LOCKDOWN FUNDRAISING IDEAS

Get physical

From counting steps and push-ups to running a virtual 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon to doing star jumps, skipping or riding your exercise bike. Use a step counter, running watch or a free smartphone app such as Runkeeper, Strava or Map My Run. Set up a fundraising page on Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving and share on your social media. Take photos/videos of your progress to post on social media. Tag Jimmy’s so we can make a fuss! Or join an existing event such as Jogging for Jimmy's.

Get creative

Put on a virtual gig, stand-up comedy show or other performance to entertain and fund raise from your home. Make something you've never made before, knit the longest scarf in Cambridge, or other ways to get your creative juices flowing! Set up a fundraising page on Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. Advertise your event on your social media and other networks. Stream your show live using Facebook live (or a similar platform). Mention the donate link a lot during your performance. Tag Jimmy’s on social media so we can give you a shout out!

Get social

Host anything from a social to a virtual movie night or pub quiz. Get set up on Zoom, Houseparty or similar video-conferencing platforms. Set up a fundraising page on Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. Ask attendees to make a donation to join your event. Consider hosting similar events in future.

Get silly

Lockdown is the ideal time to grow a big old beard, shave your hair off or grow Rapunzel hair. Or start your own online challenge (the new 'ice bucket'). Set up a fundraising page on Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. Advertise your plan on your social media and other networks.Take photos and videos to share your progress – or stream live using Facebook live (or a similar platform). Tag Jimmy’s on social media so we can share your success!

Get selling

Got extra stuff you don’t need or skills you can auction? Sell items and help Jimmy’s with Buengo or auction your skills and time with Auction of promises. This can either be virtual during lockdown or in person post-lockdown. Best delay posting anything out until after the lockdown.

Get buying

Handily Jimmy’s has a range of ways you can get some retail therapy and support our work including our Amazon wish list, Amazon Smile and Give as you live pages.

Get re-purposing

Saving money on daily coffees, lunches, gym membership, fuel or more during lockdown? Why not pass on that saving to Jimmy's, like our Chair of Trustees (photo on the left) who is donating all of the petrol money she is saving each month.

Get asking

Another easy one: simply ask your friends, family and colleagues to support Jimmy’s. Got a birthday coming up? Ask those who would usually give you presents to donate to Jimmy’s instead. Let everyone know you are fundraising for Jimmy’s and you’d like their help. Set up a fundraising page on Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving.
