You can fundraise doing anything. A personal challenge, a social event or a simple raffle draw can all raise funds for those facing poverty.
1. Decide what you want to do.
Is it time to get fit? Set a target and ask your friends to sponsor you along the way.
Lent is a great time to give up sugar, coffee, alcohol or any other daily indulgence. Your friends and colleagues can encourage you by sponsoring you along the way.
Use your head – shave it, colour it or cut off those precious locks. Set your up your page and let everyone know why you’re fundraising.
Got too much stuff? Why not hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds to Project Compassion.
Do you bake like a master chef? Set up a cake stall at work, school or church. Your tasty creations can be so much more delicious when they contribute to Project Compassion.
One of the easiest and simplest ways to raise funds is to run a raffle. Ask a local business to donate a prize and sell tickets to your sporting group, parish or colleagues. Your fundraising page is a great way to promote the raffle and bank your funds.
Get Your Friends Together
If you can entertain people, then fundraising is a cinch. Host a dinner, morning tea, movie night – whatever you like! You can use your online page to send out invitations and collect donations.
