Would you like to be a fundraising hero for First Light?

Without the tremendous support of our fundraising heroes we would not be able to continue our work to bring hope, community and understanding to the lives of widowed people in Australia. Fundraising events also help to raise awareness of our organisation – you might just help introduce us to someone who has been wanting to find fellow widowed people.

There are many ways you can fundraise for us; some ideas include:

  • hosting a morning tea at your home or workplace
  • a breakfast or barbecue with your family and friends
  • or taking on the challenge of a fun run.

We encourage our members to incorporate the memory of their loved one into their fundraising events.  For example, if you're hosting a morning tea, you could set up a table with a large jar or bowl,  pen and paper and ask your family and friends to write down one of their favourite stories about your spouse so these treasured memories aren't lost. Or if you're running in a fun run, why not get a shirt printed with their photo on it.  

Of course, you may have something more creative in mind and we’d love to hear about it.

One of the easiest ways to fundraise for First Light is to use create an event with Everyday Hero and choose us as your charity. However there are many other ways to fundraise and we're happy to work with you and assist you in any way we can.
