Bridgestone stores across Australia to donate gold coins for a cure 

Bridgestone stores across Australia are to donate $2 from every tyre sold over three days in March to the Leukaemia Foundation as part of the company's fundraising for this year’s World’s Greatest Shave

Bridgestone stores across Australia are to donate $2 from every tyre sold over three days in March to the Leukaemia Foundation.

The tyre offer will run from March 15-17 as part of Bridgestone’s fundraising for this year’s World’s Greatest Shave. All Bridgestone Select, Service Centre and Tyre Centre stores will be participating nation-wide.

With the support of communities across Australia, the tyre offer raised $44,000 for the World’s Greatest Shave in 2016 and helped fund patient transport vehicles, research and patient accommodation.

Bridgestone Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Andrew Moffatt said the seemingly small donations would go a long way to caring for the wellbeing of people with blood cancer and their families.

“At Bridgestone, we are proud to once again be raising funds for the World’s Greatest Shave and we hope the Australian public will rally around us in support of the Leukaemia foundation’s vital work,” said Mr Moffatt.

“If you are in the market for new tyres, we encourage you to visit a Bridgestone retail store on March 15, 16 or 17 to help support this important cause.

“We’re aiming to surpass last year’s fundraising total and with the assistance of local communities right across Australia, I’m confident we will achieve that.”

A number of Bridgestone stores have also chosen to be brave and shave – pulling out their hair clippers and firing up their barbeques in March to host shave events and sausage sizzles.

The World’s Greatest Shave tyre offer is valid for purchases of all passenger, SUV and light truck tyres.

Bridgestone Australia has been a proud supporter of the Leukaemia Foundation for the past 30 years – providing Patient Transport Vehicles, funding vital research, assisting with patient accommodation and supporting the organisation’s various initiatives.
