On Friday last week I was a Convict for a Cause.

I broadcast my 98.5 Sonshine FM radio programme from Karrinyup Shopping Centre where I was asking people to donate towards Cystic Fibrosis WA so that I could be released. I was joined by fellow announcer Tim Long and a number of guests. Check out the video to see some of the fun we had for a serious cause.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life threatening, recessive genetic condition affecting Australian children and is the second most common life-shortening, childhood onset inherited disorder in the United States. For such a serious condition it really doesn’t get a lot of attention.

What can you do to support families who are battling CF?

It’s not too late to donate. Simply click here, choose how much you’d like to give, then fill in your relevant details.

Donations can be accepted on Visa or MasterCard. Please keep in mind that the amounts are in Australian Dollars and of course the tax deductibility is only available in Australia. If you’re not in Australia and you’d like to work out the exchange rate you can work it out through this currency converter.

Thank you for your help with this. Together we can make a very big difference for families who can really do with our support and encouragement.
