During November, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here takes over our TV screens, transporting us from our living rooms to the Australian jungle.
12 celebrities set up camp and earn their dinner by completing difficult and often disgusting tasks in return for stars.
Some may look at the trials and think there’s not a chance they would attempt anything like it. And others might relish the challenge!
And what goes with a challenge like Ant goes with Dec? A fundraiser! The trickier or wilder the challenge is, the more likely you are to get sponsors! Which makes an I’m A Celebrity Themed fundraiser a great idea.
5 I’m A Celeb Themed Fundraising Ideas
- Bushtucker Trial
If you’re familiar with the show, then you’ll know all about the bushtucker trials and how they’re challenged to eat all kinds of unappetising things! We think that challenging someone to eat some bugs would be a bound to bring in sponsor money and donations. Wouldn’t you pay a friend to eat a cricket? The key to this one is to make sure it’s safe – You can buy bushtucker trial games online which include such delicacies as crickets, mealworms and locusts. Yum…
- Hand It Over
Get the donations pouring in with this trial. Have some boxes full of hidden horrors for people to put their hands in, blindfolded. The more disgusting the better! Think fish eyes, rice pudding, custard… The slimier the better! You could even hide stars amongst the gloop with different donation amounts on for the person to find.
- Face Your Fears
This one is bound to bring in the donations and sponsorships. There are plenty of companies that bring the zoo to you to enable you to meet some creepy creatures. The challenge would be to hold a snake, a tarantula, giant millipede or other creature – The more challenging the better!
- Flying High
Many of the celebs enter the jungle from great heights, and these sorts of challenges make fantastic sponsorship opportunities. Whether it’s a skydive or abseiling down a local attraction, friends and family won’t be able to say no to making a donation towards your fundraiser.
- Sleep Out
Of course, the celebs are all sleeping outside in their sleeping bags out in the jungle. A sponsored sleep out is a great way you could fundraise along the same lines! Make sure you get permission if you are planning to sleep out in a forest or public place.
Can We Help You Raise Money?
Here at Donater we have a suite of fundraising tools specifically designed to make giving easier. Easier for the donor to make a donation, and easier for charitable organisations to receive that all-important fundraising.
Our suite of online fundraising tools include:
- A dedicated online fundraising page, personalised to your charity or good cause. Supporters will immediately recognise your branding and thus, trust that they are in the right place to make a donation. Online fundraising pages are easy to share online via a handy link, and can be easily linked to your website with a ‘Donate Now’ button.
- QR codes. We’ve all become more accustomed to QR codes, so you’ll know how quick and easy it is to scan one with your smartphone. QR codes can be just as handy for taking donations. All your supporter has to do is scan the QR code with their smartphone, and it will take them to an online donation page. Once there, they can choose to donate with a tap via Google Pay or Apple Pay, or pay with their bank details. QR codes are a great addition to any physical marketing about your event, such as posters or newsletters.
- NFC Tags. Our NFC tags take the above QR code concept a step further, and enable any supporter of yours with an NFC enabled smartphone to merely tap the tag or sticker. They will then be taken to an online donation page where they can make their donation quickly and simply. These work better with in-person events, but could easily be placed at the entrance to your charity or on collection boxes so visitors can donate to your cause if they wish.
There are so many opportunities to raise money – And if you love I’m A Celeb then why not theme your fundraisers to your favourite show. Get in touch if you think Donater could help boost your donations digitally.
