How It Works
Celebrating a special occasion but have no need for any more ‘stuff’? Set up a fundraising page instead in a few easy steps, ask family and friends to donate in lieu of buying any gifts and you’ll be celebrating with meaning in no time.
1. Choose Your Occasion
Let your friends and family know what you’re celebrating!
2. Discover A Cause:
Which are you most passionate about?
Your fundraiser will invest in mothers and give them a hand up out of poverty. With small loans to start their own business, they’ll be able to provide food, clean water, proper shelter and education for their children.
Build Healthy Communities
Marginalised and vulnerable, families living in poor communities face immense challenges –illiteracy, life-threatening illness and child mortality. Your fundraiser will help strengthen communities in these areas, starting a ripple of transformation for the families that call them home.
Your fundraiser will empower men and women with new skills and confidence, helping them become leaders in their communities to bring about positive change. By investing in local leadership, you’ll be helping increase a community’s self-sufficiency for years to come.
In developing countries, families are often unable to access to the tools and resources they need to leave poverty behind because of barriers like geographic isolation. Your fundraiser will support innovations in areas such as technology, helping close these gaps.
When your goal is to give families a hand up out of poverty, you want to be sure that what you’re doing is making a real difference. By supporting initiatives that assess the impact of programs, your fundraiser will be helping refine and enhance the impact of your support.
3. Determine a Goal:
How much would you like to raise? Consider the kind of impact you want to have, the number of people you think will celebrate alongside you and how much they’re likely to contribute. Here are some options you might want to go for!
4. Share with Friends and Family:
Once you’ve set up your celebration page, share it via email and social media with friends, family and others who you think want to celebrate alongside you!
