Asking for donations instead of birthday, Christmas or wedding presents is an amazing way to transform lives. By raising just £150 you could provide 10 people with safe water for life.
Here are some tips to help

  • Let people know well in advance that you will be asking for donations instead of presents on this occasion
  • Set up a fundraising page online to make it easy for your friends and family to donate
  • Keep track of how much you’ve raised and share this with your friends on Facebook and twitter
  • Let us know that you’re giving up your celebration and when it is – we’d love to send you a card
  • If you’re holding an event to celebrate, just let us know as we can send you some great materials for the occasion
  • After your celebration, make sure you let everyone know how much was raised and how the money will transform lives
We can provide some great materials so do feel free to get in touch. And thank you!
