Get together and make that Cuppa count!

Hosting a Cuppa is a fun and easy way to raise money for Heartkids.  Invite your friends and family to join you for a tea party and make a real difference in the fight against childhood heart disease.

Running throughout August and September, Cuppa for HeartKids is a national community fundraising campaign to help fund essential support and life-saving research for children with heart disease and their families.

HeartKids provides lifelong support for those with childhood heart disease and their families. We also fund life saving research, advocate and inform.

Great Reasons to Register

  • A great excuse to get together with friends, family or work colleagues to raise funds and awareness for some very special children
  • Host your tea party any time during August and September - you are not tied down to one date
  • Hold your tea party in any location that suits you - at home, at work or your favourite café or park
  • Get creative with your event and make it even more fun for your guests
  • Use our online fundraising tool to involve friends and family who can’t make it to the event but still want to participate by donating
  • The host of the Cuppa that raises the most funds across Australia will WIN a 500$ Woolworths gift card, kindly donated by HeartKids Australia's Major Partner, Woolworths.

Support Cuppa
for HeartKids!

The funds you raise from your Cuppa event goes towards supporting families who have a child with heart disease and research into reducing the incidence of Childhood Heart Disease (CHD), and decreasing the mortality rates for Childhood Heart Disease.

So join the fun by hosting a morning tea and provide valuable assistance for a great cause.
