Celebrate the life of a loved one
From everyone at Redkite, we offer our sincere and genuine condolences. We can’t know the grief you are feeling, but are honoured that you would think of us at this incredibly sad time and choose to celebrate your loved one’s life by supporting Redkite.
When a child dies, it's one of the most devastating things that can happen to any family.
Special times such as birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas can be especially difficult. When someone you love passes away, you may feel like you want to donate to a charity that supported them or that they cared about in their memory.
Choosing how to fundraise in memory of a loved one is a very personal decision. Redkite will support and empower you to remember your loved one, however you see fit.
