Raise up your gift of hope in silver and gold so we can bring life and sight saving care to all children.
Look after the pennies, and the pounds will look after themselves. Wise words, and a great way to clear your wallet of annoying little coins while also helping us bring hope of a brighter, healthier future to children with eye cancer, survivors and their families around the world! Add a twist of creativity to liven up your collecting and get other people involved.
Make Your Collection Pot Special
Place your collecting pot in a visible place, such as your hall table or kitchen counter. This will remind you to add your loose change each day, and quickly build up your gift. Every penny really does count!
Choose a decorative pot and make it a feature of the table, or find a plain container like a bottle or jar and decorate it to your liking. Add a small awareness sign telling visitors what your collection is about – they may want to support your fundraising!
Alternatively, request a collecting tin from our UK office. We can send these anywhere in the world. Just use the Contact Us form to request one.
Make Your Gift Taste Good Too!
Enjoy a tube of Smarties, Pringles or another happy treat that comes in a sturdy container, then refill the tube with your change. Have a race with your friends, family, classmates or co-workers to see who can fill their container first, or who can collect the most treasure and raise the most money.
This is a particularly fun and effective way to encourage children to collect for World Eye Cancer Hope.
