Celebrate and donate – an easy way to raise money for type 1 diabetes research
Do you have a birthday, wedding, anniversary or other special occasion coming up? Then JDRF would love it if you requested that guests celebrate and donate. Rather than giving unwanted gifts, ask guests to make a donation to JDRF instead. You and your guests will be able to celebrate your special occasion knowing that your donations will help thousands of people with type 1 diabetes in the UK.
Raising money for JDRF and type 1 diabetes is easy
Create an online fundraising page via Just Giving. This is a great way to allow guests to easily donate to JDRF, even if they are unable to attend your celebration.
If your guests still want to give you a ‘gift’ they could always choose something from our range of virtual 'gifts' in our online shop. We’ll send a gift card that can be personalized. Gifts such as the ‘Islet Protectors’ or ‘Beta Cell Defenders’ will also help educate your guests about the needs of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Whether guests choose to make a direct donation or choose a virtual gift you won’t be left with unwanted presents. You’ll have an extra cause to celebrate as well – helping to fund vital type 1 diabetes research.
