Looking for ways to make the most of your time in local lockdown?
It’s easy to raise funds for Children of Colombia and do your bit to keep everyone safe with the Give as You Live Stay at Home challenge.
As a direct result of Covid-19 thousands of events have been cancelled, meaning the loss of millions in donations and sponsorship for UK charities. But with a little imagination, we can make a real difference and keep our minds and bodies active at a time when we are required to stay at home.
If you are one of the many who’ve taken up running walking or cycling to keep up your fitness while socially distancing you could take part in a virtual sporting event. But a virtual run or cycle on your home treadmill or exercise bike works just as well if you don’t fancy getting out in the cold or are in quarantine. If you are a teacher, then virtual yoga or pilates or zumba classes or videos could be a great way to share your knowledge while raising funds for poor and vulnerable children in Colombia, South America.
There are plenty of ways to fundraise that don’t involve wearing lycra and sports shoes. You can do your bit by holding a virtual quiz or an online games tournament with friends, neighbours and family. Or fundraise by sharing your special interest or talent – sewing tips, household hints or top recipes for winter meals. What about a sponsored head shave if you can’t get to the hairdresser or barber? Whatever your skills, you can create a sponsorship page on the Give as you Live Donate platform to raise funds for Children of Colombia.
