Magic Me relies on voluntary donations to support our work and receives no funding from the government.
We work with younger and older people, helping them to build their sense of wellbeing, sense of community and sense of purpose. We are on our way to building a stronger, happier society but cannot do it without the support of generous donors. These are very strange times and Magic Me is working harder than ever to connect people and champion the rights of people living in care settings to have full and interesting lives.
- If you have a place for the @LondonMarathon why don’t you consider running for our older and younger friends?
- Host an online pub quiz with your family and friends and do some fundraising for Magic Me. You can use our 26 London Landmarks guessing game. Our quiz sheet is here and you can find the answers here. If you’d like to show a bigger version of the quiz or project it for the family you can download a powerpoint version here (the last slide has the answers)
- If you are running free online workshops or activities and people want to pay – maybe you could ask them to donate to Magic Me – here’s the link for giving.
Here are some things that our supporters have done that might inspire you:
- Captain Tom 100 – Helen and Deborah took on the 100 challenge and raised over £2,000 for Magic Me! Helen made 100 things with fabric and Deborah drew 100 portraits.
- Play Dead London have taken their interactive murder mysteries online – knowing people are in need of entertainment but may be short of money they have made the tickets free but are supporting charities by asking for donations.
- Collage workshops – our previous communications manager, Deborah, ran Saturday morning collage workshops online, these were free, but people offered to pay, so she asked them to donate to Magic Me which has raised over £200.
- Kelly sold ‘Stay at Home, Save Lives’ t-shirts online and gave 100% of her profits to Magic Me.
