World Cancer Day is a global initiative held every February 4th to raise awareness of the global impact of cancer, improve education and work together to ensure as many preventable cancer deaths are saved, and access to treatment is equitable for all.
In 2024, Ticketmaster International will be working closely with local charities across the globe this World Cancer Day to raise awareness and encourage our staff, clients, and consumers to join together and get behind the cause.
Locally, we will be working closely with Cancer Council.
Almost every single Australian will be impacted by cancer at one point in their lives, whether it be personally, or through friends, family or even colleagues.
It is estimated that over 160,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year, and it is the leading cause of death in Australia. World Cancer Day is one initiative that unites the entire world to tackle the global cancer epidemic.
Ticketmaster offices across Australia will be hosting a morning tea in support of World Cancer Day, encouraging staff to attend, with a gold coin donation from all attendees.
During the month of February, we will be running a donation upsell across all events on Ticketmaster Australia, with the hope of raising funds for our local cancer charities. Over this period, we will be offering ticket purchasers an option to donate $1.99 alongside their ticket purchase. All proceeds will be going directly to Cancer Council, or Cancer Society, depending on your location.
We want to thank everyone who has joined in on our initiative to raise awareness and funds for the global issue of cancer.
