Here are virtual fundraising ideas, so you can stay at home and help give the 100,000 babies born premature or sick every year the best chance of survival and quality of life.

How to plan your event

We are here to help you raise money for premature or sick babies by organising the best virtual event possible.

Think about…

Who do you want to invite to your virtual fundraiser?

Work colleagues, friends, family? Maybe you will organise different fundraisers for different groups of friends!

What virtual event are you going to organise?

From Zoom pub quizzes to Houseparty coffee mornings to Skype dance parties, there’s so many ways you can get involved. Why not try one of these ideas?

When will you hold your fundraiser?

Pick a date and time that allows you to get organised and ensures that people will be available to join.

How are you going to fundraise?

JustGiving, Facebook fundraising. whatever is easiest for you!

Why are you fundraising for Bliss?

Let people know how your event is going to help Bliss improve outcomes for every single baby born premature and sick in the UK, and how we need your help now, more than ever, as a result of COVID-19.

Remember to register your event with us so that support your fundraising, offer advice and we can have the opportunity to wish you luck and thank you for your fundraising efforts.

Stuck for ideas?

Think about what you usually like to do with friends and family, or in your spare time. If you like going out to eat and drink with friends, host a virtual get together. If you are part of a choir or orchestra, organise a virtual concert. If you are a general knowledge whiz, create a virtual pub quiz. Ask those who attend to make a donation to Bliss.
