Fundraising
Fundraising can be great fun and a great way of raising awareness of the poverty in other parts of the world. There are loads of ways you can raise money, here are just a few fundraising ideas that you could use in your church or local community. Click on each idea for more info.
 
A Car Boot Sale
A car boot sale is very easily organized if you have access to a church or school car park. Simply place advertising posters in the local area with the time and location of the car boot sale and charge each car that comes 5 or 10 for a car and trailer etc. Get as many friends or relatives to bring a car as well and they can donate the money from the brick a brack that they sell from their cars.
A Table Quiz
If you can ask a local community group, church or school to lend you their hall then you will have an ideal setting for a table quiz. Approach 6 or 7 people you know and ask them to get together 5 of 6 friends each for their team and charge an admission fee of approximately 5 each. It can be a great nights fun and it is a good way of raising a couple of hundred pounds.
A Sponsored Event
A sponsored event is a very good way to raise a lot of money quite quickly. Instead of getting people to sponsor you in a certain event it is much more effective to organize a sponsored walk and encourage as many people as possible to take part. This way each person involved will then approach their circle of friends and therefore funds are being collected from a much larger population than just the people you know.
A Coin Chain
Approach a local primary school or an organization where there are a large number of people and ask them to start collecting their loose change. Set a date for a couple of months down the line and get everyone to bring their loose change along and pour it all out on the floor and see what length of a coin chain can be made by setting out each coin end to end. You could then organize the event to take place again in another couple of months and see if you can beat the previous chain. This is a great event for young children to take part in.
Bag Packing
This is a great idea for a church youth fellowship or a youth club to do. You could write a letter to a local supermarket requesting for a number of people to help at the checkout with packing peoples shopping. Bring a bucket with you to set at each checkout for people to throw their loose change into. You can collect quite a lot of money over a number of checkouts with bag packing for a couple of hours.

Fireside Quiz Sheets
It is quite easy to make up a list of approximately 20 general knowledge questions or uncompleted proverbs etc that people can fill in the answers to and post back to you. You could print out many of these sheets and sell them along with your friends for 1 each and offer a first prize of 10 - 20.
