I’m sorry to hear about your co worker – good on you for doing something positive about it! If you aren’t sure, try and keep it simple. Perhaps do it in your home, or in your local pub (they are usually always happy to give you a private room for free for this kind of fundraising) or maybe even in your workspace after hours. Just get asking and see what sort of response you get.
A quiz is often a simple fundraiser to put on as then you don’t need to worry about entertainment. If you really are nervous about organsing something entirely, how about simply asking your local pub quiz if you can do a raffle during the break. They will already have a full pub and a quiz master set up. You then just need to get some prizes and sell some tickets on the breaks. You can get friends and family to get some teams together.
If you want any more advice or want to run some ideas past me, just drop me an email (contact me page).
All the best 🙂 Bex x
Though it has its roots in Buddhist meditation, a secular practice of mindfulness has entered the American mainstream in recent years, in part through the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and his Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, which he launched at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979. Since that time, thousands of studies have documented the physical and mental health benefits of mindfulness in general and MBSR in particular, inspiring countless programs to adapt the MBSR model for schools, prisons, hospitals, veterans centers, and beyond.
