Thank you for taking the first step to becoming a Difference Maker!

With your help we can continue to fund cutting-edge equipment, vital research and on the ground support for kids with all illnesses, injuries and conditions, throughout Queensland and northern New South Wales.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to fundraising - the only limit is your imagination.  

What will you do to make a difference?

Challenge yourself

From running a marathon to shaving your head, giving up chocolate or trying something new, challenging yourself is a fun and exciting way to fundraise. Get out of your comfort zone and ask your friends, families and community to support you to hit your goal.

At school

From fun runs to bake sales, sponsored swims to read-a-thons there are so many ways you can get your school community involved in fundraising for sick kids. It’s a wonderful way to teach kids the importance of giving back and creating a real school community goal. 

In your workplace

Hosting an event, making up a team or challenging a colleague are all ways you can make a difference to sick kids in your workplace.   If you already have an event planned, why not add a fundraising element to it via a raffle, auction, or sales.

In celebration

Donations in lieu of a gift can be a wonderful and rewarding way to celebrate that special occasion. Why not ask your guests to donate what they would have spent on a gift. You can do this at the event or via a personal fundraising page.

In memory

There are many ways you can celebrate the life of a loved one and remember them.  Whether it's setting up an online tribute, organising a group collection in lieu of flowers or giving a one-off personal donation.  Each gift in their memory gives hope to other sick kids and their families. 

In your community

From lemonade stands and bake sales to bridge climbs and treks, anything goes.  Why not get your friends, family, and community involved and host an event, have a girls night in, kick a habit, have a crazy hair day, hold a garage sale, face your fears or hold a raffle…
