Help spread the word about Child Autism UK and the vital work we do by getting friends and family members to fundraise. It’s a fantastic way to raise awareness of autism and ABA and makes fundraising a more social experience.
From grannies to gal pals, drinking buddies to dads, the more people involved the better. We have a smorgasbord of activities from which to choose. Some requiring little effort and no expense, others more challenging for the superheroes amongst us.
Why not take a look at our Sponsored Events page to see what some of our supporters have done in the past? We like to let people know what our plucky Child Autism UK fundraisers are up to, so keep an eye on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ChildautismUK, and be the first to know what’s going on.
If you take part in a sponsored event to support us – we’d love it if you supplied photographic evidence, and the whackier the better, to share with your fellow supporters and have your very own ‘15 minutes of fame’ on our Facebook page!
Of course, we know that not everyone is cut out to run, jump, swim, cycle or climb but did you know you can raise money to support our work without even getting out of your chair?
You can raise money by…
…Switching energy providers
Now you can help Child Autism UK while actually saving yourself money into the bargain! How? By signing up to Give As You Live and then using their comparison website, Give As You Switch, to find the best deals on phone, broadband, insurance and fuel (as well as a price comparison on products including food, clothing and entertainment).
As an example, if you swap your duel fuel provider via Give As You Switch you could raise a donation of £17 for Child Autism UK, as well as the saving you’ll make yourself!
Why not check out the website?
…Donating your car! GiveACar is a not-for-profit scheme that allows you to donate your old car to be sold at auction or for scrap and the proceeds (minus service fees) donated to our work with children with autism and their families. Check out the link for full details – and don’t forget to select us as your chosen charity!
…Buying your printer cartridges at Cartridge People from our own dedicated Child Autism UK page, saving yourself the trouble of going to the shops when your cartridge runs out and raising vital funds for Child Autism UK at the same time – result!
… Getting crafty with your kids. Browse the selection of toys, crafts and ‘makes’ at www.yellowmoon.co.uk . Quote the source code SPE1451 and each purchase will raise 10% of your total shop for Child Autism UK!
Why not email us a snap of your finished masterpiece and let us show it off on our Facebook page? (When we say ‘your’ – we know you’ll claim the children did it but we grown-ups can’t resist a good craft kit – we’re only helping the children! No, really!)
None of the above for you? What about…
- Having a coffee morning and eating cake for Child Autism UK? Anything involving cake is always a winner.
- Holding a charity car boot sale and clearing your unwanted items at the same time?
- ‘Thinking big’ and holding a fundraising ball – all chandeliers and tiaras?
- Having a ‘Dress Down Day’ at work or even a ‘Dress Up Day’?
- Come up with something innovative and be an inspiration to others to follow your trail-blazing path.
The world is your oyster!!
