We shine a spotlight on this devastating disease in September

Seventy per cent of Australians are unaware that more kids die from cancer than any other disease in this country. With awareness, comes support. Government funding only stretches so far so it is vital the community step up to help fund the scientific research so urgently needed. Read our ideas below or download our Advocate Kit today.



Let’s light Australia’s buildings gold. We want everyone to swap their white outdoor bulbs for golden globes to honour children with cancer.

Get creative and share your Instagram-able golden moments with family and friends. Tag us in as we’d love to see them too.

Have fun with fundraising by hosting an event of any size or style. Keep it casual with cupcakes or go grand with a gala.

Swap your white globes for gold this September

What businesses, buildings or monuments could you influence to light up for kids with cancer? Write and ask them to glow gold for one night or the whole month. Download our Advocate Kit for letter samples. 

Your mobile phone is a powerful awareness tool

We call them phones yet we probably use those devices that live in our pockets and bags more for texting, scrolling through social media news and taking photos. This September put all three to good use with these ideas.
