Make emergency aid possible. Sign up as a volunteer box collector or digital fundraiser.

  • Box collectors collect donations in the streets or take a collection box e.g. to their workplace. 
  • Digital fundraisers share an emergency aid collection online or set up their own collection. 

Signing up does not bind you to anything. You will receive information during disaster situations and on Hunger Day when your help is needed.

Sign up to collect donations

A celebration coming up? Ask your friends and family to donate to a cause important to you. A dedicated collection is also a beautiful way of honouring the memory of a loved one.

Set up an online fundraiser

Share the online collection on social media and via email.

Companies can set up a collection for their staff or cooperation partners, too.

Collect using bank transfers

If online collecting seems too technical, you can also collect the traditional way by directing funds to the Red Cross bank account. Follow these steps:

1. Provide the bank account number of the collection of your choice to anyone who wishes to congratulate you on your special day

  • The Finnish Red Cross’s Disaster Relief Fund: OP FI52 5000 0120 4156 73
  • Support the activities of the Red Cross in Finland: OP FI29 5000 0120 4156 99

2. Ask your guests to enter the name of the special day in the message field, e.g. ‘Bob’s Birthday, 60 years.’ 

If you wish to receive a list of participants, let us know about your special day donation before your guests make donations.

Provide information about your special day using this online form so that we can monitor the participants and post you a summary. We will provide the list and the total amount of donations via email approximately two weeks after your event. 

We are happy to accept donations of undamaged clothing and goods.

  • Take your donations to Kontti stores.
  • See if there are any Red Cross second-hand shops where you live.
  • You can also make clothes or blankets yourself.
