A November to Remember – #N2R
“Get out there, have fun, do what invigorates you, and go as hard as you can to support seriously ill kids this November.”
What we’re doing
As Canberra is coming out of lockdown, the sun is shining, and we are trying to shed some of our “COVID Kilos” and boost our mental health, the month of November is a great opportunity to get fit, spend time outdoors, have some fun, and raise vital funds for local Canberra charity, the Stella Bella Foundation!
Why it’s important
The Stella Bella Foundation is a local charity which makes a real difference to the lives of critically ill children and their families in our region. We provide crucial assistance to families who are struggling financially whilst caring for a seriously ill child with grants, food and petrol vouchers; we run an innovative respite care centre for seriously ill babies and children; we provide a range of family supports including meals for parents with babies in the Neonatal Care Unit at the Canberra Hospital and we run the well-known “Little Star Beads Program” for seriously ill children to enable to them to tell the story of their medical journey and feel proud of all of the challenges they have faced. We are a registered charity with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, so you can be confident that any funds you raise will go directly to supporting these super important initiatives.
How “A November to Remember” Works:
Choose an activity, set your goal for the month of November and come up with your pledge:
