From sponsored runs to bake sales, fundraising is a brilliant way to support Safe Haven Homes.
Your fundraising will raise the money that’s crucial to help Safe Haven Homes reach more survivors of human trafficking and exploitation. It will also help to raise awareness of the impact of modern slavery, and can inspire others to take action. And it can be fun and rewarding – you get to choose exactly what you do.
It’s easy to create your fundraiser.
Here’s a step-by-step guide.
1. Choose what to do.
Popular fundraising activities include sponsored runs, swims, cycles and so on, but you can get sponsored for whatever challenge or activity you choose. If you’d rather not go down the sponsorship route, you could hold a bake sale or coffee morning, or make items to sell and donate the proceeds to Safe Haven Homes.
2. Register your fundraiser on Just Giving so it’s easy for you to collect sponsors and donations.
We can provide some information about Safe Haven Homes for you to use and adapt for your fundraising page. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like us to share this with you. If you hold a sale or raise money another way, you can transfer it after the event.
3. Please let us know that you’re fundraising for us!
Email us at email@example.com . We’d love to support you if we can, say thank you, and maybe share your story on our website if you’re happy for us to do so.
4. Use social media/email/word of mouth to tell everyone you know about your fundraiser, and ask them to sponsor you or attend your event.
Sometimes, local press - newspapers, magazines, websites and so on – are interested when people are doing things for charity. If you want to give this a go, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help with a template for you to adapt for your fundraiser.
5. All that’s left to do is whatever planning you need to complete your fundraiser, and then to enjoy it on the day.
Get some photos if you can, and email them to email@example.com. We’d love to see them.
Every donation will benefit survivors of trafficking and exploitation. Your efforts are massively appreciated, thank you.
