Fun Ways to Fundraise

Here are some of MS Readathon’s favourite fundraising ideas

Every year, people email us to tell us the fun ways that they fundraise for the MS Readathon. We have put together a list of great ideas to help your children to raise much-needed funds to help people with MS!

  • Ask family members to sponsor them
  • Utilise social media. Links to fundraising pages can be posted on Facebook or via Twitter
  • Join them in making and selling bookmarks to family and friends
  • Ask neighbours to sponsor them
  • Put a collection tin at your local shop or school
  • Ask people from your work to sponsor them
  • Email your friends and ask them to sponsor your child (you can do this directly from your child's fundraising page)
  • Sponsor them to do household chores
  • Bake lots of cupcakes or make jewelry and give them to family and friends for a small donation to MS
  • Have a book sale with all your old books or a garage sale with all proceeds going to MS
  • Write stories and give to family members for a donation to MS
  • Encourage them to read to younger siblings in exchange for a gold coin donation to MS
  • Get the kids to hand-write some really nice colourful letters (may be with a nice drawing) explaining why they want to help raise money for people with MS and put it up on the notice board at your work
  • Hold and afternoon tea and a raffle with proceeds going to MS
