Host a Purple Event

Go purple to help children who’ve experienced violence or trauma to heal, recover and thrive. It’s up to you what you do. Just dream it up and colour it purple.

Purple cupcake day? Delicious. Purple shirt Saturday? Styling. A purple birthday BBQ celebration? Hooray!

You can do anything you like. And once you’ve picked your purple theme, it’s time to fundraise.

Avril's birthday gifts are helping children thrive.

After hearing a radio program about children living in tough circumstances, Avril decided to ‘donate her birthday’ to children who’ve experienced violence and trauma.

Instead of birthday presents, she asked her friends and family to make a gift to the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.

“I want all children to have things they need, so I gave up my birthday presents and asked people to donate to help children in need. It feels so good to give!” – 9-year-old Avril
