In the Workplace
Why not support TinyLife in your place of work? Gather together a few of your work colleagues in your lunch hour and plan and set up a fundraising event for everyone to join in and have fun. If a bunch of you go for coffee or meet in the pub after work do it there. If you and your friends work shifts leave a suggestion sheet on a notice board and ask people to vote for their choice. Not only will fundraising together raise much needed funds for TinyLife, it will also help boost staff morale and inject some fun into your working life.
Here are some suggestions for simple fundraising activities you could organise:
- Auction of Promises
- Dress Down Day
- Line of pennies or 20 and 50p
- Football/Basketball at Lunchtime
- Guess the baby picture competition
- Raffle – ask your colleagues to donate prizes
- Bake Sale
You can always adjust these ideas to your own theme. Dress down day could be just wear your silly hat.
Always check with your boss during this whole process. When you have decided on what you would like to do see if he/she can help by giving an employee some time off or by making a donation. Some work places will match any funds you raise.
You can also support TinyLife by lending us your skills and expertise – we are a small team and any extra help in this way would help immensely. Whether you work in PR, marketing or IT, we would welcome your assistance.
