Support fostering this Christmas

You are here

2020 might not have been the year we were expecting, but we’ve really enjoyed hearing about all your fundraising efforts and want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us this year. If you would like to show your support during the festive season, here are some more ways you can get involved!

As Christmas decorations go up and festive jumpers are dusted off, there are lots of ways that you can get ready for 25 December AND support fostering this Christmas.  Read on to find out how.

Christmas cards

If you’re planning on sending Christmas cards this year, why not buy yours from The Fostering Network?

Proceeds go towards supporting our vital work and you will
be helping to raise awareness of fostering. We have seven festive designs to choose from including our brand-new polar bear design.

Cards cost £4.99 (plus postage and packaging) for a pack of 10. The cards are plastic-free and do not
contain glitter making them easy to recycle with each pack coming wrapped in paper binding. 

Donating to us with no cost to you

Head over to Amazon Smile (use your normal Amazon log in details) and The Giving Machine for all your online Christmas shopping needs… and all of your future shopping! Simply log in and choose The Fostering Network as your charity to support and a percentage of your purchases will be donated to us - at no extra cost to you. Buy and give at the same time!

Xmas Party Heroes 

The current restrictions have meant many businesses unfortunately won’t be able to hold their Christmas parties as usual this year. Instead, you and your organisation could make a big difference to fostering families by becoming #XmasPartyHeroes and donating the unused costs of your Christmas party to The Fostering Network. Once you have donated, simply share the news on your social channels using
#XmasPartyHeroes – don’t forget to tag us in! Find out how to get involved.

Lottery

You can also sign up to play our charity lottery. For just £1 a week you will be supporting fostering AND be in with a chance of winning £25,000! Draws happen weekly and there are other cash prizes on offer. Find out more about how you could be a winner. 

We have some great fundraising ideas coming up in 2021 so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more ways you can get involved. If you have your own ideas for a fundraiser, we would love to hear them so please get in touch and we can help you with your fundraising!
