If there’s a charity close to your heart that you want to raise some funds for, or you just want to give back a little, there are a few things you can do. If you want to make sure you raise awareness by doing something unique, you can find inspiration here.
Host A Dance A Thon
Many people host sport-related things to raise money for charity; usually, things to do with football, biking, and so on. But what about a dance- a- thon? People can raise money and put the effort into dance as long as they possibly can. This is something that people of all ages can enjoy, so it could make a brilliant way to raise money.
Host Your Own Bake Off
Maybe you could host your own bake-off, taking cues from The Great British Bake Off (check it out online) and similar programs on TV. Things like this will gain a lot of exposure, especially if you put a lot of effort in and make a few humorous changes along the way. You don’t want it to be exactly the same.
Host A Karaoke Night
Whether you’re raising money for Jewish charities or mental health sufferers, a karaoke night could be just the thing you need to raise money. Karaoke nights usually get plenty of people turn up and even participate. Not everyone has to be a good singer. In fact, it’s probably funnier if they’re not. Maybe you could even turn it into a competition, like X factor or The Voice?
Host A Pub Quiz
A pub quiz could be a brilliant way to raise money for your chosen charity. All you need to do is find a pub that’s willing to participate. It shouldn’t be hard; after all, they’ll likely make some money from it too.
Host A Treasure Hunt
Maybe you could hide small things around the town and host a treasure hunt? You can then use things like riddles and clues to help people find their way to the treasure, with even more clues and riddles as the hunt goes on. This could be a really fun way for people to raise money and use many of their different problem-solving skills.
Do A Sponsored Silence
Do you talk a lot? Maybe one of your kids talks a lot. A sponsored silence could raise a lot of money! It’ll be difficult to remember not to use your voice, but a great accomplishment when you complete it.
If you have musical talent or one of your children has musical talent, busking could help them to raise lots of money for a great charity. Make sure you make a sign so people know where the money is going!
Attempt To Break A World Record
How about attempting to break a world record? You don’t actually have to break the record for this to be a lot of fun, not to mention a great team building activity if you get others involved.
