Five ways to give this Winter #givingtuesday
It’s the run up to Christmas and the holiday season, and so the perfect time to give to good causes. Giving Tuesday is an international campaign, which raises awareness of the importance and benefits of donating to charities. This year the event is on 27th November and is promoted in over 70 counties worldwide including the USA, Brazil, Russia and Singapore. In the UK, over 2000 organisations are involved in the movement including BT, The National Gallery, Macmillan and Great Ormond Street Hospital. The campaign helps to raise millions of pounds for amazing charities.
Here are five ways you can get involved with the campaign and give to Creating Better Futures this winter;
1. Sponsor a child
During the holiday season, it is a great time to sponsor a child for just £18 a month. This will provide a child in Zimbabwe with school fees, a uniform and enrolment in our feeding programme as well as basic medical care. Your donation will directly improve a child’s future and give them a gift which lasts a lifetime – the gift of education and a brighter future.
In return for your sponsorship, you will receive a picture of your child and a letter every term updating you on their progress. You will also have the opportunity to send them a letter and get to know them.
- Buy our Christmas cards and calendars
This year instead of sending the cliché Christmas cards to your friends and family – why don’t you send one of our personal and unique Christmas cards and support a great cause at the same time?
The cards are £8 for a pack of 10, or £1 each. We also have Thank You cards at the same prices and calendars at £5 each. All the profits go into one of our projects in Zimbabwe, so you get a card or calendar and a child in Zimbabwe gets a brighter future!
To purchase any of these items please email firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Raise awareness
A great way to give to our charity is to follow our social media and share some of our posts to help raise awareness for CBF.

You could also discuss the work that our charity does with friends and family and encourage them to get involved!
- Support one of our projects
Any donation you provide to Creating Better Futures will give great benefit to the children we support. CBF runs great projects including education, feeding clean water and sanitation – so please get involved! A small amount of money to you is a life changing amount for a vulnerable child or orphan in Zimbabwe!
- Give a child a gift this Christmas
In the run up to Christmas and the New Year, why not donate towards our Christmas Fundraiser and give a child in Zimbabwe a gift this Christmas?
- £10 could feed 10 children for a month
- £20 could pay for a child’s school uniform
- £40 could pay the school fees for two primary school children for a month
- £100 could provide reusable sanitary packs for three girls, so they won’t have to miss school every month
Please donate towards our fundraiser at https://www.give.net/creatingbetterfutures/fundraising and help develop a better future for these children.
