Make a donation or fundraise for Shine to help us reach more people trapped by violence and control to become safe and free.

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.

Sponsored sporting event

If you are a runner, walker, swimmer, cyclist or adventurer, sign up to one of the many exciting events throughout the country, set up an online fundraising page and ask friends, family and workmates to sponsor you. Don’t forget to create your grassrootz fundraising page and join Team Shine for your event.

Hold a morning tea or shared lunch at work, or invite friends around to your home. Ask for a donation.

Sell tickets to shows

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.

Hold a garage sale

Have a garage sale or sell your unwanted goods on trademe and donate proceeds to Shine.

Orange mufti day

Have an orange mufti day at your school or office. Have prizes for the best or wackiest outfit.

Run a baking competition at work, school or church.


Ask local businesses to donate goods for you to raffle at work, to friends, sports teams, etc.

Movie night

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.


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.
