Fundraise at Christmas for SOS Children

Support SOS Children this Christmas by raising money to support our work with vulnerable children around the world.

Here are our top ten festive fundraising ideas, but feel free to use your imagination!

Christmas in the Gambia

  • Organise a carol singing session and ask the audience for a contribution.
  • Invite your friends to a Christmas party, asking your guests to donate for their entry or for drinks.
  • Make homemade mince pies or other festive treats and sell them at your office or school.
  • Instead of sending Christmas cards this year, why not donate the money you would usually spend on cards to SOS Children?
  • You could arrange a Christmas-themed non-uniform day at your school or a dress-down day at your office. People can make a donation to SOS Children for the privilege of dressing as Father Christmas or a reindeer for the day.
  • Pack bags at your local supermarket in return for a small donation - a great opportunity to help out busy Christmas shoppers and raise money for charity. You could even wear Christmas-themed fancy dress!
  • You could get in the festive spirit by asking for donations to SOS Children instead of presents this year. By setting up a BT MyDonate page people can still send you a Christmas greeting. Alternatively, direct people to our online donation page.
  • Sign up for your local Christmas fun-run and get sponsored for your challenge.

Check out this page for details of how to pay in donations to SOS Children.

If you were given presents you already have or do not need, why not sell your unwanted items on Ebay? You can choose to donate all or part of the proceeds to SOS Children. Find out how here.

If you fancy taking on a challenge for the New Year, why not sign up for a run, trek or cycle ride to raise crucial funds for our work? Find out more here.
