F is for Fundraising

By Issy Goode - 20:11

Well hello again, I'm slowly catching up on this...!

I've said before that my A to Z challenge focus is all about being at home and my progress towards fundraising and learning about Thailand in the months before I go away. So I have to apologise now if I ramble on a lot, but I'll be trying my best to keep things fresh rather than repeating myself too much!

Now fundraising wise, I haven't done a lot towards it so far but I've got 4 weeks back in Cornwall now and I'm dedicating this month to fundraising (oh and those few thousand word essays I've got to crack on with!).

Here's my total so far:

My family and friends have been really generous, and I've saved up about £90 myself so far, with the hope of obviously putting more towards it. In all honesty I find this a hard thing to fundraise for as it's not your typical charity 'event' as it were. And whilst I will have an amazing experience out in Thailand, the reason I'm going out there is to make a difference to people lives.

Onto my fundraising plans!

Car boot, car boot, car boot...in my house we have box after box and an already packed car boot full of generously donated bits and bobs (some I want for myself!) that we can sell on. I hope to make quite a bit considering the amount of stuff we've collected so I'll be doing a few car boot sales during the 4 weeks I'm home, with the first being on Easter Sunday in the Sainsbury's car park!

Bake sales! - who doesn't love cake? Don't say you don't! I've got my sister by my side (Cupcake Mumma) to help me do some baking and I'll be filling a table up of cake and treats to sell to help me raise funds, so if you live around Porthleven keep an eye out!

A dinner party - I thought a nice idea whilst I'm home would be to throw a Thai themed dinner party for my friends as I barely ever see them any more. As many of my friends are students or young working chaps, I won't be asking for big donations, just anything little and a lovely night in with them (I'm sure it won't be as sophisticated as it sounds!)

The Great Run - I signed up for the run a while ago, and will be doing a post on this for 'G', so all I can say for now is there's a nicely sized group of us VESL volunteers training for this!

I'll keep this post updated if I come up with any more ideas, but I hope with only a few hundred left to raise I should be well on my way to hitting my target after doing all this. Wish me luck!
