SAHMRI’s Window of Hope campaign gives you the chance to participate in impacting lives for the better. By sponsoring a window, you have a virtual piece of the iconic Cheese Grater building on North Terrace.
The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute headquarters has an epic total of 15,000 triangular windows. This makes for a spectacular visage and represents its mission, but none of the life-saving research happening inside is possible without the generous support of those on the outside looking in.
Proceeds from the Windows of Hope goes directly to funding the life-saving medical research like the project that saved the life of cancer survivor, Michelle Nightingale.
“I was diagnosed with a very rare strain of leukaemia called acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APML) and there were no answers,” she recalls.
“I didn’t know this at the time, but it was a SAHMRI researcher that wrote the new treatment protocol for APML. It was basically a cure and without it, I wouldn’t be here.”Michelle Nightingale
The windows say a lot about the research institute. They’re not just aesthetic; they represent SAHMRI’s approach and purpose.
When our researchers look out those windows, they see suburbs, homes and people. It’s a constant reminder of why their work matters or who they’re doing it for. The view goes both ways. When the community looks in, they see the exciting progress that SAHMRI researchers are making every day. And they see hope for a happier, healthier future for the people we love.
Window sponsorship is easy and rewarding.
Sponsorship starts from just $20 a month.
How it works:
- Choose your virtual window
- Write your personal message to display on your virtual window
- See your window online, demonstrating your hope for a happier, healthier future
- Share it with friends and family
- You’ll receive a special thank you for your commitment, plus regular updates
- SAHMRI will invite you to unique events to learn more about the work you are helping to fund
“When I look through the windows of SAHMRI, I see hope,” says Michelle. “Hope for so many people who all of a sudden have lost control over their lives, this is where control can potentially be found again.”
