MFAA Prosper : Mortgage and Finance Brief 07
Intellitrain aims to raise $10k Brisbane-based Intellitrain -- one of the MFAA's preferred training vendors -- is aiming to raise $10,000 to help the flood relief efforts in Queensland. The company is donating $50 from every Certificate IV and Diploma enrolment until the end of February. While the action at this year's Ashes test match in Sydney was not so enjoyable for Australian cricket fans, they could at least take heart from the amount of money being raised for breast cancer treatment. Over the last three years, the test has become synonymous with the McGrath Foundation, which aims to raise funds for breast cancer nurses across the country. On the third day of the match, Ladies Day, fans are encouraged to don pink clothing and sunscreen in support of the cause. Nicole Cannon, Sydney-based mortgage broker and self-confessed cricket tragic, was one of the many volunteers who gave up their time on Ladies Day to collect donations. "This is the second year we have volunteered at Ladies Day. Last year's event was so much fun, we decided we had to go out again this time," she says. "The highlight this time around was definitely the Barmy Army. They really lifted the atmosphere and added to the experience. "They also really got into the spirit of the occasion. They made their own pink T-shirts and were very generous with the amount of money they donated." Cannon founded Pink Finance in July 2009 specifically so she could combine her career in mortgage broking with her passion for charity work. The company is a strong supporter of the Foundation, and Cannon and her colleagues have pledged 10% of their commissions to the charity. The charity was founded in 2002 by cricket legend Glenn McGrath and his wife Jane, who died after a long battle with breast cancer in 2008. 'Twas the season. . . Mortgage Choice staff certainly got into the spirit of Christmas last year -- and their inflatable Santa was a seemingly popular addition to their team.
