Nova's Bid to help Sick Kids

Ash, Kip & Luttsy with Susie O'Neill are helping raise money for sick kids

We're teaming up to raise much needed funds for the Children's Hospital Foundation to help sick and critically injured kids in the lead-up to the Channel Nine Telethon on November 17.

The Children's Hospital Foundation needs support to fund crucial medical equipment and life-changing research into childhood illness and injury. 

We wanted to help.

To do our part, we've initiated Nova's Bid to Help Sick Kids. It's a silent auction where you can bid (and donate!) on once-in-a-lifetime experiences, cars, holidays, even a year of free ice-cream, and so much more. 

All funds raised will go to the Foundation, whose primary aim is to make the kids laugh, smile, get better and go home sooner. 

You can bid on a fishing trip for you and three mates with Ash, a swimming lesson with Susie, a XXXX Brewery with Luttsy, and a cooking lesson with Kip.

We launched Nova's Bid to Help Sick Kids at Queensland Children's Hospital on October 29.

We interviewed some of the families who have stayed at the Queensland Children's Hospital, including Henry and his mum Bridget. 

Henry was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was six, and is now 13 and doing well. 

Ash heard their story. 

Kip sat down with Kimberley, mum of four-year-old Lilly who was diagnosed with parechovirus as a newborn. 

Listen to the full chat below.

Susie spoke with Louise, whose fourth child Charli has a rare genetic condition called Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia Type 1b. She is one of only six children in the world with this condition, and the only one in Australia. 

Two-year-old Charli is non-verbal but speaks a million words with her eyes.
