Be Brave:

If you're stuck at home there’s no better time to make that daring change you’ve been meaning to do for years. Be brave and shave your head, wax or colour your hair all the while raising vital funds for our patients and their families. It’s easy to set up your page and set the date for the big chop here.

At Work... from Home!

Working from home? Donate your commute! Why not give the weekly cost of your usual bus fare, train, ferry ticket or petrol to help support our patients and their families? You can work from home, knowing that your usual commuting fare is being used to help those most vulnerable. Why not challenge your work mates to donate theirs too?

At School... from Home!

Home-schooling right now? Give the kids (and yourself) a break and get them do chores for a gold coin donation – it will soon add up to make a difference. They can wash the car, walk the dog or tidy their room. Anything is better than maths, right kids?

At Home:

Right now everything is virtual. But you can still get together on Zoom or Houseparty with your friends – host a trivia night, a girls night in or a watch party with your favourite movie – ask your friends for a donation to join. You’ll feel good while doing good.

You can set up and customise you online fundraising page here and share with all your family and friends. Want to do your own event? Tell us more here.
