Game Changers: Media Icon Ita Buttrose’s Amazing Charity Work

Game Changers: Media Icon Ita Buttrose's Amazing Charity Work

Ita Buttrose is without doubt a Game Changer.

Two of Ita’s most passionate causes are her role as patron of The Priceline Sisterhood Foundation, a charity inspired by Sir Bob Geldof’s speech at a Priceline conference and Alzheimer’s Australia for which she is a National Ambassador.

Since the Sisterhood began in 2011, it’s raised more than $3 million for its five partners –– Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia (PANDA), Children First Foundation, Look Good Feel Better, Hear To Listen and Alzheimer’s Australia. 

The latter is particularly dear to Ita’s heart; she watched her beloved father Charles, a former editor of the Daily Mirror in Sydney, succumb to the heart-breaking effects of vascular dementia.
