Millions of people around the world are deprived of their human rights. They are discriminated against, wrongly imprisoned, tortured and killed. They are prevented from informing and expressing themselves, meeting freely or practicing their beliefs. They are deprived of food and water, health care, education, work or a home.

These individuals are deprived of human dignity by governments, by big corporations, by armed groups and even by family members. The chains are visible and obvious, other times they are secret and insidious. This injustice must stop.

Ordinary people working together have the power to stop it.

What kind of fund raising can I do?

Anything you want!

Anyone can fund raise for Amnesty and using a special occasion is a great way to do it.

Weddings

Celebrate your wedding with us in a very special way! Start your life together knowing your choices will continue to defend human rights around the world.

What better way to celebrate your Big Day, than with a donation to Amnesty International Australia? These days we don't have such a great need for a canteen of cutlery, or three toasters. What we do need is a world where all humans are treated equally.Make a difference today, ask your friends, family and wedding guests to make a donation to Amnesty International Australia in lieu of a wedding gift.

Birthdays

Instead of another pair of socks, ask your friends and family to make a donation to Amnesty International Australia in lieu of your usual birthday gift.

Together we can work towards a world that says no to torture, where every child has the right to an education and a safe passage to school, and where you are free to speak up for your beliefs, without fearing imprisonment or abuse.

Other special occasions

Other ideas for special occasions you can fund raise in honour of include:

  • anniversaries
  • birth of a child.
