2022 Lexus Owner's Gift Recipient
The Lexus of Brisbane Group is proud to announce that the recipient of the 2022 Lexus Owner's Gift is the Leukaemia Foundation.
About the Leukaemia Foundation
The Leukaemia Foundation is the Australian charity stopping blood cancer from wrecking lives.
Everyday 50 Australian's are diagnosed with blood cancer and more than 110,000 Australians are today living with its devastating impact.
This is predicted to rise to 275,000 by 2035*.
Blood cancer is the second highest cause of cancer related death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer and melanoma combined.
The Leukaemia Foundation offers expert support, funds leading-edge research and campaigns to make change for people with any type of blood cancer, including leukaemia.
Your blood is a remarkable thing. It keeps you alive by giving your body what it needs, taking away what it doesn’t and fighting off infection.

How your gift will help
It is truly the gift that keeps on giving! By installing solar panels on the Leukaemia Foundation's Fortitude Valley head office, the Lexus Owner's Gift will generated over $150,000 in cost savings, as well as having a positive impact on the environment by reducing carbon emissions of over 700 tonnes. Many Australians require immediate treatment after a blood cancer diagnosis, and for regional families – this means uprooting their lives and moving away from home to survive.
In 2020/21, 300 Queensland families needed access to a safe home-away-from-home at the Leukaemia Foundation Accommodation so they could receive blood cancer treatment. The Leukaemia Foundation were able to provide 19,559 nights of accommodation to families in need. The energy cost savings, generated by your gift, will help provide this urgent accommodation close to life-saving treatment to more people as well as continue to fund leading edge research for years to come.
We encourage you to find out more about the different ways that the Leukaemia Foundation helps supports families, thanks to the support from the Lexus Owner’s Gift by visiting leukaemia.org.au/support or calling 1800 629 429 to speak to a Blood Cancer Support Coordinator.
We thank you, our Lexus Owners for your contribution and support. You have made this gift possible.
The Leukaemia Foundation would like to express its sincere appreciation for your generous donation, and the gift that will keep on giving.
