You can start making a change right now!
What cause would you like to support?
Or is there another cause you are passionate about? You can start raising money to help it right now.
Whatever your passion, here are five great ways you can fund-raise to make a difference.
Ask your parents to help you – get your whole family, your class, your school involved!
1. Organise a casual – or crazy – clothes day at your school
Talk to your teacher. If everyone donated a gold coin, how much money might you raise?
2. Run in a charity marathon or fun-run
There are fun-runs in most cities each year. Get fit and ask family and friends to sponsor you to raise money for your cause.
3. Have a Cake Stall
Possibly the yummiest way to make a difference – organise your whole class to make cupcakes and sell them at lunchtime. Check out girl hero Jade Esler’s cupcake website for inspiration!
4. Give your birthday present
Ask family and friends to make a donation to your cause instead of a present – you’ll be amazed how good it feels. (Read about one girl hero who did here)
5. Hold a garage sale
Get together with your friends and gather up the clothes you’ve grown out of and the toys or sporting gear you no longer use and hold a garage sales – definitely ask your parents first though!
