At Childhood Cancer Support we like to call our fundraisers ‘Heartfelt Heroes’
Because that’s what they are – absolute heroes!
Becoming a ‘Heartfelt Hero’ fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Support is a fantastic way to raise vital funds and awareness for a great cause, whilst having fun with your family, friends, community or co-workers. The opportunities and ideas for fundraising are limitless!
You can do anything to fundraise to help support our little champions that are affected by childhood cancer. Whether you like to run, cycle, bake or you’re courageous enough to shave your gorgeous locks – you can do anything your heart desires to be a Heartfelt Hero!
You might like to put your creativity to the test and host your very own fundraising event in support of Childhood Cancer Support. It’s a lot of fun and so rewarding knowing that your efforts will go towards a great cause.
Here’s some heroic fundraising ideas you can be a part of:
Are you taking part in a fitness event? Turn your fitness into fundraising. You can choose any event and create your own fundraising page e.g. Bridge to Brisbane, Tough Mudder
Do you love rolling up your sleeves and getting practical with your fundraising? You could do anything to provide a service to your friends, family, workmates or local community for a donation. Whether it’s mowing lawns, holding a car wash, washing the neighbours dogs or encouraging your kids to do extra chores for donations. You can go above the call of duty and get busy for a very worthy cause!
A special way to give tribute to a loved one is to raise money in memory. You can share your fundraising page at memorial services or other events to make it easy for your attendees to contribute.
Show solidarity with children battling cancer by shaving your head. Get creative, show your personality and get attention for your fundraising initiative. You might like to just get a trim of your long locks, colour your hair, go short and get a message shaved in your scalp or go complete cleanskin.
Are you a bit of a whisk taker and love baking for a good cause? Tie up your apron strings, pull out those much-loved recipes and get baking! You can organise anything as simple as a workplace bake sale or morning tea, to an elaborate bake-off competition or fancy high tea! And of course the calories don't count when it's for a good cause, right?
What’s your one weakness? Is it chocolate, coffee, alcohol or anything sugary? Testing your willpower and taking a break from your vice can help bring a dose of happiness to children facing the toughest of challenges.
Have you got an idea for your own fundraiser? It might be a Golf Day, Bike Ride or Music Concert. You can set up a fundraising page for your event, customise the look and feel of your page and ask for donations far and wide!
