Canberra Day Appeal - Raise your hands for Canberra!

There are so many worthy charities, it can be tough deciding who to donate to. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to donate to them all? With your help, the Canberra Day Appeal will see over 250 local charities and organisations access much-needed funds for the essential work they do, such as:

  • Helping the 1 in 200 people who are homeless (second highest rate in Australia)
  • Providing support services to the 1 in 4 young people facing mental health problems
  • Offering a helping hand to the 1 in 6 young people with caring responsibilities
  • Assisting the 1 in 25 people with a severe or profound disability to live a full life


These are just a few of the vulnerable people living in our community who are supported by our local charities and community organisations.
Together, we can support over 250 organisations to continue to assist Canberra’s most vulnerable people.

We are calling on 100,000 people to raise their hands for Canberra and donate $10 each to raise $1,000,000 by Canberra Day 2020.

By supporting the Canberra Day Appeal, you will be helping many charities and community organisations through Hands Across Canberra (HAC). HAC is a local not-for-profit organisation who creates pathways and connections, joining those who have funds and time to donate with those who need the assistance. With your support HAC can continue to join Canberra's hands together.
