Thank you MPA

Thank you to our partner MPA who matched every donation for Redkite's Lighten the Load campaign this September and ensured that 61 new families who are facing their child's cancer receive essential support. Because of their generous commitment, the impact of everyone's donations and fundraising for Lighten the Load was doubled to reach even more families with emotional and financial support.

Thank you Alternative Future Foundation

Thank you to our supporters at the Alternative Future Foundation who generously donated $50,000 to lighten the load for families facing cancer, and with the matching from MPA this became $100,000. That means 40 families will receive critical financial and emotional support when their child is diagnosed with cancer.

Help us reach our goal of $150,000 to help 60 families whose lives have been shattered by their child’s cancer

The cost of treatment and time off work for parents to be with their child, can put significant financial pressure on families. 13% of parents even have to go without meals to pay bills.

Your impact will be doubled!

To help reach our goal, our generous friends at MPA are onboard to match every donation*. That means your donation will have double the impact!

Together we can lighten the load for 60 families facing childhood cancer for an entire year in 30 days! Donate now or start fundraising to support these families.

When Magnus was diagnosed with cancer, his family faced unexpected financial strain

“Our household bills skyrocketed. Magnus was so cold all the time. We had to have the heating on all the time. Even in summer he felt the cold. He was also toxic from the chemotherapy… I’d have to get all the washing done and in the drier because his sheets, pillow, pyjamas and everything was toxic. The water bills were an absolute shocker and the electricity bills were absolutely through the roof. So it was a really expensive time.”
