Connecting with our friends, family and community is more important than ever right now. So is supporting urgent COVID-19 medical research that will have us connecting with other in our favourite cafes and restaurants sooner.

You can do both by participating in Cuppa for COVID.

It’s really easy. Here is how it works.

  1. Become a host by clicking the Fundraise button and setting up your personal fundraising page.
  2. Invite your friends to have a cuppa online with you, sharing the link to your page.
  3. Each person who has a cuppa with you donates $6 (or more if they wish). 
  4. Ask each participant to put a separate $6 aside in a special spot, so that when everything reopens you can have the catch up in person and support a local business.
As restrictions start to ease, why not support our amazing local businesses and grab a takeaway coffee or have a small catch up with friends, within the government guidelines of course, at a cafe that is open. 

All funds raised through this campaign go towards vital COVID-19 research at QIMR Berghofer.

***Great prizes are up for grabs for the Top Individual and Top Team fundraisers!***

You can become a host as an individual, or if you are part of a group or organisation, why not set up a page for your group to use.

You can have as many cuppa catch ups as you like. You can have as many friends at each online catch up as you wish. Throw in the cost of a muffin or cake too.

The more people and cuppas you have, the more dollars you raise, the more research that can be done.

Stay updated on the COVID-19 projects you will help make possible by visiting the QIMR Berghofer website.

If you are looking for a Cuppa for COVID host to donate to, click the Sponsor a Friend tab to find a specific person, or check out the Top Supporters tab and help someone reach their target. To make a general donation you can click the Donate button and help boost the overall total raised.

So be a hero for research, and a hero for humanity. Start right now!
