Fundraise

Make a donation or fundraise for Shine to help us reach more victims of domestic abuse.
To fundraise for Shine, think about how you could best use your own skills, talents, and networks. Remember to also have fun while you’re fundraising!

The ideas are endless, but below are a few examples. 

Don’t forget to create your everydayhero fundraising page and join team shine for your event. Get some tips on creating a great fundraising page here.  

  • Have an orange mufti day at your school or office. Have prizes for the best or wackiest outfit. 
  • Hold a morning tea or shared lunch at work, or invite friends around to your home. Ask for a donation.
  • Run a baking competition at work, school or church.
  • Create a raffle. Ask local businesses to donate goods for you to raffle at work, to friends, sports teams, etc.
  • Organise a movie night: Negotiate with your local movie theatre to rent a cinema to show a movie very cheaply, and sell tickets to friends and family.
  • Create a show, whether it be a music recital, stage show, karaoke night at a school or community hall and either sell tickets or ask for a donation.
  • Give up your daily coffee, chocolate, alcohol, sugar for a specific amount of time, get friends and family to sponsor you and if you slip, you also need to make a donation.
  • Have a garage sale or sell your unwanted goods on trade me and donate proceeds to Shine.
  • Collect donations outside your local supermarket.
