Myer has announced that the 2012 Myer ‘Spirit of Christmas’ CD raised more than $251,000 for The Salvation Army – the most funds raised from the CD since 2005. Since its inception, the sale of the annual ‘Spirit of Christmas’ CD has raised over $7 million for charity.
All funds raised for The Salvation Army are donated to its children and youth programs across Australia. Myer CEO Bernie Brookes is delighted to continue to support The Salvation Army through the sale of the CD each year. ‘The Myer ‘Spirit of Christmas’ CD is an integral part of the Myer Christmas campaign and we are very proud to support such a worthy organisation. We truly value our ongoing relationship with The Salvation Army and are pleased to continue to support their invaluable work with children and youth throughout the community,’ Mr Brookes said.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Myer ‘Spirit of Christmas’ CD. The Salvation Army and Myer are hoping to raise even more this year to support the work of the Salvos.
Look out in November for news about its production, the artists that will be featured and information about where the CD will be available to buy.
