Smash your step count on the way to reaching your fundraising goals by mapping out some sage and scenic routes around you and charge a gold coin donation or donation to your fundraising page to join the squad.
Why eat alone when you can eat with friends. Whether it’s virtual or in real life, set up a dinner party and invite those joining to make a donation. And why not go big and make it a dress up party!
Roll out the red carpet for your friends with a movie night at your place. Don’t forget to stock up on drinks and snacks to swap for donations during the show!
Hosting a bake sale is a great way to raise money. Gathering donations is made easier when you are offering something delicious. Why not partner up with a colleague and ask them to make something savoury while you do the sweet or vice versa?
Vintage fashion and antiques are all the rage. Find some items around the house that you’re willing to part with and host a garage sale for your local community or office or post a listing online to reach more people.
If your neighbours, friends or family members own a dog, why not offer to take them on a daily walk during STEPtember? It’s an easy way to increase your step count and earn fundraising dollars at the same time.
