Festive virtual fundraising ideas

Help grant wishes from home

Some of us are staying home right now, but that doesn’t mean we can't stay connected with friends, colleagues and family, and help raise money for wishes at the same time.

We’ve put together some festive fundraising ideas that can be done from the comfort of your own living room, bedroom, garden, or literally anywhere in your home.

Here is your step-by-step guide for anyone to get started

Step 1: Decide on your fundraising idea (keep reading for more ideas).

Step 2: Finalise when and where your event will take place. Remember to gain any permissions you may need.

Step 3: Personalise your online Fundraising page and share the link.

Step 4: Spread the word! Tag @MakeAWishUK and use #LightUpTheDarkness to join the community and see what others are up to.

Step 5: Pay in your fundraising to turn your pennies into wishes.
