Fundraising

A Little Lifetime Foundation is a registered charity and a voluntary organisation. We strive to keep our running costs to the absolute minimum whilst ensuring that we can continue to provide our support services to bereaved parents. In keeping with this, both our executive and support teams are entirely made up of volunteers. We engage a professional bereavement therapist who attends our support meetings and who provides counselling for bereaved parents and mentoring for our parent support team.

We understand how much it means to bereaved parents, and their family and friends, to organise an event in memory of their precious baby and we are honoured when parents choose to organise their fundraising event on behalf of ALLF. We are very happy to supply our ALLF t-shirts to be worn at your ALLF fundraising event. Our ALLF t-shirts can be personalised with your baby’s name, special date or left blank as you wish.

There are many different ideas for fundraising events and below is just a few suggestions that have worked well for parents in the past.

  • Marathons
  • Women’s Mini Marathon
  • Table Quiz
  • Raffle
  • Auction
  • Sea Swim
  • Head Shave
  • Mountain Challenge
  • Walking Challenge
  • Stairs Challenge
  • Donations in lieu of birthday or other gifts
  • Donations in lieu of wedding favours

Online fundraisers have become very popular and all of the fundraising suggestions listed above are perfect for receiving online donations from any family and friends who can’t attend your event or if your event is a challenge. The following are the online fundraising platforms that we find are most popular, however you are welcome to choose whichever platform you wish for your fundraising event.

  • Facebook fundraising page (100% donations come to ALLF, no fees deducted by Facebook)
  • idonate fundraising page

Please contact info@alittlelifetime.ie if you would like further information or assistance on organising a fundraising event.

As the country is now in lockdown due to Covid-19, please ensure you do not organise a gathering to fundraise on behalf of ALLF. All fundraising events must be online during this time.
