“IT’S a big step forward for Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation and I mean big,” Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation CEO, Allan Turner said during the launch of the Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation truck curtain billboard last week.

The Hicks Transport Group truck, which has been fitted with a curtain containing the all-important message of organ and tissue donation through Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation, was brought about thanks to a $5,000 donation from Fairleys SUPA IGA Community Fund Grants program and a discounted cost passed on for the curtain.

Allan said, “We are very proud to have Hicks’ and IGA on board and offering their support.

“This is unique and a first of its kind in the way of promoting organ and tissue donation. You can’t miss it.

“This truck will travel over 200,000km per year, which when you add up the number of eyes that will see this truck per day, would run into the thousands and then into millions of eyes per year.”

Fairleys SUPA IGA General Manager, Craig Bramley said, “IGA is very supportive in all aspects of Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation and have been involved with them many times in the past.

“Organ and tissue donation is an important topic to draw attention to and this truck is a great way for that to be done.”
