The 2016 CFA Community Fundraising Diary is now available to order for only $20 from the emeraldcfadiary.org.website.

By Klaus Brodeck

The diary was successfully launched last year, reaching thousands of people far and wide across the state and beyond.  Many brigades took advantage of the combined fundraising and community safety opportunities that the diary offered and are looking to repeat this success again with the 2016 edition.

Capitalising on the popular features of the 2015 diary, enhancements for the 2016 edition include an all-colour introduction section and plenty more action photos. The premium leather look and feel remains as well as the relevant, yet refreshed, monthly safety messages.

To make it easier for brigades, the emeraldcfadiary.org website was set up for all people, community, businesses and CFA members, to order the diaries. They then can nominate the brigade they wish to support and $5 will be reimbursed back to the brigade selected for every diary sold.

Brigades are encouraged to share this initiative with their local communities via several social media platforms to increase reach. As we arrange the delivery of the diaries, brigades have the ability to sell diaries to their communities without ever having to touch a diary themselves, making fundraising very easy. 

Tools available on the website put brigades in the driver’s seat, enabling them to spread the word as much or as little as they like. Traditional methods, such as markets and school fetes are also encouraged to ensure broader areas of the community are also reached and complement the social media push.

Quantities are limited so all orders are encouraged to be placed as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
