Charity fundraiser ideas: Organising your own event for Changing Faces

View our charity fundraiser ideas, get inspired and start raising money for Changing Faces to support people living with a visible difference.

Are you in need of some motivation? Whatever your interests, we’ve got a virtual fundraising challenge for you.

A charity fundraiser is a great way to support people living with a visible difference or disfigurement, while ticking off a big goal in 2021.

Take a look at our charity fundraiser ideas, pick your challenge, create a fundraising page – and get started!

If you raise over £10 for Changing Faces, you’ll receive a medal in the post. Raise £30 and we’ll send you a Changing Faces T-shirt as a thank you for your support.

Birthday Facebook fundraiser

Missing out on your normal birthday plans? Want an alternative to gifts this year? The first of our charity fundraiser ideas is to run a fundraiser on Facebook and ask your friends and family for donations. Just go to our Facebook fundraising page and click the “Raise money” button to get started.

Movie night

You can use a Netflix Teleparty, Google Hangouts or Zoom to host movies or TV show nights with your friends and family online.

Once you’ve decided on what you’re going watch, just ask for a contribution to take part. Why not watch the film Wonder and use our resource pack to discuss the film?

You can set up a JustGiving page and ask for a donation from those who attend.

Skills swap

Lead an online yoga class, show friends and family how to cook your favourite recipe or teach your favourite dance routine – even volunteer your storytelling skills for bedtime stories on Facebook Live or Instagram Live.

You can set up a JustGiving page and ask for a donation from those who attend.

Hold a gaming tournament

Get your family, friends, or office involved in a gaming competition with prizes for the top gamer. Set up a JustGiving page and ask guests to donate to take part.

You could play a game online over Hangouts or Zoom or even socially distanced outside if the weather and coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions allow.

Letter writing fundraiser

Start a fundraiser online or on social media and pledge to send everyone who donates a letter or post card to thank them for their donation.

You can use JustGiving or our Facebook fundraising feature to do this.

Keepy-Uppy Challenge

Missing your five-a-side team? How about a sponsored Keepy-Uppy challenge? Make it interesting and stream it over the internet on your club’s Instagram or Facebook Page. If you have a rival team, why not make it a grudge match?!

You can use JustGiving or our Facebook fundraising feature to do this.

Virtual book club

Take your book club online and donate the money that you would have spent on drinks and snacks to Changing Faces.

A JustGiving page is a good way to accept donations for this kind of challenge.

Karaoke night

Sing your heart out in the comfort of your own home! Check out Lucky Voice Karaoke or Singa.

Stream it over Zoom, Hangouts or whatever streaming platform you use and raise money on JustGiving or our Facebook fundraising page.

Isolympics

Hold your own “Isolympics” with challenges that can be done safely at home! Get your friends and family to take part in a sweepstake on who will win and stream via online platforms.

Come up with your own challenges or try these ideas:

  • Who can hold a plank for the longest?
  • Bounce a tennis ball on a racket – who can do the most in three minutes?
  • Who can balance on one leg for the longest?
  • Who can manage the most tricep dips off a chair in a minute?

The winner gets one half of the sweepstake, and you can donate the rest to Changing Faces via our donation form.

Donate your commute

Charity fundraiser ideas can be really simple! If you’re currently working from home, why not consider donating the price of your commute, daily coffee or lunch to help us support more people with visible differences? Every penny helps.

You can make your donation to Changing Faces using our donation form.

We hope you’ve found these charity fundraiser ideas useful. Whatever you choose to do – we wish you good luck! Thank you for helping Changing Faces support those living with a visible difference or disfigurement.
