The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation has many projects which we are currently involved in. There are many more we wish to begin but in order to achieve our goals we need to have adequate funding. It is our ultimate aim to ensure that no parent who has had a premature child should be left without support, friendship & guidance. Through our projects we hope to ease the journey these families find themselves on.There are two ways to fundraise
We have taken the difficult part out of online fundraising and made it easy with Everyday Hero.
Now all you have to do is think of a fun idea. To get you started, we have put together a few great fundraising ideas. Have a look and see if any appeal to you.
If you would rather not raise money on line you are more then you are welcome to do it yourself. Just contact us & let us know & if there is anything we can do to help you with your idea we will.
Would you like to help out but not sure how?
Then if you have some spare time when an event is being held feel free to volunteer your valuable time and reduce costs for LLT to help them raise more funds for the cause.
Holding an event to help raise money for LLT
If your workplace would like to hold an event to help raise money for LLT and at the same time bring a team at work together, feel free to contact us to obtain an authority to raise funds. Below are some ideas for events you can hold at work or as an after work function.
Simply got a few hours to spare now and then
You could help us put together our Prem Parent Hospital packs. These are delivered to parents currently in hospital & provides them with lots of great information. Or help us wrap presents for parents in hosptal on Mothers Day, Fathers Day, National Premmie Day & Christmas Day.
Brush the dust off your joggers
Start a running team and feel the buzz of completing a marathon. Not up to running marathon? Why not set the date, set the distance, and get sponsored to walk!
Prefer to crawl?
What could be better than a pub crawl! Charge each person to attend, hire or have a mini bus donated for the evening and you could even have a bucket with the group that is ‘crawling’ and ask other patrons in the bars to pop their change into the bucket to help support your efforts for LLT.
The ball’s in your court!
Why not hold a baseball/cricket/golf/basketball/netball/tennis/football tournament? How do you raise money? Charge entrance fees of course!Bullseye! For the not so energetic, how about a darts match or a game of dominoes down the pub? You could also have a balloon board and have amounts hidden in each balloon. Charge each person a small fee to play and then they aim a dart at the balloon and if they pop a balloon they donate the amount in the balloon. You must make sure each person participating is aware of the highest amount and agrees to this prior to entering.
Anyone for a quick dip?
Try a sponsored swim.
Why not hold an all you can eat BBQ or buffet for your workmates/friends/associates – they’ll be happy to make a donation and scoff as much food as they can!
Naughty but nice!
Do away with the diet, get sponsored and challenge others to devour as many cream cakes as possible.Still a big kid? Eat jelly beans with chop sticks – how many can you cram in a certain period of time? Encourage others to guess and run a sweepstake!
Feeling a bit portly?
Shed your kilo’s whilst raising money for LLT. Take part in a sponsored slim!
How many grams?
Bake a cake and run a competition to guess the weight. Then you can sell slices of the cake to staff for morning or afternoon tea with coffee or tea.
Host a dinner party
Get the food and wine donated or ask people to bring a course each and make a donation.
Roll back the years!
Hold a 20s party, a 50s rock n’ roll dance or an 80s disco – pick your favourite decade and watch the money come rolling in for LLT as you charge people for a ticket.
Why not make a donation to the LLT rather than sending Christmas cards this year?
Still got a full head of hair?
Shave it off for LLT! For the not so brave, try a beard or moustache instead!
Get sponsored to wear a silly wig for a week. The more sponsors the more money you can raise.
