Sponsored runs, concerts, special dinners, donation days at schools, and weddings are only a few of the ways you can help to raise money for young people with type 1 diabetes.

Donate in honor or memory

You can make a donation in honor or memory of someone special. Simply make the donation and check the appropriate box at the bottom of the ‘your details’ section of the donation form. 

Donate to a clinic or project

We are able to allocate donations of $10,000 or more to specific locations or projects. Please get in touch to find out more.


Bequests allow us to provide lasting support, creating a new future for children living with type 1 diabetes in under-resourced countries. Leaving a gift can take a number of forms such as the residue or a percentage of the estate, a specific amount of money, asset such as shares or more.

Industry Partners

We believe that no child should die of diabetes and seek partners who share this belief. Industry partnerships enable us to provide young people living with diabetes in under resourced countries with the insulin and tools they need to stay alive and the education that allows them to thrive.

Please get in touch to find out more.

Volunteer or Mentor

Given the health-related nature of the program, it is generally only possible for us to send experienced health professionals on site visits, and, even then, only in certain contexts. These visits are usually self-funded and the participant often speaks the language(s) of the country they are visiting, in addition to English.

Please get in touch to find out more.
