The sound of donation tins rattling will be a little different this year as the annual Good Friday Appeal fundraiser goes digital.
In the current coronavirus situation there will be no one at intersections or friendly volunteers going door to door. Instead, the tradition is to be kept alive online by bringing the tin shake into people's homes.
From today, Victorians can donate online to the "Virtual Tin Shake" so the Good Friday Appeal can still benefit from the generosity of people across Victoria.
Donations can go towards a town or area goal, as well as the overall tally.
The initiative came after concerns from Country Fire Authority members who cannot fundraise as normal.
Good Friday Appeal director Anne Randall said the new-look fundraiser would "support all those in regional areas who would normally donate by putting coins in a Good Friday Appeal collection tin".
"We really value the enormous contribution everyone makes to the health and wellbeing of our children," she said.
