Standing up to cancer with Canteen
Did you know that, every single day, 63 young Aussies get told that they or a close family member has been diagnosed with cancer?
It’s only through your fundraising and support, that we can continue to be in their corner and provide services like Canteen Connect – a world class 24/7 online support service.
Canteen Connect enables young people whose lives have been impacted by cancer to connect with others in similar situations online. Information and helpful resources are tailored to each individual situation and young people can easily chat to one of our online counsellors and each other. Due to COVID-19, we have seen a huge spike in registrations and logins already this year.
So please help young Aussies stand up to cancer and host an event at work or in your local community, run a virtual marathon, shave your head or collect donations in lieu of birthday or wedding gifts. However you choose to fundraise, you can help make sure no young person has to face cancer alone.
Ideas to get you started
Host your own fundraiser at school, virtually or at home (remember to comply with social distancing guidelines). Host a morning tea with your colleagues or get the your friends around for a games or pamper night.
So much fun to be had!
Why not ask for birthday or wedding gifts in the form of a donation to Canteen this year? Set up a fundraising page and share it on social media or include the link as part of your wedding invitations.
It's truly amazing what can happen when you ask.
Maybe it's that mid-morning coffee you'd nip out of the office to get every morning, or the sugary snack you'd have with your afternoon tea. Or could you quit Netflix for a whole month?!
'Quit It' - and ask people to support you at the same time.
Run, walk, cycle, swim, hop, skip, jump, dance or climb. Anything goes as long as you are 'Moving It'!
Why not get your friends, family, colleagues and school involved too and create a team. The more the merrier!
Are you a serious gamer or someone who streams for fun? It's a fantastic way to fundraise! You can be playing FIFA, battling in League of Legends or even live-streaming a baking lesson, teaching karate or holding a guitar jam session.
The online world is your oyster, and it's easy to link to Canteen!
