New Year’s Resolutions give hope to charity

New Year's Resolutions give hope to charityMaking New Year’s Resolutions is a wonderful tradition promoting self-improvement, transition and promise for the future.

We’ve put together a short list of some of the most popular Resolutions for the New Year, but don’t be distracted if you think you’ve seen them before. Our little twist to these gems is that every single one of them can contribute to the fight against cancer!

  1. Get fit: Community fun runs, marathons and ocean swims provide a fantastic fitness goal to work towards this year, and there’s so many to choose from! You could get a team together or take on the challenge yourself, and be sure to set a fundraising target to make your training efforts even more inspirational.
  2. See the sights: Are you planning an adventure abroad? Is the Great Wall of China, the Vietnamese countryside, or the mountain ranges of Nepal calling? Well in 2013, the ACRF would be thrilled to help you organise the trip of a lifetime in conjunction with a cancer fundraising target. We can also offer two Australian-based adventures that focus on professional development and work-place leadership!

  3. Give it up: Whether your vice is too much caffeine, shopping, cake or cigarettes, every dollar that you save by giving up these indulgences will, when donated to the ACRF, fund research with the power to beat cancer. If you expect to save a regular amount each month, you might like to sign up to our Partner In the Cure program, which makes monthly giving easy and fuss-free!
  4. Get social: Event organisers always have something to look forward  to – after all, who doesn’t love a party? From a local BBQ, to a community trivia night, to a grand ball in the city, you are guaranteed to have an incredible experience when organising a social event for cancer research. It puts you in touch with new businesses and social networks, and at the same time, it spreads the word about the cause you care about most.

At the ACRF, our mission for 2013 is to increase funding for cutting-edge Australian cancer research. Every donation dollar we receive will go towards research which speeds up the cancer cures.

So whatever your New Year’s Resolution, please consider your fundraising options and support us in 2013. Our friendly staff are always excited to discuss your ideas with you and offer advice on how best to fundraise and promote your initiative. Please call us on 1300 884 988!
