Events like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, and graduations are ideal occasions to fundraise because friends and family like to mark the occasion by giving. Instead of receiving gifts you don’t really want or need, consider inviting your friends and family to make a donation to us instead. They can give as much or as little as they like, plus they’ll receive a tax receipt for doing so.
The youth and adults we serve overcome personal challenges each and every day. Show your solidarity by overcoming one of your own. Challenges can be physical (a challenging run, hike, climb or swim), brave (a sky dive for example) or rely on your willpower (no coffee for a month).
Take part in an organized run, arrange an office soccer match or plan a dance-a thon. You can fundraise by charging people to participate, or by encouraging them to fundraise themselves.
Raising money and awareness for a charity like PLEA can be a fulfilling way to honour a loved one, especially if their lives were touched by the type of work that we do.
