Now...during isolation   

As a result of COVID 19 crisis,  the fundraising team is devastated to have had to cancel/postpone the many events that we planned for last year for our 25th birthday and now for 2021.

So many schools and their pupils are very disappointed as we had to postpone their CAUSE To Dance sessions so why not take up our Cha Cha Challenge!  - a simple routine with Victoria from Dance NI or or Dance Yourself Happy  the lastest craze - a fun routine to Jerusalema!

A fun way to get active and some exercise with everyone in your household!

Later when 'Stay at Home' is over you can join us for a fantastic flashmob party!

However we have some wonderful fun activities and ideas for you to consider whilst in isolation - great and novel ways you can get behind us at this difficult time.

Check other activities - you know you will have a ball knowing that doing good does you good!

Why not devise your own virtual event for CAUSE - if it's good we will make it one of our signature events!

If you have any queries, please call Anne for a chat on 079 6688 3063  or email: [email protected]

Libraries NI provide helpful reading books to support children and young people with their health and wellbeing.  Books from the reading well for children or shelf-help collection are available to borrow from all libraries or there are ebooks available.


Later...when isolation is over

      

There are many ways your school can help raise money for CAUSE. We have interesting fundraising ideas to get you started, but we want you to be creative and support children and young people who have a loved one living with a serious mental illness. CAUSE To DANCE is our exciting and fundraising initiative for pupils of all ages!

Other ways to support us include:

  • CAUSE to DANCE
  • Host a Bake and Make Day
  • Take up the Smartie Challenge
  • Non – Uniform or Fancy Dress Days
  • Invite us to your Christmas Fair
  • Young Philanthropy Initiative - choose CAUSE - YPI provides secondary school students with real life experience through a strong academic philanthropy course that gives them skills to assess the needs of their community and direct grants to community based charities like CAUSE making a local impact upon those needs.
  • Name the Bunnies - an activity for very young fundraisers

If you would like our support in organising your event or to register your interest please call Anne on 028 90 650 650 or email: [email protected]
