Shine A Light is the theme of our campaign this year. We chose this theme because in the work that we do, we shine a light on the path out of homelessness for our homeless friends so they can see there’s hope ahead!We want to share more about what we’ve been doing with you, and invite you to shine your light with us. Together, we can make this path brighter, so more can find their way home.
Beacon registration starts from 1 August 2022.
The campaign will run from 1 September 2022 to 31 December 2022.Online donations can be made from 31 December onwards.
When you donate to a team on their team profile page, your donation will be shared evenly amongst all members of the team. For example, if you give $500 to a team with five members, each member will "receive" $100 from your donation.
Donations made to a team member's profile page will not be distributed amongst other team members.Whether you choose to make a donation to a team or team member, your total donation will be reflected in the overall amount raised by the team.
No, you don’t have to. You can simply share about the cause and why you’re supporting us when in conversation with others, and direct them to make a donation via your profile page if they’d like to do so.If you need ideas, check out our next question!
