Host a BBQ, PotLuck Dinner, Pancake Breakfast
Host a get together with your favorite food and ask for free-will donations!
Talent Show or Africa-themed Movie Night
Let your kids go to town with a talent show! Set up a stage area and invite the whole neighborhood to come watch the festivities with a small entrance fee that supports The Vine. Sell snacks and drinks like a real theater! Choose an Africa or orphan themed movie and host a movie night! (The Lion King, The Good Lie, Madagascar.)
Host a Cooking Class or "Mom & Daughter Night Out"
Invite your friends to purchase a "Mommy & Me" Apron set lovingly made by The Vine Women and wear those cute aprons while you cook a favorite recipe with all the girls! (Check with firstname.lastname@example.org for quantities of aprons available).
$1 for a day Challenge
The average daily wage for Ugandans is around $1.00/day. Challenge your co-workers or friends to subtract a dollar from their own daily wage, and donate the remaining amount to The Vine. (For example, if your salary is $40k, divide 40k by 365 days ($62). Then subtract $1 ($61). Donate $61!
Have a contest between school classrooms, or extra-curricular classes to raise the most money. The classes pick their own way to fundraise (bake sale, car wash, talent show, door to door, etc.) The winner gets a shout out on social media from The Vine and a personal letter from our kids in Uganda!
Donate your Allowance
Teach your kids how to give back and tithe. Choose a week where they will donate their allowance on behalf of current and future Vine kids who survive day to day with nearly nothing. Or donate 10% of allowance as a tithe offering to The Vine.
Pay it Forward Party
Instead of accepting birthday presents, housewarming gifts or shower gifts ask for money donations. We've had people request in lieu of wedding gifts, donations be given to The Vine. Incredible! Spend part of the night discussing what those contributions will go towards and celebrating how you've helped countless widows and orphans.
Consign With The Vine
Ask for people to donate their gently used clothing, or household "junk" and turn it into a consignment/garage sale to benefit The Vine. Truly Fed Ministries hosted a huge consignment event called "Consign with The Vine" and had an amazing turn out. ALL the leftover clothing from the sale was delivered to village kids in Africa.
Small Business Blessings
Choose to partner with The Vine by donating proceeds of your business sales for one specific day or event. The group effort blesses everyone! Look at our upcoming events and see if your business is interested in sponsorship.
YOU can change a village. You might feel like you can't make a difference because you can't physically go to Africa. Well you can still make a huge impact! Your unique gifts and resources can change lives. There are hundreds of fundraising ideas, but here is a list that can inspire your family to give back and have fun doing it!
