The 2020 Challenge

Can you raise £2,020 in 2020 to grant magical wishes?

Using your contacts - colleagues, Facebook Friend list, your kids’ schools, choirs, religious groups, sports clubs, dog walking companions – the more the merrier - can you take on the 2020 challenge?

Whether your neighbour donates £5 or you ask a company to contribute £500 to your total, everyone can make a difference to your £2,020 target.

Don’t worry – you don’t need to do it alone. You can do it...

With support from your family and friends

Why not take on a year long sponsorship challenge together, or ask a friend each month to support you for 30 days?

By encouraging your colleagues to join in at work

Do a 5km fun run, hold dress down Fridays each month for a very kind donation, or even ask your company to match your fundraising.

By making your own team from your surrounding networks

You know better than anyone about your local community, so tap into those networks and see if you can do it together!

OR, we can create a regional team for you to get involved in

From Bolton to Belfast, Dundee to Derby, Canterbury to Cardiff. If you want to give it a go – so will someone else!

It's your choice

Do one big community event to raise £2,020, 12 little things to raise £170 per month, or take on a sponsorship challenge and have people pledge to bring you to your total. Here are a few ideas to get you up and running:

Join in January

Hold a raffle with unwanted Christmas presents

Funding February

Nominate Make-A-Wish for Asda or Waitrose green token scheme or place fundraising tins around your community.

March Madness

Set yourself a silly challenge like sitting in a bath of beans or dying your hair a crazy colour in return for donations.

Amazing April

Hold a community Easter Egg hunt, or celebrate World Wish day on 29th April with a collection.

Marvelous May

Hold a Wear What You Wish day.

What is this?

Jazzy June

Do a sing-a-thon, or organise a flash mob!

Joyful July

Provide Ice Lollies in the (hopefully) hot weather and ask for a donation.

Odd October

Make spooky Halloween treats.

No No November

Give up your favourite treat before Christmas.

Decorative December

Ask your local garden centre, or office to have a Wish Tree.

Throughout the year, have a collection box for your spare change, place up to 3 tins around your area, hold a birthday fundraiser, ask your local rotary club if they can support in any way, or if you want to push the boat out, hold a gala dinner to raise your total all in one go!
