As we all adjust to spending more time at home due to coronavirus, here are some great home-based fundraising ideas to alleviate the boredom and to keep funding Gene People’s vital helpline.
- Stairway challenge – which mountain will you climb? Choose a summit, work out how many times you need to climb your stairs and then plan the time needed to complete your challenge. Set a fundraising target and then create a fundraiser on Facebook or JustGiving. Don’t forget to tell everyone you are doing this whilst at home – the cheers and donations will come flying in
- Virtual Jam for Genes – if you have a musical talent, take it online with a virtual gig through Facebook or Instagram live. Set up a JustGiving page so that those who join you can donate.
- Coronavirus ‘swear’ jar – put £1 in the jar whenever your use the word ‘coronavirus’ and donate the collection to Gene People
- EBAY denim upcycle sales. Got some old denims? jazz-up your denims with pom-poms and patches and sell them on Ebay. Donate the money to Gene People.
