Gifts given in memory or celebration are a meaningful way to honour a person’s life and interests.
In memory of a loved one
Traditionally people send flowers to pay their respects to a lost loved one, however you may wish to choose a lasting tribute in the form of a charitable donation.
Prior to her passing, Michelle and her husband Edgar had decided that asking loved ones to make a donation to MSA research at NeuRA in her memory was really important.
“Michelle strongly supported research. When the time came, we chose to support NeuRA. Knowing that important MSA research is happening right here in Australia gives me hope for others in the future, albeit now too late for Michelle.”
In celebration of a special day
Donations in lieu of gifts for a birthday, anniversary or other event is a wonderful way to celebrate and acknowledge a cause close to your heart.
Maria Venuti, a close friend of Jeanne Little, when celebrating her 75th birthday chose to support the Jeanne Little Alzheimer’s Research Fund at NeuRA.
“It is so difficult seeing my vibrant, beautiful friend, with a heart of pure gold, not being able to even recognise me when I visit. I feel blessed to have this major celebration of my 75th birthday, surrounded by my family and friends and so it just felt right to mark this occasion with a huge party that would also raise funds for The Jeanne Little Alzheimer’s Research Fund at NeuRA.”
