North Shore Mums Smiles2U is running an Online Auction to help them raise funds so they can continue supporting families and children during their hospital stay.
Smiles2U operates entirely on the generosity of local businesses and families who donate products, gifts or money. In order to raise more funds, they are running an Online Auction in September. This will be heavily promoted across North Shore Mums and Smiles2U via their website, e-newsletter, Facebook and Instagram over a two-week period – giving YOUR business strong exposure across both platforms and helping to create a buzz and excitement around your brand.
