How to fundraise your way?

Pick a place, a time and an activity. Something you enjoy, then put a fundraising spin on it.

  • Sponsorship
  • Sell
  • Auction
  • Raffle
  • Pay to play
  • Ask for a contribution

It's that simple. Here are some ideas to get you thinking, they're easy to organise at work, school, home or in your community. 

  • Have coffee and wear crazy hair, ask for a suggested donation with each cuppa.
  • Run a healthy bake sale selling treats made by hand.
  • Dress up or down for day with a small donation to join in.
  • Organise an afternoon of fun and games in your local or nearby park.

Simple ideas that bring people together will help you start conversations about diabetes. And that's the most important thing about Diabetes Week.
