Superhero Fridays are a fun, different way to involve your organisation in fundraising. Grab your magic cape and star-spangled boots and become a Superhero to help us provide vital mental health support to Kiwi kids going through some of life’s toughest times
The best part about becoming a Kenzie’s Gift Superhero is that you can tailor your fundraising activities to best suit your organisation’s structure and staff.
We’re here to help you and your team, create fun, engagement and build morale within your employees.
Keeping the ‘super’ in Superhero, here are a few ideas to get the engagement and fun rolling with your team.
Set a superhero challenge and get sponsoring- have the the team, senior execs and CEO to dress as their favourite superhero for the day. Add in a spot of competition with an award for the best superhero.
Swear jar collections—a sure way to raise money and an idea to keep all year round!
Have a Superhero Coffee Challenge for a week and donate your coffee money.
Ask your CEO or Executive to dollar-match funds raised by your staff.
Hold a sales event and donate a percentage of earnings raised to Kenzie’s Gift.
Host a Superhero Breakfast
Spread the word about your #SuperheroChallenge on social media. Ask your friends and colleagues to share your posts and get involved. If you can’t organise an event, you can still use your superpowers to spread the word about Kenzie’s Gift.
Get a life-sized Superhero cut-out characters in your office along with a collection tin; charge for a photo opportunity and post to social media.
Promote Kenzie’s Gift on your corporate social media channels using #KGSuperhero.
Talk to your clients and contacts about Kenzie’s Gift and encourage their support too.
Use your advertising space to promote Kenzie’s Gift and Be a Superhero.
AND FINALLY... SOME EVENT FUNDRAISING TIPS
Set a date
Enlist some help
Ask whānau, friends and colleagues to help, approach local businesses for their support and engage your networks to maximise your fundraising efforts.
Make sure to tell your friends
Advertise your event far and wide. Put it across your social media with #KGSuperhero, in your newsletter, on your website, across your intranet…don't be shy.
Share the load
Designate jobs to colleagues. One group could be in charge of approaching local business, another to set up the event and another to clear away after the event.
Set your target
Set your sights high but make sure your target is achievable.
Thank you goes a long way…
Thank everyone who made a contribution to your event. Remind them that their generosity means that Kenzie’s Gift can go on supporting tamariki and families affected by serious illness and bereavement.
