Check out these virtual fundraising ideas and support Action Against Hunger’s lifesaving work from the comfort of your home.

As the pandemic impacts nearly every person on the planet, vulnerable communities affected by conflict and hunger need our urgent support.

Now more than ever we need to come together. Use your extra time indoors for good, by helping to fundraise for Action Against Hunger’s humanitarian work fighting hunger and COVID-19 around the world.

Take a look at the ideas below and download our virtual fundraising guides, packed with ideas so you can make an impact from the comfort of your home!

Create your page

Our top three ideas to get you started:


Use the extra time at home to have a clear out and sell any unwanted items online! Try eBay, Depop and Facebook Marketplace to sell your wares and donate some or all of the profits to Action Against Hunger.


Pick a challenge and recruit friends to join you – or take on a different chosen challenge of their own. Use Just Giving or Facebook Fundraiser to take donations and why not live stream your challenge on social media for extra promotion!

A few ideas:


In the spirit of food-related fundraising, create dinner party hampers with all the ingredients and a recipe for people to make at home. Set a price for each hamper depending on the size of the household, and deliver to your guests’ doors.

Top tip: why not encourage neighbours to cook and eat on the same night and then host a virtual quiz or play after dinner games for extra donations!
