February 2017 – Trade 4
After learning about Helensvale Primary School’s refurbished bikes program, we met with school chaplain Long Bradley and Michael Shambrook, the head master, to swap our voucher for their bright pink cruiser push bike.
1 March 2017 – Trade 5
After featuring on Channel 7’s Sunrise, we received an offer from Quantility Group on the Gold Coast, who offered us their outdoor pool table for our pretty pink push bike. Getting it home was a struggle! But we saw this as a large step in our timeline.
5 May 2017 – Addition to our pool table
After a long wait for approvals and arranging meetings, we received a fantastic donation from The Star Hotel & Casino on the Gold Coast. We were given a 2 night stay in a Superior Deluxe room with buffet breakfast and a $250 gift card to spend within the hotel.
