Ovarian Cancer Australia


Phoenix proudly joined forces with Ovarian Cancer Australia in February 2013 and since then Phoenix and our Traders have collectively raised over AU$84,000 to support the education of Australian women about the early detection of ovarian cancer. That’s a lot of AWARENESS!

Ovarian Cancer Australia was founded by people directly affected by ovarian cancer, who wanted to raise awareness of the disease and support those who had been affected. This group included Nicole Livingstone OAM and her sister, Karen, who lost their mother and aunt to the disease; Simon Lee, whose wife, Sheila, had been the first Australian ovarian cancer campaigner prior to her death in 2001; actress and comedian Lynda Gibson, who was diagnosed in 2000 and subsequently lost her battle in 2004, and journalist Tracey Curro, whose mother died from ovarian cancer.

Afternoon Teal Fundraising

To contribute towards this remarkable result, Phoenix Traders sold 16,368 special, limited edition bookmarks, which featured artwork by Laura Stone, primarily at morning or ‘Afternoon Teal’ eventsTraders also donated a percentage of their sales by combining ‘Afternoon Teals’ with their other Phoenix sales activities.

Charity Christmas Cards

Every year, we donate 2¢ to charity for every Charity Christmas Card we sell, with 100% of that amount being donated to charity. 

To date, we have raised a total of AU$97,662 through our Christmas card fundraising, of which a significant proportion has been donated to Ovarian Cancer Australia.
