A simple way to raise funds for Bravehearts’ White Balloon Day is to sell a box of merchandise.
All the funds you raise will go towards counselling, preventative education and research, as well help fund our essential lobbying and advocacy on behalf of child sexual assault survivors (for more information on how your donation dollars will make a difference, please GO HERE).
This year we are selling complete merchandise boxes that come with everything you need to raise funds for White Balloon Day. The upfront cost of the box is $75 (including postage Australia-wide). If you sell all the products in the box you will raise $150. You can then take out the cost of the box as your reimbursement, or choose to donate the entire amount raised.

If so, you can simply deposit your merchandise box funds into your own bank account, then donate this amount to your own online fundraising page. This will then show up on your overall fundraising total on your page, which is great.
If you didn’t register a fundraiser or event and don’t have an online fundraising page, there are two ways to get the funds to us:
