We are extremely excited to introduce the newest member of our team, David Holmes. We are very fortunate to be in a position where we’ve been able to expand our team during such a challenging year. David brings a wealth of experience to the team and is looking forward to helping our charities and events raise more this year.
We know that there are a lot of people who can’t be with their Mums, Grandmothers or other mother-figures on Mother’s Day this year – so we have created a way you can let her know that you’re thinking of her.
This year, we’ve created virtual bouquets that you can send to Mum with a donation to her favourite charity. You can also dedicate a virtual bouquet in memory of a loved one. All Australian organisations on the GoFundraise platform have been added to this campaign.
Firstly, we hope that you’re safe and healthy during this difficult time. We know that there are lots of people struggling around the world due to the effects of COVID-19.
For those of you who are able, we wanted to let you know of some ways that you can help. Most charities have been directly impacted and could use your support in this time. Here are some campaigns that you might like to support.

There are so many causes with increased need during COVID-19: such as mental health crisis and support services, domestic violence shelters, medical research institutions and various causes that look after our most vulnerable people.

“I LOVE these new metrics!
Being able to see these topline numbers instantly will be so helpful during our Melanoma March campaign and allow me to spend less time running reports and more time implementing strategies to grow our fundraising”
