Guiding is a great leveller and through it I met different people from different backgrounds. The human qualities that Guiding taught me became part of my life. I learned to be generous, to live in peace and help others. Through Guiding and community service, I learned about the realities of Mexico and it gave me a passion to help my country.Margarita Zavala, First Lady of Mexico
Fundraising is an interesting, fun and interactive way to support the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Get your creative thinking going and raise help raise money for girls and women around the world. Here are some ideas:
Raise funds online

Invite friends to sponsor you to raise money for WAGGGS
Think of something fun and do it to raise money for WAGGGS – it could be anything from a 5km run to cycling the Alps! Use a site like www.justgiving.com to set up a web page where your friends and colleagues can sponsor you!
Participate in a charity Challenge
Want a way to explore the world, challenge yourself, and raise money for a great cause? Sign up for a charity challenge for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts!
From single day to two week-long trips, from 5k walks to scaling the tallest mountain in the world, charity challenges offer you the choice to challenge yourself as little or as much as you’d like, all while raising money for WAGGGS. The more extreme the challenge, the more money raised for WAGGGS!
Best of all, charity challenges cost much less to the participant than organizing the same trip on your own. After paying a deposit, you pledge to find sponsors to cover the remainder of the minimum sponsorship level. Normally, over half of the minimum sponsorship level and every pound after that goes directly to WAGGGS.
Host you own fundraising event
You can host a fundraising event of your own – plan, organize and host a creative event or activity of your choice and raise money for WAGGGS.
