Give back this holiday season through the Paypal Giving Fund

On December 3, PayPal announced their exciting new #GivingTuesday campaign, giving all not-for-profit organisations and charities the chance to receive extra funds throughout the holiday season!

Donors simply need to make a donation through the PayPal Giving Fund and PayPal will match 10% of that donation for the chosen charity.

That means, if you make a $100 donation to CLCRF, the Foundation will actually receive $110! This is a wonderful way for our supporters to help us raise extra funds for childhood cancer research during the season of giving.

The PayPal Giving fund allows for secure online donations with no fees for organisations or individual donors, meaning you can rest assured that 100% of the funds will be distributed directly to the Foundation.

Donations will be matched on a first come, first served basis until December 31 or until a $50,000 donation cap has been reached. So be sure to make the most of this generous offer while it lasts and help support childhood cancer research.

Donate through the PayPal Giving Fund now!

Help us make a difference this Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that started in 2012 as a way to bring people together to give back to organisations that are making a difference in the community. This year, Giving Tuesday will take place on December 3 and we encourage everyone to help us celebrate through a 24-hour fundraising challenge!

On the day, we ask all of our supporters to consider making a donation to CLCRF, to help us achieve a fundraising goal of $2,000 and prove what a difference a day can make.

So, mark Tuesday 3 December on your calendar and spread the word to your family and friends to come together for a good cause. Every donation counts, no matter how big or small!

A donation to CLCRF can help to make a difference in the lives of children who face a cancer diagnosis, with funds going towards finding better treatments that are more effective and less invasive.

You can make a donation towards CLCRF through our online donation form. Can’t wait for Giving Tuesday? Make your donation today and include Giving Tuesday in the comments so we know what inspired you to donate!

Giving Tuesday can be the perfect opportunity for you to make the most of our CLCRF Christmas bauble offer.

Decorate your Christmas Tree with a Donation Bauble!

Not sure what to get your loved ones for Christmas? Or maybe you want to do something a little more meaningful this year? Simply make a donation to CLCRF during Christmas-time and we will send you a special little bauble to give as a gift or hang on your tree!

All you need to do is make a donation online and mention in the comments that you would like to turn your donation into a bauble. We will then send it to you along with your receipt – it really is that easy!

This idea comes from last year’s Christmas Appeal with Karalee on Preston where we took the humble Christmas ornament to the next level in a unique incentive for patrons to donate. Visitors to Karalee on Preston had the opportunity to purchase a bauble over the bar for any donation amount they chose and place it on the pub’s beautiful tree.

We are so excited to announce that we will be collaborating with Karalee on Preston again this year, with their Christmas tree set to go up this week! So head on down to the award-winning pub, try their delicious food, grab yourself a drink and help decorate their Christmas tree with a donation!

At CLCRF, our goal is to continue to raise funds for childhood cancer research in order to find more effective treatments for young children so they can enjoy a better quality of life and be reunited with their families sooner. By helping to fund this important research, a CLCRF bauble makes for a truly special Christmas gift.

Donate online and request your bauble today.

A beautiful evening at the 2019 Family Night Out

What started out as an incredibly hot day, turned into a beautiful evening when families and friends came together for the 2019 Family Night Out at Gloucester Park on Saturday, November 9.

The exceptional Perth Symphony Orchestra had everyone singing along and showing off their best dance moves as they performed two sets of their family favourites. There were lots of Disney tunes for the kids and later in the evening mums and dads got to enjoy some current and classic hits from Katy Perry, Smashing Pumpkins, and Ed Sheeran, just to name a few!

Supporting the Perth Symphony Orchestra was the incredibly talented local artist JAX. Her powerhouse vocals were a great indication of the level of talent and entertainment attendees were to expect throughout the night.

Children had the choice of a variety of fun activities to stay entertained all afternoon. There was face-painting, bouncy castles, a cuddly animal farm, giant games, bubbles, and even a slip n slide!

“We absolutely had the best time,” said one attendee. “We couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces.”

The Family Night Out was all about bridging the gap between cancer research and the community. Kerrin Hampson, whose son underwent treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia when he was just 15-months-old, shared her emotional story with attendees and highlighted the need to continue raising awareness and funds for childhood cancer research.

“This event was the biggest CLCRF have organised and it certainly brought our community together,” said CEO Andrea Alexander.

It’s no surprise that events like these cannot happen without a lot of help and we would like to send our deepest thanks to our wonderful volunteers!

“The CLCRF volunteers did an amazing job in setting up, manning the merchandise tent, kids activities and packing everything away and cleaning up at the end of the night. We could not have done it without them,” Andrea expressed.

“A HUGE thank you to Kylie Dalton who, through sheer determination and negotiation skills, put this event together.”

We would like to thank everyone who came along to this year’s Family Night Out and we hope to see you all again at our next one in 2021!

Kerrin to Shave her Head for Childhood Cancer Research!

In an effort to raise money for the important research into childhood cancer, the amazing Kerrin Hampson is shaving her head… again! Kerrin announced the news at the CLCRF Family Night Out which took place on Saturday, November 9.

Kerrin is no stranger to getting rid of her locks to raise funds for childhood cancer. In 2013, she shaved her head for the first time after her son Marley finished his treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Then again in November 2017 she got rid of around 30cm of hair to support Finlay Higgs, who was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a rare liver cancer.

Even after Marley finished his treatment, Kerrin and her family have remained involved in raising awareness and funds for research into childhood cancer, with the hope that one day a cure will be found.

We would like to thank Kerrin for her ongoing support of the Foundation and we hope to see her smash her fundraising goal of $1000, with the help of our generous supporters!

If you would like to support Kerrin and the very worthwhile cause, simply make a donation through her Facebook fundraiser page.

The Gift of Giving through Everyday Hero

For many of us, it can be a real struggle not just to decide what we want for our birthday, but what we actually need. Why not use the occasion as an opportunity to do something more meaningful? This is exactly what Natalie and Andy Lukas have done by asking their family and friends to give the gift of giving.

With his 40th birthday coming up, Andy communicated to his wife Natalie that he wanted to do something that involved giving, rather than receiving. “He suggested cooking a big BBQ for the homeless but I thought something that provided for more than a day’s help was possibly more satisfying,” said Natalie.

Natalie decided to set up a surprise Everyday Hero page for her husband in support of CLCRF. The choice to support CLCRF stemmed from their own personal reasons. “Andy and I had a scare with our second child, Charlie, earlier this year when he suddenly developed a blood disorder,” explained Natalie.

“We were so grateful to find out he was not in fact diagnosed with leukaemia as we had anticipated from the initial results. This inspired me to help support and raise awareness of the work of Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation.”

Natalie and Andy are aware of the suffering that those battling blood cancers have to endure after Andy’s mum was diagnosed with a haematological cancer 2 years ago.

“It’s incredibly sad that anyone suffers a haematological cancer… but more tragic for this to happen to a child and result in loss of such young lives.”

Andy was presented with his Everyday Hero page on Saturday, October 19 after an incredible total of $2550.57 had been raised for the Foundation by his generous friends and family.

“My husband loved his webpage and looks forward to trying to build up the donation bank himself!”

We would like to thank both Natalie and Andy for choosing to support the Foundation through this wonderful gift idea! Do you have a birthday coming up or want to do something a little more meaningful this Christmas? It’s easy to create your own fundraising page through Everyday Hero. Simply follow the steps below.

How to create a fundraising page:

  1. Create a fundraising page and select CLCRF as your charity.
  2. Personalise your page with a photo and tell everyone why you’re supporting CLCRF.
  3. Share your unique supporter page link with your friends, family, and colleagues through social media.
