Top 5 fundraising ideas for 40 Hour Famine!

Stuck for fundraising ideas? Want to smash your goal or set an even bigger one? Check out our Top Five Fundraising ideas to help put the FUN back in fundraising (ok that’s terrible, we’re sorry):

IDEA #1 - Do something you're good at! 


Are you a sneaky virtuoso? A low key Michelangelo in the making? Busk or sell your artwork with the money going to your 40 Hour Famine fundraising! You could even have a talent, music or art show at school and charge a gold coin for entry!

IDEA #2 - Bakesale! 


How good are cookies? Pretty good. How good are cakes? Also pretty great. How good are cookies and cakes that you get to eat for an amazing cause? Only the greatest thing ever. Kiss that calorie guilt goodbye and get in the kitchen to help make some amazing goodies for your own 40-HOUR BAKESALE. (Note: Charity cakes are negative calories anyway, it’s science.)

IDEA #3 - Sell, sell, sell!


Drowning in a bunch of stuff you don’t want? Is your room one step away from an Ep of Hoarders? Don’t just throw it out! Have your very own, 40 HR Fundraising sale! Grab old books, clothes, shoes, bags and anything that you no longer need and put it all together for an amazing garage sale. Don’t forget to let people know all proceeds will be going to Child Friendly Spaces for refugee kids in Jordan!

IDEA #4 - Dog wash (...or car wash)!


Love dogs? Of course you do! Why not set up a super fun dog wash in the local park or in your street! You can also do a car wash if you’re not so keen on the fur! Remember to stay safe, keep all dogs on leads and keep everyone away from any traffic or hazards! Make sure owners are present and that all dogs are friendly and relaxed! Definitely one to have an adult on board for but a lot of fun for a great cause!

IDEA #5 - Photobooth!


Ok we love this one! Set up a photo booth at your school with some props! There are heaps of props available for FREE on the net that are super easy to download and print! You can get one of your mates to take the snaps or see if the art department at school wants to help out! Charge a gold coin donation for a few snaps and let everyone know the profits are going to your 40 Hour Famine fundraising and Child Friendly Spaces in Jordan!
