Make-A-Wish is calling on all supporters, workplaces, schools and clubs in Co. Wexford to organise a fundraising event from now until 31st October.
Why not focus on what you’re passionate about, organise a fundraising event and in doing so become a wish granter for a child in need. Fundraising events can take place in your workplace, school, community centre or event at home. Ideas for events include:
Summer Car Wash * Garage Sale * Bake Sale * Skipathon * Wear What You Wish Day * 80’s Disco * Balloon Pop * Vintage Coffee Morning * Street Party * Club Cycle * Rubber Duck Race * Table Quiz * Film Screening * Talent Show * Karaoke * Family Fun Run
Here are five easy-to-follow steps to help you organise your event and make Wexford Wishes Together a reality this Autumn.
Step one: Plan your Wexford Wishes Together event!
Pick a fundraising idea from the list above or use your own creativity to come up with some new and novel idea to get people involved. Pick a day between now and October 31st 2019 to run your event.
Step two: Get everyone involved! Next, you’ll need to decide where to advertise your event to recruit as many people as possible to participate. Enclosed is a blank poster for you to use to promote your own event. This should tell everyone the type of event you’re running and who to contact to get involved.
Step three: Aim for the stars with your fundraising! Have a suggested donation of €5 or €10 for each person taking part. Speak to the Make-A-Wish team about setting up an online fundraising page for your event on Everydayhero.ie or through Facebook. This way everyone can pay their money into this page.
Step four: Grant magical wishes! Ask for the donation money to be in by a certain day – you can always extend this if you need to. Once you’ve collected the donations send them to Make-A-Wish using the payment methods outlined on the back page of this brochure. Money raised online through Everydayhero.ie and Facebook automatically goes to Make-A-Wish Ireland.
Step five: Share the magic! Don’t forget to share pictures and videos of your specific event with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and use #WexfordWishesTogether
