FUNDRAISING:
AT SCHOOL

Your kids can fundraise from school, too. We always love to see youngsters Choosing Love and raising funds for a good cause. Here are some tips to get started:

  • Own-clothes day: ask your kids’ school to make Help Refugees the charity of choice for a good old-fashioned mufty day with an optional donation. This could also be combined with a Bake Sale or Raffle with parents.
  • Bake sale: our friends at Cookie Girl have all the know-how to help you create the perfect bake sale. Visit the site here for more info and to download the bake4refugees pack
  • Talent show: give the kids chance to show off their budding talents with a show where parents are invited to attend for a small optional donation. Again, this could be combined with a raffle or auction to raise some extra funds
  • Ask your kids’ school to make Help Refugees their chosen charity for the term or the year. We can help them organise awareness-raising assemblies, collections of the most-needed items and as many of the above suggestions as you like!

Here are some questions and pointers to help you start to plan your sponsored challenge:

1. FORM A COMMITTEE

If you think you’d like to do a fundraiser at your child’s school you could start by getting a group or committee together to pool ideas and help organise and host the event. A combination of parents and teachers is great (and kids of course, if that suits you).

2. COMBINE FUNDRAISING WITH LEARNING AND A COLLECTION!

At school ideally you could combine fundraising events with awareness raising sessions for the kids. You could run these yourselves or contact us as we may be able to recommend a representative in your local area who could come in. Use case studies from our fundraising pack to bring the stories of refugee children to life. You could also hold a collection of the most needed items and either take them to a local warehouse or, better still, bring them to us in Calais directly.
