10 ways you can help!
With all future fundraising plans cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve never needed support from our community more. We need to fundraise for our vital services, which help bereaved children and young people and those who are facing the loss of a loved one. Please help us to support every family that needs us.
What can you do?
1 – Donate to our Urgent Appeal– any amount you can spare will go a long way in ensuring we can support the many families that sadly both need us now and in the coming months.
2 – Complete a JigsawforJigsaw! Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to pass the time and spend time with your loved ones. Share a photo of you and your family with your completed Jigsaw with a link to our urgent appeal and you will be helping us spread the word about how people can support us at this critical time.
3 – Hold a Virtual Bucket Collection– simply set up a Justgiving page and let people know you’re holding a virtual bucket collection for Jigsaw (South East) and you’ll be supporting us with the significant loss of funds from our community collections this Summer.
4 – Jog for Jigsaw! Challenge yourself or your family to run or walk a 1k, 5k, 10k, half marathon or more. Whether in a day or across a month or two, set up a fundraising page and ask family and friends to sponsor you a few pounds to reach your goal. (Please follow government advice when exercising outdoors).
5 – Donate your day – If you’re currently stuck at home and missing out on that morning coffee, train fare, takeaway lunch or more – please consider donating the cost of your day or simply a coffee to our urgent appeal.
6 – DIY fundraiser! Set your friends and family a challenge! Whether it be a danceathon, a readathon, bakeathon a sponsored silence or a sponsored jump on the trampoline, we would love to see just how creative you can get to support us at this difficult time.
7 – Set up a Facebook birthday fundraiser!We know this is a difficult time for those with a birthday coming up – if helping us would bring a smile to the birthday girl or boy, we would be delighted to be part of your special day (please let us know if setting up through Facebook as we don’t currently receive notification but we do receive the funds!)
8 – Make your Amazon purchases through Amazon Smile and at no extra cost to you, we will receive 0.5% of the cost as a donation.
9 – Join the weekly Tandridge Lotteryand be in with a chance of winning £25K, whilst supporting Jigsaw (South East). You don’t have to live in Tandridge to take part and you can play for as little as £1 a week.
10 – Shout about us! Like and share our social media pages, our posts and our story to help spread the word about the important work we do for local bereaved families and those facing the loss of a loved one. We need to reach people online now more than ever and single share means so much to us. Our handle for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is @jigsawsoutheast
9 – Look out for other ways you can help over the coming weeks – we hope to post some exciting ideas!
However way you choose to support us – don’t forget to let us know and share your pictures!
