Each year, the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation (CCAF) issue grants to charities nominated by our employees. It’s all in the spirit of creating moments of happiness and possibilities!

CCAF Employee Choice Grant ArtEx Program

Meet 2018 recipient: Sydney Children’s Hospital’s ‘ArtEx Program’ – nominated by John Humphreys, State Manager, NSW.

 

The philosophy behind the ArtEx Program is "Art celebrating life", and it gives patients and the broader Hospital community a vibrant, inspiring and colourful window to creative works that motivate, inform and entertain.

 

When John found out about the grant he said; “when your nominated charity is successful in receiving a donation, it gives you a good sense of purpose and a nice feeling. I was invited to see the artworks that were produced because of this funding and it was really special. 

 

“The ArtEx program is a real form of therapy, and the programs are a really important part of rehabilitation for children in hospital. The team and kids at the hospital were very thankful for this donation which purchased equipment and funds teaching and facilities.

 

“There is no better feeling than helping someone or giving something for somebody else, and it makes you feel proud of yourself and your company you work for."
