The Common Good


Throughout December, you can give the gift of health by purchasing a $2 greeting card from your local TerryWhite Chemmart, with all proceeds going directly to The Common Good’s medical research projects.

About The Common Good

The Common Good allows the future of medical research to be put into the hands of those who will benefit most – all of us.

90% of Australians will be faced with chronic disease in our lifetime1. We can support brilliant young researchers who are dedicating their lives to tackle heart disease, lung disease, dementia, arthritis, and stomach disease. The only thing that stops them from achieving success quickly is the lack of ongoing funding.

Purchase your $2 Greeting card in store today and your donation will go directly to The Common Good to improve health outcomes and patient quality of life. To donate directly to The Common Good, follow the link below.

About The Card

The card features an artwork called ‘Heart in hand’. It has been generously donated by internationally-renowned artist Andrew Hewkin, a surrealist whose work has been commissioned by celebrities such as Michael Caine, Peter Ustinov, HRH Princess Margaret and Brian May from Queen. Mr. Hewkin has himself experienced the life-saving work of one of the doctors working with The Common Good.

A few years ago, he suffered a very serious liver condition and Dr Tony Rahman, who is now undertaking research into liver and gut disease as part of The Common Good, was a key member of his medical team.

“I feel like he has given me a new lease on life and I feel honoured to now be in a position where I can pay that forward, and help others,” Mr. Hewkin said.

“I completed the painting after my mother passed away from cancer and it is reflective of the fact that, in life, we all lose people who are dear to us, but we can always keep their memories in our hearts.”
