Donate in Celebration

A simple way to make any occasion extra special.

Raise funds to help those impacted by service by inviting friends and family to donate in lieu of a birthday or wedding presents. Celebrate your big day with the best gift you could receive – knowing you created change. By forgoing your gift, you will provide support to those who need it. When they need it most.

Make your day extra-special

The nature of being in the Defence Force sometimes means time away from home and it can be difficult missing the special moments. Set up a donation page for your special day, instead of asking for gifts, and help support those who may have missed out on those moments

Give the gift of hope

Give the gift of hope today. Don't know what to buy someone for their birthday, or Christmas? Why not make a donation in their name, in lieu of giving a present to help save lives.
