Getting started with your fundraising

This July, families, friends and colleagues across the UK will be challenging themselves to ditch the duvet, banish the blanket and pack away their pillow to raise money for vulnerable children and families.

It’s free to sign up for Boycott your Bed – all we ask is that you try and fundraise as much as you can for Action for Children.

Not sure where to start? We’ll be sending you emails along the way, including helpful hints and tips. But if you’re looking for inspiration now, why not check out our fundraising resources?

Every penny you raise helps vulnerable children and families who are in desperate need.

Creating your team

Everyone is welcome to get involved and Boycott your Bed. You can take part solo, with friends, as a family, with your household, with colleagues or even your local community group. 

If you’re looking to build a team, or just keen to spread the word far and wide, we have lots of resources you might find useful, including templates, flyers and more.

Setting up your JustGiving page

Thank you so much for choosing to do something amazing and support Action for Children! To kickstart your fundraising you need to set up a Boycott your Bed JustGiving page.

We have put together a guide to take you through how to set it up, which should only take around 5 minutes.
