Fundraise

There are lots of fun ways you can get involved and get active to help raise funds for Peace Direct.

From cycling through Europe, swimming lakes in Geneva to taking on a walking challenge, there are so many ways you can fundraise for our life-saving work in war zones around the world.

It’s easy to get going. Set up a fundraising page where friends and family can support you, then begin spreading the word.

Run with Rob - donate your miles

Rob Pope is embarking on an enormous journey.

He is running across the United States to raise funds and awareness for causes he really believes in – Peace Direct and WWF.

He’s already crossed the nation once, running from Mobile, Alabama all the way to Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California.  Now he has turned around and is running back across some 18 states to the Marshall Point Lighthouse in Maine.

It is a huge distance that will take months to finish.

With more than 100 marathons between him and the finish line, Rob would love your support.

Peace by piece

Roll up your sleeves and get baking for peace!

Could you host a coffee morning, afternoon tea or cosy cake-filled night and turn tasty treats into tools for peace? No matter your preference, savoury or sweet, the important thing is to get people donating and talking about peace.

Through your culinary efforts, make the world of difference to people living in war every day. This is your chance to rescue a child soldier in DR Congo or to persuade a young person to turn their back on extremism in Somalia.

Why not inspire your guests with some incredible example of how our work is helping people on the ground?

Get in touch with Ruth at: ruth.tidy@peacedirect.org for advice or personal accounts and success stories from our projects across the world.
