There are many ways to become involved with Global Gardens of Peace including holding your own fundraising activity. Need ideas on how you can help raise hundreds or even thousands of dollars towards our projects?
Here you will find some suggestions and special tips on how to fundraise.
Organise a weekend bazaar/fair at your local community centre:
These are usually successful if done the right way. Charge 50c entrance or even free, set up tables & chairs for stalls and ask family/friends to volunteer their skills (e.g. face-painting, food & refreshments, art, crafts, music, book-selling, joke-telling etc). You may need permission for the hall first.
Tip: Publicise the event, especially in the local area and let us know so we can promote it too on our website and social media.
Request a non-uniform day at school/college:
Each student pays $1 to be able to attend in non-uniform. Be sure to arrange this in advance with your teachers though!
Sell your unwanted stuff:
We all have things we own that we don’t really need. So sell it on E-bay and use the profit to support us! You can also have garage sales, car boot sales or cake sales and invite your family & friends!
Raise money online by letting all your contacts know that you’re collecting money for Global Gardens of Peace & how they can help out & be a part of the great cause.
Organise an outing:
Arrange a trip or outing for your family & friends, And ask each person to make a donation. eg. visit an Open Garden or hold a dinner party or a musical event etc .
Give for free
By getting involved in fundraising you can help raise vital funds for Global Gardens of Peace at absolutely no cost to you!
