Virtual fundraising ideas
Traditional ways of fundraising may be on hold for now, but we have come up with some fun, safe and creative ways to make difference to Blesma from the comfort of home.
Are you and your family fierce at Monopoly? Crazy about Cluedo? Bonkers about Bingo? There is a wealth of video call technology out there that will allow you to host a virtual board game fundraiser. Just ask your family to join you in donating to Blesma, via Just Giving or Charity Checkout, then settle in for an evening of feel-good family fun.
GAME ON FOR BLESMA
The Association’s newest challenge, Game On For Blesma, encourages people who love gaming to challenge friends and family to play online, competing in tournaments or completing challenges to raise money. Click here to learn more!
If you are missing your weekly Quiz, why not join in with Blesma’s Saturday night quiz here? The top three players win cash prizes which will be better the more that we raise, so why not invite your friends to play along? Alternatively, host your own Quiz night! You can ask friends, family,or just those on your social media to donate to Blesma in order to play.
VIRTUAL DINNER PARTY
Level up your night in, by getting your friends and family to dress up, cook their favourite meal and use video calling to create your virtual dinner party. Keep it exclusive- have your guests donate in exchange for an invite! Or if you’re not much of a cook, grab a glass and your tasting notes and get your friends together for a virtual wine tasting.
