How to win money while supporting some great causes

Help your wallet and your conscience with these ways to win cash, cars and holidays while helping some worthy causes — plus some other great initiatives to get behind

Competitions are a great way to throw your hat in the ring for some amazing prizes — but there are also some great initiatives around these days working hard for good causes.

It’s pretty simple to get involved and there are often options to be in the running for  awesome prizes — from huge wins like a beachfront house, to more moderate prizes like cash gift cards – you’ll feel better knowing your win is also helping a charitable cause.

The Today Show rounded up five competitions and initiatives you can get involved in now.


RSL Art Union Prize Home Lottery

How does a multi-million dollar beachfront house or an apartment property portfolio sound as a return for a $5 ticket? These are the kind of prizes you can take away the RSL Art Union Prize Home Lottery!

And while a prize like this would give your bank account a massive boost, the money raised through this organisation goes to a great cause supporting veterans by providing accommodation and a range of supports such as financial assistance and advocacy and welfare services.

How it works?

You can purchase tickets through the website ranging from $30 to $75 to go into the prize draw advertised online.


Play For Purpose

An online charity lottery with more than 11,000 prizes up for grabs — Play For Purpose also supports a range of good causes. Using their digital platform as a cost effective way to raise money for community organisations while giving supporters the chance to win some awesome prizes.

How it works?

Tickets range from $15 – $15 and you select your chosen charity to support. Your funds will go towards that charity and there is a guarantee of $1,000,000.00 worth of prizes up for grabs.  

Stay Kind

Launched by the Thomas Kelly Foundation, this is an admirable cause that is driving awareness around the subject of youth suicide. Stay Kind was set up in memory of Stuart Kelly, the brother of Thomas Kelly, and aims to provide support to vulnerable youth. You can get behind this very worthy cause by purchasing a ticket in their raffle.

How it works?

Head over to the website at Stay Kind and you can purchase a ticket for $10, 7 for $50 or 15 for $100 to be in the running to win four prizes – one being a Mazda2 Neo.

Love Another Mother – Two Good

A project that supports mothers who have fled domestic violence — Love Another Mother — Two Good creates a way to purchase something for yourself that also benefits victims of domestic violence. You can purchase something for yourself like a hand moisturiser or body wash and by doing this you are making a donation of a second pack for a mother in a shelter as the profits fund the second pack.

How it works?

Head to the project page here and you can select an amount to donate or select one of their packs ranging from $37 to $560.

 Starlight Foundation
