It’s often hard to know how to commemorate a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away. Donating to Redkite in their memory is a positive and lasting way of celebrating their life while helping to raise vital funds to help families on the cancer journey. An ‘in memoriam’ donation will make a real difference to the children, young people and families who Redkite supports.
Donations in lieu of flowers
Redkite can provide donation envelopes if you are requesting donations be made to Redkite in lieu of flowers. These can be sent directly to you or to the nominated funeral home. Those who make an ‘in lieu’ donation will be acknowledged and receipted by Redkite and the next of kin will be advised the names of those who have donated in memory of their loved one.
Please ring us on 1800 REDKITE (1800 733 548) to speak to the Donor Development team, or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Organising an 'in memory' event
Are you hoping to gather a number of donations from different people to commemorate a loved one, friend or colleague? You can build an ‘In Memory’ donation website to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. Once set up you can simply email the unique link of the webpage to your friends and family so they can contribute. Each donation is recorded on your page along with any message of support from family, friends and colleagues.
For more information about donating in memory please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1800 REDKITE (1800 733 548).
