Mad Tea Party 2019 resources Mad Tea Party 2019 is coming! Register your Mad Tea Party fundraising campaign today and help children beat cancer. Mad Tea Party, or Безумное Чаепитие, is an annual charity initiative held on the 26th of November to mark Podari Zhizn's birthday. The idea behind Mad Tea Party is to raise a cup of tea, or coffee, to Podari Zhizn’s achievements and support children with cancer. This year we are aiming to raise as much as possible with your support. Set up a fundraising page with us, host your own Mad Tea Party for friends, families, and colleagues around the 26th of November, collect donations and give our little patients in Russian hospitals a better chance to recover from cancer. Do not forget to spread the word and share you Mad Tea Party pictures on social media with #madteaparty #безумноечаепитие #giftoflife hashtags to appear in our Instagram Stories. Enjoy your tea and make it count. Spasibo!

Gift of Life supporters alone raised over £10,000 with just over 20 big and small tea parties from London to Paris to Tokyo, and back via the USA in 2015. The year 2016 was truly outstanding: Gift of Life supporters alone gathered over £25,400 through more than 30 tea parties in London, Leeds, Oxford, Berlin, New York, and other cities. The overall donation Mad Tea Party was over £68,000 including parties in Russia. In 2017 donations to Mad Tea Party appeal exceeded £10,000 - with the money mostly raised at the private Afternoon Tea with Princess Catherine Galitzine, our patron.
