Plans might be cancelled but generosity isn't...
If you can't go out for dinner and drinks with your family and friends, why not set up a birthday fundraiser and ask them to donate a gift to people living with cerebral palsy instead.
It's so simple to set up an online fundraising page, then you can share it via email, social media or even SMS.
Marking a different occasion?
Celebrate Your Wedding
Congratulations on your engagement, and thanks for thinking of Cerebral Palsy Alliance in the lead up to your big day. If you already have everything you need to start your life together, you might consider asking your guests to make a donation rather than gifts - we could even help you create a 'registry' which would show guests what their donations could mean to a person living with cerebral palsy.
Alternatively, you might wish to make a donation yourself, in lieu of wedding gifts (bonbonniere). We can arrange place cards for your guests to let them know about your generousity.
Giving in Memory of a Loved One
Donating in lieu of flowers at a funeral, is a special and generous way to honour a loved one. You can ask the funeral director to contact us on your behalf to arrange special donation evelopes, or you can contact us directly to arrange this. We ensure that each person who makes a donation receives a thank you letter and receipt.
The Difference You Make
Thanks to the following suppoorters who donated their days!
Asked guests at her bridal shower to give donations rather than gifts and raised $558 to support research into cerebral palsy.
Paul & Frances
Paul & Frances asks guests at their son's baptism to give a donation rather than a gift. They raised an incredible $4,500 which was then matched by Paul's employer - meaning they contributed $9,000 to CPA.
To celebrate his 50th birthday, Paul asked his friends and family to make donations towards specialised equipment. Thanks to their generousity, $35,000 was raised and eight people living with cerebral palsy received equipment they otherwise wouldn't have.
Asked friends and family to make a donation for her 2nd Birthday. Together they raised $304 to support people living with cerebral palsy.
