Streets is spreading happiness this International Ice Cream Day


Gaytime and bubble O'Bill celebrating International Ice Cream Day

The last 18 months have been tough, but they’ve also uncovered Australia’s heroes – the people who did groceries for their isolated neighbours, the volunteers who worked tirelessly during the catastrophic floods, the medical professionals that have helped fight the pandemic, the many helping hands at community centres, and the list goes on.

“Australians have well and truly lived up to their reputation of having one another’s back and we think that calls for a celebration,” said Annie Lucchitti, Streets Marketing Manager.

So, this International Ice Cream Day, Streets are giving away a year’s worth of ice cream to 10 people. That’s right, a whole year’s supply of Streets favourites including Paddle Pop, Golden Gaytime, Splice and Calippo!

What’s the catch? There isn’t one. This is all part of Streets’ mission to help build a happier, more connected Australian community, one street at a time.

Ms Lucchitti said, “Helping out and giving back to the community doesn’t just make others happy; it makes you feel good too.”

“Streets has been spreading happiness and bringing Australians together for over 100 years. This legacy dates all the way back to our founder Ted Street and his wife Daisy who devoted their life to supporting communities and bringing them together by funding local pools, tennis courts and nursing homes.

“We’ve tried to continue this legacy through our support for local surf lifesaving clubs and initiatives like Bush to Beach. We also recently partnered with WIRES to help protect and regenerate Australia’s native wildlife.

“Now we want to celebrate even more heroes that are giving back to their communities. So, we’re calling on Aussies to nominate their local hero to go into the running to win a year’s supply of ice cream – for them and you!”

To enter, simply share a post on your Facebook or Instagram and tell us in 25 words or less why you're nominating this hero. Make sure you use #HappyHero and tag Streets Ice Cream Australia Facebook or Instagram page.

The competition launches on International Ice Cream Day, Sunday 18th July, and runs for a week. Full competition details can be found on Streets’ Facebook and Instagram pages.
