You don't have to run, hike or swim long distances to be one of fundraising's #RealSuperHeroes. Take the JustTextGiving £10 challenge for your charity.
The fundraising season is in full swing, and from Dryathletes to charity skydivers and cyclists galore, you’ve shared some incredible fundraising stories with us so far this year: from Andrew, who’s dressing up as his favourite Doctor Who character for Tiny Lives Trust, to Danny Shaw, who’s tracking down every single one of his 730 Facebook friends for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
This March, we want to share that message – we want to introduce a challenge that we can all take part in, whether you’re a fundraising first-timer or a seasoned veteran. It’s called the #RealSuperHeroes £10 Challenge.
Making fundraising easier
The goal is simple: use a JustTextGiving text code to raise £10 for a cause that you believe in by doing something a little bit out of the ordinary for a day. It’s that easy. With the help of your family, friends and co-workers, raising small and achievable amounts for charity can make the difference between a good day and a great one – after all, a whopping 70% of you said that supporting a charity raised your spirits most in 2013. Working together, we can create one big inspirational story of our own.
How you choose to raise a tenner in a day is up to you, but here are a few of our favourite ideas to get you started:
So why not join us? Get involved in the #RealSuperHeroes £10 Challenge and make the office tea for the day, do the washing up at home – anything and everything that you could do now that breaks from the normal routine. You’ll raise money for charity, do something great for other people and what’s more, you’ll finally have the opportunity to show off those lovely yellow Marigolds that have been collecting dust under the sink.
Using JustTextGiving is easy: the text is free on any network and every penny you raise will go to the charity of your choice.
