The global pandemic ruling out most events has seen charities needing to get more creative with their fundraising. We’re thrilled that our new monthly raffle on Facebook has been a great success, raising thousands of pounds for much needed mito research since it started in January.
We call the group ‘My Mito Mission’s Fab FUNdraising Friends’ and value each and every member. There are a maximum of 100 numbers sold monthly, so everyone with a number has at least a 1 in 100 chance of winning one of our 3 great prizes. And our first prize is valued at a fantastic £300!
As all the prizes so far have been donated by our wonderful supporters – EVERY SINGLE PENNY we’ve raised goes directly to our cause.
We’d love you to join us!
One of our ‘missionee’ families is spending their Easter Holidays not only raising awareness for mito and funds for research – but clearing up their area too.
Regan of Regan’s Mito Mission is seriously affected by mito, and his siblings Kai and Laci to a lesser degree. This hasn’t stopped the family setting out to collect an amazing 50 large bags of litter from around their home in Cradley Heath, West Midlands.
You can find out more and sponsor them here.
We’ve made it easy for anyone to make a small, regular, monthly donation. From £2 to £20 – or any amount – we know that a regular standing order is a preferred way for many charity supporters to help us to make a difference.
It can be for any of our individual missions or My Mito Mission as a whole and it’s REALLY simple to sign up … all done with a quick and easy online form through GoCardless.
Check it out here.
This year we’ve set a target to raise £1,000 on online sales and to develop it as a regular, growing income. We sell primarily on ebay, but also on Facebook Marketplace and Vinted.
If you’ve got any ‘good as new’ or new saleable items around your home that you’d be happy to donate – and if it’s feasible for us to get them – then we’d love to have them!
Or perhaps your workplace has items it’s happy to let us sell to raise funds for vital mito research?
Please see below for the kind of things we’re after and contact us with any enquiries or offers. If you sell on ebay yourself, please consider donating a percentage to us. You can find out more on our ebay page. Thank you!
