September 26th, 2008
All the puppies have been sold! The campaign has raised a total of $4466 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Stay tuned to find out a bit about the puppies and their new homes.
To raise money for Breast Cancer research, six respected design firms and one Brisbane school have created eight very different looking plastic puppies.
Sponsored by ECC Lighting + Furniture the puppy4life campaign set the task for the different groups to transform their white Magis Puppies into new individual creations.
On display at the ECC showroom during Brisbane Indesign, the puppies are now up for Auction on eBay. These are one-off designer pieces and all proceeds will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
You can also purchase limited edition Pink Puppies from ECC Lighting + Furniture, with all profits donated to the NBCF. Contact the Brisbane showroom firstname.lastname@example.org
