Fundraise for Kumar
Fundraise for Kumar
Every day My Name is Kumar makes sure that former child beggars in Tamil Nadu go to school, and at the same time helps their communities grow. This work only continues thanks to a committed team of donors and supporters. Over the years people have cycled, run, swum and sold to raise money to support the work we do.
If you think you’ve got something to give in the name of Kumar (whether that be time, skill or sweat!) then we want to hear from you! We love hearing people’s original fundraising ideas, however if you’re keen but lacking inspiration we’ve got a few ideas for you below.
Who are we looking for?
Anyone can fundraise for us - as individuals, groups of friends, colleagues, community groups or school and university groups. Fill in the form at the bottom of this page and tell us a bit more about yourself.
What could I do?
Hold an event
Invite your friends round for a dinner party. You could cook up a curry for Kumar, asking each guest for a donation or hold a raffle to raise money.
Feeling sporty? You could organise a charity sports tournament with your local sports club, raising money through entry and during the event with a bake sale or lunch buffet.
Get social and organise a pub quiz or music night with entry fees going to charity. You could even provide some traditional Indian snacks to raise even more. Who could say no to a delicious onion bhaji, samosa or tasty chai?
Run, swim, cycle, walk or 'Kollywood' dance further and for longer than ever before. Ask friends for sponsorship to support you in your challenge.
Up for something a bit different? Maybe it’s time to shave off that scraggly beard or dye your hair. You could let the person who donates the most money pick the colour!
Celebrate a special occasion
Asking friends and family for a charitable donation is an amazing way to mark your wedding, birthday or anniversary.
OK - I’m in. How do I get started?
