This September, will you Get Together For Dementia?
- By Dementia Auckland
Did you know that there are currently 15,000 people with dementia in the greater Auckland region – and that this number is expected to double over the next 15 to 20 years?
Get Together For Dementia is an easy way for people across Auckland throughout the month of September to support people living with dementia in our community. Why not hold a morning tea at your work place, rest home or club where everyone brings a plate and makes a donation? Or have a dress-up day in the office, have everyone make a $10 donation and give out prizes for best (or worst) dressed.
Create a fundraising event to suit you!
1) REGISTER – Sign up and we'll send you a free fundraising pack with tea, coffee and other goodies to help you make the most of your event.
2) PLAN – Whether it is a shared lunch or morning tea, mufti-day, trivia night or simply a cuppa with some friends, get planning and start inviting!
3) FUNDRAISE – Set a fundraising goal for your event – whether your fundraising goal is $50 or $5,000, every bit helps! Send the link to your friends and colleagues.
4) HAVE FUN – Know that you are helping provide specialised services FREE of charge to people with dementia right across Auckland.
It's an easy way to make a difference in your community – thanks for your helping us to support people living with dementia by holding a Get Together For Dementia event.
