Current fundraising activities:
- CharityBuy: Stop FOP while you shop! Doing your shopping at any hundreds of online stores through CharityBuy means a donation will go to FOP Australia from each sale. At no extra cost to you! Use it all year round for your routine shopping, or for those special Christmas presents!
- Coffee Cups: We are developing reusable FOP Australia coffee cups as our very first fundraising merchandise! Planned for launch in 2017, this will help you start every day knowing you are helping those with FOP, and helping the environment! If you know any cafes that would like to partner with us to sell our cups, encourage them to get in touch with us soon!
Our ability to support Australians with FOP and their search for a cure relies on public support and fundraising. FOP Australia has partnered with mycause to help our community members across Australia (and NZ) raise much needed funds towards research for a cure. mycause makes it easy to help in lots of ways:
- Celebrations – Encourage friends to donate to FOP Australia in lieu of presents for your birthday or anniversary by setting up a mycause page for them to use
- Events – Host a morning tea, cake stalls, or quiz night and track your donations on mycause
- Challenges – Do a fun run, swim or walk. Or do a personal challenge like no alcohol/chocolate for a month, and set up a mycause sponsorship page to make it easy for friends to support you
- Tributes – Make a tribute page in honour of the memory of a loved one.
No event is too big or too small! And we are here to help you along the way. Registering an event is easy, please visit the FOP Australia mycause page and click on the appropriate link to start. We would love to help you with this process, so please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
