Christmas Donations instead of cards - How it works

Christmas Hampers and Raffles - How it works

  • Appoint a staff member to take charge. 
  • Your appointed person can circulate information by e-mail - which will be provided by Give Kids a Chance.
  • Staff are asked to contribute one item to a Christmas Hamper.
  • All donations are collected and assembled in boxes ready for a raffle.
  • Raffle tickets are sold on an agreed date (decided by the individual companies/organisations taking part) the raffle will be drawn and the hamper(s) won.
  • As the raffle is limited to staff, cloakroom tickets can be used and all prizes are distributed among staff.
  • Funds raised can then be sent to Give Kids a Chance

This is a simple fundraiser that companies, organisations, GP Surgeries, Hospital Wards, Family Centres, Community Centres or, dedicated departments within organisations can take part in, irrespective of size.

Over the 8 years our Christmas promotions have been running, over £68,200 has been raised for Give Kids a Chance.  During Christmas 2010, 16 workplace locations across Grampian organised raffles, numerous people sent donations instead of sending Christmas Cards and we received the proceeds of two Christmas Concerts.  This raised a total of £8,200.
