Please beware of scammers
Sadly there are sham websites that purport to take donations for charities when they are not authorised to do so. They can look quite sophisticated and often have taken logos and images from the real charities’ sites. Where we’ve been aware of them, we’ve reported them, but they can pop up again and if they’re based outside Australia local agencies can’t take action against them.
No other website is authorised by us to collect donations on our behalf. Note that some trusts operate such that you can recommend where you’d like your donation to go but they may not be obliged to direct your donation to the charity of your choice.
If you want to support us – and please do! – or any other charity, please consider carefully before donating online to ensure your donation is going to your chosen charity and not a scammer. We thank everyone who generously supports us 🙂
