See below for an event guide and ideas that have worked for others.

Walk In Her Shoes

Host your ver own Walk In Her Shoes event by challenging your friends and family to walk 10,000 steps in support of women and girls.

Host a Girl Rising Screening

Host a film night at a community centre or with a group of friends. The film Girl Rising shares the stories of nine girls from developing countries.

Special Occasions

Make your support for CARE part of an important even like a wedding or baby shower.

Ask your friends and family to donate money for every kilometre you run, walk, swim or bike.

Parties and Dinners
Charge your guests "admission" to your dinner party and put all the proceeds towards your fundraising goal.

Hold a sports tournament, organize a bowling night, or play from the couch in support of your fundraiser.

Lunch and Learn
Host an interesting speaker series for your office, school or community. Depending on your location, you could invite CARE staff to share their stories.

The Classics
Try a classic fundraiser like a car wash, garage sale, BBQ, can/bottle drive, bake sale, pancake breakfast or dress-down day at work or school.

Birthdays and Holidays
Ask your friends to donate to CARE instead of buying you a gift.


STEP #2: Create your own fundraising page and set a fundraising goal.
