Cuppa for a Cause

Cuppa for a Cause
Be a superhero. Make your next cuppa count.

Raise vital funds to support people with dementia in NZ by hosting a Cuppa for a Cause - as simple as putting the jug on and getting the bickies out. 

Just get together with your fellow superheroes and ask for a donation to help support people living with dementia.

It’s easy:

Step 1: Download our event pack and spread the word with social media content and posters

Step 2: Pick a date and share with friends, family and whānau. Create an event on Facebook, share via email or spread the word the old fashioned way, with some of our printed posters.

Step 3: Hang up your cape, pop the jug on and enjoy! 

Step 4: Make your donation with our simple online form, just remember to tick the option ‘I am giving for Cuppa for a Cause’. If you’d like to make your donation via online banking, bank deposit or by cheque, please reference ‘Cuppa for a Cause’.

If you’ve collected cash, simply count the coins, deposit the funds into an account and make your payment using the online form. Or you could pop by and drop it in to your local organisation.

Spread the word!

Time for a treat

We all love a treat with our cuppas from time to time. Look out for special packs of Countdown Shortbread and Lamingtons - 20 cents from each packet is donated to Alzheimers NZ. You can find the shortbread all year round and the Lamington appeal runs in July. Or, if you're a superhero baker, why not give one of these delicious Countdown recipes a go?
