The BIG Difference
The Big Difference fundraising push is about encouraging you to raise money to support the Fellowship’s work in making a big difference by bringing people affected by albinism together
Our principal activity is to organise events like conferences, family/information days and social groups that bring people together to learn about and share experiences of albinism in relaxed settings.
We need to raise more money to make these events happen, especially our upcoming family weekend conference in England in 2013.
We used Albinism Awareness Week in July to kick off The BIG Difference, a fundraising push to generate as much voluntary income as we can between now and March 2013 towards future events.
How can you help? There are lots of ways you can help by fundraising for us. Here are just a few ideas:
- Sell some items you don’t want on eBay and donate the profits
- Run a sponsored marathon, half-marathon, 10k or 5k or fun run
- Get your employer to make a donation or match-fund your fundraising
- Hold a Raffle or Tombola as part of an event you are organising
- Hold a Coffee Morning or Tea Party and ask you family and friends to make a donation to attend
- Ask your school, college or employer to choose Albinism Fellowship as one of their charities to support
- Clear out your garage or loft, sell surplus items at a Car Boot Sale and donate what you raise
- Lots…lots…lots…more ideas!
