FUNDRAISE AND UNLEASH YOUR HIDDEN HERO

You can make a huge difference and help protect the world’s most vulnerable children from the effects of coronavirus by raising funds to support our work.

Involve your children in fun fundraising activities, so that they can actively take part in fighting the spread of the virus worldwide.

Unleash your #HiddenHero - When ordinary people come together, we can make an extraordinary impact.

In places where communities live in overcrowded conditions, without soap and clean water, with poor health systems, and where families have lost their livelihoods due to the restrictions to contain the pandemic, your support is vital to help us protect children from the worst effects of the virus.

Choose your own challenge and start your fundraising. Here are some fun kids fundraising ideas to involve your children:

WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?

The money you’ll collect through your fundraising will provide vital support to staff and volunteers around the world fighting the spread of coronavirus in communities where they have poor healthcare, live in crowded areas and can’t self-isolate, and have limited resources like soaps and masks to protect themselves.

For example:

£14 - could provide a hungry family with a food package to feed them for a week

£27 - could provide a caregiver with two bars of soap, 28 masks, and a bottle of disinfectant (enough to care for a person with mild symptoms for two weeks)

£59 - could provide a cash grant for a family to enable them to buy food and other necessities to care for their children

You can find more information about how your support is helping children to stay safe on our Coronavirus response page and our Hidden Hero campaign.
