Raise funds for Animals

Andrew Hedgman ran 200km in 2011 to raise money

Imagine being a hero for animals in need worldwide. By fundraising for WSPA, you can help to transform the lives of animals from all walks of life, from bears and elephants to whales, stray dogs and working horses. Together we can create a world where animals matter and cruelty ends.

The easiest way to fundraise is to do so online. We have partnered with Everyday Hero to provide a simple way for your friends, family and colleagues to support your fundraising efforts. Just click this link to create your own fundraising page now!

If you prefer collecting cash donations by selling chocolates, cupcakes, holding a trivia night etc., then please do not hesitate to contact us for ideas and information on how to organise this.

Another great way to fundraise is to take part in a public event like the City2Surf, the Gold Coast Airport Marathon or Run Melbourne. This means that you can focus on your fundraising and leave the organising to someone else. And, as you’ll see, using the Everyday Hero website makes the fundraising part easy too!

It's very easy to sign up:

Step 1.Register on the website for the run that you would like to participate in your city

Step 2. Create a fundraising page ( to collect donations for your efforts, and choose WSPA as your charity.

Step 3. Encourage your family and friends to sponsor you by emailing them the link to your fundraising page and plugging it on Facebook or Twitter.

Step 4. Start your training!!

It’s as simple as that. For more information on any of the events you can call WSPA on 1300 139 772 or email

Remember these are only some examples of events within Australia. If there isn’t one near you, why not get a group of friends together and create your own community event?
