Have fun while raising funds for The Prem Rawat Foundation Campaign - Engaging in Peace
In the run up to Christmas Peace Partners is launching a seasonal Community Fundraising campaign.
The campaign will be running in tandem with Engaging with Change, an initiative being promoted by The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), which acknowledges the phenomenal contributions made by donors and volunteers in addressing the fundamental needs of people for food, water and peace.
Where does your money go? All funds raised in this campaign will go to TPRF to enable the foundation to expand its key initiatives, Food For People (FFP) and the Peace Education Programme (PEP).
Did you know that, from January to September 2018, almost 350,000 nutritious meals were served to children and infirm elderly people in the FFP and outreach centres in India, Nepal and Ghana. The growth of PEP this year has has been outstanding and it is is now running in 84 countries, translated into 36 languages.
What can you do? Your imagination is the limit, but bearing in mind the time of year, there might be opportunities to sell craft gifts at Christmas markets, perhaps ‘Bake Off ` fans could join together to run a cake stall (followed by a sponsored run, to banish the inner cake?). Maybe by inviting friends to a coffee morning, you could raise funds and also highlight the work being undertaken by TPRF.
Individual donations are also very welcome, and there is a DONATE button on our Fundraising page to help you donate simply and quickly: you can start fundraising HERE.
To coincide with the campaign TPRF will be releasing four inspiring videos, showcasing the peace initiatives and the humanitarian projects being funded by the foundation. The first of these videos will be devoted to the initiatives that took place in Lambeth, London earlier this year. This would be be a wonderful opportunity to show these videos at a coffee morning or any other community event you are putting on, or even to have available on a laptop at your Christmas market stall.
