In Lieu of a Gift
Lots of people feel that they already have more than enough possessions, especially as they get older. And it can be hard to think what to give those people who seem to have everything they need! When faced with the inevitable challenge of finding the perfect gift for an event or special occasion, why not make a donation to VEPC? You have an opportunity to spread joy and kindness!
Why not ask your friends and family to make a donation to the Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson's Centre in lieu of gifts on a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or even Christmas or your wedding?
For children, birthday donations are the perfect way to introduce young people to the practice of giving to charity from an early age. Over time, philanthropy will become one of the best habits that stays with them for life. Sometimes referred to as a "No-Gift Birthday Party", the party invitation usually includes a small line that says “no gifts please" and indicates that the hosts of the party are collecting donations for the Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson's Centre (VEPC) to support, for example, epilepsy education. Parents who are thinking about having a no-gift birthday party should talk it over carefully with their children before committing. The goal behind a no-gift birthday party is to get a group of kids together to celebrate their friendship.
For adults, a donation to VEPC is the perfect way to mark a birthday, anniversary, or wedding gift. It is as easy as indicating on the event invitation something like, "In lieu of gifts, we ask that you donate to the Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson's Centre in our name."
If you would like to celebrate the milestones in your life by helping to support people with epilepsy and/or Parkinson's, we can provide pledge forms and envelopes so that you can send these out with invitations or give them out at your party.
Download our gifts form
We will thank everyone who makes a donation in lieu of gifts for their kindness and generosity, provided they mention your name or send their donation in with the special donation form.
We will also let you know how much has been raised by your special occasion and thank you for choosing the Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson's Centre as a beneficiary.
