MND Queensland provides information, referral, support and equipment loans to families living with MND.  We rely heavily on our volunteers, members and community's generosity to help raise funding to deliver the services we provide for people with motor neurone disease, their families and carers and to fund research.
There are many ways you can help our work, and here are just a few suggestions: 

  • Host your own  'Drink Tea for MND' tea party. Invite your friends and instead of a gift, ask them to make a donation to MND Queensland instead.
  • Host your own gala or fundraising event. You might have a big idea like hosting an exhibition, putting on a play or musical, holding a gala or ball, or if you're in a regional area you might want to host a Walk to D-Feet MND event in your area! You're only limited by your imagination! Chat with some friends to see if you can form a volunteer committee to help you make your idea a reality.
  • Make a donation or become a monthly donor/regular giver. Becoming a regular giver is great as it guarantees an income for MND Queensland, makes donating easier for your with automatic receipting, and also reduces our administration procedures. You can donate or become a regular giver at www.givenow.com.au/mndaq
  • Leave a bequest in your Will. Leaving a gift in your will is your final way of showing your values and what you believe in. When you're planning or updating your Will, why not consider a donation to MND Queensland? For more information and suggested wording click here.
  • Ice Bucket Challenge - this viral phenomenon started in 2014 and is an easy, fun way for you to get involved and help raise awareness and funds for MND. Officially August is the month for the Ice Bucket Challenge #EveryAugustUntilThereIsACure but you can do the challenge at any time. Make a donation to MND Queensland, pour a bucket of ice-filled water over your head while filiming it and challenge some friends to either do it too, or make a donation instead.
  • Buy an Entertainment Membership and save hundreds or thousands of dollars through discounted offers on things like fine or casual dining, travel, shopping, experiences and more! Membership pays for itself after just a few uses. Even better, MND Queensland earns money for every membership that we sell. Get yours now at https://www.entertainment.com.au/orderbooks/2221j21
  • Donations in lieu of gifts/flowers - You might be having a big occasion like a birthday, wedding or anniversary, but don't want any presents as you already have everything you need. Why not ask guests to make a donation to MND Queensland in your name instead?
  • In-Memoriam Donations - If you've lost a loved one, instead of flowers, you might prefer attendees make a donation to MND Queensland instead. We have special envelopes that we can issue for this specific purpose and we can also set up a web page to accept donations in memory of your loved one. When planning a funeral, make sure to contact us ASAP so we can send these envelopes out to the funeral home in time for the funeral or so that we can set up the in-memoriam donation page.
  • Mute Me for MND - Get sponsored to stay silent for an hour or a day! A great activity in the school or office as it also highlights the fact that most people with MND lose their ability to speak, so it makes you find creative ways to communicate.
  • Not all heroes wear capes - Become an Everyday Hero for MND!  It's free and easy to create your own online supporter's page and approach your friends, family, colleagues and contacts for tax deductible donations.  Each secure donation is recorded on your page along with any messages of support from your donors.  You can also find us registered with Go Fundraise by clicking here (y9ou can also find exciting outdoor events like marathons on Go Fundraise that you can register for and fundraise for MND) or My Cause by clicking here
  • Attend our events - come along and support our events like our Walk to D-Feet MND events, get sponsored and help raise awareness at the same time.
  • Workplace Giving - Does your employer support a Workplace Giving program where you can donate directly from your wage? If so, see if MND Queensland can be included as a charity that you can give to. Some employers even have a dollar matching program where your donation could be doubled!
  • Buy MND merchandise - purchase our branded merchandise to help us increase awareness and raise vital funds. You can purchase our merchandise online by visiting http://www.mndaq.org.au/Get-involved/MND-QLD-Merchandise.aspx
  • Simply follow our social media and share our posts - this is the easiest way for you to help us spread our messages and promote our events to help make them a success! You can find our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linked In information on this page http://www.mndaq.org.au/Contact-us.aspx
