‘Keep Active’ Challenges
Got a fitness or stay active goal? Do your walking, running, fitness or other activity as a fundraiser, set a challenging goal and ask family and friends to sponsor you. It’s a sure way to make a difference for yourself and others who need support.
Get the kids involved
Doing a family activity fundraiser will keep your children active, connected and entertained. Could be a walking, skipping, running, cycling, hula-hoops or other activity, challenge or competition. And you can do it with your family or with other families.
Personal lockdown challenge
Grow a beard, cut your own hair, learn a new skill or give up a habit or favourite treat. Do it on your own, as a family or as part of a team. You can ask for sponsorship or donate the money you would have spent on what you gave up.
Your Birthday Celebration!
If you have a birthday coming up, hold a virtual party, set up a birthday fundraiser and invite family and friends to make a donation to COPE Galway instead of bringing gifts and cards.
Share your skills
Have a skill to share? Yoga, Pilates, fitness, cooking, baking or arts and crafts? Hold virtual or live sessions during lockdown and ask those who want to attend for donation.
Hold a virtual quiz
Virtual quizzes are brilliant for bringing people together for some fun and competition. Pick your question rounds, date and invite people to join and donate. Let us know if you need some tips.
Hold a gig online
Got a musical musical talent? Why not hold a live gig on social media or YouTube. People can donate live, via a fundraising page or tickets. We could all do with some good music to in these times.
Virtual book club
Take your book club online. Organise a video meet with fellow book lovers, grab a cuppa and delve into your favourite books. You can ask each person to make a donation.
