Fundraising at home is a great way to feel connected during social isolation.

As a charity many of our fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed, but if you’d like to support our Keeping Breakfast Going campaign while still staying safe, we’ve come up with a few ideas on how to fundraise from home.

All of these can be set up using group chat apps such as Zoom or Teams, and it is easy to set up a fundraising page on our website or with JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving.

Host a pub-at-home quiz with your colleagues or friends and apply the usual fundraising mechanics (donate to participate, buy 'cheats' etc). The prize for the winning team could be a voucher for a food delivery service or a local small business who might be struggling at this time. 

Share your skills by hosting a lunchtime tutorial or training session in exchange for a donation. Potential sessions could include yoga, meditation, baking or cookery, Zumba, foreign language learning or even knitting. 

With schools closed, parents will be grateful for any entertainment you can offer to keep their kids busy. Host a lunchtime activity and give your parent colleagues or friends some peace through storytelling, a Blue Peter-style arts and crafts tutorial, a singalong, dance class, magic show - the more creative and energetic the better! 

Host an online dinner party or ‘Come Dine With Me’ - either via a group chat platform or with family/housemates (those already living under the same roof as you). 

If you're a singer or musician, why not put on a virtual gig and take requests from viewers. 

Take on a virtual challenge - there are 1,037 steps to the top of The Gherkin, 674 steps to the second platform of the Eiffel Tower, 44 miles between Edinburgh and Glasgow, ... Challenge your colleagues or friends to walk the equivalent amount of steps to a world famous landmark, or cycle, walk or jog a set distance over the course of a day or a week. Track and compare your progress on a fitness watch or smartphone app like Strava. 

If you are working from home, how about donating the money you would usually spend on your commute or lunch for a day, a week or as long as you like, and encourage your team to do the same. 

Sort through your wardrobe and sell any unwanted clothes and accessories online via marketplace like Ebay, Schpok or Depop, and donate the money raised to our campaign. 

Set up an online book club and encourage participants to make a donation to Magic Breakfast for each online meet.  

If you are doing your shopping online don't forget to use Amazon Smile, Savoo or 'Give as you Live'.

Have fun! We’d love to hear about anything you do to support our #KeepingBreakfastGoing campaign. Thank you.
