Not Another Fancy Candle
Help search for a loved one, gone missing in disaster or war
So you gift them a candle: cute. They lift it to her nose... but it’s not the notes of bergamot and mahogany they inhale. It’s the overwhelming scent of a gift that says “I didn’t know what else to get you.”
Not Another Fancy Candle can help Red Cross search for a missing loved one, lost in the chaos of war, conflict, disaster or migration. It draws on the power of the Red Cross network, which globally can access refugee camps, detention centres, and war zones where others can’t go. Be the one who helps find the answers that make families feel whole again, and keep that fire alive in your relationship too.
Thank you! This gift will support our work with migrants experiencing vulnerability, helping them make ends meet, be safe, and stay connected to those they love. It is also tax-deductible.
Your gift is tax-deductible in Australia.
After you check out, we’ll send you a receipt in your name – hold on to it for when tax-time comes around. Note: This email receipt will be separate to the email containing your gift card.
Your donation will be used where it’s needed most.
By purchasing this gift, you are giving a donation to a specific area of our work: services for migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, or our disaster relief work overseas; helping Australians endure and recover from a fire, flood or storm, or supporting people who are isolated and seeking a brighter, safer life.
We will use your donation to help the most vulnerable people in the most effective ways. If we receive contributions in excess of the needs in your chosen category, we will use it in other categories represented by other charity gifts.
Up to 10% of your donation will go towards essential administrative and operational costs.
