FAQs

You can still use a Sponsorship Book however online fundraising is the easiest way to raise funds and it helps us to keep our costs down! Scan the QR code on the front of your Sponsorship Book to connect with your school or church and activate your online fundraising profile. Don’t forget to head to the Apple Store or Google Play and download the World Vision NZ app to fundraise from your phone.  
If you sign up for an online fundraising page and are under 18 years old, we'll ask for your parent/guardian's email so we can let them know you've signed up. If you're the organiser of a school or church team, we encourage you to use your standard parental/guardian consent process. We have a parental consent form that you could ask your parents to sign (optional), it also contains some information for your parents about how the 40 Hour Famine works. 
We encourage all 40 Hour Famine participants to create an online fundraising page. Once you have a fundraising page you can link up with your mates, church group or sports team, and send requests to friends and family to ask for their support. It’s a really great way to share your 40 Hour Famine Challenge and fundraising goal with friends and family all around the country. 

If you’d like to door knock in your neighbourhood, then we’d recommend a parent or guardian joins you. 
The easiest way is to set up an online fundraising page or head to the App Store or Google Play and download the World Vision NZ app. Share your fundraising link with all  your friends and family (you could even ask them to send the link on to their friends and family, or people they know would also love to support you). 

Alternatively use a 40 Hour Famine Sponsorship book which you can get from your group organiser. If you’re not part of a team, you can order a Sponsorship book here.
