Sure, you can do­nate your pocket money to char­ity, and that’s AMAZ­ING. But wouldn’t it be great to rope in your whole school or net­ball club? En­cour­age your class­mates to get in­volved! Here’s a list of awe­some fundrais­ing ideas, or try brain­storm­ing your own…

 Host a cake stall

Ask your friends to make cakes, slices and bis­cuits. Sell them at lunch time or be­fore your soc­cer match.

 Plan a crazy sock day

Choose a day for your whole school to wear crazy, colour­ful, mis-match­ing socks. Ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pates brings in a gold coin do­na­tion.

 Ar­range a fun run

Get your class­mates to dress up and jog around the school oval 3 times. Ev­ery­one in­volved should col­lect spon­sors be­fore the day.

Step 3: Stay in­volved

Make helping a reg­u­lar part of your sched­ule. There are lots of small ways you can con­tinue to sup­port your favourite cause. You could write let­ters to your lo­cal pa­per or MP. You could share news with your class at school. You could even vol­un­teer your time to plant a tree, walk a dog or stick up posters.
