Fundraising for charity can be a great way to make a difference to a cause that means something to you.
Whether you’re doing it alone, or with colleagues, friends or family, it can be fun, feel-good and very fruitful.
Is there a particular challenge you’ve always wanted to take on?
Maybe you’ve wanted to complete a skydive but have always been too scared?
Perhaps you’d like to run a marathon, but have been putting it off for years?
For many, fundraising can provide the perfect incentive to get on and face those fears! After all, no matter how extreme the task you set yourself, it’s sure to feel easier when you know you’re being sponsored for it.
With that said, it’s important to remember that fundraising can take many forms - it doesn’t have to be scary!
A sponsored silence can raise just as much as a hike up Mount Everest when you have a strong support network behind you. There needn’t be anything frightening about an event such as a village fête, plant sale or pub quiz, but organisers can still raise a significant amount of money for a charity of their choice, simply by tapping into the interests of their local community.
No matter how you choose to fundraise, you’re guaranteed to enjoy a sense of satisfaction like no other.
By raising funds, you’ll invariably raise awareness too, and for a small charity like ours, that publicity can be just as valuable. At MYTIME, we’re always looking for opportunities to fundraise ourselves, but the process can be time-consuming. When our followers take it upon themselves to raise funds on our behalf, they help us to help young carers, and we’re always incredibly grateful for that.
