Fancy feeling a warm rosy satisfied glow inside? If you do then it might be a good idea to get involved in some charity fundraising. Apart from the obvious worthwhile aspect of helping your fellow human beans, doing some charity fund raising can help to improve your self-esteem and self-confidence.

You may be the type that of person that always thinks about getting involved, but never actually does. If that’s the case then maybe it’s the perfect time to stop procrastinating and get stuck in. Spring is an excellent time of year to get involved, with the winter out of the way people are much more keen to get involved in outdoor activities which can make great charity fundraising opportunities.

With the Olympics coming up this spring is a spectacularly good time to get involved in sporty fundraising activities; over the next few months people all over the country are going to be getting obsessed with sports. So join in! Get involved, get in shape, make some friends, do some good, raise some cash and kill a whole flock of birds with one stone.

While we would highly recommend sporty stuff at the moment, we know it’s not going to be the best idea for everyone. There are endless things you can do to raise cash for charity and many of them don’t even involve doing anything difficult of unpleasant! In fact there are loads of charity fundraising activities that are tremendous fun e.g. organising a bake-off at work. You could get a bunch of people to make a whole load of baked goods then bring them in to work. Everyone in the office would get the chance to try a little piece of each person’s culinary creation. Then the tasters could vote for their favourite with their cash. The baker who received the largest amount in donations would be given the title of Office Master Baker.

If you really don’t have the time to get involved in anything major at the moment then you could help out by doing something quick and easy like submitting a photo and idea to this great fundraising activity from cheap train tickets website redspottedhanky.com. For every fundraising idea submitted they’ll donate 10p to Railway Children and for every photo they’ll donate £1 (up to a maximum of £500).

Just remember that doing charity fundraising is a win win win situation. The people that the charity helps win, the fund raiser wins and the people doing the giving win.
