Hello, posting here because I'm not really sure what to google to find ideas.
My DD1 loves getting involved in anything where she can help people. She's only 6 so while fundraising is one way to give to charities, she'd love to do something a bit more tangible. We're doing the Rucksack Project to help homeless people and we've also thought of putting together a hamper for a local animal shelter but we're a bit stumped for ideas after that.
Has anyone got any ideas of what we can do or maybe a better idea of what I should google to get more ideas? Obviously we will check with charities first to find out what they need, we won't just be barging in with loads of junk.
Could she learn to knit and make innocent smoothie hats to raise money for age uk www.ageuk.org.uk/get-involved/events-and-challenges/the-big-knit/. Or make cakes / biscuits to sell like a Macmillan coffee morning? Is she involved in any performance type things, could she get involved in a show to raise money or put on a small show with friends at an old peoples home. All ideas I've done with guides or brownies. By the way what a lovely thing for her to want to do
Could she do a sponsored event of some description, and choose a charity to donate it to? I'm sure if she wrote a letter saying what she had done, and you sent a cheque for the amount raised, the charity would acknowledge receipt so that she would know "officially" that she had contributed.
