This would have to be the simplest charity challenge ever. All you need to do is get together with a couple of friends, catch up and make a donation.
WHEN: Any time in November 2014. You pick the date.
TIME: You pick the time
DURATION: It can be as short or as long as you want it to be
WHERE: Your house, or a friends house… you decide who the host is, and take it from there
I’M GOING TO HOST SOME FRIENDS, NOW WHAT DO I DO?
Once you have chosen you day and time, and invited a few friends/colleagues/sports team to join you – Email me your chosen date and which State/Country you are located, or post the details onto our facebook page. Contact details below.
WHAT DO WE EAT AND DRINK?
Ask everyone to bring a bottle of bubbly, and a plate. Recipe for Mars Bar slice here.
HOW DO WE DONATE?
Leave a bowl in the middle of the table, and ask everyone to make a donation during the catch-up.
A good way to decide how much to donate is to work out how much you would have spent if you had all gone out for a dinner together, or a night on the town, and subtract the amount you have spent on your bubbles and snacks, and donate the difference…. Or rather than splashing out on Veuve, buy a much cheaper bubbles, and donate the difference in the bottle price.. or even just throw a coin in the jar. How much is up to you.
At the end of your event, I will provide the bank account details for your State/Countries chosen charity.
GLOBAL COMMUNITY SPIRIT
To keep everyone in the spirit of things, I will be posting regular updates (including photos) of Veuve and Mars Bar slice events being held globally… and a running total of funds raised (and perhaps bottles disposed of?)
AFTER THE EVENT
After your event (or during) please send me photos that you are happy to have shared on Organised Chaos and/or our facebook page. Don’t forget to let me know how much you raised. Contact details below.

LETS GET STARTED
Please forward and share this Charity Challenge with everyone you know. Every dollar we raise can mean the difference between children going to school with shoes on their feet or breakfast in their belly. What would your life be like if your children didn’t have these basic needs met? Sharing the challenge is the first step in getting involved.
