Whether your birthday is coming up, you’re sorting through old junk, or you’re planning your next Zoom party, there is always an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of seriously ill children.
Want to help but don’t know where to start? Check out the below ideas for some inspiration!
Host a Virtual Game Night! Gather your friends and family virtually through Facebook, Zoom, Hangouts, or House Party. Have participants pay a donation entry fee and let the games begin! Whether it’s bingo, trivia, poker, card games, or charades, there are countless fun opportunities!
A-thon! Challenge your friends, family, and colleagues to a Walk, Hike, Bike, Swim, Read, YOU NAME IT-A-THON. Individuals can donate to participate and even create their own pledge goals!
Upcoming Birthday or Holiday? Don’t really have anything on your wish list? Instead of gifts, ask for donations on Facebook or at www.starlightcelebrates.org for a heartfelt (and easy!) way to give back.
Livestream Fundraising! Love video games? Do a live stream in honour of Starlight Canada and ask for donations on your online platforms like Twitch, Facebook Live or YouTube!
Feeling Artsy or Creative? Hold a virtual tutorial for viewers and show off your skills. Painting, drawing, baking, cooking, DIY, or anything you love! Have viewers donate to join or simply donate the proceeds of your sales!
Bake/Garage/Book Sales. Now that you have found a new hobby while quarantining at home, why not keep it going and sell your delicious baked goods? Have some old books or items lying around that you no longer have use for? Clean your clutter for a cause through VarageSale or Facebook Marketplace and donate the proceeds!
