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.

We know it’s not always easy to ask for money, even when it’s for a great cause! Check out famine.org.nz for loads of fundraising ideas and tips.
