We want to get involved
How can we help?
Every dollar you raise is a dollar for dementia – it directly strengthens our ability to raise awareness, reduce stigma and deliver our services around the country. Our local dementia teams need your help to make sure people affected by dementia get all the support they need.
Get the conversation started, be inspired by one of the ideas and help us raise vital funds.
Please make sure you follow all the COVID-19 advice around social distancing and group sizes.
Wear it Red Day
Rock your favourite red shirt, t-shirt or onesie at home or to work and celebrate World Alzheimer's Day on Monday 21 September.
Hideous Hair Day
Pick a day and encourage everyone to wear the wackiest wigs or hair they can and organise a collection. Don't forget to take photos.
It's never been more important to be kind. Do a kind deed for someone on World Alzheimer's Day and share the aroha.
Loud Shirt Day
Get your friends, family and work colleagues together for a loud shirt day and raise funds for those affected by dementia.
Minute of reflection
Select a time, bring everyone together and take a minute to reflect on all those affected by dementia. During that minute encourage everyone to text UNITE at 2449 together for a $3 donation.
Invite friends and co-workers to join you in a photo with our Let's Talk About Dementia signs and see how creative you can be.
Take a day, reminisce, share life experiences, memories and stories from the past. This is a beautiful opportunity to raise money for people living with dementia while reflecting on moments that made us smile.
Staying in is the new going out. Nominate a host's house, all chip in for the food and donate the money you would have spent on eating out to support people affected by dementia.
Enjoy a coffee morning with family, friends, neighbours and co-workers. Coffee, cakes and fundraising.
