- Shave Your Head
This is perhaps the most simple, yet daring fundraising challenge that you will find. All you need is some clippers -and some courage- and you are good to go with this incredibly quick and easy activity. Friends and family members will commend your bravery and so, it is sure to return a good donation amount and while you are at it, you will receive an easy to manage hairstyle!
2. Give Something Up
Another simple challenge that will require no planning or preparation. Simply give up something you enjoy for a set amount go time or for good. People will admire the sacrifice that you are making, hence making your cause all the more worthwhile to them which will lead to more donations. The beauty of this challenge is that it only requires a little bit of effort to change your normal routine.
3. Get Your Friends Involved
The more the merrier when you and your friends all have busy schedules. Why not share the load and do a fundraiser together? Arrange between you what your challenge will be and then allocate responsibilities to each of you. This could be one person setting up the fundraising page, one person getting the equipment you need and one person telling all of your other friends about it. This will make the work you put in to the fundraiser tiny compared to what you will get out. The best thing about this fundraiser is that the more people involved, the more people can send it out to their other friends and families on social media which will means you will reach a greater audience, leading to more donations.
