Fundraising is fun:
- Sponsored events like walks, cycle runs and car washes always inspire those who perhaps are not able to cope with more strenuous pursuits and are great for involving the whole family or community.
- A swim-a-thon, where competitors are sponsored to swin a mile or similar distance.
- Coffee mornings, cake & candy and craft stalls where all sorts of products can be sold as people shop for Christmas, Easter and other special occasions.
- Non-uniform days, sponsored silences and the like always go down well in schools.
- Summer fêtes and other occasions like these allow a fun day out for the family to raise some funds too.
- Events where there is an element of competition for those involved can be effective too. Team events, where each team is required to raise a minimum contribution to the projected total often inspires a great competition.
- A Great British Bake off – judged then sell baking!
- Use Ebay and/or Gumtree to sell some of your unwanted items and donate the proceeds to Mission International.
- Car boot sales and jumble sales are usually well attended and can be a great way to raise some funds.
Ruby Wedding Fundraiser:
Here Chris & Heather Southwick raise £1868 when they asked people to donate to Mission International rather than buy gifts and cards for their 40th wedding anniversary celebrations.
Living below the line!
Peter ‘lived below the line’ (lived on £1.00 per day) for a week and raised £1,137.80 for Mission International’s Kenya Projects. The picture shows Kayole township where Peter spent some time as part of a Mission International team. Here he met some of the children for whom he lived below the line.
