Check out these great ideas for events and fundraising!
Teal is the new orange!
Teal is the colour of food allergy awareness, make your own DIY craft party to create ways to shine a light on food allergy. To help you get started, we’ve created a handy list of things you’ll need.
This idea has been gaining momentum in communities across North America!
The idea is to have a community gather with their cars in a parking lot where kids can dress up in their costumes and go “trunk-or-treat” – they go car to car and adults hand out allergy-friendly treats and toys from the trunks of their car.
The sky is the limit, use your imagination to come up with great fundraising events – like bake sales, dance-a-thon, and craft sales, to help raise awareness for food allergy at Halloween and all year long!
You can fundraise at school and raise awareness for food allergy at the same time. Many of the same ideas (DIY craft party, trunk-or-treat) can be adapted for the school environment. For instance, kids can go from class to class instead of car to car, and classrooms can have a craft party competition. Check out Danica and Delaney’s story of fundraising at their school.
This year, kids can sell our Shine a light bracelets for an easy fundraiser at school.
Help kids stay safe all year long by raising awareness and funds
If you want to help make a difference, but don’t have the time to put together a fundraising event, you can donate directly to Food Allergy Canada. Help us continue being able to educate, advocate, and support the over 2.6 million Canadians with food allergy. Your support is saving lives. Thank you.
