You can download a 'Funds Raised' form here.

Do we have to fundraise to get our 100 badge

Not at all – all we ask is that you do something that will benefit Save the Children. 

Check your pack for ideas – but suggestions would be to collect/make 100 items that could be sold at a Save the Children charity shop, or share 100 positive messages about the work that Save the Children does. 

Remember that you don’t just have to work as a unit if you don’t want to, how about a district or division challenge?

How long do we have to complete the challenge?

The project runs until World Thinking Day in 2020, so we ask that you aim to have completed all of your challenges by then.

Can we do something that's not suggested in the pack to raise money?

Yes you can! Please share your fantastic ideas with us too, as we’re featuring some of our favourites on the website.

Can we hold a raffle or collection?

Yes you can, but bear in mind that there are some extra legal requirements. If you're thinking of holding a raffle, make sure you check the guidance here first (https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/get-involved/fundraise-for-us/fundraising-toolkit/ways-to-fundraise/fundraising-in-your-community/raffles-and-lotteries/) to make sure that your fundraising is legal.

How do I pay in my fundraising and badge money?

Please send a cheque made payable to The Guide Association Midlands at 21 Lower Church Street, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, LE65 1AB, stating how much is for badges/post and how much is fundraising, attached to the completed Save the Children forms.

How do I donate foreign coins via Travelex?

Please contact us at midlands.headoffice@girlguiding.org.uk with your name and address. This information will be passed on to Save the Children. You’ll receive a collecting bag in the post which you need to fill with your coins, write your name and address on and send to the address provided (please do not send it directly to Girlguiding Midlands). Easy!
