Someone Special
Discover our new fundraising tool

Someone Special is a fundraising tool that, unlike any other fundraising website, is designed to help your fundraisers at a difficult time in their own life or the life of their loved one. More than just 'in memory' fundraising, it's a unique tool that can be used by fundraisers who are in treatment or recovery themselves, or by fundraisers on behalf of their loved ones.

It offers a sensitive way to give online when someone is fundraising:

  • In memory of a loved one.

  • Through treatment - if they or a loved one are undergoing medical treatment.

  • In recovery - as a celebration of recovery from illness or injury.

3 ways subheader

1. In memory

Someone Special offers a simple, sensitive way for people to fundraise in memory of a loved one, for the charities that helped them. Your fundraisers can honour their loved one's courage, celebrate their memory, or even ask supporters to donate money instead of sending flowers.

2. Through treatment

Someone Special lets your fundraisers either raise money in support of a loved one undergoing medical treatment, or raise money if they are going through treatment themselves.

3. In recovery

Someone Special allows your fundraisers to celebrate their own or a loved one's recovery from illness or injury, and to give something back to the charities that supported them on their journey back to health.
