Christmas is peak time for donating to charity and a great opportunity to launch a Christmas campaign and have some fun. Here are 100+ Christmas fundraising ideas for charities, to help you.
It's been another tough year, so don't forget to say thank you to your supporters.

If multiple Santa sightings in the streets might cause some consternation amongst the kids, here are more ideas.
And people are going to say 'no', so it's important to keep going.
The Government has more money than you do, so get them to contribute too:

It' an opportunity to better engage your supporters and turn one-off involvement into ongoing support in 2022. Make sure that you appropriately thank everyone who supports you.

I wish you every success and a fantastic 2022.
