Tell your story


Your story will light up Australia and shine a light on blood cancer.

When you share your story – it shows others bravely facing blood cancer that they are not alone.

Your story is also the most powerful way to encourage donations that will help families doing it tough through blood cancer.

Fundraise for your lantern

We still have a limited number of lanterns in stock!

When you raise or donate over $100 to your personal fundraising page, your lantern will be sent to you via express post.

We will continue sending lanterns right up until Thursday, 1st October 2020 so it can reach you in time for the virtual ceremony.

Most people proudly raise $350 for Light the Night.

In a time when families facing blood cancer need the Leukaemia Foundation most – COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the donations needed to help families who are doing it tough through treatment.

Your fundraising will make a wonderful difference!

Plan your event

How you choose to host your Light the Night event at home is limited only by your imagination...

You can host a fancy dinner party, a casual sunset barbeque with close mates or a cosy twilight picnic in the backyard. It’s entirely up to you!

As long as you have an internet connection, a screen and a light to shine – you can join this special moment.
