We’re not really a fan of the whole ‘New Year, New Me’ mantras that tend to go around at this time of year. But January is generally a time when people embrace new habits and try to give up something for at least for a little while – And we can definitely get on board with that. Especially when it lends itself to some fundraising activities!
One particularly popular phenomenon gaining traction each January is giving being a Vegan a go. So if you fancy
Going Vegan Sponsorships
Going Vegan, even if just for a month, can be a pretty huge undertaking – Especially if you are a big meat-eater! This is just the kind of thing your friends and family can get behind you on and give you a bit of motivation in the form of sponsorships! Accountability and accruing funds sounds like a pretty great combination to us.
Vegan Bake Sale
A great way to embrace Veganuary whilst raising some money is to hold a vegan bake sale. Encourage your supporters to bake a Vegan friendly cake and donate it to your sale. You could even make it into a competition, selling the bakes afterwards!
Vegan Coffee Morning
If you are a community based organisation then a Coffee Morning is a brilliant way to bring people together to catch up over a cuppa and a slice of cake whilst simultaneously raising funds for a great cause. Make it Vegan friendly by using vegan milk in the coffees and vegan-friendly cake and biscuits and you’ve got yourself a Vegan coffee morning.
Vegan Recipes and Online Cook-A-Long
Do you have an avid vegan chef in your midst? Why not hold a vegan cook-a-long where people can see how simple the wonders of vegan cooking can be. Ask for a small fee or donation in order to attend online. You could even make your own vegan recipe e-book to sell to your supporters to raise extra money.
Supermarket Guides for Vegan Products
Going Vegan can feel a bit daunting for some – Especially when it comes to the weekly shop! Why not offer a simple supermarket guide or e-book that people can buy to help them quickly find the products they need to make Vegan eating easy as possible.
Don’t forget to include other vegan friendly products too – Veganism isn’t just about food! Remember products that have the Leaping Bunny on them are Vegan friendly too.
