Together We Can

Together We Can Build Healthy Families

A new national campaign is inviting you to join together with your friends, family and work colleagues to host your own special event to support WIRF.

The choice is yours whether you’re organising a morning tea at work, a group walk or ride, movie night, or an event with a difference, hosting a DIY fundraiser is the perfect way to directly help us to prevent preterm birth and improve mental health and cancer outcomes for all Australian women.

During March 2021 we will ask our network of friends, followers and supporters, to be a part of this national wave of positive change by hosting their own special event.

To register your event please complete this simple form and email it back to info@wirf.com.au

We are in the process of finalising a free and downloadable fundraising guide and tool kit to help you get started. The tool kit will contain everything you need to make your event a success, with our easy-to-use guide, invitations, posters, digital banners, social media content and more.

Little treasures go into bat for WIRF

Ethan, David and Claudia Yates Sirvent made headlines in late 2019 when they put their toys and treasures up for sale as part of a garage sale fundraiser for WIRF and the response from the media and local community was remarkable.

"The triplets were premature and the work WIRF do is amazing - personally it's a cause we've chosen to support actively," mother Eva reflects.
