Like to raise money for charity and see how far your collection goes to help those in need?
Here's some suggestions and special tips on how to fund-raise.
Organise a weekend bazaar/fair at your local community centre:
These are usually very successful if done the right way. Charge 50c entrance or even free, set up tables & chairs for stalls and ask family/friends to volunteer their skills (e.g. face-painting, henna, food & refreshments, art, photography, make-up, book-selling, joke-telling, etc..).
TIP: PUBLICISE THE EVENT, ESPECIALLY IN THE LOCAL AREA. WE CAN GIVE YOU THE HELP YOU NEED TO ACHIEVE THIS
Request a non-uniform day at school or college:
Each student pays €1 to be able to attend in non-uniform.
TIP: BE SURE TO ARRANGE THIS IN ADVANCE WITH YOUR TEACHERS THOUGH!
Sell Your unwanted stuff:
We all have things we own that we don't really need. So sell it on E-bay and use the profit to support an orphan or give an orphan a school kit! You can also have garage sales, car boot sales or cake sales and invite your family & friends. One of our volunteers raised €600 in three hours at a car boot sale in Tallaght this year!
TIP: THERE ARE REGULAR CAR BOOT SALES IN MOST TOWNS AND SUBURBS AROUND THE COUNTRY
Facebook or other social media
Raise money on-line by letting all your contacts know that you're collecting money for a specific cause & how they can help out & be a part of the great cause.
Make a trip:
Arrange a trip for your family & friends, your school or college to Dublin Zoo, Bray Sea Life, outdoor activity centres, etc. And ask each person to give €5 extra for an orphan. The further the trip from home, the little extra you can charge. E.g. Galway, Cork charge €10 extra per person.
Tip: Look out for cheaper theme park entrance tickets or train fares on-line!
Donate for free:
By getting involved in fundraising schemes you can help raise vital funds for Human Appeal International at absolutely no cost to you! Recycle your phone, search on-line, sell unwanted items on Ebay or donate shares - it all helps to raise money.
