Passionate about helping those in need but short on personal funds?
Have you ever been in the position where a cause touches your heart and you’re desperate to help, but your bank balance says otherwise? There is no need to feel defeated – unless you live alone on an island, you would be surprised at how much you can raise and how quickly by bringing on board the support of all those near to you.
Be brave and take on a sponsored challenge. It could be something as simple as a ‘giving up something you love’ challenge, e.g. give up sugar for a week (or longer!) – changing your health for the better too! Or something thrilling to get your pulse racing, such as one of the phenomenal lifetime challenges we regularly hold locally and abroad – mountain climbing, sky diving etc. email firstname.lastname@example.org
Holding a bake sale is a no brainer when it comes to raising money – home bakers are always willing to spend time and a couple of pounds worth of ingredients to share their talents. And everyone else loves eating homemade cake!
If you’re into sports, get everyone involved and organise a community football tournament with prizes/trophies, a video game tournament with friends or any sport you fancy!
Be ambitious – don’t be shy! Set yourself a high but realistic target and you will find that everyone is willing to help you reach it. Most people will be happy to support you with a nominal amount, especially when it’s so easy to donate online, and this will quickly snowball into a substantial figure that will make a huge difference to the lives of the beneficiaries.
