Coffee Chats or Tea Talks
Catching up with friends or colleagues for a coffee or tea is always enjoyable. Why not do “coffee with a purpose”. This is a simple and powerful way you can be a voice for the Heart For Kids family of orphans and children living in poverty, as you go about your everyday life.
It’s just 4 easy steps:
1. Invite a friend around for a coffee or go out to a cafe.
2. Ask your friend about their interests and passions.
3. Encourage them to use these gifts to help others.
4. Gently challenge your friends, family or colleagues. We can ALL do something to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Share about your heart for the work of Heart For Kids.
Have fun and fundraise!
Do you have a passion to support the work of our children’s programs? Why not hold a fundraising event with your friends, family, work mates or church group? It’s as easy as 1,2,3…
1. Choose a fundraising idea to suit your interests – e.g. if you are part of a craft group, you may decide to host a knitting, sewing or scrapbooking party and raise funds for Doves Wings.
2. Let us know what you are planning – we can supply you with some helpful information, materials and support.
3. Have fun! Enjoy the event and remember that every dollar raised is a huge blessing to our brothers and sisters in Asia.
Hold an Heart For Kids Party
Hold a party, with a purpose – a #LetsHelpOneMore party! This is where we take some creative fun and turn it into transformation.
Here’s a few ideas!
- Don’t go out and spend a lot in a restaurant… have a night in with your friends. Enjoy DVDs, popcorn, chips and games – then donate what you would have spent on a night out.
- Dance the night away with a dance or dress-up party.
- Host a dinner party and raise money for your project of choice.
- Make toys or other small projects like candles etc with friends and fundraise for our children.
- Encourage guests to donate the value of the gift they were going to buy you to Heart For Kids at your next birthday party.
