There are many ways you can help fundraise for the MS Society. Here are some ideas to inspire you, but there are many other ways you could help so get creative, use your talents, your networks and your passion to help our cause.
Share your Talents
Offer your services to the public by sharing your skills with IT advice, spanish lessons, design work or DIY in return for donations to the MS Society.
Open your own Gallery
Host a student gallery opening with a donation on the door. You could also turn the gallery opening into a silent auction fundraiser by auctioning off the art.
Arts & Crafts
felt.co.nz is a wonderful website for selling crafts. You could have each of the members of your group produce a few items to be sold on felt.co.nz and donate the proceeds to MSNZ
Set up a night at a club or bar playing music or DJing. Charge an entrance fee or ask for donations on the door.
If you are a budding photographer, know a photographer or can persuade some photography students to take part this is a great fundraiser. Take photos of school children during class and recess (with the school’s permission, of course). Later, display the photos either online or at a school event, so that parents can see the photos you’ve taken and can order professionally developed copies of the photos they like.
Create a dinner fundraiser. Instead of going out to an expensive restaurant with your friends host a dinner and dontae the money to MSNZ instead
If you are a talented chef able to conjure up exotic dishes why not sell cooking classes. You could offer the opportunity to learn how to cook Vietnamese or Malysalsian or how to make the perfect souffle
Set up a class selling art or photography lessons. If you and your group members cannot teach a drawing or painting class, try to convince the high school art teacher or a local artist to lead a class.
Get sponsored for your madness by abseiling, skydiving or bungy jumping for money.
Hold a 50-50 Raffle at work, in which half of the raffle money goes to the winner, while the other half is donated to the MS Society. Set up a poker night making half the money the prize and the the other half a donation to the MS Society.
Horders & Collectors
Clear out the house by holding a garage sale or selling unwanted items on Trademe.
