  1. Ditch or Dare – Get your friends to challenge you with a bunch of dares.
  2. Host a dinner party – This is pretty much a win-win situation. You get to see your friends, they get to sample your delicious cooking and at the end of the evening, everyone chips into a Ditch the Label donation (chips…get it?)
  3. Go silent – give up your voice for the day in return for sponsorship.
  4. Recycle – why not recycle your old phone, tablet and gadgets and donate the money to Ditch the Label.
  5. Go on a (digital) holiday – Calling all social media addicts! Give up technology for a day in return for sponsorships.
  6. Have a clear out at home – Clear out your closet of unwanted junk and donate the funds raised – you could do this offline with a car-boot sale or online using eBay
  7. Jump from a crane – face your fear of heights and do a charity bungee jump for Ditch the Label.
  8. Do something for a mile – Skip, swim, jog, cycle, crawl – whatever you want, just do it for a mile.
  9. Do a marathon – what better excuse do you need to exercise? Your legs will thank you for it and your medal selfie is going to look literally so cool. Paint is optional.
  10. Quit – Give up a bad habit and donate the money to us instead! It could be anything from smoking, chocolate or makeup.
  11. Run a pub quiz – Just take it from us, it may be best to ban smartphones for the evening. It’s a really great and fun way to raise some money for a great cause (alcohol is optional).
  12. Get married – Yeah, that’s right. Get married! Instead of asking for wedding gifts, why not ask your loved ones to donate the money to Ditch the Label instead?
  13. Talk in third person for the day – In return for sponsorships, set a day where you refer to yourself in third-person. Consider making a video of your day to share online – mainly for the entertainment of others (us).
  14. Get active – Organise a charity football, touch rugby or tennis match and use it to raise money for Ditch the Label.. and to get one up on your best mates because you’ll be destined to be on the winning team.
  15. Save your change – You’ll be surprised at how much loose change you’ll accumulate over the period of a month. Save it and donate it.
  16. Host a party – Just please, for the sake of our legal team – don’t advertise it publically to randomers on social media! Host a party or gig and incorporate some cool fundraising activities.
  17. Auction away – Why not reach out to businesses and celebrities for donated products and experiences to be auctioned off for Ditch the Label?
