Fundraising and donations are of great importance all year round. However, winter requires additional efforts to boost donations and fundraising. This is due to existing struggles only being exacerbated by the threats that winter poses. Continuing with your winter donations help is essential in our constant struggle to avoid a winter emergency. 

The communities that we work with need your help more than ever during this time, and for thousands, the donations that we receive could be the difference between life and death. As a result, we take this time to invest plenty of time into fundraising so that we can collect a significant amount of donations. You may not feel like your contribution seems like a lot, but every penny counts for those who are struggling and in need.

To fight against the challenges that winter brings, we have established a dedicated Winter Appeal. This is to ensure that all homeless people, refugees, and those living in poor-quality housing are protected from the cold. Alternatively, you can browse our winter fundraising ideas or start a fundraiser on the UKIM website and promote our projects. Thank you for your help with donations this winter.

Why is Winter Fundraising Important?

Winter fundraising is crucial for charities. The main goal of every charity is to improve the world and make a difference. In the absence of funding, these changes simply can’t be made. Additionally, winter is the time in which most changes need to be implemented in order to save people in need from the cold weather and the struggles that come with it. A winter emergency can be significantly more damaging than at other times of the year.

Winter Fundraising Helps Further the Mission

The more money comes in, the more people across the globe can be reached and helped. For example, £30 can provide a child with a cold survival kit pack containing warm clothes, gloves, and shoes. This is an incredibly life-changing measure for one child and could save them from the dreaded fate of hypothermia, pneumonia, and other deathly illnesses caused by the cold. However, £1000 could build an insulated tent for a refugee family, acting as a more permanent measure to keep an entire family shielded from the cold and the threats that come alongside it. Ultimately, greater funding results in a greater impact.

Fundraising Shares the Cause with the World

Fundraising is all about reaching out to existing community members as well as new audiences. Charities are non-profit and rely on regular donations to keep going throughout winter. Our online platform is among the best ways to reach out to donors since we’re not limited to location. Similarly, our website is filled with information about what we’ve already achieved and what we’re striving towards. As a donor, you are able to make an informed decision about making your winter donation, knowing how it will help those in need. 

Fundraising Keeps our Generous Supporters Informed

Here at UKIM, we are incredibly grateful to all our regular donors. Our fundraising methods are perfect for keeping you in the loop. We inform you what can be achieved with each donation amount, bringing your contribution to life. Not only does this allow you to form a connection with the cause, but it also reassures you that we are accomplishing great things together. This is particularly important in the winter months due to the urgency at hand. 

Why are Winter Donations Important?

Though donations are important all year round, they’re of the greatest importance during winter. This is because winter poses many threats that can result in death, meaning urgent protection is needed. In order to deliver this protection, we require your generous donations. By implementing winter fundraiser ideas, we can ensure that we continue to maintain help and support to those most in need during these difficult times.

Temperatures Drop Drastically

People in developing countries are often forced to live in cramped conditions, where viral illnesses are easily transmitted. Common colds, influenza, and the coronavirus are typically fought off with relative ease in the UK; however, this isn’t the case in the communities that we work with. Their poor health means that their immune systems are weak, whilst limited medical facilities mean that they’re unable to receive inoculations and other treatments. 

To make matters worse, they often don’t have ready access to water, meaning that they’re unable to regularly wash their hands, further enabling the spread of diseases. As a result, thousands are dying unnecessarily from preventable illnesses. We rely on your winter donations to help us combat the deathly effects of winter illnesses.
