table of cakes for a cake saleThere's no limit!

We are so fortunate to have been the beneficiary of so many fundraisers conjured up by our supporters over the years!  We have ambassadors who have grown plants from seed to sell at car boot sales, we've had beautifully made crafts, knitted toys, cross-stitch greeting cards, stunning bunting lovingly made for us to sell at our events and we have ambassadors who spread the word about the wonderful projects GAGA partners with and raise funds at their self-organised music events, like a Gilbert & Sullivan night.

People have enjoyed a coffee and slice of cake, or a beer and a burger and all the time they've been contributing to a fundraiser for us!  Some supporters have forgone their own birthday gifts and set up a birthday fundraiser instead, or told friends and family that in lieu of sending Christmas cards they are giving the cash they would have spent to GAGA UK.

Some people have even overcome their fears and taken to the skies to participate in a "Loop the Loop Challenge" or taken up the physical challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or doing all four Wolf Runs in one year!  Just imagine how you would feel if you had achieved a personal goal and helped to provide pre school places for children in rural communities in South Africa!

Here's an extract from Tania's Kilimanjaro blog

This last push to get to Uhuru peak was dreadful! Many thoughts of, ‘what the heck am I doing?’ why? Can you even do this? …...BUT I had reason, I had reason to get to the top. The one constant thought I had was of all those littlies at HOLAH and what they would be benefiting from with the funds I had set out to raise for them, I needed to conquer Mountain Kilimanjaro.

There really is no limit to the imagination when it comes to raising money.  Here at GAGA UK, we know the amazing impact just a few pounds raised here can have. 

pre school child concentrating

Gogo£10 can provide a hot lunch for 10 Gogo's (grandmother's) who are often the sole carer for many grandchildren and will go without food herself to provide for the little ones. 

£15 can pay for a child in South Africa to attend pre school, a critical part of early learning.  So whatever your passion.. can you use it so that together we can change lives?
