It’s often hard to know how to commemorate a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away. Donating to Parkinson’s research in their memory is a positive and lasting way of celebrating their life, while helping to raise vital funds for Parkinson’s research.
At Shake It Up Australia we guarantee that your donation will make a lasting memory for your loved one with 100% of all funds being directed into the world’s best Parkinson’s research right here in Australia, targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately a cure.
Making a gift in lieu of flowers?
If you would like friends and mourners to make a donation to Parkinson’s Research in lieu of flowers, you may wish to include this request in your loved one’s death notice. Please consider the following wording:
‘Donations in lieu of flowers to Shake It Up Australia Foundation, www.shakeitup.org.au
You can also send them the direct link for our donation page which will allow them to enter the details of the person they are making the donation in memory of.
Shake It Up can also provide donation envelopes to be available at the funeral. These can be sent directly to you or to the nominated funeral home.
When you make an In Memory donation,Shake It Up will send a letter of acknowledgement to the bereaved family to let them know that you have made a gift to help cure Parkinson’s.

Create an On-line tribute page
We are also able to create an on-line memorial page which will allow you to share photo’s, videos and precious memories with family and friends. This can be for when a loved one passes or on a special occasion such as their birthday or Christmas.
To enable us to create the page for you if you could just share a paragraph about your loved one and provide us with some photo’s then we can take care of the rest. We will then forward you the link which you can send to family and friends with a message that they can honour their memory by making a gift to Parkinson’s research.
