Support a Cure this Christmas: fundraising ideas for the festive season If you would like to support The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) this Christmas we have put together six simple, festive fundraisers that you might like to take part in to help raise awareness and funds for our pioneering Parkinson’s research. 1. Spread the festive cheer by shopping the wonderful range of charity Christmas cards in CPT’s online shop. 2. Take advantage of AmazonSmile. It’s the same Amazon you know: same products, same prices and the same service. However this fantastic scheme allows you to donate 0.5% of every purchase you make to CPT at no extra cost to you! Alternatively, you can shop from over 4,000 retailers for your Christmas gifts via the Give as you Live website with every purchase you make generating free funds for CPT’s ground-breaking research. 3. Get together with work colleagues or your school to celebrate 'Christmas Jumper Day' 2019 on Friday 13 December. This is a great excuse to dig out your festive knits and donate to wear them. CPT can supply you with collection boxes and fundraising materials to help you mark the occasion. 4. If you don’t fancy receiving another pair of socks this Christmas, why not create a simple Facebook fundraiser in support of CPT asking your family and friends to make a donation in lieu of a Christmas present. 5. If you’re a running enthusiast or have always wanted to take part in a running event why not get involved in a fun and festive Santa run! Taking place in various locations across the UK, you can find your nearest event here. 6. If you have a busy December planned and are looking for a quick alternative to posting Christmas cards, charity eCards are a great way to send a festive message to your family and friends. With a selection of different designs from Don’t send me a card.com you can send up to 100 eCards at one time with your own personal message donating the cost of your cards and stamps to CPT. CPT would like to take this opportunity to say a huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us. We are extremely grateful and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
