I spent a lot of the last week quite tired and fed up thanks to moving house and work. Despite this towards the end of the week I was seized by a sudden burst of energy and enthusiasm.
The focus of this? My resolutions list, particularly item 3- Cross at least one item off the Bucket List. I’ve been thinking and planning a few of them, and will keep you posted.
One of the items is to raise £1m for charity. I’ve known from when I added this to the list that it would be something that took time, with me chipping away at the amount over the years.
Which has got me thinking about what I can do to raise some cash? I’m nowhere near healthy enough to do a race at the moment (although hopefully after shifting some weight I can get back into running) and I’m not crafty enough to make things to sell.
I’ve thought of a few lazy fundraising ideas:
- Bad movie marathon- people donate and suggest terrible films for me to watch. I try to watch as many as possible.
- Blog marathon. I try to write as many blog posts as possible in 24 hours. Although would probably help if I invested in a decent laptop first.
- Tattoo auction. People bid to chose what marks part of my skin. Massively risky, but would generate publicity.
- Man vs Food challenge. Would seriously damage my weight loss attempts, but would count as crossing something else off my list.
Would you donate to someone doing one of those? Or have any ideas of your own for how I can raise some money? If so, you know what to do. BETEO.
