Do something special for some very special kids.

Every dollar you raise will help support seriously ill children and their families.

Very Special Kids relies heavily on the generous support we receive from the community.

Whether you’re taking on a personal fitness challenge, fundraising with your school or work mates or asking for gifts in lieu of presents for a wedding, birthday or any other special occasion, people like you are the reason sick kids and their families can access comfort, respite and the very best care during their most difficult times.

Celebrate a very special day

Do you have a special day coming up - a birthday, a wedding, or even Christmas?

Honour someone very special

Honour a loved one’s memory by collecting donations for Very Special Kids in lieu of flowers or gifts at their funeral or on the anniversary of their death

A tribute page is a simple yet incredibly powerful way to remember a loved one, filled with photos and special memories of the deceased and shared with friends and family members to encourage gifts and messages of support. We can also provide donation envelopes for memorial services. Thank you for choosing to honour someone special today.

Do something very special, your way
