There are lots of ways that you as an individual can help Honeypot. Whether your donation is large or small, monthly or as a one off contribution, you can rest assured that you will be making a life changing difference to the children we support.
Holding an event for Honeypot:
If you would like to fundraise as an individual, we recommend you look through our top tips below. Please get in touch and let us know about your event, we’d love to help you get started!
1. Set a goal of how much money you’d like to raise. This doesn’t have to be thousands of pounds- remember, just £20 is enough to buy a Christmas present for a Honeypot Child.
2. Decide what you’d like to do to raise it! Possibilities are endless: host a party or BBQ, have a quiz or film night, sell second-hand books or toys, have a cake sale stall, get sponsored for giving something up…
3. Tell us! We can support you by promoting your event and provide you with resources, such as banners, leaflets, collecting tins, badges, balloons, and possibly even a visit from Bumble!
4. Tell your family and friends! The generosity of those closer to you helps set a precedent for other donations.
5. Embrace social media and make the most of JustGiving, Facebook and Twitter to help build awareness and advertise your event.
6. If appropriate, ask your local businesses to support you with donations of raffle prizes or help sell tickets.
7. See if you can get your fundraising matched; many organisations offer a matched giving for charitable fundraising
8. Have fun!
