Fundraise for Together at Christmas
Christmas can be a difficult time for many families across the country. Whilst others are celebrating, those facing complex issues, including living in poverty, family breakdown, and mental ill health, can find Christmas a particularly challenging time.
Family Action works with families throughout the year to provide the helping hand they need to tackle these issues, giving them a chance to enjoy a happier Christmas together as a family.
Come together and fundraise with Family Action and you can help make Christmas special for children and families across the country!
Get involved – Christmas Fundraising
Hold a Get Together
Invite friends, family or colleagues to come together over the holiday period and raise money for Together at Christmas to help vulnerable families. Use our poster to promote your Get Together.
To raise money for Together at Christmas at your Get Together you could:
- Sell glasses of hot mulled wine and mince pies
- Make and trade Christmas decorations and crafts
- Hang candy canes on your tree and ask for a £2 donation
- Ask guests to bring and buy Christmas themed cakes!
Hold your own Dress Down Day
Getting everyone in your office, school or community in Christmas jumpers or hats for the day is a great way to boost morale and bring everyone together around a fun event, all while raising some very valuable funds for Family Action.
Set up a Giving Tree
A giving tree is a simple way to organise collections in your office or community. Hang tags or candy canes on your Christmas tree, with donation amounts attached and ask people to donate in return for the tag/ candy cane. We supply fundraising tins or buckets for under your tree so you can easily and safely collect cash.
Set up a fundraising page and ask friends on social media to support
Create your own Justgiving page to share your Christmas fundraising with friends. Share through your social media to get friends on board and donating.
Don’t forget to tag @Family_Action and use #TogetherAtChristmas.
Visit our Together at Christmas JustGiving homepage to get started.
