Things to do 'virtually.'

  • Nominate Ape Action Africa on 'Amazon Smile'
  • Nominate Ape Action Africa on 'EasyFundrasing'
  • Gift Aid all donations (UK only) - This adds 25% to your donation, at no additional cost to you.
  • Hold an online auction of items donated by family and friends or auction your time/ services to them - Here's a guide to set this up on Zoom!
  • Why not host an online 'virtual' coffee morning, tea, or dinner party for your family, friends, or colleagues and spend some quality time sharing Ape Action Africa stories and photographs from our website? - Here's a guide to set this up on Zoom!
  • Virtual' bingo! It doesn't have to be a numbers game; you could use photographs of our primates and see who can get 5 chimpanzees in a row first! - Here's a guide to set this up on Zoom!
  • Hair raising (or should that be hair erasing?!) ideas to generate funds for our orphans include completing a sponsored eyebrow or leg wax, beard or head shave… or all of the above… live online!
  • Fancy trying to break a world record while raising vital funds? - You don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home! See this guide for some inspiration!
  • Stream an online DJ set, poetry reading, or comedy night and showcase your talents to the world while raising much-needed funds.
  • Karaoke! - It's time to warm up those singing voices and get ready for a night of karaoke. Love it or hate it, it's something everyone can join in with and raise money for our primates while raising the roof!! You can find songs online if you don't have all the equipment!
  • Instead of asking for lots of pressies, this year makes a real difference by getting your nearest and dearest to donate to Ape Action Africa instead. Facebook, in particular, makes it super easy for you to use your birthday to raise money for this cause which is so important to you - 
  • Ladies Day/ Ladies who lunch! Get your female friends together and throw a ladies day (or evening). The first challenge will be deciding which cocktails and canapés to have, followed by the challenge of deciding what to wear and then ask each guest to donate to our charity while you share some of the stories from our website!
  • Quiz night - You don't need to be together to quiz together! Chose your theme and get working on those questions. You host the night on Zoom, and guests pay to play. Simple... but the questions might not be.
  • It's a classic charity fundraising technique that provides an interesting insight into how much your friends are willing to pay to watch you go through pain! A packet of wax strips (maybe some tea tree) and a zoom room are all you need to raise money with an online wax off!
  • Online Games and Gaming - Why not host a virtual talent contest - Which household has the most talent? Singers, dancers, magicians, and doggy tricksters all welcome to enter for a fee! Alternatively, you could hold an ​Xbox / PlayStation night - Make this gaming session one that matters by inviting people to play for a donation to Ape Action Africa.
