FUNDRAISING IDEAS for businesses

Have a Wear-White-to-Work-Day on the day of White Balloon Day, Friday September 8th. Decorate your workplace with white bunting, streamers and a donation box (provided in your pack once you register), white balloons (inside only please!). Ask all staff to bring a gold coin (or more) donation on the day.

Are you a boss? If so, show you care about the protection of the children in your community and host a fundraising morning tea or lunch for your employees. Cater the morning tea as a special treat for your staff and ask staff to make a donation, offering to match whatever they raise so as to double your businesses contribution.

Give up coffee for a day. Ask everyone in your organisation to give up just ONE take-away coffee on White Balloon Day, and instead donate the $5 to Bravehearts.

Donate a prize. We are currently looking for businesses willing to donate goods or services to be auctioned and raffled during our White Balloon Day fundraising gala. If you can help, please email fundraising@bravehearts.com.au  

Don’t wish to make too much fuss but still want to support White Balloon Day? Make a donation to White Balloon Day on behalf of your business or organisation (you can do this via the website OR by contacting the Bravehearts office on 07 5552 3000).

 

FUNDRAISING IDEAS for community groups and clubs

Hold a sausage sizzle on White Balloon Day and donate the profits.

Pledge a fundraising goal and rally your local community to support your efforts.

Hold a bake sale and sell cakes, treats and other goodies with a white and purple theme.

Hold a swap-meet, where members of your organisation, group or club bring in unwanted clothes and other items and buy, swap and sell, with all proceeds going to Bravehearts.

Organise a sponsored ride, walk, skate, scooter or cycle on or near White Balloon Day in your local area. Ask participants on the day to bring along a nominated amount to donate to Bravehearts.

Have a lolly-jar guessing comp with a gold coin entry per guess. Over a few weeks gather people’s guesses in your community, making a record of each one, then on White Balloon Day announce the winner (the person whose guess is the closest to the actual number of lollies in the jar).

Give up coffee for a day. Ask everyone in your organisation to give up just ONE take-away coffee on White Balloon Day, and instead donate the $5 to Bravehearts.
