Survive on 5!

Did you know that in many of the countries we work in, our beneficiaries live on far less than €1 a day? When Maedhbh visited Niger, she was shocked to discover people who had gone 10 days without any food.

In this mission we are asking your team to survive on €5 for 5 days…. So just €1 per day per person to spend on food. You can pool your resources, or work separately.

This could be a great way to boost your fundraising by asking friends and family to support this mission by donating €5 to your page, which will boost your points too!


To win bonus points you will need to submit the following to worldchampions@concern.net

A receipt outlining how much you spent 100
Submit your 5 day meal plan 100
Change your profile picture on Facebook to bowl of porridge and and send us a link to your profile 100
Film a cooking demo of one of your meals, send us the link and share on Facebook. 200

PS. remember by using these challenges to raise funds you’ll raise even more points!

TIPS FOR FUNDRAISING

Make a list Make a list of all your potential fundraising sources: friends, family, work colleagues, local schools, pubs, clubs etc. You’d be surprised at the amount of people willing to support your fundraising for Concern. When looking at places of work consider the option of match funding. Be sure to ask!

Set the pace Don’t send your fundraising request to everyone initially. First approach the people who’re most likely to give you the most. This starts your fundraising page off well and suggests an amount for sponsorship to subsequent donors.

Spread the word Don’t be shy in telling people about your event and, more importantly, why you are doing it. You are supporting a wonderful cause in Concern Worldwide. Let everybody know that. We can provide you with materials to really get the word out there.

Use social media to fundraise Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram – whatever channels you use, use them all to spread the word about what you’re doing. You might find you’re sponsored by people you haven’t heard from in years!

Take part as a group Encourage friends or family members to take part with you and your team. There’s strength in numbers – this will give you a wider pool of people to fundraise from.

Get a sponsorship card The old ways are sometimes the best. If you drop us a mail, we can send you an old style hard copy sponsorship card to use for people who just don’t go online. You could be missing out otherwise.

Organise an event Why not organise an event like a pub quiz or a coffee morning to highlight your participation. It’s a bit more work, but that face-to-face contact might make people much more inclined to sponsor you. And at any events throw in a raffle, these can often bring in more than the event itself!

Be loud and proud Enjoy yourself! Fundraising for Concern, and the work that we do, is a noble endeavour. You should be proud of what you are doing. Let people know this.

Use the missions to help Throughout the competition there will be missions. You should be able to tie these missions into your fundraising to assist you with this.

Talk to us We fundraise day in and day out, and we will be able to give you great guidance. Be sure to contact Champions HQ by emailing worldchampions@concern.net if you need a bit of help or just for a brainstorm.
