Parkes gets into the Aussie spirit for Critically Injured Kids

Parkes, NSW – Wednesday 27th January, 2010 - It’s a very Australian trait to dig deep and give to those

less fortunate. Yesterday in Parkes for Australia Day, the local community fundraised for the Day of

Difference Foundation, a national children’s charity that works for critically injured kids. Chief Executive

Officer and Founder of Day of Difference Foundation, Ron Delezio addressed the Parkes community as

part of his official Australia Day Ambassador duties and delivered the Australia Day address to the

people of Parkes and handed out awards. “We really value the rural communities and many of the

critically injured children we support in Sydney hospitals are from rural areas. We see how hard it is for

these people to be so far from home, which is why the Day of Difference Foundation endeavours to

provide greater support for families of critically injured kids when they need it most.” Ron Delezio said.

Last Australia Day, Mr Delezio was sent to Armidale for ambassador duties and whilst there he and his

wife and co-founder of Day of Difference Foundation, Carolyn Martin, found time to visit children at the

Armidale Hospital and residents of integrated livings community homes for people with disabilities. One

of the ways the Day of Difference Foundation works is by celebrating difference and recognising shared

humanity through acceptance of all children (and people) with difference.
