The funds raised will be used to support locals affected by the flooding in North Queensland.
Domino’s has announced that they will hold a QLD-wide Doughraiser initiative on February 13.
The initiative will see the pizza chain donate AU$1 for every pizza sold. The money collected will then be given to Australian Red Cross’ Disaster Relief and Recovery fund, which will give further support to Red Cross’ work in domestic emergencies.
“Our fellow Queenslanders in North Queensland are doing it really tough right now and we want to throw our full support behind them now by raising vital funds for the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund,” Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO Nick Knight said.
The move was driven by the severe flooding in North Queensland that have been gravely affecting residents.
“Over the past days in Townsville alone, we have been supporting people arriving at evacuation centres and recovery hubs. Our care for people who are experiencing a stressful time in disasters like this is important in ensuring they have the help, advice and referrals they need to start their recovery,” Australian Red Cross-national emergency services manager Andrew Coghlan said.
Domino’s also mentioned that their registered charity Give for Good would also match the funds raised through the Doughraiser to the value of $25,000.
