Fast fundraising ideas?
January 7, 2014 4:08 AM Subscribe
A friend is taking part in an overseas house-building charity project starting in the middle of February. Participants are responsible for raising all their own travel and expenses costs. He has already completed a sponsored abseil, is holding a pub quiz this weekend, and has a Just Giving page which he is promoting on facebook. However he had a sporting accident 2 months ago and is only off crutches since the start of this week, which has left him behind schedule in his fundraising. He now needs to raise several hundred pounds in the next four weeks. We've been frantically brainstorming ideas and I thought I'd turn to the hivemind for help.

Have you organised or taken part in any successful fundraising activities that were:
-quick to organise and promote
-didn't involve too much initial outlay
-weren't too physically demanding (he tore his achilles tendon, which is mending well, but he is wary of damaging it again so close to the trip)
His workplace is small - about 30 people - but would probably be supportive of him organising at least one activity there.
All ideas are welcome! Thanks.
