Fundraising Resources

No matter what your skills or interests are, there is a fun way for you to get involved and have a huge impact on a child’s life. Start a work or school challenge, host an event, get a team in a local fun-run, gift your birthday. You are only limited by your imagination! Here are some ideas and resources to get you started.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser

If you have a celebration coming up, like your birthday, an anniversary or graduation, you might like to create a Facebook Fundraiser in support of Variety and ask your friends and family to donate instead of giving you gifts.

It’s easy and a great way to make a difference to the lives of kids in need.



Plan a fundraising event or activity

Are you tired of sitting at a computer or looking at a screen and miss human interaction? Why not plan a fundraising event and catch up with your friends in the flesh? Base the type of event or activity on your friends interests, for example plan a themed trivia night, wine and cheese tasting session, or a high tea.


Start an online fundraising page

If you are time poor or lack the event planning bug, you can still make a big impact on kids’ lives by creating and personalising an online fundraising page or creating a Facebook Fundraiser.

Instead of just creating an online fundraising page, why not set yourself a challenge and explain what you’re doing and why. For example, wear something eye-catching for a week if you reach your fundraising goal – this will be a challenge especially if you have classes or work meetings but it’s a great conversation starter and will create lots of awareness of what you’re doing to help Aussie kids. It can be something that gains compliments or an item that is embarrassing – you decide!

Perhaps you could give up sugar or social media for a month and your friends and family can show their support by making a donation. Into fitness? Challenge yourself to plank for a minute every hour for a week. The possibilities are endless, think outside the box!
