There are lots of fun ways to raise funds and awareness for MND New Zealand at work. Every action, big or small, helps us make a difference to the lives of people diagnosed with MND and their families/whānau.
We’ve put together a list of fundraising ideas and other ways you can get your work involved. Whether your company is big or small, has supported a charity before or not, we are here to help you kick-start your fundraising!
Here are just a few ways you and your colleagues can get involved and raise money in support of MND New Zealand.
A classic favourite. You can’t go wrong with a bit of cake! Get everyone to bring something in and ask for donations. Perhaps you could judge the baking and hand out prizes to the most impressive sweet treat.
Why not get competitive across departments and teams and host a traditional sports tournament at your local park? Dodgeball, netball, football - choose one to suit all abilities. Or you can make up your own sports and hold the tournament in your office. Office wheelie chair race anyone? Get each player to donate an entry fee. This is a brilliant way to encourage some healthy competition, and the winning team's photo can take pride of place in the office!
Get your manager or CEO onboard to complete a challenge if a fundraising goal is met (dye their hair a fun colour, take on the ice bucket challenge, get slimed etc.) Employees can either vote for their favourite challenge idea by donating, or simply donate to reach the fundraising goal as soon as possible.
Put a twist on the classic mufti day and get your colleagues to come to work in their PJs, black tie or themed fancy dress, in return for a donation.
Get together with your colleagues and find out who's really the brainiest of the bunch by holding your very own quiz. Raise funds by charging people to take part.
Hold a staff and client dinner or luncheon. Sell tickets and/or hold a raffle and auction to raise funds.
