Craft in March

Craft every day this March to support families affected by MND. 

Get creative

This March, we are challenging you to craft every day in the fight against MND. Whether you choose to knit, paint, draw, crochet, paper craft or do something completely different, the money you raise will make a huge difference.  

Join our #TeamMND Facebook group, set up your fundraiser, and we'll send you a #TeamMND branded apron to get you started!

add remove

The challenge starts on Friday 1 March 2024 and runs until Sunday 31 March 2024. We recommend participants join as soon as possible, but you'll be able to join the challenge anytime, even after it starts.

How can I share my challenge progress?

add remove
Share videos, pictures, and posts of your crafts to your Facebook or JustGiving fundraising page and on your personal social media pages. For friends and family who aren't on Facebook, be sure to email and WhatsApp too.

Do Facebook charge a fee?

add remove
Like many other fundraising platforms, Facebook do charge a small fee to use their service which allows fundraising challenges like this to be easily created and shared to support the fight against MND.

Some of my friends don't have Facebook. Can they donate?

add remove
Unfortunately you need to have a Facebook account to donate to a Facebook fundraising page. You could ask people to give you the donation and then donate the funds to yourself to your Facebook page. Alternatively, you will be able to set up a personal MND fundraising page once you have registered via facebook messenger. Anyone will be able to donate to this page!

Can I use JustGiving or a sponsor form instead of a Facebook fundraising page?

add remove
Sure! If you don't have Facebook, the best alternative is our personal (social sync) fundraising pages. You can register for your free branded apron here and set up a personal Social Sync fundraising page. Make sure to click 'register with email'. 

If you'd prefer to use another platform or good old fashioned sponsor forms, that's absolutely fine. You can download a sponsor form or set up a JustGiving page.

Can the money I raise go towards a Tribute Fund or Fightback Fund?

add remove
Yes, if you'd like the money you raise to be recorded in a loved ones tribute or fightback fund that's not a problem. Email fundraising@mndassociation.org with your details, the name of the Fund and a link to your fundraising page and the team will organise that for you.

I don't think i can craft every day, can i still get involved?

add remove
Yes, of course. We are happy for you to adapt the challenge to suit you! 

Some of my friends are saying they can't donate to my Facebook page?

add remove
Like everything, Facebook sometimes has some glitches. If anyone is struggling to donate, ask them to try using a different device (e.g. another phone, laptop, tablet or desktop). This usually works!

I haven't recieved my #TeamMND apron yet.

add remove
We'll aim to send all aprons within 10 days of registration. Please be patient with us as we're a small team. If you haven't received yours within 14 days please email fundraising@mndassociation.org.

How much money do I have to raise?

add remove
There is no minimum sponsorship target to take part in the challenge. Every penny counts. The more money you can raise, the more support we can provide for people living with MND today. Find out more about how the money you raise makes a difference.

Do you have any ideas to help me fundraise?

add remove
Check out our fundraising tips for lots of great ideas. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you for crafting everyday, or you could even sell your crafts and donate the profits! However you choose to fundraise, you will be supporting the fight against MND.

How could I get more people to donate to my challenge?

add remove
We'll be sharing lots of tips and advice in the Facebook Group, so join if you haven't already. There are also resources available on our Fundraising Zone  to help you raise more awareness and sponsorship for your challenge. Our biggest top tip is to keep friends and family updated with your challenge progress by regularly updating your fundraising page.

Where does my sponsorship money go?

add remove
All of the money donated on your Facebook fundraiser will come straight to the MND Association which means you don't have to worry about transferring any money or handling any cash. Once we receive the funds we turn it into care and support for families affected by MND and fund vital research to better understand MND, develop treatments and one day find a cure.
