It’s easy to get started, it’s fun and most importantly you’ll be helping us make a difference to someone’s life.
Why fundraise for us.
Warmth is a crucial element for humanity. Warmth can often be taken for granted. At 300 Blankets, we recognise the importance for warmth especially for people experiencing homelessness. Money donated to 300 Blankets goes towards the purchasing and distribution of warm blankets to people in need, creating opportunities to build the warmth of friendship, and creation and execution of education programs to promote awareness and inspire changes to the face homelessness in our community.
How to fundraise.
Fundraise for us and change the lives of those living in disadvantage in Victoria. You can do pretty much anything to raise money for 300 Blankets – run a trivia night, hold a PJ day, run a race, hold a bake sale.
How it works.
Step 1 – Choose how you would like to raise money
Here are some ideas for how you might like to fundraise.
- Do a fun run or run a marathon
- Pledge your birthday – ask people to make a donation instead of giving you a gift
- Take part in a PJ Day where you wear your pjs to work, school or uni
- Sleep out overnight with a group of friends or family and experience what it might be like to be homeless for a night
- Hold a morning or afternoon tea
- Run a benefit gig or performance
- Cook up a storm with a sausage sizzle
- Host a movie night – highest bidder gets to decide the movies you watch
- Run a team building challenge at work
- Challenge your friends to a trivia night
- Hold a gala dinner or ball
Step 2 – Start fundraising
The easiest way to fundraise for us is to set up your online fundraising page at www.gofundraise.com/300blankets. Once your fundraising page is set up, email the link to your contacts and ask them to make a donation. You can also share the link to your fundraising page on your social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to include some information on what you are doing and why people should support you and 300 Blankets.
If you receive a cash donation as part of your fundraising campaign, please keep the cash safe and deposit it into our bank account as soon as possible, within seven days is best. There are a few ways of doing this:

When you let us know that you’ve made a deposit, we’ll post you a receipt.
