Fundraise for Very Special Kids

Receiving the news that a child has a life-limiting illness can be a parent’s greatest fear. For many of us, this is unimaginable. But for the families that need our services, this is their reality.

We believe every child deserves quality of life, no matter how long or short that life may be.



By choosing to do something very special for Very Special Kids, you can help the seriously ill children and young people we care for live their best life.




Very Special Kids relies on generous financial support from our community. You are the reason seriously sick kids and their families have access to comfort, respite and the very best care in the most difficult of times.


There are many ways you can get involved:

Celebrate a very special day

Do you have a special milestone coming up such as a birthday, baptism, engagement, wedding, or bar/bat mitzvah? Why not make it a very special celebration? Instead of gifts, ask loved ones to donate to Very Special Kids or make your own donation in lieu of thank you favours.

Honour someone very special

Honour a loved one’s memory by collecting donations for Very Special Kids in lieu of flowers or gifts at their funeral or on the anniversary of their passing.

Do something very special, your way

There are endless ways to raise funds whether it’s an athletic challenge, a very special occasion, or your own unique creation, you can make a big difference to sick kids and their families by doing something very special, your way.

Take on a challenge

Raise more than a sweat and get active for a good cause. Challenge yourself to do a run, walk, or sign up for a marathon, tennis tournament or triathlon. Ask people to sponsor your training efforts with a very special donation to keep you moving and motivated.
