running a stall Local fairs and events are great places to raise funds, and to talk to people about Survival’s work. We can supply many of the things you will need to set up your stall. Do let us know what’s going on in your area.
netting a profit Selling things via Internet auction sites is both quick and easy. EBay also allows you to donate a percentage of profits from the things you sell directly to Survival.
holding a car boot sale Clear out your home of unwanted things and help raise vital funds.
Sponsored events know no limits! They can be anything from sitting in a bath full of beans to dizzying sky dives.
high-profile events Survival often has reserved places for supporters to take part in major events such as the London Marathon or Triathlon, details of which can be found on our website.
DIY Half the fun of a sponsored event can be in thinking up something original to catch people’s interest and make them want to dig deep. We’re sure you’ll come up with lots of ideas, but if you need any inspiration, give us a call!
JustGiving Setting up a website through www.justgiving.com can help you organise your event through the Internet. You can set up your page so that all donations go directly to Survival, and GiftAid can be claimed where applicable.
Turn your rubbish into cash! We are collecting old mobile phones, printer cartridges and obsolete currency. Contact Survival to arrange a free collection.
You’re no doubt a popular, fun-loving type, so why not use your suave sophistication and effortless charm to host a party or benefit for Survival?! By charging your guests a small fee, holding an auction or asking for donations you can help tribal peoples at the same time as upping your social status by showing everyone what a fabulous host you are – what could be better?
‘The journey is the reward.’
Over the years, a number of supporters have organised benefits for Survival – from weekend-long festivals with music and dance workshops, to theatre productions; from black-tie balls to readings in cafés.
If you are interested in organising a benefit and would like help, advice or support, please contact our events team who will be more than happy to get you started. We have some fantastic resources such as tribal food recipes and stories from around the world to inspire your event.
