In Memory

Gifts made in memory of a loved one are a special way to honour the deceased and leave a lasting legacy that will make a difference to the lives of many other families.

A dedicated fundraising page is a simple yet incredibly powerful tribute to loved one, which can be created 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.

DIY Fundraising

There are endless ways that you can raise funds to help families during the most difficult time in their lives. Whether it’s an athletic challenge, a special occasion, or your own unique creation, you can make a big difference the lives of children with life-threatening conditions and their parents and siblings. The sky is the limit!

Once you’ve got an idea in mind, share it so that your friends and family and the Very Special Kids community can rally behind you! Whether you need an emotive video to share our story, balloons, a way to seamlessly collect funds on the day/night of you event – Very Special Kids loves to support those who support us!
