Ampol to Support Youth Mental Health With the Sebastian Foundation Campaign

Sydney – Wednesday 1 March 

Ampol has unveiled its March national retail network campaign to raise funds for The Sebastian Foundation and their mission to support young Australians' mental health.

With thanks to our generous supply partners, from 1 March to 4 April 2023, 10 cents from every purchase of a Herbert Adams Cream Cheese and Spinach Roll, Golden Gaytime (100mL-107mL range), Smith's Crinkle Chips (80g-90g range), Cadbury Family Blocks (170g-190g range) and Eclipse Mints (40g range) at participating Ampol Foodary and Ampol Woolworths MetroGo stores will be donated to The Sebastian Foundation.

50 cents from all Fuse Audio products purchased will also be donated to The Sebastian Foundation plus customers can choose to donate at the register or online.

For the second consecutive year, all money raised will go directly to The Sebastian Foundation's Open Parachute initiative, an in-school mental health program mapped to curriculum and the only of its kind to regularly use peer-to-peer methods to help educate kids with coping mechanisms addressing the challenges of adolescence, such as bullying, anxiety, depression, gender issues and social media, among others.

Ampol Executive General Manager, Retail Australia, Kate Thomson said Ampol is excited to continue to make a difference for The Sebastian Foundation through its national retail network.

"With the support of our customers, last year we proudly raised over $258,000 for The Sebastian Foundation, which allowed for 9000 young Australians through 17 schools to participate in the Open Parachute Program," Thomson said.

"Ampol is committed to driving positive change in our society and through the Ampol Foundation we support programs and organisations aimed at improving community wellbeing. We're looking forward to raising funds once again for young Australians in need."

Co-founder of The Sebastian Foundation Guy Sebastian thanked Ampol, its staff and customers for their ongoing support.

"My wife Jules and I formed the Sebastian Foundation 10 years ago to help young Australians in the youth mental health space," Sebastian said.

"We're proud of the work we do, and we're excited that Ampol are once again supporting us in 2023 to raise much needed funds.

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you from The Sebastian Foundation to Ampol and everyone who donates. We couldn't help young Australians overcome mental health challenges without your help."
