Our new Hero Shopper site is growing in popularity, as JDRF supporters realise the benefits of a new and different way to fund type 1 diabetes research which doesn’t cost anything extra. We think the lead up to Christmas is the perfect time to find out how you can shop at your favourite brands, and automatically donate to JDRF at no additional cost to you!

Everyone loves the gift of choice!

Who doesn’t love an eGift card and having all that choice at your fingertips. Through Hero Shopper, you can choose to gift someone a Flexi eGift card. You’ll receive this straight to your email. Simply print out, and slip it into a card. This allows the recipient to choose the brand they prefer, when they’re ready to redeem.

JDRF receives 5% of the eGift card price, when you purchase the Flexi eGift card.

An eGift card is a perfect gift…

  • for the person that has everything!
  • for that person who is super fussy
  • for someone you don’t know very well yet
  • for the office or family Kris Kringle
  • when you need to travel to your Christmas destination and don’t have much room

Stocking up for the big day

Hero Shop for food The festive season always brings family and friends together, and these gatherings usually involve food and a few beverages. While some of us stockpile food, wine and other treats away for the big day, others do one huge shop in the week before (or even Christmas Eve!).

The supermarket spend sure can add up, and the great news is that you can make sure that a portion of this goes straight to type 1 diabetes research without costing you any extra!

Purchasing an Express eGift card through Hero Shopper, means you get a WISH card emailed to you immediately. WISH Card can be used at Woolworths supermarket, Caltex Woolworths petrol, Big W, BWS, Dan Murphys and more. Simply present this at the checkout and boom, you’ve created some Donation Dollars for JDRF!
