Fundraising Opportunity

Brighten up mum’s day with an Entertainment Membership!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Have you got your mum a gift yet? An Entertainment Membership is the perfect way to brighten up mum’s day, offering so many great savings on restaurants, cafes, entertainment, travel, and shopping.

If you’re worried that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the amount of great savings available – think again! Entertainment is continuing to add to the growing list of businesses offering takeaway and delivery for food, shopping, and services. So, mum can treat herself at home while supporting the local community!

Alternatively, your mum will also have the choice to make the most of the savings at a later date, having 6 months to activate the Membership.

If you purchase an Entertainment Membership before Mother’s Day on May 10, you will also receive a bonus Big W eGift Card! That’s a $10 eGift card for a Single City Membership and a $20 eGift card for a Multi City or Multi Plus Membership. PLUS, you will receive 2 months extra Membership for free!

The best part is that 20% of each Membership will go towards the Foundation, helping to fund the important research into childhood cancers.

So get your mum the gift that keeps on giving and purchase an Entertainment Membership today!

Giving back isn’t cancelled!

In light of #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5 – an opportunity to encourage generosity during these uncertain times – we want to share ways you can support us right from your own home. We understand that times are tough for many of us, so we want to remind you that there are so many ways you can continue to support the Foundation other than making a financial contribution.

Here are some great ideas for how you can support childhood cancer research:

Support us on social media

Social media is a great way to show your support and it won’t cost you a thing! By following our social media channels and engaging with our content, you will be helping us raise awareness for childhood cancer research. So be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. We also encourage you to share your own stories on social media about why you support CLCRF. If you do decide to share your stories of support, please tag us or use the #CLCRF hashtag so we can see your posts and thank you!

Buy a raffle ticket

By buying a raffle ticket from CLCRF, not only will you be helping to fund childhood cancer research, but you will also go into the draw to win a whopping $15,000! Although this way of supporting us isn’t free, raffle tickets are only $2 each and you have the freedom to purchase as few or as many as you like. Our next raffle will be drawn on Tuesday, June 30 so be sure to purchase your ticket before then for your chance to win big!

Ask for gift donations

If you have a birthday coming up and your loved ones are asking for gift ideas, why not ask them to make a donation to CLCRF instead? Asking for a donation as a gift is a great way to make your special day more meaningful as you will be helping an important cause during such a crucial time.

Facebook’s partnership with PayPal offers a convenient and secure way to raise funds on your birthday by allowing you to create your own fundraiser page. All you need to do is click the “create” button on the top of your Facebook page, then select the “Fundraiser” option. When asked what charity to donate to, simply search for “Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation” and you will see our account.

Register to be a volunteer for CLCRF

Since having to postpone many of our upcoming events, our need for volunteers has reduced – but this doesn’t mean you can’t still register your interest to help us at a later date! Without the invaluable help of our volunteers, we would not be able to run our community events or raise as much money for childhood cancer research.

Have your own fun run

This year’s HBF Run for a Reason may be cancelled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have your own fun run for CLCRF! The event has kept their fundraising pages open, meaning you can still show your support for the initiative. So why not create a fundraising page and ask your friends and family to support you as you do your own run, walk, or jog. You can head to your local park or, if you live in a quiet area and it’s safe to do so, plan a run around your neighbourhood.

At a time when we’re all experiencing the pandemic, generosity and the power to make a positive change in the lives of others is what can bring us together. If you choose to support the CLCRF cause in your own creative way during this time, we would love to hear about it – be sure to tag us on Facebook or Instagram!

Have your own fun run for CLCRF!

In case you missed it, HBF Run for a Reason has regretfully announced their decision to cancel the event that was set to take place on May 24 due to coronavirus fears. READ MORE

Run for Childhood Cancer Research

Registrations are now open for the 2020 HBF Run for a Reason! This year, Western Australia’s most well-loved community event will take place on Sunday, May 24.

You can help us raise important funds for childhood cancer research by choosing the Foundation as your reason to participate in either the Commonwealth Bank 4k, the Kleenheat 12k or the Brooks Half Marathon.

As the Foundation does not receive State or Federal funding, we rely on the generous support of the community at these wonderful events to help us ensure the ground-breaking research into childhood cancer can continue so that future generations can live cancer free.

The event is not only a great way to support an important cause, but it will also allow you to get active and have a good time with your family and friends. Not a runner? Don’t sweat it! You are free to run, walk, jog or roll your way to the finish line!

The Commonwealth Bank 4km course is the perfect non-competitive course for those looking to have a fun day out with their family and friends. The 4km course takes you on a scenic tour of Perth as you make your way along the Swan River. It’s also loaded with fun surprises and entertainment!

The Kleenheat 12km course is a great choice for those who are looking for more of a running challenge or need a longer walk to chat to their friends. If you are a seasoned runner or attempting your longest run yet, the Brooks Half Marathon promises to get those legs pumping with a flat, fast course.

40 years of making a difference

This year is a very special one for the Foundation, as it marks our 40th year of raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer research! Upon reaching this milestone, we reflect on our past achievements and look forward to continuing to make a difference in the lives of children and families facing a cancer diagnosis.

Over the past 40 years, we have raised a substantial amount of funds for important research projects at the Telethon Kids Institute which has assisted children in WA, nationwide, and internationally. One of our biggest achievements would have to be funding the first cancer cell bank, which has contributed to positive outcomes for a number of families.

We are so proud of the ground-breaking work we have helped to fund over the years and have been thrilled to see survival rates increase as a result. It was recorded that only 20 per cent of children with cancer survived 50 years ago, which has since improved to 80 per cent for some forms of cancer.

There is still however a lot more work to be done and we are committed to ensuring this research can continue so that future generations can live cancer free.

As we do not receive any government funding, our biggest goal going into this milestone year is to grow our support base. CLCRF relies significantly on the generosity of our community and there are so many ways, big and small, to help us to continue to make a difference.

We have a lot of exciting plans in store for our supporters this year and we encourage you to keep an eye on our socials to stay across all of our upcoming opportunities and events. To stay in the know, you can like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and sign up to our email newsletter. 

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported us over the past 40 years, the Foundation would not be where it is today without your support! A special thanks goes to our members who have been critical to the ongoing success of the Foundation. Not a member yet? Become one today!

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.

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.

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. Simply make a donation online, mention in the comments that you would like to turn it into a bauble and we will send it to you, along with your receipt, to give as a gift or hang on your Christmas tree!

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.
