Hold Your Own Fundraising Event
We rely on charitable gifts, and hugely value the support people like you give us by fundraising.
A dress down (or up) day at your school or workplace, a themed bake sale, a video evening or meal with friends, a sponsored blindfold, a quiz at your local watering hole, a sports tournament, a murder mystery event or college casino night…
Just some of the endless ways you can bring hope to children with eye cancer, survivors and their families.
FUN and Rewarding
As an individual or group, organizing your own event will be very rewarding. Fundraising doesn’t have to involve lots of event planning though. If you’re slimming for summer or planning to walk the length of the country – give yourself added motivation by gathering sponsorship to support us!
Whatever you do, you will gain great satisfaction and enjoyment from doing it. Yourself. You will also touch the lives of children with cancer and their families by helping us bring them vital life and sight-saving care.
Three Golden Rules
Organizing an event can be a lot of work. Good planning is essential for success. Let us know what you are planning, and we can help guide you through the planning process. Request our fundraiser’s pack, for useful planning tips and resources.
Your safety is very important to us. Please talk with us before organizing an event, so we can help you ensure the safety of all organizers and participants.
Enjoy your FUNdrasing, whatever you are planning, and when you are done, be very proud. You will have helped bring essential care closer to every precious child fighting eye cancer!

It’s Crunch Time for kids with eye cancer!
Between chemotherapy treatments, Daisy and Rati loved to pass the time baking cookies at the Ronald McDonald House. They enjoyed eating them even more!
Daisy and Rati’s parents invite you to celebrate their daughters or a special person in your own life with this tasty pastime, and raise life-saving funds for kids with cancer at the same time.
You can host a Daisy Bake at any time of the year. Theme it or make it part of a special occasion. Kids love to decorate gingerbread men and ice cupcakes – and this makes a perfect party activity.
We especially encourage you to host a Daisy Bake on September 28th, 29th or 30th, the last few days of Childhood Cancer Month.
September 29th 2004 is the date on which a simple email from Rati’s desperate mother in Africa sparked an outpouring of love and financial gift from Daisy’s family that evolved into World Eye Cancer Hope. By coincidence, September 29th is the Feast of St Michael, Patron Saint of Sick Children, often celebrated with wreathes of Michaelmas Daisies. So we encourage you to host a Daisy Bake on this day to embrace children with eye cancer and bring hope to their families.
Easy to Organize
A Daisy Bake sale is very easy to organize. Our Fundraiser Pack includes a Daisy Bake Guide to help you plan, theme, personalize and host your event. We will work with you to make your Daisy Bake a very rewarding and successful venture.
Hope Has Never Tasted So Good!
“Rati taught us that children with eye cancer in the developing world urgently need help. Daisy’s courage helped Rati leave a legacy that has already saved other precious young lives. With your help, we can continue to make the girls’ dream a reality.“
This is crunch time for children with eye cancer. Every Daisy Bake you host brings us a step closer to the day when no child faces death or blindness due to poor access to retinoblastoma care!
