i am running a tombola in aid of mind.org - i need your help with funding and donations
I have, since the turn of the year, been running several charitable raffles aimed at raising much needed funds for worthwhile causes. I have raised over £300 for Cystic Fibrosis and this figure will double as I am due to run the Great North Run in aid of them in the next few weeks (with a grade 2 hamstring tear may I add, but people are counting on me so on I must go!) and most recently I raised around £135 for The Miscarriage Association.
Next up is Mind (registered charity number 219830) www.mind.org – the mental health Charity. I lost a good friend of mine to depression very suddenly in the summer of 2014. This in itself kicked me in the right direction to battle through my own personal demons, and with the help of Mind I am winning my fight.
I have found raffles tough to run alongside my shop and my “real” job, so I have decided to change up my support for Mind by running a tombola and a secret auction.
This will take place at Santa's Christmas Market, 27th November 11am - 3pm
i am currently looking at 200 prizes being made available for this
i currently have 115 prizes predominantly donated by myself, and with being a small business i am struggling to fulfil the prize quota
i have a few further avenues to investigate but even with the impending genorisity of donations, i am still short by around the 30/40 prize mark
this crowdfunder will enable me to purchase these remaining gifts, any help you could give will be greatly appreciated
