Fundraise as an Individual

Are you passionate about keeping children safe? Do you have a great idea, talent or skill? YOU can make a difference with these charity fundraising ideas.

Solo FundraisingIf your hidden talent is baking, why not heat up the oven and hold a morning tea? If you’re motivated to get fit, why not train for a triathlon? If you’re ready to take a plunge, why not complete a sky diving challenge? By harnessing the support of your family, friends and community you can make a positive impact in the lives of children affected by violence and bullying. 

These charity fundraising ideas can be FUN and EASY. Simply choose something you love and get your networks to sponsor you by making a donation.
