Fundraising can be a walk in the park (literally), and anyone can do it. Whether it be selling some old shirts or going for a really long walk, anything that gets people involved and excited can raise funds for the Uprawr Mental Health Foundation. So here are some easy peasy (and some maybe not so easy peasy) ideas to get you started:
1 – Have a jumble sale. Got some old toys or clothes that don’t fit anymore? Get rid. This way, you get more free space AND you’re raising funds for your favourite charity (us).
2 – Do a sponsored walk/jog/run. Just get your daily steps in, doesn’t have to be 100 miles (although that would be pretty impressive), just has to be anything that people will support you in doing.
3 – Shave your head. Come on, you’ve definitely thought about it, we all have. Well what better reason to do it? Get your mates to chip in and raise some cash to finally shave off that mane.
4 – Grow a beard. Do it. Everyone looks good with a beard. How long can it get? Let’s find out, this is all part of the fun.
5 – Sponsored car wash. Get your bikini on and scrub some cars. It works in the movies so obviously it works in real life. And yes fellas, this also applies to you, get the bikini on.
6 – Kick a bad habit. Want to quit smoking or have an annoying habit your friends all hate? I’m sure they’d pay you to stop it.
7 – Go skydiving. Think of the adrenaline you’ll get from jumping out of a plane for charity. Obviously so worth it.
8 – Try break a world record. Could be fun, could be disappointing. Who cares? It’s all in the name of charity.
9 – Have a bake sale. We all did it in school so you’ve got the experience. Crack out Grandma’s famous cookie recipe and get on it.
10 – Climb a mountain. Obviously don’t do anything too crazy, but climbing a mountain is a great way for people to sponsor you, and why not do it in support of your favourite charity?
So there you go. 8 easy peasy(ish) fundraising ideas to get you started. All donations received go 100% towards the Uprawr Mental Health Foundation to help us provide and improve our free counselling services. What ideas can you come up with?
