In 2012 my Mother, Dawn Jakson died of a Melanoma related cancer.
In August 2014 I created a market in her memory called D.J's Market as she was affecionately known as DJ.
Mum was a wonderful caring person who loved helping others. She was my very best friend.
In August of 2015 we made our first donation to the Melanoma Institute Australia. Through our collection box. We will continue to donate annually.
We run at three different locations now. Lynbrook, Berwick and Carrum Downs. Our market is self funding and is very much community focused with emphasis on kids having fun. Our catch phrase is "we're no ordinary market"
Our stallholder fees, i feel are modest and go into the venue hire, insurance, petting zoo and any other entertainment plus prizes etc.
We are seeking help for our marketing to take D.J's to that wider audience. Bigger larger banners, signage. Branding, customised products, promotional items. My vision far expands what is finanically possible and so one of my stall holders suggested setting up page to see if we can at all get the funding we need to burst onto the market scene in a bigger bolder fashion.
The figure given was random. Truly anything would help. I want to make my mum proud can you please help us to grow?
