It’s summer, the perfect time to dive into exciting fundraising activities that can make a meaningful impact on water access in Malawi. At Pump Aid, we are committed to ending water poverty and providing sustainable solutions to communities in need. In this blog post, we present a range of creative and engaging summer fundraising ideas that can help raise funds and bring clean water to those who need it most in Malawi.
Splash for a Cause:
Organise a water-themed event like a sponsored swim, water balloon fight, or water relay race. Encourage participants to gather sponsorships and donations for every lap they swim or every minute they participate in the water activities. Make it a fun-filled day and highlight the importance of clean water access while raising funds for Pump Aid’s projects in Malawi.
Hike for Water:
Organise a sponsored hike or nature walk in a local park or scenic trail. Participants can collect pledges or sponsorships for each mile they complete. Emphasise the connection between nature, and the importance of clean water for communities in Malawi. Share stories of how access to clean water improves lives and motivates participants to make a difference.
Create a fitness challenge, such as a 5K run, cycling event, or yoga marathon. Encourage them to set fundraising goals and promote donations to Pump Aid for every milestone achieved. Use online platforms to engage participants, share stories of Malawian communities, and provide updates on the impact of their contributions.
Host a Garden Party or BBQ:
Invite friends, family, and neighbours to a garden party in your backyard. Set up a donation station where guests can contribute to Pump Aid’s water access projects in Malawi. Consider incorporating a raffle or silent auction with prizes donated by local businesses to raise additional funds. Share educational materials about the water crisis and the impact of clean water access on communities.
This summer let’s turn moments of fun and leisure into opportunities for change. By organising summer fundraising events and activities, we can raise awareness and funds for Pump Aid’s water access projects in Malawi. Together, we can create a ripple effect that transforms lives and helps end water poverty.
