So far 2012 has seen many highlights and this iconic year will most certainly go down in history.
But with all the excitement the downside is charities are feeling the pinch. As people focus on other things, they’re missing out on essential funding – and they need your help.
Already this year we’ve seen thousands of remarkable people take on extraordinary challenges to raise money for charities close to them. From taking on the marathon, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, shaving their head, or pedaloing down the Thames. The difference every single fundraiser has made is huge! But there’s still so much we can do and that’s where you can help.
Whether you’ve already done something for charity this year, or plan to, we want to give you an extra reason to do something special .
We’re so proud of the efforts our fundraisers go to, we’re offering you the chance to win a £2,012 donation to your charity to make your fundraising count for more this year. And the really great news is there are three lots of £2,012 to give away!
It couldn’t be easier for you to enter – just set up a fundraising page for any event or personal challenge happening between 1 October and 31 December 2012 and we’ll automatically enter you into the draw as soon as you receive your first donation. (There’s a draw at the end of each month, so you’ll be included in the draw in the month your event takes place.)
Don’t worry if you’ve already got a page set up for an event during these months – you’ll be automatically entered as soon as you start your fundraising so you don’t miss out.
If you already know what you want to do as a fundraising challenge, why not set up your page today.
If you want to get involved, but undecided what to do, here’s some inspiring stories on what other fundraisers have been doing to raise money.
Go on, make 2012 the year you made a real difference!
