They say it’s better to give than to receive. You can help give the gift of health and life – there’s surely no better feeling than that.

With so many birthdays, milestones, anniversaries and events to celebrate in our lives, we enjoy countless occasions to receive gifts.  If you’d like to do something different, while making a big difference, you can ask your loved ones to donate to the Auckland Health Foundation rather than give you presents.

This simple selfless act will not only make your celebration more meaningful, and show friends and family your big heart, it will help fund innovation, technology, discovery and advancements that will ultimately save lives.

There are many ways to make it happen, whether you’re planning a small birthday gathering or a large wedding (and everything in between), and we’ll help you bring it to life.  We can supply donation buckets, information and branded goodies, or you can set up a everydayhero account (we can help with that too!) – making it super easy for loved ones to donate any amount they choose.

No amount raised is too small and you can choose exactly where the donation goes – towards a priority project, the DHB department of your choice, or into our ‘Greatest Needs Fund’.  We guarantee that every dollar will benefit Auckland DHB patients and communities in ways that wouldn’t be possible without generous people like you.

Email candy@aucklandhealthfoundation.org.nz or call 09 307 6039 for support and advice – we’ll be happy to ensure your celebration is extra special!
