Is there a charity you feel massively passionate about? Today is your chance to make a difference to them and help change the world! Join 5 other teams from across SOAS who are currently smashing it and raising some world-changing cash. Click here to get inspired by their stories!
SOAS Careers is excited to run a ‘Change the World’ competition: where we encourage you to get creative with fundraising! Apply by 11:59pm TODAY to get involved.
Thanks to funding from Santander, this is your opportunity to get creative and raise some serious cash to change the world. You will be given a lump sum of £25 to get the ball rolling with your fundraising. Your task is simple: grow this as much as you can, any (legal) way you can! Get as creative as you like – the sky really is the limit!
All the money you raise (including the initial £25) will then be donated to your nominated charity. SOAS Careers will also match the amount you raise (up to a max of £500). The organisation just needs to have a registered charity number in order to be eligible. You can enter by yourself, in a group or as part of a Society.
You will need to document your fundraising and reflections on your successes and challenges as you go. This can be via blog posts, vlogging or any way you dream up – the more the original the better! Your efforts will then be celebrated at the Make a Difference Awards in February at SOAS. We’ll invite the charity of your choice along so that you can find exactly how your efforts are helping to change the world!
Interested? To enter just submit a proposal (max. 500 words) outlining:
> Which charity you wish to support and why
> Your grand plan for growing the initial £25 exponentially
> How you will capture and document your fundraising process.
To get involved, send over your proposal to email@example.com by 11:59pm on Weds 17 January. All the proposals will then be reviewed by a judging panel from SOAS. The lucky entrepreneurs will need to be available on Tues 23 January to collect the £25.
