If you’re trying to think of charity ideas or looking for charity events to get involved in, consider using our Ultimate Fundraising Kit. By organising a charity fundraising event you can make a huge difference to the lives of children.

Thousands of Australians run charity fundraising events for Save the Children every year by joining our state events or organising their own. Whether it's riding across the country on a scooter, hosting a morning tea or running a marathon, there are lots of great ways for you to give something big to children by organising a charity event. 

Plus, organising a charity event is easy with our Ultimate Fundraising kit – which provides all the info you need including the impact your charity fundraising events have, how to come up with charity event ideas & implementing them and how you can meet other likeminded people wanting to improve the lives of children overseas and here in Australia.
