Give to Can Assist in lieu of a gift

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, wedding or other occasion, asking your guests for a donation rather than a gift is a special way to show you care and support Can Assist.

Can Assist strives to help change lives by providing access to treatment and care for all rural, regional and remote cancer patients and families, giving them hope for happier times ahead.

To encourage a donation in lieu of gifts, you can choose to create a fundraising page to share with friends and family, or simply make a one-off donation.

Katie decided that instead of receiving presents for her 16th birthday, she would host a fundraiser afternoon tea to raise funds for Can Assist.

It was her way of acknowledging the support that her local branch had provided her family when her Dad was receiving treatment for lung cancer. From all accounts her friends had a fabulous time enjoying scones, tea and friendship whilst generously raising  over $1000 for Can Assist.

Katie said “it was the best birthday ever!”. Thanks Katie, from all of us at Can Assist
