Click on the blue button to make a direct deposit OR
set up a page on 'GoFundraise'.
You can create your own page and fundraise for an event such as ‘Colour Fun Run’ and Marathon Fun Runs (in all states), In Memory of a Loved One or as a Personal Challenge on the ‘Making a Difference’ page OR you can set up a personal ‘Seasons Giving Appeal’ and ask people to donate instead of getting useless presents that you will probably have to recycle. Why not help us instead to achieve bigger goals.
Making a Difference starts with YOU!
Organise your own Fundraiser at GoFundraise.
We are always in need of celebrities to support the cause. You don't have to have lupus to show your support.

LUPUS 'WIGS for KIDS' Challenge
Please grow out your hair, for those whose hair remains bare."
Lupus 'Wigs for Kids' Challenge is a permanent ongoing lupus fundraiser. Participation is open to anyone world-wide.
Participants are asked to sponsor and grow their locks to a minimum length of 30 cm and then donate their hair to make medical wigs for the ‘Wigs for Kids’ program supporting kids with lupus, cancer, alopecia areata and other illnesses. As part of the program, the kids are given a voucher to the total amount of $400 to use at selected wig makers.
AND, if you don’t have hair to give, you can still fundraise and we will still provide you with your own fundraising page AND if that seems like too much hard work, you can also donate funds, products for auctions and items for our gift bags for our functions and events.
So, there’s plenty of ways to show your support.
(refer to Lupus 'Wigs for Kids' Challenge for more information)
