Fundraising at home

Here are a few ideas to help support premature or sick babies while you stay home to save lives.

Celebrate with Bliss

If you have a birthday, bat or bar mitzvah, anniversary or another celebration coming up, why not bring the celebration online?

Ask friends and family to give a donation to Bliss instead of what they would have spent on the event.

If your child spent time on the neonatal unit, you can also set up a tribute fund for people to donate to.

Brave the Shave

With hairdressing and barber services currently closed, you might be joining people in growing beards or shaving their hair off at home.

Set up a fundraising page with a target and see how many sponsors you can get.

We have had a number of Bliss supporters videoing their 'shave' after getting sponsored by friends in the past, like Dave who raised £1000 for Bliss before shaving off his beard. Take a look at his boys' reaction to seeing their dad without his beard for the first time below.

Bliss Night In

Host a night in with friends using one of the free video apps.Enjoy the company of all your friends together, play games, have your own choice of drinks and snacks.Ask friends to donate what they've saved from a normal night out to Bliss.

Host a Virtual Pub Quiz

If you are a general knowledge whiz, create a virtual pub quiz.Set up your fundraising page for Bliss by asking for a donation to enter the quiz you host. Contact our events team if you'd like a round of questions all about Bliss!

2.6 Challenge

Anyone can take on the 2.6 Challenge, all you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits your skills. You could hold the plank for 2.6 minutes, run up and down the stairs 26 times or garden for 26 minutes. This is a challenge for all ages and abilities and you can do it at home or as part of your daily exercise.
