FUNDRAISING IDEAS

There are many ways you can help raise funds for depressioNet. In addition to supporting wonderful programs such as the Ritchies Community Benefit where simply by shopping at Ritchies you are helping depressioNet financially, there are a range of very simple and easy activities where you can raise funds and have fun at the same time!

There are many other benefits of fundraising in addition to raising vital funds to support depressioNet. Fundraising activities are a great way to increase awareness of depression amongst your friends and family, in your workplace, social and sporting groups and the community in general. And of course fundraising can, and should be, fun!

The idea is to harness the energy, enthusiasm and skills of depressioNet members, our families, friends, workmates and the community to provide inspiration, support and a team approach to raising vital funds for depressioNet.
