Live Simply

Live Simply

Live simply, so that others may simply live.

-Mahatma Gandhi

Lent Event is 40 days of giving, learning and acting in solidarity for positive change. Put your faith into action this Lent and champion the work of UnitingWorld and our partners Leadership and child protection, overcome poverty and stand with our Pacific neighbours. Sign up as an individual or as part of a congregation or organisation. 


Decide on an activity to give up (or take up) for 40 days eg, takeaway coffee, social media.

Set your fundraising goal to reach during the period of Lent.

Ask people to sponsor you to meet your goal OR set aside what you save from going without.

Pledge to live simply.
It’s as simple as entering a few details…

How could you live more simply and raise money for projects that end poverty and build hope?

  • Give up coffee? Over 40 days, you’d save $180 to donate to provide food supplements for children in Timor Leste.
  • Run a cake stall and give to Timor Leste’s most vulnerable children.
  • Give up takeaway lunches? Bring your lunch from home for 40 days and you could donate $200 a week toward clean water education that saves lives.
  • Hold a Trivia Night and support Timor Leste’s Sunday School teachers.
  • Halve your food budget for 40 days and help shape Timor Leste’s future leaders.
