Fundraising Ideas

• Hold a Bake Sale at work or school, ask friends & colleagues to donate some cakes or savoury treats and sell them at lunchtime.
• Host a coffee morning at your house, invite friends, family and neighbours for a cuppa and a slice of cake. Why not hold a raffle, tombola, facepainting or a quiz too?
• Sell your stuff on eBay, create a listing on eBay with the 'advanced tool' and you can choose to donate between 10% and 100% of the final sale to a charity of your choice. Simply select Footprints Orphanage from the list.
• Sponsored walk/run/bike ride/skydive, challenge yourself and ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.
• Host a quiz night at your local pub, charge teams to enter and give some of the takings as a prize and donate the rest to Footprints.
• Ask for donations instead of gifts for Christmas, birthday's or instead of wedding presents.
• Dress down day at school or work. Pay £1 to ditch the uniform for the day, and dress down or dress up instead!
• Come along and experience life at Footprints with like-minded people, you can help them to improve their English and enrich their lives. There is always plenty to do - cooking, painting, growing food, tending the animals and of course playing with the children.
