FUNDRAISE AT WORK!
Organising a Toilet Twinning fundraiser at work is a great way to bond as a team and change the world, one toilet at a time!
Why fundraise for Toilets?
For two years, Ruth and her family lived in a squalid refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo without any toilets or water. But then they moved to a different camp: one that has brand-new toilets and showers because they were installed in a project that Toilet Twinning helped fund!
For years, Ruth wasn’t sure she could keep her family alive. ‘Now we can protect ourselves and our children from diseases,’ she says.
For every £60 your workplace donates, you can twin with a toilet that’s been built by a family in Africa, Asia or Central America.
If your donation is £240 or more, you could twin with a refugee block in DRC or Bangladesh.
Choose from the following toilet-themed activities and games to raise money for families like Ruth’s…
Hold ‘The Toilet Games’ in your lunch hour
Use our cut-out sheet to draw ideas from a hat and choose at random which games you’ll play on the day. May the poops be ever in your favour!
‘Hold a ‘Blue for the Loo’ day
Everyone donates £2 or more to come into work wearing something (or everything!) blue. You could even order in some blue wigs! Turn it into a fancy dress contest.
Bake for Bogs
Our Bake for Bogs kit provides all you need to plan a Soggy Bottoms bake sale, including a poster, toilet-themed recipes (what’s a bake sale without poo emoji cupcakes, brownies, and chocolate logs?) and games.
Chicken Poo Bingo sweepstake
Print off our bingo poster and rules, and play our Chicken Poo Bingo sweepstake.
Set up an online giving page and encourage friends and family to support your efforts to twin your workplace WCs:
Just Giving – search for ‘Toilet Twinning’ when you register or go direct to: JustGiving
Share your ideas, events and fun on social media so we can shout about your fundraising efforts and let everyone know how great you are! It’s also a good way to invite people outside your organisation to support you if you set up an online giving page. Tag Toilet Twinning so we can share your posts!
Once your group is ready to donate, you can make a BACS transfer to us online (please include your school’s name as a reference):
Account name Toilet Twinning
Sort code 20-00-00
Alternative, you can send a cheque (payable to ‘Toilet Twinning’) to:
Toilet Twinning, 1052–1054 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH7 6DS.
We won’t automatically send out twinning certificates – so if you want to put Toilet Twinning certificates in your school loos, please get in touch to tell us how many you need and if you want the school name on each of them.
If you raise £240, don’t forget that you can twin with a school block in Mozambique, Malawi, Nigeria or Tanzania – or a refugee block in Bangladesh or DRC.
