Don’t know Do you want to help others? read this… where to begin? Well,
Step 1: Choose a cause
What’s important to you? Is there a disease you want to fight? Are you passionate about animals? Do you belong to a family of eco warriors? Find an issue that speaks to you and make it your focus.
Can’t decide who to help? Start with one of these charity events that’s coming up soon. � Red Nose Day – June 29 � National Tree Day – July 29 � Jeans For Genes Day – August 3 � International Orangutan Day – August 19 � RSPCA Cupcake Day – August 20
Step 2: Put the FUN in fundraising
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.
