The Bravery Box started as a one-time only toy drive to top up the hospital prize box and has grown so much momentum it could become something truly significant not just to children in Queensland but nationally. To be able to continue serving the rewards boxes and to grow the counselling, promotions and fundraising programs I desperately need help. Jobs available for application are listed below. If you have a very special set of skills that you think would be an AMAZING add on please throw your hat in the ring. To apply for these jobs you don’t need to be an oncology family – in fact we’re genuinely hoping that lots of non-oncology families want to get involved.

Toy Fairies collect, collate and store donations to the Bravery Box. They keep in contact with local bravery box drives, make sure the toy drives have enough marketing resources and answer any questions. When donations come in they will collate into three categories (small people, middle people, teen people). For smaller items they will gather them together in zip lock bags as ‘packs’ and make sure things like journals and colouring in are matched with the appropriate stationery so the item can be used immediately when they are received.
All books, journals and soft toys are zip locked when they are received to keep them clean.
Toy Fairies will coordinate with the Queen of the Fairies and once every 3-4 weeks take a collection up to Lady Cilento.
To be a toy fairy you will require a space in your house for up to 10 plastic storage boxes and be able to arrange for excess to be delivered to our storage unit on Brisbane Northside.

Bravery Boss Area Chiefs
Bravery Boss is an emerging funding support program we are developing to fund our programs and childhood cancer research. It is an advertising platforms where businesses who financially support the work of the bravery box through an annual fee can promote their businesses. The general public are getting more mindful of the businesses they choose. When a member of the public choose a Bravery Boss business for new work they are supporting our outcomes without actually donating money to us by ensuring that the participating businesses get value from their contributions and annually renew their support.
Bravery Boss Area Managers will approach local businesses (with a media kit to support you) to ask if they’d like to be included in the program.
We estimate that within the first year of the Bravery Boss program running we can clear over $50,000 for our programs and childhood cancer research.
You don’t need to have a business or sales background to fill this role, full training and support will be provided.
I am VERY enthused about what we can achieve when we really let this idea run with the skills of many more people than me!
