Anything that is dotty-themed that can attract people to donate to your cause is great! The most popular events are:
Ask your pupils, club leader or colleagues to join you and dress in dots for the day, and ask everyone taking part to donate a suggested amount.
Get creative with chocolate chips or arty with smarties, and hold a cake sale at your school, club or work. Think dotty tablecloths, cups and saucers and some delectable delights to sell.
If you’re a teacher, or if you run a children’s club or society, why not help your young charges discover facts about blindness and braille with our lesson plans, braille games and more? Activities can be combined with baking and/or wearing dots, and children and parents can also fundraise by asking friends and family for sponsorship.
Challenge your friends and colleagues to a ‘dot games tournament’ using dominoes, darts, draughts, hoopla, Connect 4 (registered sign), bingo, Twister (registered sign) or hula hooping.
If you’re a member of a knitting or sewing group why not create some dotty items you could sell? Paint people’s nails and ask for a donation, or print some t-shirts with dots to sell, maybe with names in braille
