    Default Good Friday Appeal - RCHM

    Is this appeal AUS wide or is it just Vic? Does anyone outside of Victoria donate?

    I am arguing wihth my husband about it - I am sure he is wrong.

    I thought just Victoria. It's a Victorian hospital so I don't get why other states would donate.

    I'd say it would just be Vic because the money goes to the RCH Melbourne. Other states would support their own childrens' hospitals.

    True, but ppl travel from all over AUS and worldwide to get treatment at RCHM - thats why I was wondering.

    They raise alot of money for Victoria only

    i think its just a vic only thing, like WA have telethon for PMH, but I will donate to the RCHM one anyway even though im from WA ( like im sure others will ) because often kids from here are flown over there if treatment isnt available here, I know we dont have a Intesinal failure unit here and they have said that she will go to melbourne at some point to RCH
